It was this weekend that the beach volleyball season started for 21-year-olds David Åhman and Jonatan Hellvig.

With the strong result, the Swedish duo now have eight consecutive podium places.

- As a whole, we are doing a really good tournament.

Now we have to work very hard on developing certain parts for the next competition in Mexico, says national team captain Rasmus Jonsson in a press release.

But that's not enough.

Now Åhman and Hellvig are climbing the world rankings.

The duo advances from tenth to eighth place after this weekend's results.

The duo is in the hunt for an Olympic ticket in France in 2024. A total of 24 teams will get the chance to participate in the championships.
