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.
Stop reading now if you wish to watch that outcome unfold for yourself on NBC tonight…
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!
