Polish pair Piotr Kantor and Bartosz Losiak have excelled on the FIVB World Tour this season with a string of fine performances on the sand.

Their highlight was undoubtedly their victory at the Rio Grand Slam on the Copacabana which saw them overcome Brazilian home favorites Pedro Solberg/Evandro.

Fun fact! The pair are only 24 years old and are three-time youth/junior world champions.
