Kerri Walsh, a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist in beach volleyball, joined the Sports Insider to talk about her training with partner Misty May-Treanor, her charities, and her kids.
Brian and Kerri talked in depth on her training for this upcoming Olympics. Kerri explains how she and her partner Misty May-Treanor practice together four times a week along with weight training and physical therapy. Kerri also talks about her two sons who are both under the age of three and how that has changed her life and training regiment.
At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Walsh and Misty May-Treanor won the gold medal in women's beach volleyball without losing a single game. In 2008 Walsh and May-Treanor repeated as Olympic gold medalists, defeating the first-seeded Chinese team in the final match. May-Treanor and Walsh did not lose a single set in either of the past two Olympics. Their final match extended their unbeaten streak to 108 matches. They are the only beach volleyball team to successfully defend their Olympic title. Finally, in April 2011, Walsh announced that she will again be partnering up with May-Treanor to compete in 2012 Olympics in London.
Kerri also talks about her charities that she works with and how others can get involved at her website, www.kerriwalsh.com
