Maybe they just gave up seeing how only money talks in FIVB...

 

Just like about any other organisation.

Well, they got screwed in Rio qualification. I don't get how FIVB can have such a low sense universiality in beach volleyball (funnily that wasn't the case in the indoor volleyball)... Big nations have milion chances to qualify a full team. Continental cups are already ridiculous since more than one good team is required, and yet FIVB manages to make it even more unfair by allowing already qualified nations to compete. :facepalm: And don't get me started on how Russian women's beach team suddenly became eligible to compete at the final QT despite failing to qualify for that.

 

In short, nation like Vanuatu will never qualify in these conditions, no matter how hard they try. :p

Brazil won the two gold medals in the U21 World Championship :clap::clap: Our future in beach volleyball is very well.

 

In the first set of the Men's Final, we were losing by 14-20, and we won the set by 22-20. :lol:

Wow, Varenhorst/Van Garderen in the semi-finals of the world championships :hyper:

 

Pretty surprising, since Varenhorst's status gave them a wild card and Van Garderen only came out of the indoor hall on to the beach a couple of months ago :d

Bronze!! :clap::clap: Finally Larissa and Talita won a medal. Anyway, this was a not very good championship for Brazil, only two pairs in the Quarterfinals.

I agree, not a great championship for us, but I thought we wouldn't even get a medal. That bronze medal match was so close!

10-7 in the final set of the women's final and the Dutch broadcaster goes back to the studio: "I'm sorry ladies and gentlemen, our time is over." :bowdown:

Our girls were so disappointed because they didn't come home with a medal, they have only played 7 tournaments together which is great that they already have such high goals and results behind them. A few years ago I would've never thought we would have 7 teams in world championships of Beach Volleyball.

Brazilian players are the ultimate party poopers, aren't they? :p 

 

Winning against a Dutch team in the WCh final in the Netherlands, winning against an Austrian team in the WCh final in Austria... :d

So our worst ranked pair in the men's side wins gold, who would have thought.

 

Good start, but I bet we're gonna see a lot of changes among our teams after this championship.
