Jen Kessy and April Ross to face Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings in 2012 Summer Olympics beach volleyball finals
Kessy and Ross, playing in their first Olympics, will be facing none other than fellow U.S. beach volleyball team Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings, the two-time defending gold medalists. It will be just the second time the two teams have faced off and the first time, at an AVP tournament in 2008, Kessy/Ross upset May/Walsh.
Should be a terrific match. May/Walsh are coming off a close victory over China's Xue Chen and Zhang Xi (22-20, 22-20) and Kessy/Ross are coming off handing the Brazilian team their first ever set losses at this Olympic games.
The two U.S. women's volleyball teams face off Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT.
