Moscow, Russia, September 1, 2013. The bad weather conditions and the heavy rain that had poured down all night long did oblige the organizers of the EEVZA Beach Volleyball Tour Finals in Moscow to adjust their schedule and program for the final day. The centre court was flooded and therefore the semifinal and final matches were played on the side courts set up at Vodniy stadium with many fans who got together to follow the last stage of the tournament. It was worth it for the Russian pairs swept five out of six medals at stake with Konstantin Semenov/Viacheslav Krasilnikov and Evgenia Ukolova/Ekaterina Khomyakova living up to their status of pre-favorites to win gold in the end.
