Beach Volleyball - Why Doesn't The Sand Stick?
#1
Look closely at the pictures on this page

What do you notice? Better yet, what don't you notice?

All these players have spent the afternoon jumping into and sprawling around in the sand. They're surrounded by their sport's playing surface and it's kicked up all around then. But look at the players' legs, arms and backsides. And take special notice of the hands. There's no sand anywhere.

Hmm, Mick, you put up a link with pictures of beach volley ballplayers - all women - and you seriously think you are gonna get a debate about why the sand doesn't stick?
Yea, good luck with that one, pal! :D:D:D

Why no men, I wonder? does it stick to them like normal?

Sorry Mick, Just don't see the sand at all.
You sure thats what they play on?
Can't say I've noticed it before like:D

Sorry Helen, but we are obliged to comment on these posts after Mick has spent so much time "researching" them Tongue

I notice on that site they have the Medal table done by total number of overall medals....ensuring the US is in top spot! Everyone else does it by number of Golds, of course!! :D
