Men's Hellas Open 
Rhodes, Greece June 4-8 2003

Island of Rhodes launches 2003 Tour with a flourish 

Rhodes, Greece, June 8, 2003 - The first event of the 2003 SWATCH-FIVB World Tour drew to an exciting close on Sunday here on this picturesque Greek island when the world's leading men's teams battled it out for the title on a court set up in a historic square just adjacent to the beach. And to capture the advantage of the magnificent Mediterranean evening air it was, as it will be at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, held under lights. In what is certainly a landmark year for this exciting Olympic sport, the event, a men's Open one week before the women also meet here for their season's opener, was characterized by highly competitive play that illustrated that the gap between the dominant Brazilian and USA players and the rest of the world has narrowed. From now on there will be little room for the top teams to coast through to the round of sixteen in comfort. More  Spanish
