beach volleyball

his huge zoom lens aimed
at women's beach volleyball —

Just for the record, the OED (Olympic English Dictionary?) word of the day is preterhuman.

For example, "Federer hit a preterhuman backhand." Actually, what the commentator said was, "That shot doesn't exist." You'll notice there aren't any OED lads doing TV commentary :)

Thanks, Sadami. Nothing like a sketch with a lot of sand to make some spatter be just the thing! Always glad if I can bring a smile!
