Brazil is currently ranked #1 in the World for volleyball and they will be looking to stop win their first Pan-Am medal. Volleyball is the second most popular sport in Brazil next to Soccer. On the beaches of Brazil they even play a mixture of Soccer and Volleyball called Footvolley, where you can only use your feet and head to play volleyball. It could be a great training technique that other countries could practice to improve their team play.
