Rogers, Dalhausser Set Record

It took a lot of work, but Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser won their 9th FIVB title of the year over the weekend in Aland, Finland. They beat the Brazilian duo of Marcio Araujo and Ricardo Santos in 3 sets to claim the record. They lost their second set by a demoralizing 10-21 score, and just eeked out the 3rd set 15-13.

In the second set Rogers was given a red card when he argued with the ref over a 4 hit call. Dallhauser and Santos each went for the ball at the net, Dalhausser flicked it up to Rogers, who set it back to Dalhausser. In earning a red card, a point was awarded to Brazil. Brazil then had a 6-0 run that effectively ended the Americans’ chances in the 2nd game.

With this record, Dalhausser and Rogers now have the 2007 World title, 2008 Olympic title, 2010 FIVB title and the record for most titles in a season. They are perhaps the best mens duo of all time.
