Perhaps no other sport is more closely associated with Rio de Janeiro than beach volleyball, which has been in the Olympic Games since Atlanta 1996.
The men’s and women’s competitions will take place on the famous sands of Copacabana beach.
Beach volleyball was introduced at the Summer Olympic Games in the 1992 Games as a demonstration event, and has been an official Olympic sport since 1996.
The United States has won a gold medal at every Olympic beach volleyball tournament, in either the men’s or the women’s competition, since 1996. Brazil has won gold or silver in every men’s or women’s tournament since 1996.
