Brazil Volleyball Kick Save: The Best Play of the 2012 Olympics?

by at . Comments

A remarkable kick save - yes, you can do that - made by a member of Brazil's women's volleyball team didn't result a medal, or even help win a match, but is still one of top highlights of the London Olympics so far.

Don't believe us? Watch and you'll agree:

Like many residents of her soccer-crazed nation, Fabiana Oliveira clearly plays that sport in addition to volleyball, as evidenced by the INSANE bicycle kick save she executed to keep a point alive in the second set against South Korea.

South Korea would ultimately win the match, but Brazil went on to win the point after "Fabi" made the save. Thank goodness, because she deserves every decibel of the ovation she got from her stunned teammates, and the crowd.

It's not like she played soccer in addition to volleyball. She's from Rio, so she probably grew up playing futevôlei at the beach - which, as you might have noticed by its name, is combination of the two.
