Great Britain's top beach volleyball duo have lost their first round World Tour tie on Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro.
Lucy Johns and Denise Bolton - ranked number 40 in the world - were beaten by an experienced Australian duo.
But the GB team said they would learn from the experience and would try to take something positive from the defeat.
They did, however, feel that wearing winter woollies, gloves and wellingtons hampered their performance against the bronzed, speedo bedecked duo from the Southern hemisphere.
"We may have to rethink our strategy mode of dress-wise", a dehydrated Johns and Bolton later admitted.
