OLYMPICS: Beach Volleyball Sand Doesn’t Stick

If you’ve been watching the Olympic beach volleyball matches, you may have noticed something interesting – the players never seem to have sand stuck to their ridiculously-toned bodies. They run and jump and dive and never have to wipe off any sand. That seems impossible, considering how if you’ve ever been to a beach, sand sticks to everything.
Well, that’s because Olympic beach volleyball isn’t played on actual beach sand. In fact, the sand they use consists of a specially-made, smoother and rounder grain. It basically just rolls off the body, keeping the players neat and clean.Article Source
