They hit the ball 5 times when they "won" the point.

OK, Brazil, we get it. You're good at soccer.

Neat. I guess soccer skills translate to other sports as well, not just the diving events.

Apparently? Anyone who's ever played volleyball once knows it's legal. It's also not even that rare. If a hard ball at your feet leaves you no time to get your hands down, you use your feet.

/still a cool play

I have played volleyball at least 10 times and did not know this was legal.

Of course Brazil would be the one to make that play. I'd like to see someone from the US try it - the ball would probably nail a spectator right in the face.

Watch it again. Took me 3 times to catch the fact that there was a touch from South Korea before the winning point.

It's legal in sand volleyball too.

Not that impressive, I used to do that all the time trying to score in soccer.

/which is why I switched to goalie

Am I missing a reference to a U.S. women's soccer/volleyball player kicking/spiking a ball into somebody's face? If so, I'd love to see the video because I'm a sick bastard.

Nah, just me suggesting that Brazil would be the ones to make a soccer-type kick.

It's a relatively recent rule change that allows it. I've played a lot of organized v-ball in the dim and distant past, and the rule was always "must contact the ball above the waist". Even that included a clause that contact by something other than hands or arms could not be intentional. I think it was about 10-15 years ago that it opened up.

You have to unfocus your eyes, like with those Magic Eye pictures. Or you can print it up and do it like a Mad Fold-In.

Nice gunt!

Totally legal. Not the most tactically-sound thing to do, since it gives you so little control over the ball, but sometimes things get desperate and your only choice is to go for it.
