Kings of the Beach Mol/Sørum nominated for People’s Sports Award in Norway
News from the National Federations

Oslo, Norway, December 11, 2018. Reigning Beach Volleyball European champions Anders Berntsen Mol and Christian Sandlie Sørum are among a bunch of elite sportspeople nominated by Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet for the People’s Sports Prize of the Year 2018. The online voting is open until December 18 at midnight and Dagbladet will be announcing the eventual winner(s) on December 22. Click here to cast your vote!  

Mol and Sørum, who in November received the CEV award for the ‘2018 Kings of the Beach’, are not only the reigning European champions but also the no. 1 team from the 2018 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour. Earlier this year, they won consecutive gold medals from the Major Series held in Gstaad and Vienna, the World Tour Finals in Hamburg and the 4-Star event in Las Vegas.

The Beach Volleyball Vikings literally skyrocketed to the top of the world at the age of 21 and 23 – and they have already set their sights on next year’s World Championship in Hamburg and EuroBeachVolley in Moscow.

Mol and Sørum are among the nominees for the prize that Dagbladet have conferred annually since 1990. Their rivals for the prestigious award are:

-    Magnus Carlsen, reigning world chess champion
-    Johannes Høsflot Klæbo, winner of three cross country skiing gold medals at PyeongChang 2018  
-    Ada Hegerberg, the world’s best female soccer player
-    Marit Bjørgen, a double gold medallist from PyeongChang 2018 and eight-time Olympic champion in cross country skiing
-    Karsten Warholm, reigning world and European champion in the 400 m hurdles
-    Jakob Ingebrigtsen, reigning 1500 and 5000 m European champion at the age of 18
-    Håvard Holmefjord Lorentzen, speed skater, Olympic champion over 500 m and silver medallist in the 1000 m event  
-    Maren Lundby, 2018 Olympic champion in women’s ski jumping
-    Aksel Lund Svindal, 2018 Olympic gold medallist in the downhill event at PyeongChang 2018  

No Volleyball or Beach Volleyball player has ever won this prestigious award, so why not to help make it happen this time around?
