The Olympic Games are the event that is kind of unimaginable without the U.S. Men’s Volleyball national team. They competed in it for nine straight times prior to securing a berth in Tokyo next year.

 

Showing up at the Olympics in the Japanese capital will round up the number of consecutive participation of the United States national team in the event at 10. The USA had to play a do-or-die match of the FIVB International Qualifier against Pool B hosts, the Netherlands. And they did it.

“Really proud of the way that we competed all week. It’s not easy playing three matches in a row, especially when you’re the favorite. It’s always difficult to go out and play against teams that have nothing to lose. I think we handled that stress really well. We were poised and competed incredibly hard and played a great collective team game,” the U.S. head coach John Speraw said at the end of an encounter against the Dutch side.
