Top seeds through to third round at NEVZA women’s zonal event in Odense
News from the Zonal Associations

Odense, Denmark, June 9, 2017. The top-seeded teams lived up to their status as seven out of eight tandems from the top 8 made it to the third round of the NEVZA Beach Volleyball zonal event in Odense after successfully contesting their respective matches on Friday. Only fifth-seeded Cecilie Køllner Olsen/Lærke Mygind Grønfeldt of Denmark failed to do so, losing surprisingly in an exciting three-set match (21-17, 12-21, 14-16) to the 12th-seeded Swedish team Fanny Lindström/Lisa Sundberg.

The Danish weather showed itself from its changeable side for the second weekend in a row as 23 teams turned out to compete at the NEVZA women’s tournament in Odense. The day started with wonderful sunshine and high temperatures, but in the afternoon the clouds rolled in and the players had to adjust to compete under heavy rain.

The favourites, however, showed their best game, while the lower-seeded teams have to go through the losers’ bracket Saturday morning to keep fighting for the top honours in the event on Danish sand.  

The Danish team consisting of the experienced Jannie Nørregaard Rasmussen and youngster Freja Holme Barkler were the first ones to leave the competition, finishing their journey in 17th place. Unfortunately, the team had to withdraw from the tournament after they almost caused a major sensation and had match balls in both the second and third sets of their matchup with Sweden’s Isabelle Påhlsson/Sara Malmström before eventually losing 21-19, 20-22, 14-16. A little injury prevents the Danish team from continuing their campaign on Saturday.

The forecasts promise fine weather for the rest of the weekend with no rain and temperatures around 20 degrees, and Sunday even up to 25 degrees.
