Beach volleyball is a sport perfectly suited for Brazil – Los Angeles Times

Outside the beach volleyball venue Saturday, Brazilians and tourists danced on the boardwalk, munched on grilled shrimp, scanned racks of cheap jewelry and played futevolei — soccer on a volleyball court.

If you want to feel alive, you come to Copacabana Beach on a glistening, 85-degree day.

And if you want to feel good about the Olympics and fall in love with a new sport, you go to a venue that is brand new and yet one that Brazilian volleyball star Barbara called “so traditional, so classic.”

It’s right on the beach, touching the Atlantic Ocean.
