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.
