Russian Beach Volleyball Tour Finals up and running in Sochi
News from the National Federations

Sochi, Russia, September 1, 2017. The final stage of the 2017 Russian Beach Volleyball Tour started on Thursday at Sport INN Beach Sports Complex in Sochi, the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

As many as 32 men’s and 24 women’s teams are competing in the pool stage of the tournament, with the men contesting one round on Thursday – and the women playing two matches on the opening day. The main favourites in the men’s competition are reigning U22 European champions Oleg Stoyanovskiy/Artem Yarzutkin, who two years ago claimed the Russian senior national title as well. On the Russian domestic tour, Alexander Likholetov and Ilya Leshukov have been doing very well so far with three gold and one bronze medal to their name. The two have high hopes for the competition in Sochi as well – and both Stoyanovskiy/Yarzutkin and Likholetov/Leshukov started the tournament on a high note.



Im the women’s competition, Thursday’s most interesting match featured 2017 U22 European champion Svetlana Kholomina and her partner Olga Motrich versus Ekaterina Syrtseva and Daria Rudykh. After a match lasting for one hour and played under heavy rain, Kholomina/Motrich emerged as the eventual winners after an incredibly close game (26-28, 23-21, 18-16).

Despite the bad weather conditions and a tornado that hit the city of Sochi some days ago, the stands of Sport INN complex were full of fans. The spectators could join some photo contests and other activities prepared by the event’s partners with a free ice cream as an award.

The competition in Sochi will continue on September 1 with the remaining matches of the pool stage.
