A native of Santa Clara, California and a Stanford University graduate, Kerri Walsh Jennings is one half of the most decorated duo in volleyball history and widely considered to be one of the greatest ever to play the sport.
After becoming only the second player to ever earn All-American honors in each of her four years playing college volleyball at Stanford, Walsh Jennings made one Olympic appearance on the USA women’s indoor volleyball team in 2000 before pivoting to the beach and teaming up with Misty May-Treanor.
From there, the pair dominated the women’s game by winning the Olympic gold in 2004, 2008, and 2012. They also simultaneously set the record for most consecutive winning matches (112), as well as most consecutive tournament victories (19).
After the retirement of her long-time competitive partner, Walsh Jennings has continued to make waves in the beach volleyball game. She won bronze during Rio’s 2016 Olympics and is competing in various competitions around the globe with the goal of returning to the top of the podium at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
