Mexicans triumph in Mazatlan
Mexicans Bibi Candelas and Martha Revuelta won the women’s gold medal, respectively, at the Mazatlan Beach Volleyball Tournament, the sixth stage of the 2013 NORCECA Circuit on Sunday.
Revuelta and Candelas of Mexico-A defeated Melissa Humana and Taylor Pishcke of Canada-A, 2-0 (23-21, 21-18).
It was the 10th career victory for Candelas, breaking a tie with the now retired Yarleen Santiago of Puerto Rico at the top of the all-time list. Revuelta increased her own record of more career medals now with 25.
“I always dreamed about winning a gold medal at home and we were able to play high quality beach volleyball during the weekend,” Virgen said after the award ceremony. “I want to dedicate this victory to my family who made the trip to be here in Mazatlan.”
“We have five more tournaments this year, so a new record is within our reach,” Virgen added. “We go to Puerto Rico on Wednesday looking forward to add another victory.”
“It is a great feeling to win at home in front of our fans,” Candelas said. “Canada is a young team but of high quality level. Next week we go to Puerto Rico and our goal is to win over there also.”
“Is a personal victory since it is our first title together,” Revuelta said. “Our goal is to win the gold medal at the Central American Games next year in Veracruz but we need to continue working hard.”
In the women’s semifinals, the team of Revuelta-Candelas defeated Heather Hughes and Lane Carico of United States-A 2-0 (21-15, 21-19) while Humana-Pishcke scored a 2-1 (21-16, 17-21, 15-9) victory over Traci Weamer and Allison Fleming of United States-B.
Hughes and Carico won 2-0 (24-22, 21-19) over Weamer-Fleming in the match for the bronze medal.
