The Santa Fe pair in Umag 2011 representing Argentina

Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 20, 2012 - After two consecutive successful experiences of Argentina at the 2011 and 2012 SWATCH Youth Beach Volleyball World Championship, now the country will double its bet with its first ever historical experience at the SWATCH Junior World Beach Volleyball competition that will take place end of August in Canada. The Argentine delegation comes from Santa Fe and includes Lisandro Rouzic and Mateo Iwanowsky, a pair that promises future great stars with already international tournaments experience.

Rouzic-Iwanowski in the year 2011 were the Argentine team to put for the first time the country in such important international events, obtaining the ninth place at the SWATCH Youth World Championship in Umag, Croatia. This result was also obtained by the Mar del Plata Samuel De Elorza and Facundo Funes in Larnaca, Cyprus during this year's competition.

With these background international experience, the Santa Fe pair will travel to Halifax, Canada, August 26th to play against the best teams of the World at a grass-root category of beach volleyball. The World Championship, organized by the FIVB, will take place August 29th - September 2nd.

As coach will travel with the players Santiago Etchegaray, one of the best beach volleyball players of Argentina and Bronze Medal winner at the Pan-American Games held in Guadalajara 2011. He already coached Funes-De Elorza in the successful experience in Cyprus.

No doubt, this entrepreneurship of the Argentine Volleyball Federation on their goal to develop all together beach volleyball will help to grow and increase Argentine participation at the best beach volleyball World level.
