World champions Brouwer and Meeuwsen are Team of the Year in the Netherlands
News from the National Federations

Nieuwegein, Netherlands, December 17, 2013. Alexander Brouwer and Robert Meeuwsen – who last summer caused a sensation by winning gold at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship in Stare Jablonki, Poland – were awarded as the Dutch “Team of the Year” in a special gala co-hosted by NOS | NOC*NSF in the Netherlands. They eventually edged the competition brought by the men’s speed skating team as well as by their colleagues from rowing.
Brouwer and Meeuwsen turned into the second European pair – after Germany’s Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann had done so in 2009 – to win gold at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship. They beat Brazil’s Ricardo Santos and Alvaro Filho in the final match that rounded out a memorable campaign. Brouwer and Meeuwsen will be trying to retain their title in 2015 as the next edition of the World Championship will take place in their home country.
As they addressed the audience, Brouwer and Meeuwsen thanked their coach Gijs Ronnes who has been at their side for the last four years: “You have been with us for four years and without your help we would not have been able to achieve this amazing result” they said from the stage.
