Olympic Women's Volleyball Semi-Final - Brazil vs Japan

Action shot...

 

I went to the Olympic Women's Volleyball Semi-final at Earl's Court, London where Brazil played Japan to see who would play the USA for Gold.

 

After an even start at the beginning of the 1st set, Brazil went away and won convincingly (3-0). As an amateur viewer of volleyball, the women's seemed less brutal than the men's but that seemed to lead to longer and better games.

 

Update: Brazil gold, USA silver, Japan bronze
