Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor will interview Olympic Legend Kerri Walsh Jennings!

Kerri Walsh Jennings

“Six feet of Sunshine”, Kerri Walsh-Jennings is considered one of the best female athletes ever to play beach volleyball. Since she first starting playing beach in 2001, Walsh and partner Misty May-Treanor have set the standard for what it takes to be the best in the sport, winning an unprecedented three-straight Olympic Gold Medals (2004, 2008, 2012). In 2012, competing together for the final time internationally, Walsh and May-Treanor dropped only one set during the London Olympics on their way to defeating fellow Americans Jennifer Kessy and April Ross in the gold medal match. 

During the course of three Olympic games, that lone set in London is the only one they’ve ever dropped, having previously won 140 straight.  Between 2003 and 2004, the duo put together one of the most impressive winning streaks in professional sports history; winning 89 straight matches on the AVP Tour and the international circuit. In 2007, her 20 wins (domestic and international) tied her with May-Treanor for the most wins in a single season. In 2008, the duo broke their own records by winning 112 matches in a row and 19 consecutive tournaments. 

Walsh is a two-time AVP MVP (2003, 2004) and part of the Tour’s Team of the Year for five straight seasons (2004-08). She has also been named AVP Best Offensive Player in 2003. For the third straight season in 2007, she was chosen at the FIVB’s best hitter, best blocker and sportsperson in addition to collecting the Best Offensive and Most Outstanding Player awards.
