    German pair Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst were crowned European champions after defeating Russian duo Evgenia Ukolova and Ekaterina Birlova in the final in Klagenfurt on Saturday (1st August).


    Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst got off to a fast start in the European beach volleyball championships, when they took on ninth seeds Evgenia Ukolova and Ekaterina Birlova.

    The German duo quickly established an 8-2 lead in the first set and never looked back.

    Their Russian rivals battled hard to pull themselves into contention, but the fourth seeds always had a comfortable cushion and went one set up by winning 21-18.

    The second set was a more even affair, but once again the Germans proved too strong for their opponents in the latter half of the set.
    Ludwig and Walkenhorst captured the second set 21-18 and the celebrations could get started.

    The pair took bronze medals in both 2013 and 2014 - but now stand on top of the podium.
