Chantal and Julia on an upward curve
2015/16 World Tour ranking position: 3
2015/16 World Tour ranking points: 5,440
2016 medals: 3 (One gold, one silver, one bronze)
Making a late surge up the ranking table with a number of stunning performances, Julia Sude and Chantal Laboureur saw off the challenge of fellow German teams Borger/Büthe and Holtwick/Semmler to earn a spot in Toronto.
The pair amassed 1,320 points in their last five tournaments on the FIVB World Tour, which included a first-ever gold medal together at the Poreč Major.
Fun fact! The team were the first qualifiers in the history of the Swatch Major Series to win a gold medal following their success at the Poreč Major.
