Qualifiers Kuvichka and Kislytsyn secure gold at 1-Star event in Malaysia
News from the FIVB

Langkawi, Malaysia, April 15, 2019. Russia have been the major force to reckon with in Snow Volleyball this year, but if we move to the sand, their teams are performing very well too. On Sunday, Daniil Kuvichka and Anton Kislytsyn outplayed their compatriots Andrey Bolgov and Vladislav Ermilov in the all-Russian finale of the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Langkawi 1-Star in Malaysia.

Kuvichka and Kislytsyn prevailed in their semi-final encounter with Poland’s Adrian Sdebel and Piotr Ilewicz to make it to the gold medal match. The Russians lost the first set to the Polish side at 17-21 before they fought hard to avoid elimination with a tight 21-19 win in the second set. In the third set, the Russian pair built up a big lead to complete their comeback at 15-7.

Facing their compatriots Bolgov and Ermilov in the final, Kuvichka and Kislytsyn dictated the tempo throughout the match, winning 2-0 (21-16, 21-15). The Langkawi men’s final marks the second all-Russian men’s FIVB World Tour gold medal match. Ilya Leshukov and Konstantin Semenov defeated Viacheslav Krasilnikov and Oleg Stoyanovskiy in three sets at the Yangzhou 4-star final on October 14, 2018.

Kuvichka and Kislytsyn became the 25th men’s pair to capture an FIVB gold medal after qualifying for the main draw. This feat has now occurred 26 times with the Russian team of Taras Myskiv and Valeriy Samoday accomplishing the feat twice last season in Ljubljana and Vaduz.
