Representing the beach — Olympic champions

Walsh and May-Treanor
Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor win gold again. Straight sets. In a rainstorm. Perfectly matched team of athletes. 'Nuff said.

Add Misty: As she did in Athens, May-Treanor marked the victory in Beijing by spreading her mother's ashes on the Olympic sand.
