Jurmala, Latvia, May 24, 2015. Italy’s tandems continue to leave their mark on this year’s Beach Volleyball season. Last Sunday Alex Ranghieri/Marco Caminati had topped the charts of the FIVB World Tour Open in Lucerne and seven days later twins Matteo and Paolo Ingrosso have come out on top at the end of the Jurmala Masters, the first stop of the 2015 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship. As they did so, they upset thousands of Latvian fans in attendance, cruising to a rather unexpected semi-final win over home heroes Aleksandrs Samoilovs and Janis Smedins.
