The Irish Americans
Kerri Lee Walsh and partner Misty May-Treanor have been called the greatest beach volleyball team of all time and they have certainly lived up to their title, winning gold medals in both the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Walsh and May-Treanor were undefeated in every set played at both the 2004 and 2008 Olympics. Irish-American Walsh plays professionally on the U.S. AVP Tour and internationally on the FIVB World Tour.
The daughter of a minor league baseball player and a college volleyball MVP, Walsh is a California native and currently resides in Hermosa Beach with her husband. The two are expecting their first child.
