Who’d uh thunk it?  Coach Hugh McCutcheon said, “There was no one in the world banking on this team winning the Olympic Gold Medal”.

He was, of course, speaking of the US Volleyball team that had beaten Brazil three sets to one.  Brazil was top ranked and favored heavily to win, but someone forgot to tell the US squad.

The US has won Golds in these Olympics in Women’s Beach Volleyball, Men’s Beach Volleyball, Men’s indoor Volleyball, and took a Silver in Women’s indoor Volleyball.

What is most striking about this is that 3 of the matches for Gold out of 4 were between the US and Brazil.  The US took the rubber match for 2 out of the 3 Golds.

Clay Stanley was steaming to lead the US team with a total of 20 points.

McCutcheon finished with “We need to get home…My work here is done”.

Initials TB and BB were written on the players’ shoes in honor of Coach McCutcheon’s Father and Mother-in-law.
