You probably thought volleyball players couldn't play shots from outside the court of play. Well, Team USA's Matt Anderson sure tried to show you at the Olympics in preliminary play against Serbia!

Believe it or not, after running behind the bench and around some cameras, Anderson did not return that brilliantly considered shot to the court.

On the other hand, Anderson's listed at 6'8" and 190 pounds, so it's possible that his very existence defies everything we know as a species and that he was put on Earth to attempt the impossible.
