Wow. What a gutsy move by the Russian coach to move 7'2 Muskersky out of his natural position to the right wing.. He just took control of the game from there.

Jaqueline Carvalho was chosen as the MVP of the women's tournament. To celebrate that, here's her dancing to Dance Central(?) with Destinee Hooker:

I feel so bad for Murilo of Brazil.. One of my favorite players too..

But man.. The Brazillian coach and his son are so ****ing annoying to look at.

Funny.

Me and my friends were just commenting the other day, and I said I thought these two were the two hottest volleyball players.

YUMMY.

In case people are wondering, they were team mates in Brazil last season. Hooker will be taking her talents to the Russian league next season. Not sure if that kid is Carvalho's kid either, wikipedia only mentioned that she miscarried in 2011.

still upset over both the men and women teams in volleyball for the US...

after that first set I thought the women would just crush Brazil...what an epic collapse...

the men looked awesome in the round robin, just never seemed to gain traction after that...

oh well, on to 2016

http://rt.com/sport/ovchinnikov-russ...l-suicide-832/

The head coach of Russia’s national women’s volleyball team was found hanged in his hotel room in Croatia, local media reported. The team’s lackluster performance at the London Olympics may be behind the alleged suicide.

Sergey Ovchinnikov, 43, was at a training camp in Croatia with his team Dynamo Moscow when the tragedy occurred. According to Croatia’s 24sata news website, Ovchinnikov missed breakfast; when the club’s employees went to his room, they discovered him hanging.

Former Russian coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin speculated the suicide may have been a reaction to the poor showing of the Russian women’s volleyball team at the 2012 London Olympics.

"This is so stupid,” Kuzyutkin told the RSN radio station. “He was my friend, my colleague. No one said a bad word about him. Yes, there was a blunder at the Olympics, well, to hell with it. I don’t know why he couldn’t cope with it.”
