More action from Shanghai, China today as the 2011 Swatch FIVB World Tour in beach volleyball continues.  After the qualification round yesterday for the men, one Canadian team has emerged from the pack and has made it into the main draw.  Christian Redmann and Ben Saxton have a first round match up against a strong team from the USA.  Matt Fuerbringer and Nick Lucena are coming off of a 5th place finish in FIVB Brazil two weeks ago and are looking for another finish.  The Canadians are the first team of either gender from Canada to make a main draw in 2011.

On the women's side of the tournament, the seeding is such that two of three Canadian women's teams will meet each other in the first round of qualification.  This mini country showdown is kind of unfortunate but that's just how the seeds work.  Rodrigue and MacTavish will face Valjas and Whitaker in the first round while the third and final Canadian team of Bansley-Maloney have a bye the first round.
