The 2012 Olympics have gone better than expected for the USA women's beach volleyball team as they remained a perfect 6-0 in match play. Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor were once again on top of their game when they needed it most as they defeated the Czech Republic 21-14, 21-19 in day three action.
The win was the 16th consecutive Olympic victory for the duo, but it wasn't easy.
The Czech Republic almost pulled off the upset as they battled hard all night, and were up 18-15 in the second game before USA stormed back and tied the game at 18 apiece, eventually winning the match.
When the match was over, team USA celebrated the big win and Misty May-Treanor's 35th birthday. Not a bad night for the girls!
"We're celebrating on California time,'' Walsh Jennings said early Tuesday morning in London.
