LONDON —

Italy won its fourth men's volleyball medal in the last five Olympics by beating Bulgaria for the bronze on Sunday.

The Italians won 25-19, 23-25, 25-22, 25-21, with captain Cristian Savani scoring a game-high 23 points.

Bulgaria had been looking for its first men's volleyball medal since winning silver at the 1980 Moscow Games despite team turmoil before the start of the London Olympics when the coach and several players quit the team.
