Menegatti/Orsi Toth braced to take World Champs momentum to #EuroBeachVolley
CEV EuroBeachVolley 2019

Rome, Italy, July 25, 2019. Marta Menegatti and Viktoria Orsi Toth of Italy have high expectations for the upcoming EuroBeachVolley in Moscow, especially after securing a historic fifth place at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships held in Hamburg earlier this month.

As a team, Menegatti and Orsi Toth have a fifth place at EuroBeachVolley on their resume from the 2014 edition held in Cagliari, Italy – but Menegatti is a former European champion as well, as she claimed the gold medal a way back in 2011 in Kristiansand, Norway together with former partner Greta Cicolari.  

“The European Championships are one of the most important events that any athlete can play,” says Orsi Toth, whose family moved from Hungary to Italy when she was a little kid. “This will be my second EuroBeachVolley appearance after 2014 and I am sure that I will start this journey with a lot of motivation and excitement.”

This confidence comes from the latest results achieved by the Italian team: “I am happy with the latest achievements this season,” adds Menegatti. “We are working very hard this year together with Vicky to achieve our goals. I believe that the fifth place at the World Championship was a step in the right direction and now we want to make sure that we can match and, if possible, improve what we did in Hamburg when competing at EuroBeachVolley in Moscow.”

As a team, Menegatti and Orsi Toth have two World Tour gold medals to their names – from the Sochi Open in Russia in 2015 and the Agadir Open held in Morocco last year – while Menegatti is a two-time Olympian as well – in 2012 and 2016 with Cicolari and Laura Giombini, respectively.
