- Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings meet fellow Americans Jennifer Kessy and April Ross in pursuit of their third straight gold medal.
- A win tonight would give the pair their 21st consecutive victory in an Olympic match.
- Misty May-Treanor said win or lose, she plans to retire from international competition. #London2012 is her fourth Olympics.
- May-Treanor and Ross both went to Newport Harbor High School. They won a combined five state high school championships.
- Kessy and Ross have watched May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings get far more media attention than they have, or any other team for that matter, and though they can't argue that it is undeserved, they would like to serve notice that there is another women's team worth everyone's notice.
