From Russia with love
Despite a number of international teams unable to make it to Russia, the Moscow Grand Slam 2020 event went ahead – and that meant teams from Russia competed against one another in search of victory.
In the men’s event just one ebt team were able to secure points – three-time Beach Champions Cup winners and beach powerhouses SC-Ekaterinodar. However, Roman Kalashnikov and his team had to settle for second place, losing to Technolog-Spartak in the final. In the women’s event CSKA-2 took first place, with Universiet Izhevsk finishing as runners-up.
