The Canadians will be playing in their second SWATCH FIVB World Tour Finals after qualifying for Hamburg via their international rankings. Humana-Paredes and Pavan lost in a country quota playoff at the 2016 event in Toronto. The Canadians are playing their first full season on the FIVB World Tour and placed fourth at the world championships earlier this month in Vienna. The new partnership has produced a first, two seconds, a third, two fourths and ninth in their seven FIVB World Tour events in 2017. Despite being the younger of the two, Humana-Paredes started competing in FIVB events in 2009 and captured a silver medal at the 2011 under-21 world championships with Victoria Altomare. Humana-Paredes has played in 37 FIVB World tour events with all her podium placements being with Pavan. Pavan began competing on the FIVB World Tour in 2013 and placed fifth at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with Heather Bansley. Pavan has competed in 46 FIVB events with 10 podium placements and 13 “final four” finishes.
