Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst, winners of the beach volleyball gold medal.

Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst, winners of the beach volleyball gold medal.

They took the gold; the two Brazilian teams finished 2nd and 4th; the USA won the bronze. The German women certainly earned their medal, as they beat both teams from Brazil in 2-0 matches.

One of the Germans nearly fell out of her bottom in the celebration!

Here's the German duo in action.

Before departing in the quarter-finals, the gorgeous Russian women beat Spain in the round of 16. That was a major upset, the #15 seed defeating the #2). The Russians went 1-2 in their pool, then barely snuck through the play-in match in three games. (The Spanish team was good. They had won their pool and all six of their games, even though the eventual Brazilian silver medalists were in that pool!)
