News from the Zonal Associations
Vilnius, Lithuania, June 18, 2012. The first stop of this year’s EEVZA Beach Volleyball Tour was completed this past weekend in Lithuania’s capital city with a total of 25 teams from Russia, Belarus, Latvia and the hosting country competing for glory there in Vilnius.
Aliaksandr Dziadkou/Yauhen Vishneuski of Belarus eventually stood on top of the podium after they edged last year’s U20 European vice champions, i.e. Haralds Regza and Armands Abolins of Latvia, in a very close final match (18-21, 21-17, and 15-12). The podium was completed by a duo from Russia, Grigoriy Goncharov/Anton Safonov, who cruised past another pair from Latvia, Arnis Tunte and Girts Glazers, in the classification match (21-13, 21-14).
