Kerri Walsh Jennings Loses First Match in Olympic Career, But Can Still Win Bronze
Kerri Walsh Jennings has sadly faced her first loss during her Olympic career.
The 38-year-old beach volleyball player and her partner April Ross suffered a defeat against Agatha Bednarczuk Rippel and Barbara Seixas De Freitas of Brazil during the semi-finals on Tuesday (August 17) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Kerri won the gold medal in beach volleyball for the last three Olympics alongside partner Misty May-Treanor.
Not only has Kerri never lost an Olympics match in her career, she has only ever lost two sets in the past. She will now compete on Wednesday night against Brazil’s other team for the bronze medal.
