Ahead of this summer’s biggest beach volleyball event, the A1 Major Vienna presented by Swatch, Austrian World Championship silver medalists Clemens Doppler and Alex Horst survey their home city.
Twelve months ago, legendary veterans Doppler and Horst wrote their own fairytale, winning silver at their home World Championships. Now, a year later, the crowd favorites are out to conquer the beach, their city and their fears.
Standing on the other side of the net on top of the Riesenrad are two of beach volleyball’s rising stars. The future of the sport lies in the hands of Anders Mol and Christian Sørum, the Norwegian youngsters who are one of the most-talked about teams on the sand.
The Scandinavians are on their own mission and want to write their own names into the history books and become the youngest winners of a Beach Volleyball Major Series tournament.
But which team will raise their game when beach volleyball makes its return to the Danube Island? Doppler and Horst will be hoping that every cloud has a silver lining.
The A1 Major Vienna presented by Swatch is from August 1-5 on the Danube Island.
