by Unknown at 7:53 PM

Americans Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser are one step closer to a medal at the Beijing Olympics after beating Germans, Klemperer/Koreng, today. The world champion U.S. pair fought back after being down 18-20 in the second set to win, 21-13, 25-23.

Dalhausser put up a monster six blocks, including a stuff at the end to close out a tight second set.

Rogers/Dalhausser will play Georgia in the semifinals on Wednesday morning (Tuesday evening PDT).
