Watch as beach volleyballer leaves teammate utterly hanging for a chest bump

Canada’s Ben Saxton and Chaim Schalk are pretty damn good at beach volleyball, but their celebrations need a lot of work it seems.

The duo lost their opening contest two sets to one against Latvia on Sunday, however they roared back into the tournament yesterday shocking hosts Brazil inside the Copacabana Stadium.

Saxton and Schalk managed to dig out an epic 16-14 win to claim the final set and victory, but it was a lighter moment from Sunday night’s loss to Latvia that has captured the intention of the internet.

After winning a point, Schalk went in for a celebratory chest bump with Saxton, but he was left hilariously hanging by his teammate and the moment is even more agonising in slow motion.

At least they have recovered from that failure now and they need beat Cuba tomorrow to have any hope of progressing.

Should they win we hope Saxton will finally give Schalk that chest bump he craves oh so dearly…
