Snow Volleyball Is A Real Thing—And It's Gaining Momentum At The 2018 Olympics

By Mike Walsh

When you watch the Summer Olympics, there is a sense of pleasant ease as you watch gymnasts do their job, and water polo, swimming, and of course, beach volleyball. The Winter Olympics bring a little bit more anxiety as you watch people with knives on their feet work together to earn points by doing dangerous tricks. And it's cold.

Winter Olympians have decided to bring a little piece of the Summer Olympics with them to Pyeongchang, though.

A pick-up game of "snow volleyball" took place directly outside the Austrian team's lodgings and featured volleyball players from South Korea, Austria, China, Brazil, and Serbia.
