[August 20, 2008]  BEIJING (AP) -- Americans Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser will play for the gold medal in beach volleyball.

The reigning world champions beat Georgia 21-11, 21-13 in the semifinal Wednesday in one of the quickest matches of the Olympics. The U.S. pair will play on Friday against the winner of the other final-four game, an all-Brazil matchup.

Renato Gomes and Jorge Terceiro are native Brazilians who obtained Georgian passports to avoid a quota that limits each country to two entries in the 24-team field.

HardwareAmericans Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor will play in the women's final Thursday against China.
