Todd Knapton, the vice president of business development at Hutcheson Sand & Mixes, holds up the original sample of the perfect beach volleyball sand given to him by 1996 Atlanta Olympic bronze medallist Mark Heese. Hutcheson Sand & Mixes used that sample to develop "V" sand and is the official sand supplier for the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB). Hutcheson Sand & Mixes have supplied beach volleyball sand for every Summer Olympics since the 2000 Sydney Games.
