As the men’s and women’s beach volleyball knockout stages began, Team USA was front and center fighting for more gold medals to bring home from Tokyo.

First up for the American duos was Kelly Claes and Sarah Sponcil.

After going 3-0 in pool play, Claes and Sponcil faced Canada’s Heather Bansley and Brandie Wilkerson on Saturday in the Round of 16. Claes and Sponcil took the first set 24-22 before dropping the second 21-18 and the third 15-13. The American duo’s first loss in Tokyo eliminates them from the Olympic competition.

First-time Olympians Claes, 25, and Sponcil, 24, will have plenty of time to hopefully earn medals in 2024 and beyond.

Next up was American men’s pair Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena, who went 2-1 in pool play. Dalhausser and Lucena battled Qatar’s Ahmed Tijan and Cherif Younousse in the Round of 16 early Sunday morning.

Team USA won the first set 21-14 before losing the second 21-19 and the third 15-11.

With the loss, Dalhausser’s run for another gold medal has come to an end alongside his first-time Olympian partner, Lucena.

The next two days of competition will feature the other two Team USA beach volleyball pairs: April Ross and Alix Klineman, and Tri Bourne and Jake Gibb.

Ross and Klineman will face Cuba’s Lidy Echevarria and Leila Martinez on Sunday, Aug. 1, at 8 p.m. ET.

Bourne and Gibb will also represent the U.S. when they face Germans Clemens Wickler and Julius Thole on Monday, Aug. 2, at 9 a.m. ET.

If both U.S. men’s teams win in the Round of 16 and quarterfinal, they would face each other in the semifinal, which means Team USA could take home two medals.

Beach Bits:

� From 2006-2018 Dalhausser won at least one FIVB title each year, and the 13-year streak was the second longest in Tour history behind Brazil's Emanuel Rego (14 straight seasons).

� Dalhausser either led or tied for the lead in FIVB titles in six of the eight seasons between 2010 and 2017.

� On the FIVB Tour, Dalhausser and Rogers began the 2007 season with a pair of fifth-place finishes, but then played for a medal in 41 of 49 international tournaments through the end of the 2012 season (winning 22 times in that span).

� From 2008-2010, Dalhausser and Rogers won nine of the 13 FIVB Grand Slams they played, along with two seconds, one third and one fifth.

� Dalhausser was tied atop the AVP Tour in victories over the five seasons from 2006-10, tallying 43 in those five years.

� Dalhausser and Rogers were in the semifinals of 39 consecutive AVP team events they competed in, from July 2006 to May 2009.

� Dalhausser and Rogers won a gold medal in Quebec in 2011, helping the USA to its first ever podium sweep on the FIVB Tour.

� When Dalhausser and Nick Lucena won the first event of 2020 in Long Beach, it marked the first time in AVP history that teammates who were both over 40 years old won a tournament.

2020: Dalhausser and Lucena won two of the three AVP events, sweeping 9 of their 12 matches. Dalhausser led the Tour in blocks (2.0 per set), aces (1.0 per set) and hitting percentage (.574). The duo played just one FIVB tournament, placing fifth.

2019: Dalhausser and Lucena won once on the AVP Tour in their six events as partners, to go with a second place finish and a pair of thirds. Dalhausser led the Tour in hitting percentage (.522), was second in blocks (2.02 per set) and eighth in aces (.61 per set). The duo played 10 times on the FIVB Tour, beginning the year with a silver medal. They also had a fourth-place finish and three fifths.

2018: Dalhausser and Lucena won four AVP events in their six tournaments together. The duo finished with a 26-4 match record, and their four AVP wins were the most on Tour since 2014. Dalhausser was second in hitting percentage (.529), and third in both blocks (1.77 per set) and aces (.90 per set). The duo played six international events, winning one gold medal in a major event.

