Larissa Franca is a Brazilian Beach Volleyball player who has become famous for photos of her Olympic gold medal ass. Take a look at the photos below and you’ll see why! There’s also a biography and a video below.
Larissa Franca and her Volley Ball partner, Juliana Da Silva, have been ranked the fourth most successful world touring volley ball team in the world. Juliana had to drop out of the Olympic Games just a week ago due to injury and Larissa has paired up with Ana Paula Conelly. Even though the two are a new pairing, they beat the Russian team yesterday and are 2-0. They will face the Australians on Wednesday who are also 2-0.
So while Larissa’s ass is what everyone has been looking at, she can play volley ball pretty darn well too! There’s a lot more to her than just her fine looking butt.
Larissa França was born on April 14, 1982 in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, Brazil. She is 26-years-old. She started playing volleyball in 1997. She changed over to beach volleyball in 2001 and within six months entered into the ranking system. She teamed up with Ana Richa and the two started winning competitions in 2003. They won the 2003 Pan American Games. They won the bronze medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
França teamed with Juliana Felisberta (now Juliana De Silva) in 2004. They won their first international event as a team in March 2004 at Fortaleza. There they dominated, but did not get past Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh of the United States and another Brazilian team of Andriana Behar and Shelda Bede. At the 2005 FIVB World Tour they were again defeated by May-Treanor and Walsh, but won all their other matches. Still, in 2005 Franca and Felisberta set the FIVB World Tour record for earnings in a single year for both men and women teams. They claimed $409,750 in winnings during 2005 with six gold medals and fourteen times in the top three out of fifteen contests.
Her name is sometimes misspelled as Larissa Fran or Larissa Franco.
