“Are there any beaches in Poland at all?” Americans have been asking this question after losing to Poland at beach volleyball. Facebook was awash with comments this week. Poland managed to tear apart Team USA in beach volleyball. Obviously, the Americans were annoyed at their own loss and also because they thought there were no beaches in Poland. “How could they win if they don’t have beaches!” said another American tweet. The Polish duet of Grzegorz Fijałek and Mariusz Prudel defeated the US beach volleyball team of Jacob Gibb and Sean Rosenthal. Up until now, the Americans were classified highest in this discipline. The whole game lasted only 43 minutes and the Americans simply could not get over being beaten.
