Welcome back to the first post-break edition of Caption This, complete with non-winners. That's Bulgaria's Evgeni Ivanolv (with his face obscured by the ball) going up against Japan's Nobuharu Saito in Olympic volleyball action on Tuesday.

Feel free to supply a suggested caption in the comments section. I will post some selections later tonight.

(UPDATED)

Here are a Sweet 16 of selections:

“Bulgaria's witness protection program leaves a little to be desired.” (Finsterbaby)

“It was later revealed that Ivanolv's scream of pain had actually emanated from a less attractive athlete.” (Mark G)

“Shocking photo purports to illustrate Olympic event lacking any U.S. participants!” (Martel)

“In Bulgaria, ball block you!” (Clef, also gill, Anthony Verna, Midvalley and Finsterbaby on a similar line)
