Fourth-Place Medal

For their match against Nila and Ingrid from Norway, Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor didn't have to win. They had already qualified for the elimination round, so they could have sat on the court and made sand castles and they would still move on. Of course, this is the most dominant team in the short history of their sport, so they were not going to do that. The pair disposed of their opponents in straight games, though they did run into a little bit of trouble. In the second game, May began to falter on her service return, and Nila and Ingrid came within three points. Walsh took over and became a blocking machine. She had seven blocks for the game, as many as she has had for the whole of the Olympics. The ladies now move onto elimination matches.
