Bio Bits

Loiola has recorded 55 victories in his career, which is the third most among active players. He won titles for eight straight years, from 1995 through 2002. Loiola has experienced success both on the AVP Tour as well as internationally, winning 35 domestic events plus 20 on the FIVB Tour. Among his wins are the 1997 King of the Beach, 1999 World Championships, 2001 Goodwill Games and twice winning the Manhattan Beach Open (1995 and 2000). He was a 2000 Olympian, finishing ninth with Emanuel Rego.

His four AVP Offensive Player of the Year awards are unsurpassed. Loiola was the first player to be selected AVP Rookie of the Year and then MVP. His first title, an indoor tournament in 1995, marked the first time an AVP event was won by foreign-born players, as he claimed the title with Eduardo Bacil. In 2001 the FIVB chose Loiola and Rego as one of the two Best Beach Volleyball Teams of the '90s.
