Volleyball - Olympics: Day 14

The men’s volleyball final is a rematch of the 2004 final, when Brazil took Italy down in four sets.

The teams are, of course, a bit different now, and Brazil has the home court advantage -- and pressure -- when it comes to Sunday’s match with Italy.

The Italians have never won gold, but have played for a medal in the last five Olympics.

Also closing up its Olympics is cycling, as American rider Howard Grotts starts 33rd, on the fifth line for the men’s mountain bike final.
