TORONTO, CANADA The City of Toronto has been totally electrified this week by the presence of the Worlds top beach volleyball athletes, who have put on an incredible show here at Ashbridges Bay. Over 4,000 people rocked, sang and ap plauded as the best beach volleyball ever seen in Canada was provided by these o utstanding athletes.

Brazil stole the show on the Womens side with the two top seeds, Adriana Beh ar-Shelda and Sandra Pires-Adriana Samuel meeting in the final match. After a b arn-burning seventy minutes of play, the Pires-Samuel duo squeaked by their coun trywomen by a score of 17-16. The bronze medal match was an all USA affair as L isa Arce and Holly McPeak faced off in centre-court against Barbra Fontana and L inda Hanley, with the Arce-McPeak pair winning 15-4.

Four different countries were represented in the Mens final four: Emanuel-L oiola (BRA) vs Bosma-Diez (ESP) and Martinez-Conde (ARG) vs Kvalheim-Maaseide (N OR), with the the Spanish Conquistadores (Bosma-Diez) taking the bronze medal aw ay from the Norwegians in a close 15-13 match. The gold medal match was a South -American match-up with top seeds Emanuel-Loiola taking on their neighbours to t he South, Martinez-Conde. The Argentinians came out on top in a match that feat ured superb digging as well as awesome net play, with the Brazilians being on th e losing side by 15-10.

Athletes were very happy with the Canadian welcome that they received, with m any of them thanking Promoter John May personally for the excellent job in putti ng on this, the first FIVB international beach event held in Canada. The many r epresentatives of the corporate partners of the event, Labatt, Ford and Nokia we re in attendance, with one of the latter mentioning, "I had no idea this wa s so amazing". In fact, the packed corporate boxes rocked as much as those in the stadium seats; many of them will be back for this event, which is due ba ck at Ashbridges Bay same time next year.

This beach will never be the same . . . it has seen the best . . . and that i s the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour.

TORONTO, CANADA - 20th June 1998 - PRESS RELEASE No. 5

TORONTO, CANADA What an amazing day it has been on this, the fourth day of the Labatt Blue Toronto Open, third stop on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour , where 35 countries have come together to compete on the beaches of Ashbridges Bay.

Brazil is the standout of the tournament, with 3 teams advancing (2 Women, 1 Men) of the eight teams qualified for the tournament, out of a total of 138 team s who have taken part in this prestigious event.

Canadian Womens top seeds, Guylaine Dumont and Kathy Tough have finished 9th , tying the best ever Canadian Womens results in FIVB play, with a w in over their American "mentors" Angela Rock and Kerrie Poppinga. Their eliminat ion from further play came through the hands of fourth seeds, Americans Arce-McP eak. On the Mens side, Canadas Olympic medallists Child-Heese equaled the Wome n with a ninth place finish, winning their first two matches and then losing to Brazilians Loiola and Emanuel, then later to the Spanish duo of Bosma and Diez b y a heart-breaking13-15.

The amazing pair of Brian Gatzke and Dan Lewis took the long route to their 7 th place finish, first by having to play four matches in the Qualifie r (4-0) then six matches in the Main Draw, to eventually lose versus the Spaniar d pair of Bosma-Diez. This is a great result for a pair who have just played the ir first tournament together, and the best result here for Canada. It is interes ting to note that Bosma-Diez have effectively been the nemesis for the Canadian Men, eliminating Leinemann-Holden, Child-Heese and Gatzke-Lewis in that order. T hese tour veterans also rebounded from a first round loss vs legendary Sinjin Sm ith and his partner Ricci Luyties to win an impressive six consecutive matches a nd earn their spot in the semi-finals.

The USA and Brazilian Women continue to show their dominance on the world cir cuit by qualifying two teams each for the semi-finals. Americans Fontana-Hanley thrilled the capacity crowd, which included IOC Member Carol Anne Letheren in at tendance, at Ashbridges Bay with their win over Australias surprising duo of G ooley-Sanderson. The latter are considered the cinderella team of the tournament rising from the qualifyer to finish 5th overall.

TORONTO, CANADA - 19th June 1998 - PRESS RELEASE No. 4

TORONTO, CANADA Following the first day of competition in the main draw of the Labatt Blue Toronto Open, where 32 Mens and 32 Womens teams played a tota l of 80 matches to earn the honours in this, the third edition of the FIVBs Wor ld Tour, sixteen teams have earned the right to continue. The first two tournam ents of the World Tour were played in Argentina in January and Brazil in Februar y, and Canada hosts the worlds best beach volleyball athletes on the road to a world title.

Tough day for the Canadians, who started with 9 teams still in contention, bu t ended the day with four teams still in the tournament. On the Womens side, t he only team to advance is the duo of Guylaine Dumont and Kathy Tough, who were able to resist Portugals Maria Josee and Christine Pereira, winning 15-8 in 48 minutes. After a heart-breaking loss against the strong American team of Nancy Reno and Elaine Youngs, where they were leading 7-1 to eventually lose 15-11, t hey were able to overcome the tough defense of Japans Ishizaka-Rii Seike and wi n by a score of 15-11.

