Lina-Petia

TWO SISTERS MADE HISTORY IN BEACH VOLLEYBALL

HERE’S THEIR JOURNEY

Lina and Petia grew up in the small European country of Bulgaria, playing indoor volleyball from a young age. Lina, the older of the two, received a scholarship to play D-I volleyball at the University of Idaho, where she studied Biology. Helping her team win four consecutive conference championships, earned Lina a Player of the Year award and Academic All-American honors.

Petia received a scholarship to the University of San Diego, where she earned First Team All-American honors two years in a row, finding a place in the record books and the West Coast Conference Hall of Fame. She graduated with two degrees from USD: International Relations and Business Administration.

After graduating from college, the sisters decided to try playing beach volleyball. From virtual outsiders and no experience in the sport, the two claimed a spot in the Sydney 2000 and again in Athens 2004 Olympics.

Here are some of our favorite moments from playing professional beach volleyball around the world.
