USA Women's Beach Volleyball Team Jobbed on a Successful Challenge Reversal!

The team of Claes/Sponcil were down 12-11 to the Canadian team in the 3rd set when a challenge was made by the USA team on a ball ruled long by the back judge. The challenge was deemed successful but the Canadian team in essence, challenged the challenge leading to the original challenge ruling to be overturned! Never heard of this occurring before (although this would have been a nice result in a certain college football playoff game a couple years ago!) Regardless, the rattled USA team couldn't get back on track and lost the final set 15-12 thus losing the match and ultimately leading to their elimination from contention! Hope there is a protest filed, if that is even an option.
