As a titan in the sport of beach volleyball, Kerri Walsh Jennings stands tall—literally, as she is listed at 6'3"—as well as figuratively above the competition.
Being a two-time AVP (Association of Volleyball Professionals) MVP and having three gold medals under her belt, there is not much Walsh Jennings has left to prove. However, volleyball runs through the course of her veins and with the AVP Tour back, she will not sit idle as she gears up for another tour and eventual run for gold in the 2016 Olympics in Rio deJaneiro.
“As long as I keep getting better (I’ll keep playing volleyball),” Walsh Jennings said with a sly grin. “For sure I want to go to Rio, and my goal is to qualify and win another gold medal. After that I’ll take care of it (possibly retire from the sport) when it comes."
Walsh Jennings will be looking for a new partner for gold, as her partner in crime Misty May-Treanor has since retired. Walsh Jennings has said an announcement will be made soon on her new partner, but she is more locked into the AVP tour at the moment.