2017: Dalhausser and Lucena won three AVP titles in five events. Outside of a forfeit, the pair was 22-3 in matches. Dalhausser ended the year leading the AVP in blocks (2.29 per set) and hitting percentage (.651), and was second in aces (.80 per set). Internationally the duo won three golds and one bronze in seven FIVB tournaments, and placed fifth in the World Championships.

2016: Dalhausser and Lucena played in four AVP events, winning twice. The pair lost three matches during the season, and all three were due to injury forfeits. Still, Dalhausser managed to lead the AVP in blocks (2.41 per set) and hitting percentage (.579) and was third in aces (0.74 per set). Internationally Dalhausser and Lucena won four times (tied for the most of any team) and claimed eight medals, which was the most on Tour. The duo finished fifth in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

2015: Dalhausser opened the season with a second-place finish on the AVP with Rosenthal. After a brief injury sidelined him for a couple months, Dalhausser reunited with Nick Lucena for the first time since 2005. The duo played three times on the AVP Tour, winning the Manhattan Beach Open. He led the Tour in blocks (2.12 per set) and hitting percentage (.517) and ranked third in aces (0.79 per set). On the FIVB Tour Dalhausser and Rosenthal played twice with a best of ninth. Then he won three silvers and one gold in five competitions with Lucena.

2014: Dalhausser continued his partnership with Rosenthal, and the duo improved their AVP finishes from third to second to first, winning the Manhattan Beach Open. They had to withdraw from Cincinnati due to an abdominal injury to Dalhausser.  Statistically, he ended the year first in hitting percentage (.486), second in blocks per game (1.89) and fifth in aces per game (.71).  On the FIVB Tour, they had one semifinal in the first four events, then followed that up with four straight gold medal match appearances, winning three titles including the Long Beach event. While the pair did not reach a semifinal in their last two international events, they still completed the season second in points and first in wins (three).

2013: Dalhausser began a new partnership with Sean Rosenthal, playing an FIVB event with a partner other than Rogers for the first time since 2005. The duo won the season opener, winning in their first outing together. In the World Championships in Stare Jablonki Dalhausser and Rosenthal placed ninth. They won two more gold medals in Grand Slam events, including in Long Beach. Their three gold medals tied for the most on Tour, but they finished ranked ninth as they only played in eight tournaments. Dalhausser and Casey Jennings competed together in one FIVB event, winning a silver. On the AVP Tour, Dalhausser and Rosenthal advanced to five semifinals in the nine events, winning once and placing second twice. They were the fourth ranked team on tour. Dalhausser finished second in blocks per game (1.89) and hitting percentage (.475) and fourth in aces per game (.87).

2012: Dalhausser and Rogers won their first two FIVB events of the year. The rest of the season the duo advanced to four semifinals, winning two bronze medals. They finished ninth in the London Olympics. For the season, the pair played in nine events with four medals, ending as the third-ranked team on the FIVB Tour.

2011: Dalhausser and Rogers began the year with two gold medals, extending their streak to seven straight tournament wins, and in the process established a new FIVB record for consecutive match wins (40 straight until the gold medal match in Prague). After three tournaments without playing for a medal, including a ninth-place finish at the World Championships in Rome, the duo ended the year with medals in each of their last six events, including two wins.

2010: Dalhausser and Rogers advanced to the championship match in the AVP season opener in Fort Lauderdale, but the match was cancelled due to weather. The duo swept their first 13 straight opponents on the AVP and won all 34 matches, winning five titles in the process. The pair dropped only six sets on the AVP Tour. On the FIVB Tour, Dalhausser and Rogers came through the contender's bracket to win the season opener in Brasilia, becoming the first American team to win a title in Brazil since 1996. They won nine titles in their 12 international outings, setting the mark for the most team wins in FIVB single season history. The pair won the last five FIVB events they played in, including three Grand Slams, ending on a 23-match win streak.

