BALANCE OF THEIR OLYMPIC PARTICIPATION FOR THE TOP ARGENTINE GALLAY-KLUG

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, August 17, 2016 - The Olympic Games Rio 2016 participation is over for Ana Gallay-Georgina Klug, the top ranked Argentine pair but they go on training to keep at the top among the best World pairs at the FIVB World Tour that did not end yet this year's international season.

Georgina Klug, a few days after their final match at the most important international worldwide sport competition expressed. "If I have to make a balance, I must start with our training to reach Rio competition. We lived many things one after the other, two quickly, it was a long process but really short because in only three years one can not reach the top level".

"Even though in these years we did not lose a single Qualy of the Grand Slam of the FIVB World Tour and slowly we became part of the Main Draw we are aware that we must improve a lot. Every year we showed we grew and obtained better results showing that we advance as team and as players" she added.

Even though the Argentine girls showed improvement along their matches at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 fighting to the last point to qualify for Quarter-Finals, they were in the hardest Pool and their demanding performance showed that they are a good team and can grow much more.

Klug added: "We have a very good balance because we never stopped growing receiving everybody's support. We kept adding competitions and therefore with the support we got we could reach the qualification at the FIVB World Tour. That was a huge goal fulfilled".

With reference to their future, the Albicelestes next commitment is the Long Beach Grand Slam where Gallay-Klug are already at the Main Draw thanks to their 2016 obtained points. It is the last competition of the year and very important to finish among the best 8 teams of the international season.

Klug finished saying "This next competition is very important for us because we want to keep improving at international level and finish among the best teams of the World. We start a new process with new goals betting for the growth of the team".
