The US National Volleyball team is one of the most dominating sport teams in the World. They have 3 Gold Medals in the past 7 Summer Olympic Games including the Gold Medal at the last Olympics in Beijing, China. Clay Stanley, the top scorer at the Olympics in Beijing, will be playing at this year’s Pan American Cup. The American success at the Pan-Am Cup has been outstanding winning 3 out of the last 4 cups and if they win this year it will be 3 in a row!

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.

considering rooney is a man united legend, and has scored the all time number of goals, i think people are being a bit harsh on him at the moment. i watched carrack's testimonial not long ago, and in honesty i couldn't really tell him apart from those who have retired but his heart is in united and he's a class player. maybe it's time for him to step aside for the newer players to start building on united's success, and play less games but the lads on social media calling him out for every second he's not training, or demanding we drop him i think need to calm down. this is a proper legend, and we should respect his commitment to the team. thoughts?

manchester has been & will always be great we just need to put more trust in the younger players. maybe some new additions to the team would help, but all in all i think it's been decent.
