Bronze For Andorra, Luxembourg On The Beach

LIMASSOL, 5 June 2009 - Andorra's men and Luxemburg's women were the winners of the bronze medals in Beach Volleyball at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

In men, it only took 33 minutes to Andorra's Xavier Folguera Estruga and Christian Salvador Campillo to defeat Monaco’s Frank Gopcevic and Thomas Widiez. Estruga and Campillo took control early in the game and ended up winning fairly easy in straight sets 2-0 (21-14, 21-17).

The case was not the same in the women’s bronze game. Liechtenstein’s Bettina Mähr and Petra Walser were ahead by 20-16, needing just one more point to take the first set against Luxemburg’s Jeannw Schneider and Norma Zambon. They did not take it, as the Luxemburgians made a superb comeback to win by 23-21!

The second set was similar, as Liechtenstein went ahead by 7-0, but again… found a way to lose the set, together with the medal… This time, the girls from Luxemburg reacted a bit earlier, as they first tied it at eleven (11-11) and then never looked back, winning by 21-14. It took 40 minutes in total for Schneider and Zambon to post their great win.
