With just one year remaining before the start of the London Olympics, American volleyball appears to be in good shape on the whole. There is no shortage of talent across both beach and indoor whether we're talking men or women. But winning an Olympic medal takes more than just talent. It requires peaking at the right time, staying healthy, a good run up to the Games and just a little bit of luck.
Meeting or surpassing last quad's unprecedented success that included a gold in men's and women's beach, another gold for the indoor men and a silver for the indoor women will not be easy. But the USA should be able to produce some real contenders for all four medal stands.
Let's take a look at how our teams are faring as of today.
