One last tournament remains in the 2018 FIVB World Tour season - and it's all coming to a close in Hamburg, Germany at World Tour Finals. The Top 12 Men's and Women's teams compete for this year's largest prize: $150,000 and the crown of World Tour Champs.
To no one's surprise - both teams of Sarah Pavan & Melissa Humana-Paredes (World No. 4) and Heather Bansley & Brandie Wilkerson (World No. 5) have qualified for the finals.
Despite having attended all three editions of The Finals - no Canadian team has ever reached the podium, having finished fourth in all three years. Sarah & Heather finished just off the podium in Ft. Lauderdale in 2015, Ben Saxton & Chaim Schalk got close at home in Toronto in 2016, and Mel & Sarah came home empty handed last year in Gstaad.
