The event is the second of three five-star events in 2018’s Beach Major Series, the first since February’s Fort Lauderdale event.

Gibb and Crabb were narrowly defeated in the bronze-medal match by Daniele Lupo and Paolo Nicolai of Italy in a dramatic three-set match (17-21, 21-16, 20-18). The fourth-place finish is Gibb and Crabb’s highest finish of the year, adding to their FIVB ninths in Fort Lauderdale, Doha, and Xiamen.

Youthful Anders Mol and Christian Sorum of Norway, ages 21 and 22, respectively, defeated Adrian Gavira and Pablo Herrera of Spain in the gold-medal match (21-18, 21-12).
