Volleyball Nations League
at Rimini, Italy
Thursday
United States d. Brazil, 25-17, 25-19, 23-25, 25-22.
Recap: (From USA Volleyball)
The U.S. Women’s National Team celebrated the return of its two-time Olympic medal-winning middle blocker Foluke (Akinradewo) Gunderson, a Stanford graduate, on Thursday with a 25-17, 25-19, 23-25, 25-22 victory over Brazil at the FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

The U.S. Women (3-0) and the 15 other women’s teams in Rimini, Italy, will take a three-day break while the men’s teams play matches. The U.S. Women will return on Monday to play defending world champion Serbia (1-2).

The FIVB updated its indoor rankings on Thursday and the U.S. Women moved from No. 2 to No. 1 in the world.

Gunderson played in her first match with the U.S. Women since the FIVB World Championship in October 2018. The following year, while playing for her pro club in Japan, Gunderson discovered she was pregnant with son Kayode, who was born in November 2019. Her 10 points came on seven kills, two blocks and one ace.
