The Serbia women’s national volleyball team is looking for their first ever medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics. This is both Serbia’s third straight Olympic appearance and their third time ever competing in the Games. They finished in fifth place in 2008 and in 11th place in 2012.

Serbia punched their ticket to Rio by finishing second in the 2015 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Cup, and they’ve most definitely proved that they belong on the biggest stage in sports. Serbia went 3-2 in group play, which put them in third place in Pool B and secured them a spot in the eight-team quarterfinals.

In the knockout stage, Serbia came out swinging, eliminating Russia with a perfect 3-0 sweep. But their next test will be much tougher, as they are set for a rematch with the USA in the semifinals. During group play, the U.S. beat Serbia 3-1.

Serbia will face off against the U.S. on Thursday, August 18 at 12:00 p.m. To get ready for the big game, enjoy the hottest photos of the Serbian volleyball team while you still can. You gotta cherish these memories before Karsta Lowe permanently alters faces with some hellacious spikes.
