The World Tour event in Olsztyn has concluded recently, with Brazilian and German teams securing titles.
Brazil’s Larissa Franca and Talita Antunes captured their fourth FIVB title of the season and second straight, rallying from down a set for the gold medal.
Walsh-Jennings says that her status for the World Championships depends on how she feels over the next week.
Larissa/Talita are aiming for their fourth FIVB title, following gold medals at last week’s Long Beach President’s Cup, Moscow Three Star, and Fort Lauderdale Five Star.
Six countries will be represented the matches, including two teams each from Brazil and the United States.
The first day in Olsztyn’s main draw has concluded for the four-star event. This is the first four-star event since Rio back from May 16-21.
German’s Chantal Laboureur and Julia Sude took the gold medal at the Gstaad Major over Talita Antunes and Larissa Franca of Brazil.
In the 18 year history of the Gstaad event, Anouk Verge-Depre and Joana Heidrich become only the second Swiss pair to make it to the semifinals.
Day two at the Gstaad Major has ended with the women’s teams concluding pool play while the men finished with their day two matches.
