Anders Mol og Christian Sørum ble for 3. år på rad kåret til “Årets lag” av det europeiske volleyballforbundet (CEV). Kåre Mol ble også kåret til “Årets trener” for 3. gang.
“The award for the ‘Men’s Beach Volleyball Team of the Year’ could only go the way of Anders Mol and Christian Sørum – aka the Beach Volley Vikings. The still young Norwegians triumphed at the FIVB World Championships in Rome as well as at the Beach Volley Nations Cup – and after settling for third place at EuroBeachVolley, they resumed their winning streak by crowning themselves ‘Kings of the Court’ in Utrecht earlier this month. It is therefore very fitting that the distinction for the ‘Beach Volleyball Coach of the Year’ went again – for the third straight time – to their mentor (and Anders’s father) Kåre Mol.”
