London 2010: San Roque beach volley player heads for quarter finals

Adrián Gavira in action
LONDON Adrián Gavira, a member of a well known San Roque family, is one half of Spain's Men's Beach Volley Ball doubles team. He and Pablo Herrera, from Castellón, beat their Czech opponents Kubala and Benes by two sets to love (25-23 y 21-16), in 40 minutes. It was Gavira who made the decisive moves in the match, according to the experts, in a match that was more even than shown by the score. But the Spaniards were playing at a disadvantage, after Herrera hurt his knee. Their next hurdle is against the USA's Rogers/Dalhausser, who beat Japan in their opening match.
