Brasilia, Argentina, April 16, 2012 - While the men's teams still have to participate of their Qualy among very demanding all word teams at the first stop of the 2012 season of the SWATCH-FIVB World Tour the two women teams won experience at the Qualy for the Continental Cup on their way to London 2012. Now Santiago Etchegaray-Ian Mehamed and Julián Azaad-Martín Conde will have their chances this Tuesday

First Ana Gallay-Virginia Zonta were defeated 2-0 by the Swiss team Joana Heidrich-Romana Kayser in 37 minutes with the set score as follows: 21-16, 21-19.

Then, Luciana Forguez-Gabriela Albano were very near of adding their first victory at the World Tour but were defeated in a tie breaker by the Scandinavian team 1-2 (17-21, 21-18, 12-15) after fighting nearly one hour.

These international matches are a good experience for the Argentine teams that will participate of the Continental Cup against Uruguay next June in our country, with the winners getting the direct ticket for London Olympic Games, even though they will fight then against Brazil to know the winner of the South American Continental Cup.

The Argentine teams include the fourth ranked team at Colombia South American Tour stop, Etchegaray-Mehamed and the return of the historical Martín Conde (former World Champion with Mariano Baracetti) to the World Tour, this time with the young Azaad. The last presentation of Conde at a World Beach Volleyball competition were the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.
