Kerry Walsh Jennings, April Ross Cruise To Second Olympic Beach Volleyball Win


The American duo of Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross is the favorite to win the gold medal in women’s beach volleyball at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

These women showed why Monday night.

Walsh Jennings and Ross won in straight sets (21-16, 21-9) over talented Chinese duo Wang Fan and Yue Yuan in pool play, improving their record in Rio to 2-0. The U.S. tandem beat Australia in its first match of the Olympics.

Monday’s victory also extended Walsh Jennings’ incredible streak in Olympic play.

Walsh Jennings and Ross will play their next match against Switzerland on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 8 p.m. ET.
