Russia meet Brazil in women's volleyball

The draw for the women's Olympic volleyball quarter-finals was confirmed on Sunday as the round-robin group stages came to an end.

Two sides finished with five wins from five - Russia in Pool A and the United States in B - while Algeria (A) and Serbia (B) both ended without a win.

Russia will face defending champions Brazil - last-gasp qualifiers in B - while the Dominican Republic lie in wait for America.

China and Japan meet in an all-Asian affair, while Italy will go up against South Korea in the fourth and final encounter.

Great Britain and Turkey are the other sides to exit at this stage.

The Koreans carry the top-scoring player of the tournament through to the knockout stages in the shape of Yeon-Koung Kim (137), with American star Destinee Hooker trailing in her wake with 104.

Great Britain captain Lynne Beattie was her side's most dangerous weapon with 60 points, while Foluke Akinradewo, also of the States, had a tremendous 75 blocks to her name.

The brilliant Dominican libero, Brenda Castillo, was named as the best player in her specialist position.

The quarter-finals take place on Tuesday.
