Silver shines like gold in the flood light

Unfortunately, it is ‘only‘ silver but it appears to be gold for the guys...

Update - Friday, 20.15 CET

At a stand of 19:19 in set number two, the tension started to rise into an infinite extreme. But Italians Alex Ranghieri and Adrian Carambula finished the set and therefore the match into their favor and claimed gold. The way Huber/Seidl handled the skyserve of Carambula was phenomenal

Conclusion: A first final and a first silver medal for Xandi Huber and Robin Seidl. After a season full of struggles and never being even in the top 20, it is such a relief for them to be amongst the top players again.

The craving for a medal and defending their title was to tempting. Xandi und Robin placed the balls perfectly – out of reach for defender Flüggen.

Beachl volleyball legend Randy Stoklos mentions during his FIVB Youtube channel that he bets on the Poles and thinks they are going to win this tournament. Would you agree?
