"It wasn't our best match of the tournament, but somehow we kept finding ways to steal some points here and there. The first set was definitely a battle, as I think we were down 15-11, but we kept grinding," said Pavan.  "We're just so happy…. We finally won Vienna.

"This is the third gold medal on the World Tour for the Canadians this season - they won the World Championships in Hamburg, the Edmonton 3-star in Alberta and now the Vienna Major, which is a 5-star event.

"It was our goal to win this one, and cap off this six-week stretch on a high note," said Pavan.

"It's been wild," Humana-Paredes said of their schedule over the past month and a half, "but with three gold medals and two top-ten results, we cannot complain."
