Larissa França and Talita Antunes are one of two beach volleyball teams that are representing Brazil at the 2016 Summer Olympics. They have been playing together since 2014, and their most notable achievement was winning gold at the 2015 World Tour Finals.

At the 2008 Games, Larissa and partner Ana Paula Connelly advanced to the quarterfinals before losing to eventual gold medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor of the USA. In 2012, Larissa and Juliana Felisberta advanced to the semifinals before losing to eventual silver medalists Jennifer Kessy and April Ross of the USA. They would go on to defeat Xue Chen and Zhang Xi of China in the bronze medal game.
The 33-year-old Talita is also making her third Olympic appearance. At the 2008 Olympics, Talita and partner Renata Ribeiro lost to Walsh Jennings and May-Treanor in the semifinals, and they would miss out on a medal by losing to Chen and Xi in the bronze medal game. Four years later, Talita and Maria Elisa Antonelli lost to Kristýna Kolocová and Markéta Sluková of the Czech Republic in the round of 16.
At the 2016 Olympics, Larissa and Talita are off to a sensational start. They won Pool A after going 3-0 with clean sweeps over Ekaterina Birlova and Evgenia Ukolova of Russia, Lauren Fendrick and Brooke Sweat of the USA, and Monika Brzostek and Kinga Kołosińska of Poland.
