Team profile

World No. 2 the U.S. will attempt to defend their World Grand Prix title, which they won for the third time in 2010. They were ninth in 2009 with a young squad.
The 2008 Olympic Games silver medallists turned in three podium finishes in 2010 with an overall 28-13 record – a 10-win improvement over 2009. 

After picking up silver at the Montreux Volley Masters, the U.S. took bronze at the Pan American Cup. Team USA used an 11-match winning streak to clinch the World Grand Prix, winning gold with an undefeated record in the Final Round. 

Foluke Akinradewo was named MVP and Best Blocker, while Alisha Glass earned Best Setter in her first senior FIVB event. Destinee Hooker was the fourth-best scorer in her first senior FIVB event and after just four weeks’ training with the team. 

During the 2010 World Championship, the U.S. went undefeated in their first-round pool but lost a four-set match to eventual champions Russia in the semifinals, followed by a tough-luck five-set loss to hosts Japan in the bronze-medal match. Logan Tom was selected as the Best Receiver, while Stacy Sykora earned Best Libero honors. 

Coach profile

In their second year under Hugh McCutcheon, USA won medals in three of four tournaments, claiming the bronze at the Pan American Cup and silver at the Montreux Volley Masters, before a relatively inexperienced squad clinched gold in the World Grand Prix. They finished fourth at the FIVB World Championship. McCutcheon led the U.S. men to a gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games en route to being named the 2008 USOC National Coach of the Year. He compiled a 107-33 record in four years with the U.S. men's team. McCutcheon’s love for volleyball developed in New Zealand where he played on the junior and senior national teams.
