Bruno and Alison Trade Spikes for Slapshots at World Tour Finals

From the sun-beat beaches of Rio to the frost-bit beaches of Toronto, 2016 Olympic Champions Alison/Bruno of Brazil took a trip to the Mattamy Athletic Center, the home of the Ryerson University hockey teams, to try a different style of volleyball before beginning action at this week’s FIVB World Tour finals.

Escorted by Canadian pro Kacie MacTavish (not playing in this week’s tournament), the Brazilian pair very-nearly ended their athletics careers of any variety.

Davis showed off by beating Bruno in a speed-skating challenge, and then the boys went after her in goal with a penalty shootout.

Back on the beach, Alison and Bruno won their first two matches of the tournament 2-0 and earned a Pool A win and a free pass to the quarterfinals.
