Both the men's and women's U.S. Olympic Volleyball teams have advanced to the quarterfinals of this years tournament, and they both have serious medal aspirations.
The women are ranked first in the world and behind players like Destinee Hooker and Logan Tom, have sailed through the group stages.
If they can avoid an upset against the Dominican Republic, they will have two matches to get on the medal stand.
The men will have a tough matchup against Italy, but the defending Olympic champions still have all the ability to win and advance to the semis.
On the sand, although the men's side has been a disappointment, the USA women still have two teams remaining that have reached the semifinals, and will have an excellent chance to not only obtain medals, but perhaps even meet in the gold-medal game.
Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings are the defending Olympic champions, but Jen Kessey and April Ross have also made it to the semis and could end the teams amazing winning streak.
Standing in their way are the top two teams in the world. May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings will face the number two team from China, while Kessey and Ross will take on a top-ranked Brazilian team.
While they may be the lower ranked teams, it would be hard to bet against either American squad based on how well they have played in the tournament thus far.
They will have an opportunity to make U.S. Olympic history by meeting in the finals, and with any luck from Brazil, possibly gain two spots on China in the medal count.
