Beach Volleyball: British pair miss out on the medals
Monday 15 August 2011
Great Britain's beach volleyball duo Denise Johns and Lucy Boulton missed out on a podium place at the London Prepares test event at Horse Guards Parade yesterday as they lost the bronze medal match.
The experienced Brazilian pair of Vivian Danielle da Conceicao Cunha and Taiana Lima recorded a 21-19 21-18 win over the British team in front of a capacity crowd at the Olympic test.
Earlier in the day Johns and Boulton missed out on a place in the final after losing in three sets to Jennifer Kessy and April Ross of the United States but Boulton was happy with the week.
She said: "We feel disappointed with the loss today, but looking across the whole week there's been loads of positives.
"We knew Horse Guards Parade was going to be a special venue. We now know that next year, with 15,000 fans inside, it's going to be amazing."
