Some call them the 'most beautiful' beach volleyball players
'Beauty' is a matter of opinion. Fact is that the beach volleyball duo Katrin Holtwick and Ilka Semmler are top-ranking athletes (German Masters 2009 and 2012, qualified for the Olympic Games 2012 in London where they reached place 9). Currently, the German duo is listed on place 6 of the world ranking.
On 15 April 2013, women's wear label Soccx (belongs to Clinton Group) presented the new 'Beachgames' SS2013 collection with the two role models from sports. Thomas Finkbeiner, CEO of Clinton Group, says about the decision to work with the beach volleyball players Holtwick and Semmler that qualities like their self-confidence combined with coolness and friendliness represent the label's message best.

The advertising campaign will start in May 2013.
