Should have been the US in the final, since they beat Japan in the group stage. Japan only made it through because they beat weaker opponents by a stronger margin

Maybe she's practicing for swimming finals...

Not a cool title. She worked her butt off in the match and did a good job. She was #1 in digs and #3 in serve receive for the tournament.

Yeah, the title is lame. The Brasilians did a good job.

Good on Japan for putting up a good fight.

Nice angle

The front crawl on a solid surface is not the most effective form of locomotion. No wonder they lost.

Japan Volleyball team will never reach the power of USA, Brazil, Russia, Cuba if they don't strip off their "cuteness" factor. These 4 powerhouse teams play like horses while Japanese players train - and are defeated - like koalas.

I for one am extremely impressed with Arisa Sato's drive and determination, which is very clearly demonstrated in her efforts to dive for any ball she could.

Dat Booty! besides that thought, I played volleyball in high school and sometimes going down like that on a hard floor hurts. Hope she's ok.
