FOUR YEARS HOSTING THE WORLD

2016 – RETURN FROM RIO
ASICS WSOBV GREETS OLYMPIANS

The summer of 2016 was a very special one with the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball coming right after the Olympic Games in Rio. It was a huge homecoming for American beach athletes who performed well in Brazil and an immediate opportunity for redemption for those who came up short.

2015 – BRAZILIAN BREAKOUT
BOTH FINALS FEATURE USA V BRAZIL

The 2015 ASICS WSOBV event broke records for attendance, participation and TV ratings as players fought for precious Olympic qualifying points. The top seeds held as elite American and Brazilian teams faced off in both finals Bruno Oscar Schmidt / Alison Cerutti and Larissa França / Talita Antunes beat their U.S. rivals to make it a huge day for Brazil. The other big story was Kerri Walsh-Jennings playing with a severe shoulder injury and earning the silver medal virtually one-handed.

2014 – STAR SPANGLED SWEEP
FAVORITES WIN ON HOME SAND

The ASICS WSOBV made a highly anticipated return in 2014 (July 22-27) largely because two American “dream teams” were competing. Coming off the birth of her third child, three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh-Jennings partnered with London silver medalist April Ross, while Beijing gold medalist Phil Dalhausser and Sean Rosenthal were back to defend their WSOBV title. The favorites did not disappoint, as both USA teams captured gold medals.
