Josh Binstock teamed up with partner Martin Reader in his first appearance at an Olympic Games in the sport of Beach Volleyball. The duo finished in 17th place overall in London.
Binstock and Reader defeated Canadians Ben Saxton and Christian Redmann in a one-game qualifying match in Toronto to earn the right to represent Canada in London.
A former Junior National indoor team member, Binstock began competing competitively on the beach circuit during the offseason at the University of Toronto. The 2004 CIS 1st Team All-Canadian has since won numerous Beach Volleyball medals including silver at the 2001 Canada Games, three 24U national championships and two senior national championships (2008, 2009) with partner Matt Zbyszewski.
His best Fédération Internationale de Volleyball World Tour result was a ninth place finish in 2012 with Reader.
