BeachTravels has signed a sponsor deal with the Swedish national team Hannes Brinkborg and Stefan Gunnarsson.
– They made a strong year on the world tour last season and this season, with key events in the Olympic qualification, looks very exciting. Naturally BeachTravels wants to support our greatest role models in Swedish beachvolleyball, says Rasmus Jonsson.
The Swedish national team is currently training in New Zealand with other World Tour players, including the former world champions and reigning European champions Brink/Reckermann.
– We practice really hard and we spend many hours in the sand. The preparation for the season has gone very well, says Steve.
– When we are in Sweden, we practice at The Beach in Stockholm and for a long time we have been trained by the two of the founders of BeachTravels, Mattias Magnusson and Rasmus Jonsson. We like what they do and their knowledge, so this feels just right, says Hannes.
Unfortunately, Brinkborg/Gunnarsson cannot join Beach Travel’s training camp in Praia da Rocha, due to the start of the World Tour in Brazil and Poland. But BeachTravels will steal their coach, the legend Anders Kristiansson.
– I try to help the boys to get to a summer camp on my home island of Gotland. Summer and beach volleyball at Tofta is a wonderful combination! Since I live and grew up on Gotland, I have some useful contacts, says Hannes.
Check out the film from New Zealand where Hannes and Steve talk about life as pro beach volleyballers and about their future plans.
Listen to the pros Brinkborg/Gunnarsson and do as they do!
