“This has been the most beautiful and
successful Olympic Games for beach
volleyball as all the best teams were
here. The gold medal match was a great,
great exhibition. We wanted to win, but
sometimes you have to step back and say
it was a great game.”
Emanuel Rego
“I think we still had
a chance in the first
set when we had a
six-point lead, but
we kind of lost it at
that point. We played
good, they played
better.”
Chen Xue
(following semifinal defeat
by May-Treanor and Walsh)
“I said to Larissa, ‘Let’s go, don’t give up’.
The point is, Juliana and Larissa have a
long history and we felt it. I didn’t ever
think we would lose the second set.”
Juliana Felisberta
(following a quarterfinal win over Germany’s
Laura Ludwig and Sara Goller)
