Baku beach volleyball winners hope for more medals

Swiss beach volleyball duo Nicole Eiholzer and Nina Betschart set their sights on further gold medals after taking victory in the women's final in Baku.

Switzerland's gold-medal-winning beach volleyball duo Nicole Eiholzer and Nina Betschart have said that they hope more medals are to come.

The 19-year-olds won in three sets against Austria's Lena Maria Plesiutschnig and Katharina Schutzenhofer at the Beach Arena in Baku.

"I think we stayed really calm and we tried to put a lot of pressure on them to serve well and push them into some difficult situations," Eiholzer told reporters.

"We still have to practice a lot and train every day to become better. So we won't change a lot of things. I hope it is not the last medal."

The gold was Switzerland's seventh of the Games, and they currently sit fifth in the overall medal table.
