do you know if the Court 1 is actually considered to placed inside the Arena or it will be a public free court outside the stadium?

 

In the tickets page, they include 6 matches for the last 2 sessions of preliminary round (as opposed to the usual 4), but the seat is only for the main arena. I don't know what that means, but people may be able to watch these 2 matches at the sidelines of Court 1? :p

Great, I was looking to watch matches of Costa Rica team (in London I followed Mauritius team :p), but they got a match early on day 1... I already have nightmares about that first day of the Games, when there are so many things to watch and I can't decide what to follow (I can be quite indecisive). :lol:

4/4 for all volleyball events

I bet that this wont happen. They might win 2 gold in beach volleyball, but some other country will win a gold in volleyball. I hope that France will win gold in mens volleyball.

No way we will win all 4 Volleyball gold medals, I expect 2 (3 if we're lucky).

 

I hope USA wins one of the indoors, most likely women, but they were overmatched in the Grand Prix Final

 

and seems like Brazil have problem with pressure playing at home (7-1)

I don't think we have a "problem with pressure playing at home". This was one competition, and we lost based on quality (meaning that our team was shit). The Olympics are different. You can lose a gold medal (Men's Football) and win another in a question of minutes (Women's Volleyball). At Rio, will be the same. Brazil will lose some "sure" golds, and maybe will win other medals that weren't expected.

 

I don't think we will win all 4 gold medals in Volleyball because we have other teams that are in the same level or are even better. For me, USA women has a more consistent team than Brazil. For Beach Volleyball, there's a number of teams that are good enough to win against our athletes etc

Bold prediction: Brazil wins <2 golds in all volleyball events.

A little less bold: I think Brazil will win 1 or 2 gold volleyball medals :p (and let's say 4 total medals....and 2 for the USA)
