BEIJING — Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser have completed the American sweep of the beach volleyball gold medals, beating Brazil in three sets.

A day after Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor weathered a driving rainstorm to win their second straight gold, the men won their Olympic debuts on Friday in more typical beach weather. Dalhausser and Rogers beat Fabio and Marcio 23-21, 17-21, 15-4.

Earlier Friday, Athens gold medalists Emanuel and Ricardo of Brazil won the bronze, beating Jorge Terceira and Renato Gomes of Georgia 21-15, 21-10.
