It’s with a heavy heart that we bring you the news that Marketa Slukova and her Czech beach volleyball teammate were eliminated from the Olympic beach volleyball tournament. It was a helluva run by an unknown 24-year-old who entered the tournament as just another name and leaves as a Twitter darling. Check out the real-time Slukova search results. Our hope now is that she somehow finds her way into the ESPN Body issue.
This was probably the only time in BC history that we were rooting against the Americans.
