Sport: That means they are one game away from the main tournament in Tepic. They meet the Cubans Noslen Diaz and Jorge Luis Alayo on the night of Thursday Norwegian time.

Mol and Berntsen beat Pristauz/Seidl 2-1 (20-22, 21-18, 15-10) in an even match.

Norway’s star duo Anders Mol and Christian Sørum miss both this and several other tournaments after Mol broke his leg during training at the end of March. He has undergone an operation and has had a splint inserted into his calf.

Mol and Sørum are reigning Olympic champions and have the Paris Games as this year’s main goal.

The group stage in Tepice begins on Thursday. It is the second of nine in the world tour’s elite 16 tournaments this year. Mol and Sørum finished third in the first in Qatar just over a month ago.
