It must now also happen for Keizer and Meppelink, because the first two group matches were lost.

The Dutch women only have a chance of a sequel in the tournament if they win.

However, we start with beach volleyball.

The duo Sanne Keizer and Madelein Meppelink have started their third and final group match.

Keizer and Meppelink just won a blistering first set against the American duo Klineman/Ross: 22-20.

That is a great achievement, because Klineman and Ross are placed second in this Olympic tournament.
