China, Germany, Barbara on AIPS 2016 Awards shortlist
China celebrate match point over Serbia for Rio 2016 Olympic gold.
China dominated the headlines at the Rio 2016 Olympics after knocking out home favourites Brazil in the quarterfinals to go and win women's gold with a stunning performance in the final over Serbia.
Ludwig and Walkenhorst, seeded 4th, scored amazing wins at Rio 2016 over the top two seeded Brazilian sides in the competition Larissa France / Talita Antunes in the semifinals and Agatha Bednraczuk / Barbara Seixas in the final.
As a Rio native, Barbara was the darling of the crowds on the Marvelous City's iconic Copacabana beach as she and teammate Agatha claimed Brazil's first Olympic silver since Athens 2004.
The AIPS Awards winnners will be confirmed after the closing of voting for members of the Association at midnight on 28 December.
