Mehamed-Etchegaray among the best four teams of this stop

Cartagena, Colombia, April 7, 2012 - Even though there are no Argentine Women Teams at the 7th stop of the South American Beach Volleyball Tour as they are training hard in Brazil for their Olympic dream that will be settled next June at the Continental cup in Argentina facing Uruguay, Ian Mehamed-Santiago Etchegaray are already at the men's competition semi-final series that is taking place at the beaches of the Resort Las Americas Hotel.

At the closing of the qualifications for the final phase, in the first match this Saturday, Etchegaray-Mehamed overcame the best Uruguayan team, Pérez-Molina without any problems 2-0 (21-16, 21-10) to top the pool that also qualified the host Colombian 2 team.

The Quarter-Final duel had special seasoning because the rival was the host Colombia 1 team, Cuesta-Cabrera, that eliminated the other light blue - white jersey team of Lisandro Rouzic-Julián Azaad. At this point, Etchegaray-Mehamed obtained a revenge Argentine victory 2-0 (21-15, 21-17).
