Women's Austrian Grand Slam 
Klagenfurt, Austria 30 July - 2 August 2003

May and Walsh Triumph Again
Klagenfurt, Austria, August 2, 2003 - America's Misty May and Kerri Walsh successfully defended their A1 Klagenfurt Grand Slam title on Saturday after crushing arch-rivals Ana Paula Connelly and Sandra Pires Tavares of Brazil in another surprisingly one-sided final on the SWATCH-FIVB World Tour. The 2002 World Tour champions collected their third title of the season, and their second in succession, with a 21-17, 21-12 victory, a result that mirrored their gold medal triumph in Marseille two weeks ago when they were also convincing winners over the Brazilians. Third place went to Adriana Brandao Behar and Shelda Kelly Bruno, the Brazilian duo securing the bronze with a 21-17, 21-18 victory over Americans Holly McPeak and Elaine Youngs earlier in the day. more French German Spanish Pic: Klagenfurt champions Misty May (R) and Kerri Walsh.
