News from the FIVB

Langkawi, Malaysia, April 15, 2019. Two European teams made it to the women’s podium of the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour 1-Star event in Langkawi where Lara Dykstra and Cassie House of the United States won their second straight title from the circuit.

The Americans eluded eventual bronze medal winners Konstantina Tsopoulou and Dimitra Manavi of Greece in the semi-final 2-1 (17-21, 21-8, 19-17), before foiling the strong start of Ukraine’s Diana Lunina and Maryna Samoday in the final with a tight finish (16-21, 21-19, 15-13). Tsopoulou and Manavi regrouped from their semi-final setback to claim the bronze medal match against Japan’s Mayu Sawame and Yurika Sakaguchi (13-21, 21-13, 15-13).

The USA pair won their first gold medal in Battambang, Cambodia on April 7, while the Ukrainian team placed third in Satun, Thailand on April 11. Manavi and Tsopoulou celebrated their second straight podium finish as well after losing the gold medal match of the Battambang event to Dykstra and House.
