Brooke and I battled through 11 matches in the first Olympic Qualifying event of the FIVB season. While I am hungry for a medal, I am pleased with what we accomplished. We upset the #2, #4, #6, #10, and #11 ranked teams in the World! We beat two Brazilian teams on their home soil and the 2008 Bronze medal Olympians. Not too shabby! Our next tournament will be in Shanghai, China next weekend. You can follow our progress on www.bvbinfo.com or on http://www.fivb.org/EN/BeachVolleyball/Competitions/WorldTour/2011/Event/index.asp?TournCode=WSHA2011. Thanks to everyone who followed us in Brasil!!