2009: Won the season opener with Rogers, marking the third straight season the duo has begun the AVP year with a title. The pair won four of the first five AVP events but then did not win in their next three tournaments, marking the first time since 2007 the duo had gone that many domestic events without garnering a title. Dalhausser and Rogers won the next three AVP events, locking up their fourth straight season with the most team wins on the AVP. In Hermosa Beach Dalhausser became the 16th player to surpass $1 million in career earnings. On the FIVB Tour, the pair placed third in the World Championships in Stavanger. In Marseille, Dalhausser and Rogers put an end to the record 25-match win streak by Germany's Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann en route to winning the title, their first international victory since their Olympic Gold in Beijing, before winning another Grand Slam title in Klagenfurt. The duo returned to the U.S. and won three straight AVP titles before their 34-match winning streak was ended in the Chicago finale. Statistically Dalhausser completed the trifecta, leading the tour in aces per game (1.06), blocks per game (2.11) and hitting percentage (.498).

2008: Dalhausser and Rogers began the season claiming the first five AVP titles, winning their first 27 matches before placing third in Atlanta, the only AVP event they did not play in the finals. The duo won 11 domestic titles and Dalhausser was chosen by John Hyden in the individual event, helping him to a win. For the second straight season he was the top-ranked player while pacing the tour in victories (11) and earnings. He had the most blocks per game (2.12) and led in hitting percentage (.519) and was third in aces per game (.83). Internationally, the duo played seven events, winning medals in all of them. They began the season with a pair of bronzes, then in four Grand Slams won a silver and three golds. During the Olympic qualifying process, they accumulated the highest point total in the world, and entered the Beijing Games on a 21-match FIVB winning streak, one win shy of the record. In their first match, they were upset by the 23rd-seeded team, but rebounded to win the gold medal.

2007: Dalhausser and Rogers advanced to the semifinals in all 16 AVP team events, winning 10 times, including in Manhattan Beach. Dalhausser was the top ranked player on tour and he again led the tour in both blocks per game (2.24) and hitting percentage (.541), while moving up to second in aces per game (1.02). In the individual event in Las Vegas he placed second. Internationally, the duo won three medals, including a gold medal in the World Championships in Gstaad, marking the first time an American team had won that title.

2006: Began playing with Rogers, and the duo placed ninth in the season opener before winning the next four tournaments. They failed to advance to the semifinals just once after that, finishing fifth, and tallied a total of eight wins in nine finals appearances. Dalhausser was the third-ranked player on tour, and led the tour in both blocks per game (2.21) and hitting percentage (.483) while ranking fourth in aces per game (.65). He and Rogers played six FIVB events, winning three medals, including a gold medal in the Grand Slam in Klagenfurt that ended a 50-event drought for U.S. men winning internationally.

2005: Played the entire domestic season with Lucena, and following a 17th-place finish in their second event, won in Austin after winning three matches in the contender's bracket and defeating each of the top three seeds in the tournament. They returned to the semifinals three times after that, including a second-place finish in Manhattan Beach. Dalhausser ended as the 13th-ranked player on tour, and he led the tour in blocks per game (2.33). He competed in three FIVB tournaments, placing seventh in the World Championships in Berlin with Todd Rogers in their first event together, and then 25th with Lucena in a pair of Grand Slams.

2004: Started out the season with a seventh in Ft. Lauderdale with Lucena. In Huntington Beach they advanced to their first semifinal after knocking off top seeded Karch Kiraly and Mike Lambert, as well as both U.S. Olympic teams. Dalhausser closed the season with a ninth place playing with Dain Blanton. He ranked sixth in hitting percentage (.426). He played his first FIVB tournament, with Adam Roberts, finishing 25th.

2003: Made his pro beach volleyball debut in Ft. Lauderdale with Nick Lucena, but they failed to emerge from the qualifier. He played in the next qualifier with Justin Phipps before returning to Lucena for the next four events, all of which included main draw appearances with a best of 13th.


� Qualified for 2008 Beijing Olympics as the number two seed with Todd Rogers. After finishing pool play with a 2-1 record, the duo won all four matches in bracket play in winning the Gold Medal, defeating Marcio Araujo / Fabio Luiz Magalhaes of Brazil in the finals.

