Team: Fijalek/Prudel

Nation: Poland

2015/16 FIVB World Tour ranking position: 8

2015/16 FIVB World Tour ranking points: 4,440

2016 medals: 1 (One bronze)

Another uber-consistent team on the FIVB World Tour, Grzegorz Fijalek and Mariusz Prudel of Poland have proven themselves to be worthy participants at this year’s competition.

While they may only have one bronze medal to show for their efforts this year – don’t be fooled! The experienced Poles have stacked up a whole host of impressive performances on the FIVB World Tour this season, including third place on the podium at Antalya in May.

The duo went to Rio but lost in the lucky loser round to Canadians Saxton/Schalk - the same stage that countrymen Kantor/Losiak also bowed out.

Fun fact! The duo have been playing together as a team for nine seasons now – that’s longer than any other pair at the competition. 

Watch the Poles in this superb rally against Germany's Markus Böckermann and Lars Flüggen at the smart Major Hamburg.
