'Sweet Victory' for Walsh and May 
Gstaad, Switzerland, June 21, 2003 - Defending champion Misty May and Kerri Walsh of America gained a "sweet victory" over Brazilian rivals Ana Paula Connelly and Sandra Pires Tavares on Saturday by defeating them in the final of the Women's Gstaad Open, the second stop of the 2003 SWATCH-FIVB World Tour. The Americans, last season's World Tour champions, won a close first set 23-21 before securing the gold medal with 21-15 triumph in the second, making amends for their loss to the new Brazilian partnership in the semifinal of the Rhodes Open last weekend.
