Russian pairs reign supreme at inaugural Belarus Open
News from the Zonal Associations

Bobruisk, Belarus, June 24, 2013. The Russian teams did rule this past weekend as the EEVZA Beach Volleyball Tour stopped for the very first time in the Republic of Belarus and namely in the city of Bobruisk. A Beach Volleyball stadium was set up on the main square named after Lenin for what was a real premiere in the country that is set to host – later this year – the 2013 CEV U18 Beach Volleyball European Championship in Molodechno.
The weather was not that good on Sunday as the final matches were contested but still many fans found their way to the venue of the tournament and even the sun started shining through the clouds. In the semis home heroes Andrei Zharykou and Aliaksandr Kavalenka played Russia’s Alexey Yutvalin and Grigory Goncharov. The guys from Novosibirsk claimed the first set but the local favourites responded well by seizing the second after a very close battle (24-22). Still the Russian players could exploit their experience and the Belarusian duo had to be content to play for bronze later in the afternoon. In the other semi-final Russia’s Evgeny Romashkin and Alexander Kullo edged Latvia’s Aleksandrs Solovejs/Rihards Finsters under heavy rain.
Yutvalin/Goncharov did edge their compatriots Romashkin/Kullo in the final match by showing good serving and great consistency in defence. Before a large crowd, Kavalenka and Zharykou did eventually celebrate bronze after beating Solovejs/Finsters – who recently finished fourth at the U23 World Championship in Myslowice, Poland – 2:1 (12-21, 21-18, and 15-11).  

The women’s tournament did distribute valuable FIVB Ranking Points and eventually did see the Russian pairs impose their supremacy. After finishing second this past May in Vilnius, Anna Alova and Anna Markova beat their compatriots Ekaterina Syrtseva and Irina Chaika 2:1 (21-14, 17-21, and 15-10) to celebrate gold in Bobruisk. Bronze went to another Russian duo, Nadezhda Makroguzova and Daria Rudykh, that could best their compatriots Olga Motrich and Daria Yarzutkina.  

The next stop of the EEVZA Beach Volleyball Tour is scheduled for July 12-14 in Pärnu, Estonia, and will see only the men in action.
