Standing Volleyball in the Paralympics (1976-2000)

From 1976 to 2000, men’s standing volleyball was also played at the Paralympic Games. The United States competed in standing volleyball during five Games, from 1984 to 2000. The team's highest finish was fourth, which they achieved three times (1992, 1996, 2000).

Three players – Jeff MacMunn, Rob Osbahr and Chris Seilkop – have played both standing and sitting volleyball in the Paralympics.
