Lausanne, Switzerland, December 20, 2013 – The last edition of VolleyWorld for 2013 brings together all the high points of the volleyball season in pictures and provides a round-up of all the action at the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup in November.

As the curtain was brought down on another successful beach volleyball year, this edition of VolleyWorld takes a closer look at the duos who topped the FIVB World Tour season rankings in the men’s and women’s competitions.

Readers can get the story of Latvia’s Janis Smedins and Aleksandrs Samoilovs rise to the top as well as that of Brazil’s golden girls, Talita Antunes and Taiana Lima.

What awaits volleyball and beach volleyball fans in 2014?

More teams than ever will take to the courts as the number of teams participating in the World League and World Grand Prix are set to expand. And with the World Championships taking place later on in the year, there will be no shortage of excitement.

In beach volleyball, there is a packed calendar of World Tour Grand Slam and Open events and another addition to the age-group tournaments, the U17 World Championship. And as we head into the next year, beach volleyball prepares for its debut appearance at the Youth Olympic Games in August 2014.
