London Olympics: VolleyballThe London 2012 Olympic Volleyball competition takes place at Earls Court in west London from Saturday 28 July until Sunday 12 August. Both the men's and women's competitions will begin with a preliminary phase in which 12 teams will be divided into two pools of six, with each team playing every other side in their group. The eight best teams from this phase will go through to the knock-out competition until there are two teams remaining for the gold medal final. Volleyball is a fast and immensely skillful game played between two teams of six athletes - many of whom tower more than two metres high. Each team is allowed three touches before it must cross the net, with the aim usually to set up for a decisive "spike" - when a player smashes the ball overarm into the opponent's court. Astonishing reactions are needed by players if they want to prevent the ball - which can travel up to 130km/h - from touching the ground, making Volleyball an edge-of-the-seat experience for spectators.
