Josh-BinstockJosh Binstock began competing with Sam Schachter in 2013. Together they’ve stood on the podium at three FIVB World Tour events, including with a gold medal at the 2014 Parana Open. In 2015 they finished second at the Major Series tournament in Porec, Croatia, earning their largest single prize payout. They posted their best result in a Grand Slam event when they finished fourth in Sao Paulo in 2014. Binstock made his Olympic debut at London 2012 alongside Martin Reader. The duo finished in 17th place after posting a 1-2 record in pool play. A former member of the national junior indoor team, Binstock began competing on the beach circuit during his off-season from the University of Toronto. In 2001 he won a silver medal at the Canada Games and he has claimed the national title twice, in 2008 and 2009, both with Matt Zbyszewski.
