Olympic stars Taliqua Clancy and Mariafe Artacho Del Solar have shown why they are considered strong contenders for a medal in Tokyo, claiming an emphatic win at the Australian Beach Volleyball Tour final.

The pair remain undefeated since their return in the second leg of the four-stage tour, extending their streak to take the gold medal ahead of fellow Olympians Nikki Laird and Becchara Palmer 2-0 (21-13, 21-15) on Coolangatta Beach on Sunday.

It was the last major domestic tournament ahead of the Tokyo Olympics later this year.

Commonwealth Games champions Chris McHugh and Damien Schumann made a clean sweep of the four stages in the men's competition.

The Adelaide-based duo won Sunday's final over second seeds Max Guehrer and Zachery Schubert, 2-0 (21-15, 21-16).