On the Mens side, the Canadians were very successful, with three of the five teams participating in the main draw advancing to round of sixteen.

Canadas second highest ranked team of Conrad Le ineman and Jody Holden were also able to stay in the medal race by defeating Jod ard-Penigaud of France 15-13, and 15-7 versus Maia-Brenha of Portugal. Their onl y loss was a 15-11 heartbreaker to Australias Zahner-Prosser.

The major surprise of the tournament so far is the elimination of the recent World Champions, Brazilians Para and Guihlerme who lost first to the Germans (15 -11) and the Spaniards (15-6), while their compatriots Emanuel-Loiola and Paulo Emilio-Paulao continue to dominate. The first of these two duos will meet Canad as favourites, Child and Heese tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 9:00am.

TORONTO, CANADA - 17th June 1998 - PRESS RELEASE No. 2

TORONTO, CANADA - The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour rolled into Toronto big time today, with the Labatt Blue Toronto Open staging its first day of competition. Ashbridge's Bay has literally been taken over by an international beach village, featuring a 5,000 seat stadium, secondary stadium court, six other competition courts, and a variety of other attractions. It is a sight not to be missed a relative "Rio de Janeiro North".

At the beginning of the day today, 53 Men's Teams and 37 Women's Teams were vying for the precious 8 spots available in the main draw, which begins Friday June 19th. Following a full day of spectacular beach volleyball action, a total of 16 Men's and Women's Teams remain in contention.

The eight Canadian Men's Teams in the Qualifier started the day with great hopes and anticipation, but only one team remains alive; former Canadian Team stand-out Brian Gatzke and his partner Dan Lewis play New Zealand's Seuseu and Eade at 9:00 tomorrow. On the Women's side, three Canadian teams are still in the hunt for a maximum of two Canadian spots to join the Main Draw. Thursday will therefore be a big day for Lesage/Harkness, who will play France's Rigaux/Prawman, Broen-Ouellette/Lussier against the powerhouse Americans Kirby/Masakayan and finally Malowney/Rasmussen against Sweden's Enberg/Granstrom, the surprising upset winners over Brazil's Bento/Richa.

The USA Women also have three teams still in contention, but have only one potential spot in the Main Draw to join their three already qualified counterparts. The Russians are the big news on the Men's side as they advance three teams to the final 16 on Thursday, hoping to qualify all three for the Main Draw. Three Brazilian Teams also advance, but have only one spot available in the Main Draw, due to three of their countrymen having pre-qualified.

Action in the Labatt Blue Toronto Open resumes Thursday morning at 9:00am, and the forecast calls for sun with cloudy periods and a high of 27 C degrees.

TORONTO, CANADA - 16th June 1998 The city the United Nations calls the most "ethnically diverse" in the world welcomes 35 countries taking part in the Labatt Blue Toronto Open, the first FIVB World Tour event to come to Canada. Providing an unprecedented $340,000 US in prize money, equally divided between Men and Women, the Labatt Blue Toronto Open is breaking new ground in Canadian beach volleyball.

Following the draw held at the Technical Meeting today, a total of 53 Men's Teams and 37 Women's Teams have been seeded for the Qualification Tournament to begin tomorrow morning. Ze Marco and Ricardo are surprise participants in the Qualification Tournament, being seeded first, after having won the FIVB World Tour event held in Brazil last February, but three other Brazilian teams have more FIVB points. Tande and Giovane, also from Brazil, are seeded 16th, but as gold medallists from the Olympic Volleyball Tournament in Barcelona, they could provide some surprise upsets in the Qualifier.

On the Women's side, the top-ranked WPVA team of Masakayan/Kirby and current Goodwill Games Champions are seeded first, and strong contenders to go on to the Main Draw. The big question in the Women's Qualifier is which of the strong three teams entered from the USA will advance to the Main Draw.

Ireland takes part in the FIVB World Tour event for the first time ever, with its team of Flynn/Brennan making sport history in that country.

Canada has a strong presence in this tournament, and will provide the more than 5,000 fans at Ashbridge's Bay with much excitement and spectacular play. Atlanta Olympic bronze medallists Child/Heese are in the Main Draw, but will definitely cheer on their Canadian Team counterparts taking part in the Qualifier, 8 Men's and 8 Women's Teams in all. Former Canadian National Team members Brian Gatzke and John Barrett are excited about their move to beach volleyball. Another team to watch from the home country is Ljubicic/Slean, seeded highest of the Canadians in the Men's Qualifier. Barry/Goodfellow take the highest Canadian seed on the Women's side (4), while former Beach Olympian Barb Broen-Ouellette tackles this new FIVB season with a new partner, Christine Lussier, and is seeded 8th.

The weather expected at Ashbridge's Bay for the start of the tournament on June 17th is hot, humid sunshine, 26 C, with perhaps some showers late in the afternoon.
