2012 Summer Olympic Games – Men’s Volleyball Schedule and Results

London 2012 Summer Olympic Games Mens Volleyball

Men’s volleyball began yesterday for the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games with some pretty one-sided victories. Besides Italy losing to Poland 1-3, all the other teams have been able to seal wins in three matches. Volleyball is a very technical game, which holds tons of strategy and physical endurance. It won’t be so easy from here on out. I for one couldn’t dive elbows first into the ground. Preliminary matches will be held until Monday, August 6, check out the full schedule and results after the jump.
