Day one of beach volleyball action in Beijing has concluded and day two is about to begin.  On the women's side of the event, neither one of the Canadian women's duos made it through yesterday.  MacTavish and Rodrigue were defeated in the first round and Bansley-Maloney were eliminated in the second round.  Lessard-Martin have a bye into the main draw and will be the only Canadian women's team still in the event.

On the men's side of the event two teams have made it through qualification into main draw pool play action.  Those teams are playing the #2 and #3 seeded teams in the tournament, both from Brazil, in their first match of pool play this evening.  The live streaming video links and those match ups are:
