Olympic and world champions, Alison and Bruno have ended their partnership after 4 years playing together.

 

Any word on a new partner for Alison? By far my favourite beach volleyball player in the world, so I hope he finds a good partner.

While Bruno already announced he will play with his old partner Pedro Solberg, nothing about Alison yet. I hope he announces something soon.

For those who are interested (@heywoodu), Alison will play with André, which was world champion last year with Evandro - they just won a title in the world tour this past weekend!

 

This move by André has been seen as pretty shitty and Evandro is clearly pissed (in portuguese).

What a mess. I think CBV should control that. End the partnership without giving satisfactions or reasons. A pity, the duo was a medal in Tokyo. I hope Evandro gets over this well.

surprising results at the 2nd 5* tournament of the season in Gstaad (SUI)...

 

the men's Gold medal match will be Herrera/Gavira (ESP) vs Mol/Sorum (NOR), after the Spaniards defeated Nicolai/Lupo (ITA) 2-0 and the Norwegians defeated Crabb/Gibb (USA) 2-1 in the semifinals...

the Bronze medal match is scheduled at 5.15 p.m. CET, the Gold medal match follows not before 6.30 p.m. CET

 

in the women's division, the semifinals and the finals are scheduled for tomorrow...

the quarterfinals: Agatha/Duda (BRA) defeated 2-1 Larsen/Stockman (USA), Humana-Paredes/Pavan (CAN) won 2-0 against Klineman/Ross (USA), meanwhile the remaining 2 quarters are still to be completed (Hermannova/Slukova, CZE vs Bansley/Wilkerson, CAN and Laboureur/Sude, GER vs Murakami/Ishii, JPN)...

so, also among the girls not your usual top 8 (in part, at least)...

Anders Berntsen Mol & Christian Sandlie Sorum are the new Gstaad champions in the men's division, giving Norway the first success in the World Tour exactly 20 years after the last one (Kjemperud/Hojdalen, Berlin 1998)...

in the Gold medal match they won 2-0 (21-18, 21-12) against Herrera & Gavira (ESP)...

the Bronze medal went to Paolo Nicolai & Daniele Lupo (ITA), who defeated Crabb/Gibb (USA) with the score of 2-1 (17-21, 21-16, 20-18)...

 

in the women's division, the last 2 quarterfinals went to Bansley/Wilkerson, CAN (2-0 over Hermannova/Slukova, CZE) and Laboureur/Sude, GER (2-0 over Murakami/Ishii, JPN)...

meanwhile the semifinals have been won by Humana-Paredes/Pavan, CAN (2-1 over Agatha/Duda, BRA) and Laboureur/Sude, GER (2-1 over Bansley/Wilkerson)...

the Bronze medal match is scheduled for 1.30 p.m. CET (basically, in 5 minutes time); the Gold medal match to follow, but not before 2.45 p.m. CET
