When USA and South Korea met last night on the first day of Volleyball play, Logan was playing against a friend across the net. And after, Logan and Korean star Kim Yeon Koung gave each other a kiss on the cheek during post-match handshakes. They became friends while playing together at Fenerbahce the past year.
Here are a couple of pics that Yeon posted on Facebook last season
Good luck to Logan and Yeon for the rest of the tournament!

LONDON (July 28, 2012) – The U.S. Olympic Women’s Volleyball Team started its 2012 Olympic Games campaign by defeating Korea 25-19, 25-17, 20-25, 25-21 with a 15-1 block advantage on Saturday evening at Earls Court in London.
The U.S., ranked No. 1 in the world, continues Pool B competition on July 30 versus No. 2 Brazil at 4:45 p.m. local time (8:45 a.m. PT). Brazil opens the Olympic Games later tonight against Turkey in the final match of the day.
“We are obviously excited to open our pool with a win,” U.S. Olympic Women’s Volleyball Coach Hugh McCutcheon (Christchurch, New Zealand) said. “It was a very tough game and Korea made us work a lot. We did some things pretty well, but I have also seen room for improvement. Overall it was a good performance and I am evidently happy with the result because we have started with a win. The players responded well especially after dropping the third set and they turned it around in a very good way to finish it off in the fourth set.”

USA Coach Hugh McCutcheon:
“When you get to competing in the Olympic Games, having gone through it a couple times and having some success and having a feel for what works and doesn’t is an advantage. I don’t mean to suggest that this is algorithmic that you plug in A and get B. But I think there are some lessons learned that will apply in this campaign.”
“I think we are capable of playing some really good volleyball when we are playing great. There are no easy matches. We don’t expect any easy matches. We are trying to win the biggest event of our quadrennial. The challenge is real and we embrace that challenge. We are ready to battle. We want to be here. We have worked hard to be here. We think we are playing our best volleyball of the quad.”
