Edinburgh’s Olympic beach volleyball star Shauna Mullin will make a return to top-level competition at the European Continental Cup in Portoroz, Slovenia, from June 14-15.

Mullin quit the international grand prix circuit after London 2012 but has been playing indoors in the English League.

She has now been named in the Scotland team for the Slovenia event where she will partner Scotland indoor cap Anneka Hastings.

Great Britain indoor captain Lynne Beattie will partner Troon Team Ayrshire’s Gillian Lyall at the event.

In the men’s event, Edinburgh’s Robin Miedzybrodzki, who narrowly missed out on Olympic qualification, will partner Seain Cook and former City of Edinburgh player-coach Barry McGuigan will continue his experienced pairing with Graham Riddle.

Scotland face Norway, Slovenia, Northern Ireland and Belgium in their first official involvement in senior European beach competition.
