OLYMPICS : Brazil to win both Beach Volleyball gold medals?

Brazil will be looking to break the Beach Volleyball stranglehold that the United States has in the Olympics as they seek to emerge victorious in both the Mens and Womens Beach Volleyball at the London 2012 Olympics.

The beach volleyball at the London 2012 Oympics takes place between Saturday 28 July and Thursday 9 August at the Horse Guards Parade in central London.

Brazilian Women Gunning For Beach Volleyball Gold

In London 2012 Olympic Beach Volleyball betting, Brazil pair Juliana Felisberta and Larissa Franca are priced at 3.71. So how good are the Brazilians? Look at this .. ;-)

Chinese pairing, Zhang Xi and Xue Chen are 4.55 for the gold, making them second favourites, they won bronze at the last Olympic Beach Volleyball event in 2008.

American duo Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor are the defending champions, winning gold in Beijing and also in Athens 2004. But this time the US pair are third favourites to win in a third straight olympics at 4.62.

Men play Beach Volleyball too? Really?

Apparently the men play beach volleyball as well - although that seems a bit pointless to me - and Brazil are also the favourites to win Men's Beach Volleyball in London too.

Current betting lines :
BRAZIL - Alison Cerutti and Emanuel Rego at 3.80
USA - Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser at 3.98
GERMANY - Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann at 9.60

The American duo are the defending champions, while Brazillian Rego won silver medal with a different partner in Beijing 2008, and the Germans are the only European team to have won a world championship title in Beach Volleyball, so are formidable opponents.
