Six Tokyo Olympic volleyball medals were awarded Saturday, and not necessarily to the countries you might have expected.

In men’s beach, Norway’s Christian Sorum and Anders Mol won gold when they beat ROC’s Viacheslav Krasilnikov and Oleg Stoyanovskiy. Qatar’s Ahmed Tijan and Cherif Samba earlier won bronze after defeating Latvia’s Edgars Tocs and Martins Plavins.

Indoors, France won gold after winning a nail-biting, five-set match over ROC, while Argentina beat Brazil for bronze.
