RIO DE JANEIRO - Last weekend was momentous for Brazilian beach volleyball double Juliana and Larissa. The duo claimed gold at the Barcelona Open and won the World Tour title, scoring points which left the other Brazilian duo Talita and Maria Elisa trailing behind.
The result put them 400 points ahead in the table (7,360 against 6,960), and with just two events left in the World Tour, they can no longer be outranked in the championship race.
The gold medal match took place between Juliana/Larissa and Talita/Maria Elisa on Sunday, September 13 . . .
