Congrats. That was a great match.

True Champions.

Happy to see these athletes commended for their skills.

Grew up in Newport Beach, California. The city has erected a dozen beach volleyball courts. Each has a sign-up sheet required to reserve your spot. The wait can be quite long: it is a very popular, highly demanding sport - moving on sand is not easy. Congratulations to them!

I would.

USA has won like 20 medals in discus, shot put, hurdles, pole vault, sprints, and other T&F events.

19 of them silver & bronze, so By definition, they are not winners

So the second and third place finisher didn't beat the remaining competitors who finished behind them? They lost silver snd bronze medals? Ok...
