Nadine Zumkehr and Joana Heidrich (Switzerland) are today’s featured team in the Rio 2016 photo series. They finished second in Pool E of the women’s beach volleyball preliminary rounds at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Their 2-1 record in pool play advanced them into the single elimination round of 16. The next match for Zumkehr/Heidrich is August 13 at 4:00 PDT against Marleen Van Iersel and Madelein Meppelink (Netherlands) who finished second in Pool F. 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.
