The Olympics have their fixtures. Michael Phelps. Russian female gymnasts. Jamaican sprinters.
And The Girls. America’s Girls:
I shouldn’t call them The Girls, but they are two of my favorite Olympians. Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings, the beach volleyball athletes. They’ve been at the Olympics since 2004, and these women are winners. 20-0 in their Olympic matches; they’ve only lost one set in the three years. They are athletic. They are mentally tough. They are winners.
Don’t think NBC is missing out on this. The Girls entire matches are televised. Everyone wants to see them.
After defeating the tough Chinese duo of Xue Chen and Zhang Xi in a match today, The Girls go on to the finals versus the other US team. We always root for the US, but man, we admire the sheer Olympics dominance of The Girls. The Girls are the Dream Team of beach volleyball. They’ve been a fixture at the Olympics and we will miss them in 2016.
