Great Performance By Cyprus Duo

LIMASSOL, 3 June 2009 - Cyprus has become the first Women’s Beach Volleyball Team to qualify for the semifinals of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

The host team of Manolina Konstantinou and Mariota Aggelopoulou overcame the challenge of Luxembourg and their representatives, Jeanne Schneider and Norma Zambon, winning 2-0 in 40 minutes for their third overall victory at the Games.

The victory over Luxembourg has been described as the most crucial so far as they were tipped as favourites in the competition following their two straight victories.

Cyprus are now on course to secure top place in the pool and a win in their next two games could see them with a strong chance of securing a medal against the team finishing fourth in the other pool.

They next take on Liechtenstein on Wednesday at 18:30.

In the other game in the women’s event, Liechtenstein got their first victory after beating Andorra 2-0 (21-7, 21-14) in 36 minutes.

A total of five teams are still in contention for the remaining three semifinal spots including Iceland and Andorra - who have both suffered two consecutive defeats so far – as there are three pool games still left to play.
