Lausanne, Switzerland, May 25, 2020 - Canadian world champion Melissa Humana-Paredes was live on Facebook to answer your questions and discuss life as a professional beach volleyball athlete.
It has been a remarkable three years since Melissa Humana-Paredes and Sarah Pavan teamed up. By the end of the 2018-19 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour the pair were top of the beach volleyball world.
When the Hamburg 2019 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships began the Canadians had won silver at the Las Vegas and Itapema 4-Star events earlier in the season.
They found their rhythm early in Hamburg and quickly built their momentum all the way to the gold medal match that they won with a 2-0 (23-21, 23-21) victory over the USA’s April Ross and Alix Klineman.
From there they added two more sets of gold. The first was in front of their home crowd at the Edmonton 3-Star, and the second at the A1 Major Vienna 5-Star.
