News from the Zonal Associations

Durrës, Albania, September 18, 2017. The Albanian Volleyball Federation (FSHV) hosted this past weekend the 2017 edition of the Balkan Beach Volleyball Championship. The tournament took place in the city of Durrës, right by the Adriatic Sea, with participation of 12 women’s and 16 men’s teams. The event was part of this year’s CEV Continental Tour, and as a result, teams from Israel and Switzerland featured among the entries as well.

Serbia’s Lazar Kolaric and Djordje Klasnic were the eventual winners of the men’s tournament, while Panagiota Karagkouni and Konstantina Tsopoulou of Greece stood on top of the podium at the end of the women’s competition.

Kolaric/Klasnic beat Switzerland’s Quentin Métral and Simon Hagenbuch in a closely contested final (2-1; 25-23, 18-21, 15-13) as Turkey’s Murat Giginoglu and Hasan Hüseyin Mermer settled for the bronze medal following the withdrawal of their compatriots Yusuf Ozdemir and Ali Cebeci from the ‘small final’ due to injury.

Karagkouni/Tsopoulou beat Romania’s sensation Adriana-Maria Matei/Beata Vaida – the silver medal winners from this year’s U22 European Championship – in two sets (23-21, 21-19) as Aleyna Vence and Bugra Eryildiz of Turkey completed the podium.

For the Albanian Volleyball Federation, the organisation of this event was a great victory, because all participants deserved warm words towards the work done on site by the local staff and many fans followed the games, which the national television broadcast live.
