FIVB Stavanger: Boss-Ross bronze narrows gap for Olympic berth

by Unknown at 2:44 PM

The team of Jen Boss and April Ross narrowed the gap in the battle for the second US Olympic beach volleyball spot, taking bronze at the FIVB Stavanger Grand Slam to narrow the lead of compatriots Nicole Branagh/Elaine Youngs to 200 80 points.

That gap could easilly be closed in just one tournament. With four FIVB tournaments left before the Olympics begin, the battle between the two teams could be very close.

Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh won gold at Stavanger and maintain a wide lead in the US and world rankings.
