Micah Christenson, Erik Shoji and Kawika Shoji joined Team USA in winning a bronze medal Sunday at the Rio Olympics in Men’s volleyball.
 
This has been an Olympics of comebacks for Team USA.
 
They lost their first two matches, but came back to win three straight in pool play before losing in the semifinals to Italy.
 
On Sunday, they once again began the match in a deficit, falling two sets to none before defeating Russia in five sets.
 
Erik Shoji led the U.S. with nine digs.
 
Christenson had two kills and five digs in the match.
