Snowboarders now have a new way to click with their ski friends.The typical riders hassle of bending down -- or sitting down in the snow -- to buckle boots into the bindings while skiers in their group wait could be a thing of the past.A new technology that enables the boot to snap onto the board similar to a ski binding has the potential to inject fresh life into a sport that has been dealing with slowing growth for the last decade or so.After more than four years of research and more than a decade of trying to find the answer to a question that has long perplexed snowboarders and manufacturers alike, Burton Snowboards is releasing its new Step-On binding -- touting it as a time-saver that wont negatively impact performance. The binding goes on sale next fall and will run between $250 and $400.We asked the question, `What if? said Chris Cunningham, Burtons vice president of product. What if I could save 30 seconds per run?Multiplied by the 10 to 15 runs an average rider logs on any given day, a 30-second difference could mean an extra trip down the mountain per day. Over years, that number could add up into the hundreds. Meanwhile, the binding means less delay, less getting hands wet while fiddling with straps and buckles, less time the skiers in the group have to wait around for their snowboard buddies to prepare their equipment after they get off the lift.Every time my dad goes to strap in at the top of the mountain, he lets out a huge `Aaarrrrrrrgghhh, when hes got to bend over to strap in, said Danny Davis, the two-time Winter X Games champion who rides on a Burton board. Making snowboarding something thats easier to get into, thats a good thing.An improvement in ski technology, combined with unpredictable weather, the Great Recession and increased pricing for lift tickets, helped play into flat numbers for snowboarding over the past decade-plus. SnowSports Industries America reports microscopic growth (from 7.57 million to 7.602 million) in the number of snowboard participants between 2011-12 and last winter.Among Burtons attempts to bring more people to the sport was the invention of the Riglet -- a reel-like device that makes it easier for parents to tow young kids around on the snowboard.The industry has been experimenting with step-in bindings for more than a decade, but the first mass attempt to bring them to market petered out because the performance of the boots was considered subpar.In this latest attempt, 3D printing technology made it possible for developers at Burton to crank out and refine hundreds of prototypes in a very short time. The project began in a secret, walled-off room on the Burton campus where people walked by and said, `Whats up with that wall? Cunningham said.Within months, they were testing prototypes. In four years, they came up with something thats ready for the market.Kimmy Fasani, a professional rider for Burton, said the boot and binding gave her the same level of confidence she had with her old set-up.I think sitting down (to get into the bindings) has always been kind of a nuisance for snowboarders, Fasani said. Theres an efficiency there. Now, if you have friends who are skiers, youre not going to be the guy whos slowing the crowd down.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- With Neymar in a courtside seat cheering his countrymen, Wallace pumped his arms and let out screams from deep in his lungs as Brazil fed off the energy in raucous Maracanazinho arena.Over and over again he celebrated each point that got his team closer to an Olympic title.Brazils determined mens volleyball team gave the hosts another sensational gold right next door to where Neymar and Co. did it less than 24 hours earlier in a thrilling penalty shootout against 2014 World Cup champion Germany.Brazil beat mighty Italy 25-22, 28-26, 26-24 on Sunday for the home teams first Olympic title in 12 years since a championship at Athens in 2004.As the delirious home crowd hung out to watch the medal ceremony, fans danced in the stands and chanted Campeao! Campeao! -- or, Champion, Champion!Wallace wiped his still-sweaty brow as the Brazilian flag was raised and the national anthem began. He started singing. They all did, with tears of joy, right along with every last Brazilian in the arena.Its really special, especially winning in our own home it leaves a really good taste, Brazils William said. Its a whole life of work and this is our result. We are very happy for this.At the very end, Sergio grabbed the microphone and expressed his gratitude to thousands inside and millions elsewhere, thanking the adoring crowd and telling all the fans how much he cherishes wearing Brazils yellow shirt on his chest.Then, he and the champion Brazilians took a victory lap and celebrated some more. They capped the final day of the Rio de Janeiro Games with a memorable, emphatic volleyball victory.That heartbreaking silver from London four years ago, forget about it.

Now, the Italians are left to try again for their first volleyball gold in Tokyo 2020.

Even sweeter to reach the gold-medal match by knocking down the Russia team that beat them for gold in London.The stunned Italians -- in tears as they watched the wild celebration unfold -- had outlasted the United States in a five-set semifinal that went down as an instant Olympic classic, then the Americans bounced back to earn the bronze medal earlier Sunday by rallying from two sets down to defeat Russia in five.Brazils fans cheered Italy, too, yelling I-tal-ia! as the team accepted silver. Ivan Zaytsev clapped his hands in the air in appreciation of the gesture.I smiled when I heard the anthem of Brazil before the match, Italys Matteo Piano said. It was something special, all of Maracanazinho singing and screaming.Moments before stepping up to accept their gold medals, Brazils players bounced up and down, some signaling hearts to the stands with their fingers, others waving to every section in the place as U.S. captain and bronze medalist David Lee used his phone a few feet away to capture the incredible spectacle.The Brazilians then grabbed Sergio and tossed him in the air, time and time again. The fitting gesture for a national team treasure and beloved libero in what likely was his last Olympics.What a way to go out. ' ' '
