Lausanne - South Africa has won a place in the London Olympics men's beach volleyball lineup, becoming the first to qualify through winning a Continental Cup competition.

The International Volleyball Federation says South Africa beat Angola, in a "golden set" decider, in the African finals played on Sunday at Flic en Flac, Mauritius.

The South Africa are assured of having one two-man team in the 24-team Olympic tournament. Countries can earn a maximum of two entries.

FIVB rules allow South Africa to select from their best six eligible pairings in world rankings published in June.

Angola and third-placed Nigeria will represent Africa at the World Cup Olympic Qualification tournament scheduled June 27-July 1 at Tortoli, Italy.
