Reigning Olympic champions Anders Mol and Christian Sorum of Norway will also be in pursuit of a medal.
On the women's side of the draw, this season's most successful team Katja Stam and Raisa Schoon of the Netherlands, are the top-ranked pairing. They'll need to pull out all the stop to beat defending world champions Sarah Pavan and Melissa Humana-Paredes of Canada.

Watch the 2022 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2022 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
