Olympic silver medalists Alison Cerutti and Emanuel Rego will try to repeat their podium performance from last year. Back then the Brazilians came third after losing against Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser in the semi-final. The American FIVB Heroes then proceeded to score the gold.
About the importance of the tournament, Alison thinks: “We are very motivated and focused to claim this title. In these three years together, we won many important titles, but this one will also have a big importance for our team and we really want to win.“ But he knows the rivalry is tough as always: “We know it won’t be easy, it never was, but we work a lot for this.“
After the Olympics didn’t quite go their way, Todd and Phil would love to bounce back with a medal in Stare Jabłonki. After scoring three medals earlier this summer, the Beijing champions want to end the 2012 season just as it began – with more podium finishes.
