ZONE CONTINENTAL LONDON OLYMPIC GAMES QUALIFICATION CUP SECOND DATE IN COLOMBIA WITH ARGENTINA DEFEATING BRAZIL

Great date for Forguez-Albano in Colombia

Guatupe, Colombia, December 9, 2011 - The Continental Cup that will qualify four countries for the next competition towards London Women Beach Volleyball Olympic Games gets exciting as Argentina overcame the undefeated Brazil team. Now, Brazil leads with 15 points followed by Argentina with 13.

Half day was totally positive for Argentina. On one side, the first ranked women Argentine team, Ana Gallay-Virguina Zonta overcame Brazil 2 (Thais-Livia) 2-0 and on the other Luciana Forguez-Gabriela Albano overcame the Uruguayan 2 team of Karina Cardozo-Eugenia Nieto, celebrating their first victory in a terrific tie-breaker 2-1.

In the afternoon, Brazil got revenge on the "classical" South American match with the main teams of each country facing each other. Camila-Isabela won their fourth consecutive match with a 2-1 over Gallay-Zonta, even though the light blue - white team started winning the match.

In the last match of the date, Forguez-Albano pushed Argentina to the top of the ranking with their victory over Colombia 2 (Fraija-Salamanca), winning 2-0.

A good Saturday could leave Argentina among the final Continental competition. Gallay-Zonta will face first Colombia 1 (Galindo's sisters) and Uruguay 2 (Cardozo-Nieto), while Forguez-Albano will play against Venezuela 2 (Mosquera-Agudo) first and then Uruguay 1 (Guigou-Gómez).
