This past weekend I had the unbelievable opportunity to volunteer at the NORCECA beach volleyball tournament held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. While the weather and desert-like conditions weren’t the most conducive to an amazing sand volleyball experience the event was amazing. For the men’s side, Canada’s Chaim Shalk and Benjamin Saxton finished 1st.
Today Olympic favorites -Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal lost to a lessor seeded Polish team in an epic battle in London. The commentators called the match an upset which in all regards it was but if you watched the match you would know that the better team won. Sure, Jake and Rosie have a better track record and are seeded higher
Like many of you, I’m planning on kicking back on the couch tonight and watching the Olympic opening ceremonies from London. While at 7:30 P.M. Pacific Time, NBC’s cameras will undoubtedly be fixed on Lebron James, Michael Phelps and Nastia Liukin, I’ll be searching instead for Jake Gibb, Donald Suxho, April Ross, Kerri Walsh, Reid Priddy.
A few days ago was the finals to a week long event for Men’s International Volleyball. It featured the United States and Canada. But what led up to this showdown?
It’s a week before the start of the tournament and a truck has pulled into the parking lot at Long Beach State.
This past weekend I was able to be a part of something extraordinary. I was fortunate enough to be in attendance at the NCAA Men’s Division I and II Volleyball Championship at the Galen Center. The final’s match was between two amazing teams, the UC Irvine Anteaters and USC Trojans.
