Rio 2016 is a photo series of the top beach volleyball teams competing in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In 2013, the FIVB returned to U.S. soil for the first time in 10 years. I have been fortunate enough to attend the Long Beach, CA event for the past three years and watch the best beach volleyball players in the world.

Images are from the 2013 FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam, 2014 FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam and 2015 FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam.
