US men clinch medal, go for gold, in beach v'ball

Reigning world champions Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser will play for the gold medal in beach volleyball after they beat Georgia 21-11, 21-13 in the semifinal Wednesday in one of the quickest matches of the Olympics.
The U.S. pair will play on Friday against Marcio and Fabio, who upset Athens gold medalists and fellow Brazilians Emanuel and Ricardo 22-20, 21-18 on Wednesday to reach the final.
Renato Gomes and Jorge Terceiro are native Brazilians who obtained Georgian passports to avoid a quota that limits each country to two entries in the 24-team field.
Americans Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor will play in the women's final Thursday against China.
