But first things first: since the beginning of the year, Dorina and Ronja Klinger have been training in Tenerife and very successfully completed their first tournaments in Miami (US) and La Paz (MEX). Soon they will, almost traditionally, pitch their tents in Rio, Brazil - at the before mentioned Copacabana - to face the challenges in Latin America. "On one hand, the weather is ideal, on the other hand, you soak up the spirit of beach volleyball here with every breath you take," the two will be refueling their sporting energies there, rumor has it, with a local coach.
Before they come back to Europe, a few warm-up tournaments are still scheduled. “The world association has reshuffled the cards to add more diversity into the volleyball circus. First it's South America, then Europe and finally Asia. Additionally, tournaments in Canada and South Africa "reappeared" on the tour calendar again. Meanwhile, international points are being collected in order to get closer to the Olympic goal, because "that's THE challenge for 2024." This year, however, at the beginning of August there are European Championships at Vienna on the Danube Island, near the "Copa Cagrana" - named after the neighboring district of Kagran - a real highlight for both of them. Also for us, LTE, as, according to Heinrich Juritsch, Managing Director of LTE AT:" We want to accompany the sporting event with a proper party and celebrating their successes together".
"We need sponsorship to enable us to bring our services to the international playground, but especially with LTE, we have a very relaxed, communicative and friendly atmosphere," Ronja and Dorina say happily.
By the way, we recently started shooting a film that aims to make our collegiality and friendship even more visible.
And above all our common credo: speed, precision, teamwork.
