KAZAN, Russia - Canada went a perfect 4-0 in beach volleyball at the 2013 Universiade on Tuesday. 

Grant O’Gorman of Toronto and Samuel Pedlow of Barrie, Ont., won twice and the women’s duos of Melissa Humana-Paredes of Toronto and Taylor Pischke of Winnipeg, and Rachel Cockrell of Winnipeg and Charlotte Sider of Toronto collected one win apiece.

All three Canadian squads are now in the double-elimination playoff round.

On the court both the men’s and women’s teams were idle.
