Baku, April 28, AZERTAC
Danish Beach Volleyball duo Line Trans Hansen and Helle Søndergard have been given a spot at Baku 2015.
Denmark originally was not given a quota spot for a women's Beach Volleyball team at the Baku 2015 European Games. But Trans Hansen and Søndergard will now join the men's duo of Peter Kildegaard Andersen and Kristoffer Abell in the Azerbaijan capital.
"I am thrilled that Denmark will be represented at the European Games in Baku by another ambitious Beach Volleyball team," said Mr. Lars Mayland, Beach Volleyball Elite Director at the Danish Volleyball Federation.
"Line and Helle have delivered some solid performances on the Danish Beach Volleyball Tour, the NEVZA tournaments and also in the Continental Cup. I am looking forward to seeing them play in a huge championship such as the European Games."
Trans Hansen and Søndergard helped Denmark's women's team reach the third round of the 2014-2016 CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup. They will join their teammates on 9-10 May for the third round of the Continental Cup in Montpellier, France.
