1. There were new winners of Gstaad’s iconic golden cowbells after Canada’s Sarah Pavan and
    Melissa Humana-Paredes knocked reigning champions Chantal Laboureur and Julia Sude of
    Germany off of their throne in a sensational final. In front of a packed Swiss crowd, Sarah and Melissa edged a tight first set 21-17 before the Germans bounced back to take the game to a decider. In a thrilling seesaw third set, Chantal and Julia missed a chance to retain their title only for the Canadians to fight back and claim gold 17-15. The gold was world number ones Pavan and Humana-Paredes’ second Beach Volleyball Major Series crown after their triumph in Pore last season and their second of 2018 following their triumph in the Commonwealth Games.
    Canada had two teams on the podium after Heather Bansley and Brandie Wilkerson took the
    bronze medal – the team’s fourth medal in five tournaments. Their 21-19, 21-13 win over Agatha
    Bednarczuk and Eduarda ‘Duda’ Santos Lisboa was their first podium finish in a Major Series
    event together.

  2. Beach volleyball Vikings Anders Mol and Christian Sørum wrote themselves into the history
    books as they hammered their way to Swatch Major Gstaad gold. The fearless youngsters, just 22 and 21 years old, stood tall on top of Vienna’s iconic Riesenrad last month. And the pair proved they have a head for heights as they crushed Spain’s experienced Pablo Herrera and Adrian Gavira in the Swiss Alps – the highest beach volleyball tournament in world at 1,050 meters.
    The 21-18, 21-12 victory ensured Anders and Christian became the youngest Beach Volleyball
    Major Series champions and ended a 20-year wait for a Norwegian team to win a FIVB World
    Tour title. Having missed out on a gold medal in their previous appearance in a World Tour Final in Brazil in May, the Scandinavian rising stars made no mistake to clinch a cowbell to begin a new era for the Vikings.
    In the bronze medal match, 2016 Olympic silver medalists Paolo Nicolai and Daniele Lupo edged
    a thrilling 61-minute epic against Americans Taylor Crabb and Jake Gibb. The Italians lost the first
    set but fought back to win 17-21, 21-16, 20-18 to take their second Beach Volleyball Major Series
    medal of the season after their silver in Fort Lauderdale.