� Qualified for 2012 London Olympics as the number two seed with Todd Rogers. Went 3-0 in pool play but lost in the first round of bracket play to Italy's Daniele Lupo / Paolo Nicolai.

� Qualified with Nick Lucena for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics as the third seeds. The duo went undefeated in pool play, and finished fifth after being eliminated by eventual Gold Medalists Alison Ceruti and Bruno Oscar Schmidt of Brazil in three sets.

Philip "Phil" Peter Dalhausser (born January 26, 1980) is a retired Swiss-born American professional beach volleyball player, playing as a blocker.[1] He and his former playing partner, Todd Rogers, were the 2007 AVP Tour and FIVB world champions.

Dalhausser and Rogers dominated both the domestic US tour and now the FIVB international tour winning #1 team honors on both tours in 2010. Dalhausser and Rogers were Olympic gold medalists at the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics.

Personal life[edit]

Dalhausser was born in Baden, Aargau, Switzerland, to a German father, Peter, and a Swiss mother, Marianne. He now calls his hometown Ventura, California. He attended Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida. Dalhausser did not start playing volleyball until his senior year in high school.

He attended the University of Central Florida and joined Lambda Chi Alpha, where he was named "Most Valuable Player" and received the William G. Morgan Award for most outstanding player. He earned a business degree at UCF and played for the club volleyball team.[2] After college, he worked for a concrete company and then worked a short time for a firm that painted stripes on Florida highways.

In 2011, Dalhausser married Jennifer Corral, who was also a professional beach volleyball player. The couple have two children.[3]

Volleyball career[edit]


Dalhausser has previously teamed up with Nick Lucena.

At 6'9" (206 cm), Dalhausser led the 2005–2010 AVP tour in blocks. In 2005 he was sixth in kill percentage.[2]

In 2006, Dalhausser teamed up with Todd Rogers. Rogers, an 11 years veteran of professional beach volleyball, thought he needed someone to help him get to the next level and believed Dalhausser had the potential to become the best player in the world. Rogers plays two roles, both partner and coach to Dalhausser.[4]

In 2007, Dalhausser and Rogers won the Beach Volleyball World Championships in Gstaad, Switzerland, becoming the first U.S. beach team to win the gold medal at the tournament.


Dalhausser qualified for the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics to represent the United States with his teammate Todd Rogers by being the top seeded American team through the international qualification process.

Dalhausser and Rogers had a record of 6–1 in their first Olympics, being upset in their opening match by 23rd-ranked Latvia.[5] They proceeded to win the rest of their games, coming back from 6–0 in the third set to beat 20th-seeded Switzerland.

Dalhausser and Rogers won the gold medal match two sets to one against Márcio Araújo and Fabio Luiz Magalhães of Brazil. Newly crowned women's beach volleyball champions and compatriots Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh were watching from the stands in the final. Dalhausser made nine blocks in the championship match, with five coming in the deciding third set, putting the US up to a 9–1 lead and eventually winning it 15–4. Dalhausser was named tournament MVP. This made the United States the only country to win gold medals in men's and women's beach volleyball at the same Olympics.[4]

Dalhausser and Rogers failed to defend their gold medal at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The pair was ousted in the round of 16 by the young Italian team of Paolo Nicolai and Daniele Lupo, losing in straight sets for the first time in their Olympic careers.

Dalhausser paired up with Nick Lucena for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, winning their debut match against Tunisia in straight sets.[6]

At the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena made it into the quarterfinals match where they played against Brazil's top-ranked team of 6-foot-8 Alison "The Mammoth" Cerutti and Bruno Oscar Schmidt. There they were eliminated by a 2-1 (21-14, 12–21, 15-9) scoreline, by the hometown's favorite team.[7]

Dalhausser and Lucena made it again to the 2020 Olympics where they finished 9th after a 1-2 against Cherif/Ahmed from Qatar. After the Olympic tournament, Dalhausser decided to retire from professional beach volleyball.[8]
