DALHAUSSER & ROSENTHAL
Together since: 2013 (4)
Former Olympic champion Phil Dalhausser turned to Sean Rosenthal
when he and long-time partner Todd Rogers went their separate ways
at the end of 2012. It was a partnership that began in the best way
possible with gold at the Fuzhou Open, the first FIVB event of 2013,
before taking out the Rome Grand Slam title, the last event prior to
the FIVB World Championships. As well as the Beijing 2008 Olympic
Games title, Dalhausser became world champion with Rogers in 2007
and then won bronze at the 2009 World Championships. Rosenthal
ended his six-year partnership with Jacob Gibb by winning the 2012
World Tour title after claiming five podium finishes. Their best result
at a World Championships was their quarterfinal finish at Berlin 2005
and they also reached the last eight in their two Olympic appearances
in Beijing 2008 and London 2012. Dalhausser and Rosenthal,
individually, have appeared in seven World Championships in total.
