Portugese gold for London beach players

Richmond’s Javier and Joaquin Bello achieved a momentous win in Cortegaça, Portugal over the week-end on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, the 21 year old twins beating home favourites, Pedrosa and Campos 17:21 21:15 15:8

A full report has been published on the Volleyball England web site and reminds us that the brothers beat their own record set almost two years ago when they took bronze in Rubavu, Rwanda – the first ever World Tour medal for an English or British men’s team. They also won gold in the 2017 Youth Commonwealth Games.

Teammates Issa Batrane and Freddie Bialokoz also impressed at the competition which took place from 12th -15th August at the Portuguese Volleyball Federation’s beach volleyball performance centre. They narrowly missed out on a spot in the semi-finals.
