Golden Girls

As the saying goes, “when it rains, it pours.”

And in Beijing the rain turns out golden for the dynamic duo of Misty May- Treanor and Kerri Walsh as they notched their 108th consecutive victory and once again bagged their second consecutive Olympics gold medal in beach volleyball against the game Tian Jia and Wang Jie of host China.

They played and engaged the Chinese duo fueled by cheers from the home crowd into a hard- fought and tactical dogfight in the rain.

In the end the Americans’ superior tactics and vast experience proved to be the catalyst as they beat the host with identical scores of 21- 18, two sets to none.
