London 2012 Women's Beach Volleyball: Live Score & Analysis for All-USA Final

Blake Dorfman@blakedorfmanAnalyst IApril 2, 2017

The three-peat is complete.

Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor defeated fellow Americans April Ross and Jen Kessy 21-16, 21-16 this afternoon to win their third consecutive gold medal. The champions controlled the match and pulled away on the final points in each set to get the job done.

This is a feat we may never see again out of a beach volleyball team. They were already the greatest beach team of all time, but they just put a big exclamation point at the end.

Both sets were back-and-forth early on but there is an intimidation factor when you are playing Misty and Kerri. Mentally, they are just too strong to make mistakes that would cost them games. That wasn't true for the contenders, as evidenced by Ross' missed serves in the second set.

A great tournament with a great finish for the United States, to be sure.
