Olympic beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings has always had her eye on the prize.
Misty May-Treanor retired after the superstar duo won their third straight Olympic gold medal in 2012, but Kerri is back and looking as dominant as ever with her new partner on the court, April Ross. And if we know the first thing about Kerri, it's that she brings her A-game to everything she does.
She and Ross have already taken down China and Australia's beach volleyball teams and we can't wait until their group match against Switzerland tonight.
In the meantime, here are 10 things to know about Team USA veteran Kerri Walsh Jennings:
1. She Doesn't Miss a Beat
Kerry and Misty dominated the field in 2004, 2008 and 2012, and now she's gunning for her fourth straight gold in Rio with April—whom she famously asked to be her partner right after she and Misty beat April and Jennifer Kessy for the gold in London.
If Walsh Jennings takes home gold from Rio, she will become the fifth woman in history to win a gold medal for the same event at four consecutive Olympic games.
