経歴

Kerri WALSH JENNINGS

Nicknamed “Six Feet of Sunshine”, Kerri Walsh-Jennings formed part of the greatest pairing beach volleyball has ever seen, teaming up with Misty May-Treanor to win three Olympic gold medals and three world titles and go unbeaten for a remarkable 112 games. On returning to the Olympic stage at Rio 2016 with a new partner, April Ross, she won bronze at the age of 37.

An Olympic debut, indoors

Born in California, Kerri Walsh was an exceptionally talented college volleyball player, helping Stanford University win the 1996 and 1997 NCAA titles and being named MVP in both finals, against Hawai’i and Penn State respectively. She was also only the second college volleyball player in history to feature in the All-American first-team four years in a row.

Walsh was only 22 when she made her Olympic debut, at Sydney 2000, with the USA volleyball team. Beaten in five sets by Russia in the semi-finals, the Americans finished out of the medals after losing to Brazil in the match for third place. Though Walsh had already begun suffering the shoulder problems that would dog her throughout her career, her ailment did lead her to improve her tactical understanding and reading of the game and enhance her sense of positioning.
