Lauren Fendrick and Brooke Sweat (USA) are today’s featured team in the Rio 2016 photo series. They are in Pool A of the women’s beach volleyball preliminary rounds at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Fendrick and Sweat are currently 0-2 in their pool.  Their final match in pool play is August 11 at 11:30 PDT against Ekaterina Birlova and Evgenia Ukolova (Russia) who are also 0-2.  Visit NBC Sports for local time.

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.
