The Austrian men took on Binstock/Schachter to win their third and final pool match 21-19, 16-21, 15-8.

Liamin/Barsouk finish preliminary play with a 21-14, 21-17 win that puts them as the No. 2 finisher in Pool B. They will advance to the Round of 16 while Germany’s Bockermann/Fluggen are out of the Olympic tournament.

Hermannova/Slukova bested Argentina in three sets finishing with a score of 13-21, 21-19, 15-8.  Both teams finished at the bottom of Pool B and must wait until preliminary play concludes to find out if they qualify for a last chance lucky loser match. 


Women’s preliminary: Walsh Jennings/Ross (USA) vs. Forrer/Verge-Depre (SUI)

8:00 p.m. ET REPLAY

Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross won their third and final match of pool play in a shockingly close duel against Switzerland. The U.S. women quickly took the first set but the Swiss women challenged back in the second set, taking a 24-22 win that marked Walsh Jenning’s second match set loss of her Olympic career. In the third set, Forrer dove for a ball, injuring her neck and took a five minute break to receive medical attention. The U.S. women kept their momentum to win 21-13, 22-24, 15-12. The U.S. women will advance while the Swiss must wait for pool play to end to find out if they qualify for a last chance lucky loser match. 


Women’s preliminary: Alfaro/C. Charles (CRC) vs. Pazo/ Agudo (VEN)

5:30 p.m. ET REPLAY

The Venezuelan women bested Costa Rica to win their final match of pool play 21-16, 21-19. Neither team finished among the top two teams of Pool F but one team may qualify for a last chance lucky loser match.

4:30 p.m. ET REPLAY

In a stunning upset, tenth-seeded Elsa/Liliana swept second-seeded Agatha/Barbara 21-17, 22-20. The Spanish women finish pool play as the winner of Pool B with three wins and zero losses. Both teams are guaranteed a spot in the Round of 16.

Brazil’s Alison Cerutti severely sprained his ankle early in the first set. He took a medical timeout before returning to the court but moved gingerly to avoid further injury. The Brazilians swept Italy 21-19, 21-16 and will advance to the Round of 16 though Alison's injury will surely cause concern for the team.

China beat Australia 21-16, 21-11. The Chinese women are 2-1 in Pool C while the Australians are down 0-3 and eliminated from the tournament.

Spain took the first set 21-19. The U.S. men rallied back to take the second set 21-16. In the third and final set the U.S. men lost momentum after Spain challenged a play, forcing the match to stop for several minutes as both teams pushed back on the referee’s call. Herrera/Gavira took the third set to win 21-19, 16-21, 15-7. Spain will advance to the Round of 16.
