Futevólei Tournament Finals in Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, 9.11.11

Futevólei is a mashup of beach volleyball and soccer that started in Rio de Janeiro in the 1960’s and went global in the 90’s. Brazilians call it “Arte dos pés à cabeça,” which sounds less elegant in translation – “Art from your head to your feet.”

Not an Olympic sport (yet).
