Iran 2nd at AVC Beach Tour 23rd Samila Open

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Australia defeated Iran to complete clean sweep of the men’s title at the action-packed AVC Beach Tour 23rd Samila Open at the wonderful white sandy Samila Beach on Tuesday.

Paul Burnett/Jack Pearse dashed Iranian hopes of winning two AVC Beach Tour events on the trot.

The fifth seeds Burnett/ Pearse, who won their first BPT Futures event together last November in Geelong, stunned Iran’s 13th seeds Abbas Pourasgari/Alireza Aghajani, fresh from winning the last week’s AVC Beach Tour Nuvali Open in Philippines, in the final clash for the eventual men’s title.

The Australian team beat Iranians Pourasgari/Aghajani 2-0 (21-17, 21-18) for the men’s title.

The competition was held in Songkhla, Thailand.
