FIVB: Sanya China 2012 (Women)

Photo: FIVB

This week on the 2012 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, the women and men are in different countries.  As we posted earlier, the men are in Myslowice, Poland.  The women this week are in Sanya, China before meeting up with the men again the following week in Shanghai.  The Canadian women playing this week on tour are the exact same as last week.  This means that like in Brazil, no one will have to go through the country quota.  Also like last week, the team of Lessard-Martin will have to play a fellow Canadian team in their first match.  This is getting kind of ridiculous.  These teams travel half way around the world, don't have to play each other in the country quota only to draw each other again in the qualifier.  Last week Annie and Marie had to play Kacie and Julie while this week they play Jamie and Kristina.  Also like last week Elizabeth Maloney and Heather Bansley get enough entry points to receive a direct entry into the main draw and won't play until later in the week.
