News from the National Federations

Macedo de Cavaleiros, Portugal, August 21, 2017. Juliana Rosas/Tânia Oliveira and Roberto Reis/Fabricio “Kibinho” Silva retained their titles at Portugal’s Beach Volleyball national championships, as the competition took place for the eight consecutive year at Praia da Ribeira in Albufeira do Azibo, Macedo de Cavaleiros.

Juliana and Tânia rallied to a 2-1 (25-23, 18-21, 15-8) victory in the women’s final against the young and promising team of Marta Hurst/Gabriela Coelho, the 2015-2016 university national champions and winners of this year’s first tournament organised by the AFV-PLP. Vanessa Paquete and Joana Resende – last year’s vice-champions – finished third after edging Daniela Loureiro/Brigida Ferreira 2-1 (21-9, 12-21, 15-6) in the bronze medal match.



In the men’s event, five-time (2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016) national champions Roberto and Kibinho claimed their sixth title after defeating 2-0 (21-19, 21-14) the young Portuguese international team Francisco Pombeiro/Jose Jardim. In the match for the third place, Januario Silva/Sebastiao Leao won 2-0 (21-15, 21-18) against last year’s runners-up Fabricio Barros and Jose Pedro Monteiro.



These finals included a tribute to referees António Moreira and António Vaz de Castro, who this past weekend finished their refereeing career, marked by several high moments in Volleyball and Beach Volleyball, both nationally and internationally.
