Beware the Matadors of Mazatlán!
2015/16 FIVB World Tour ranking position: 6
2015/16 FIVB World Tour ranking points: 4,910
2016 medals: 3 (One silver, two bronze)
Known as the Matadors of Mazatlán, Lombardo Ontiveros and Juan Virgen are enjoying their most successful season of their three-year partnership.
The Mexicans have pocketed three medals so far in 2016, including a silver medal in Antalya, and topped a fine campaign by booking their place at the Olympics thanks to a dramatic performance at the smart Major Hamburg. In Rio they reached the knockout phase but on their day they are a match for anybody on the sand.
Fun fact! The duo have been placed in the top 10 at 14 of the 16 events they have taken part in on the FIVB World Tour in 2016.
