wn criticism from fans Lescott said on his Instagram from love520's blog

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Men and women in skimpy swimsuits frolicked in the surf, sprawled out on towels or kicked around a soccer ball at Copacabana Beach. Timofey Mozgov Authentic Jersey . Others cooled themselves under an umbrella at one of the many open-air kiosks serving food, beer and the local sugar cane cocktail, caipirinha.Inside the Olympic beach volleyball venue, the atmosphere was only slightly less festive.With a DJ spinning a samba beat and thousands cheering on their hometown teams, the Olympics sexiest sport returned to its spiritual home on Saturday for an opening session that brought out the best the beach has to offer.Fans sang, waved their flags and cheered on their teams for the four matches on a sun-baked morning at the temporary stadium erected on this citys signature strip of sand. (Two more were to follow in the afternoon and evening.) Players kicked up sand as they dived for the ball, celebrated points with hugs and high-fives, and invariably saluted the crowd when walking off at after their matches.I love South American fans, and I love how the people love sports, said Argentinas Georgiana Klug, who lost her opener with Ana Gallay, falling to Spain in straight sets. All the singing, dancing -- it makes me feel like home.Beach volleyball joined the Olympic program at Atlanta in 1996, but for most Summer Games the venue has been built in a park (or parking lot), with thousands of tons of sand trucked in to create the playing surface. For the first time since Sydney in 2000, the sport is returning to an actual beach.And theres none more fitting.With the party ready to start both in and outside the arena, Italian Adrian Carambula got things started with his trademark Skyball, a high and spinning serve that wanders into the path of the sunshine and wind and confounds attempts at a return. Although he typically uses it sparingly, Carambula said he was egged on by his friends to start things off with a little flair.They said they wouldnt talk to me if I didnt, he said in a post-match, mix zone interview that was twice interrupted because Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi asked him to come over and pose for a picture.U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry also watched Carambula and Alex Ranghieri beat Clemens Doppler and Alexander Horst 21-14, 21-13.My legs were shaking before the first serve, Carambula said. When I walked in I actually got a little bit emotional. I wasnt expecting it, but I embraced it and I played with it. So very special.The biggest crowd -- and the most vocal support -- was for Brazils reigning world champions Alison and Bruno, who beat Canada in a straight-set but razor-thin 21-19, 22-20 victory. In the morning sessions other match, Austria beat Costa Rica in straight sets.In the afternoon, the American team of Casey Patterson and Jake Gibb beat Qatar 21-16, 21-16; Brazils Agatha and Barbara needed three sets to get past the Czech Republic; the Dutch men beat Russia in straight sets and the women did the same to Venezuela.In the early part of the night session, the Spanish men beat Austria and Poland beat Germany.---Jimmy Golen has covered Olympic beach volleyball since 2008.

MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal.Joleon Lescott has invited an Aston Villa fan to voice his displeasure in person after the defender was criticised for his actions on social media. Lescott was in the Villa team thrashed 6-0 by Liverpool at home in the Premier League on Saturday, a result which had many supporters leaving long before the final whistle.Shortly after the game, the former Everton and Manchester City defender tweeted a picture of a Mercedes car worth more than £120,000. It was followed by an apology which included an admission there was a lack of commitment from Villas players against Liverpool.Lescott said: Im not one for tweeting after games whether its a good, bad or indifferent result but I would like to apologise for the performance today, personally and collectively.Liverpool are and were better than us today but that doesnt excuse mine and the teams (sic) lack of commitment for the 90 minutes.
