Aus v Norway: McHugh and Schumann take on world no.1 Norway in Olympic debut
Chris McHugh and Damien Schumann could not have hoped for a more exciting challenge on debut, taking on the world number one team when the men’s Beach Volleyball competition gets underway at Shiokaze Park on Saturday. Their first opponents in Pool A are the young Norwegian duo of Anders Mol and Christian Sorum, who have been the number one team in the world for the past three years. Despite missing the medals in their last three tournaments before the Games, they are still gold medal contenders and a tough opening matchup. Damien Schumann said he and McHugh are looking forward to starting off their first Olympic campaign against such quality opponents. Read the full story on the Australian Olympic Team website.
