Russian pairs finish first and second at Vilnius Open
News from the Zonal Associations

Vilnius, Lithuania, May 12, 2013. In an all-Russian final match Olga Motrich/Irina Chaika could eventually edge their compatriots Anna Alova/Anna Markova in straight sets (21-16, 21-17) to win the Vilnius Open, the first stop of this year’s Beach Volleyball tour promoted by the Eastern European Volleyball Zonal Association (EEVZA). The tournament did write history since for the very first time an event held by a Zonal Association distributed FIVB Ranking Points to the participating duos.
Motrich/Chaika had found their way to the final match after edging another Russian pair in the semis, namely Nadezhda Makroguzova/Darya Rudikh, with a speedy 21-11, 21-9. In the other semifinal, Anna Alova/Anna Markova – who had made it to the top four after going through the losers’ bracket – upset the local heroines and 2012 Youth world champions, Monika Povilaityte and Ieva Dumbauskaite, with a straight-set win (21-14, 24-22). The Lithuanian teens – who in 2011 were crowned U18 European champions in Vilnius – got back on track to settle for third place as they cruised past Russia’s Makroguzova/Rudikh in the consolation final (24-22, 21-12). 
“We are very happy to win here because it was quite a great tournament with a lot of strong pairs, especially from Russia” Motrich and Chaika said. “We haven’t been playing together that long so this victory here in Lithuania is a very good result for such young partnership. The EEVZA Beach Volleyball Tour has got an extra motivation this year for all players as FIVB Ranking Points are at stake in every tournament. This is just great and we hope to continue playing this way also in the next stops of the Tour” they concluded.
