Forguez-Albano and Gallay-Zonta will play in Brazilia

Brasilia, Argentina, April 10, 2012 - This weekend, Brasilia will be as usual the opening stop of the new season of the Women SWATCH FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour. The two Argentine teams that dream on their chances for the London Olympic Games 2012 will compete in a very hard Qualy towards the Main Draw as part of their preparation for the Continental Cup that will face them with the Uruguayan teams next June, with the winners getting the ticket for London.

Ana Gallay-Virginia Zonta and Luciana Forguez-Gabriela Albano, that are now training in Brazil for their Olympic dream, will be among the 71 teams from 35 different countries announced this Tuesday by the FIVB for the first stop of the 2012 season.

The two Argentine teams will battle in the Qualy against 46 other teams for a place at the Main Draw. The best 24 teams will then fight for the first title.

The two Argentine teams working under the coaching of professors Pablo Bernardi and Cristian Jacob come from competing at the South American Tour stop in Asunción, Paraguay, after a long training period in Argentina.
