Duda nets Best Female Beach Volleyball Offensive Player
Duda celebrates a point at the World Championships in Hamburg in 2019
of 2018/2019 on Monday, and the Most Outstanding Male Player earlier today, we now turn to the Best Female Offensive Player of 2018/2019.
She may be only 21, but Eduarda ‘Duda’ Lisboa has already packed five years worth of FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour competition into her career.
The Brazilian continued to collect the medals in 2018-19, alongside Rio de Janeiro 2016 silver medallist Agatha Bednarczuk. While she lines up as the defensive player, covering the back of the court, her 180cm height and offensive spirit mean that she is quick to go on the attack at the net when the occasion calls for it.
Tokyo 2020 would be Duda’s first Olympic Games, so don’t be surprised to see her add yet another laurel to an already glittering career.
Keep an eye on FIVB.com, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we unveil this year's award winners.
