LONDON — Dimitriy Muserskiy and Russia managed to stay alive long enough to wear out Brazil.
Muserskiy had 31 points and the Russians won their first men’s volleyball gold in 32 years by rallying for a five-set victory in Sunday’s final at the London Olympics.
Brazil had two chances at match point in the third set, but Russia marched back for a 19-25, 20-25, 29-27, 25-22, 15-9 victory.
