Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings: Did They Threepeat?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings took to the beach volleyball court in London today looking to accomplish a truly astounding feat:

Winning three consecutive Gold Medals, all while remaining undefeated overall in Olympic play - and only dropping a single set over the course of three Games.

Did the duo complete this goal? They took on the team of Jennifer Kessy and April Ross in the finals, meaning the podium would be filled with Stars and Stripes regardless of the outcome.

America vs. America

They did it! Treanor and Jennings won the Gold with a 21-15, 21-16 victory that cements their legend as two of the greatest Olympians of all-time.

We could have chanted even if they lost, but it feels especially appropriate with such impressive winners on our side: U-S-A! U-S-A!


Misty and Kerri have proven that they are an unstoppable team; it will be strange if they don’t return to the Olympics. But, with three consecutive gold winning performances, they deserve a break. When I found out a work event for my job at Dish was scheduled at the same time as their final match, I made sure to program my Hopper, so I didn’t miss anything. The Prime Time Anytime function lets me record up to six channels at once and I can watch these recordings commercial free. It was nice coming home and watching Misty and Kerri conclude their games with a gold. They gave this years Olympics all they had, and were victorious.
