The 2016 U.S. women’s volleyball team is looking for that elusive gold medal in Rio. The USA has won silver at back-to-back Olympics, and they’ve won four medals overall in indoor volleyball. They brought home silver in 1984, bronze in 1992, sliver in 2008, and silver in 2012.

While that résumé is highly impressive, the fact that they’ve never won it all has my red, white, and blue blood boiling. This is America. The land of the free, the home of the brave, and the place that wins every goddamn sporting event.

The U.S. did win the most recent FIVB World Championship in 2014, so I’m thinking that it’s finally their time to snatch that coveted Olympic gold medal. And here’s a gallery of the beautiful ladies that are going to get the job done. Look out world, these gorgeous and super talented badasses are coming for their rightful spot atop the volleyball mountain.
