Sudbury native Sven Trodel has been named as part of the four-person beach volleyball team that will compete at the FISU 2014 World University Championships in Portugal later this summer.

A graduate of Lockerby Composite currently attending York University, Trodel will team with partner Liam Kopp of McMaster, with the University of Alberta tandem of Krista Zubick and Jaki Ellis donning the Canadian colours in the women's competition.

Trodel and Kopp defeated Greg Simone and Gabriel Burlacu from Windsor University 17-21, 23-21, 15-13 to earn the berth at the international competition. "I think we really stepped up our game and left it all on the court during this past tryout tournament,” said Kopp in a media release posted on the Volleyball Canada website.

“I’ve been training hard, so it’s nice to have something to show for it,” said Trodel.

The FISU selection tournament was held at Volleyball Canada’s national beach training centre in Toronto.

The FISU Games are set to take place in Porto (Portugal) from July 23-27. Trodel was a regular member of the Vikings volleyball teams during his time at Lockerby Composite.
