Regolare Commento Stampare

These were the first Olympic Games that Walsh Jennings teamed up with Ross.

Walsh Jennings and partner April Ross were defeated by Brazilian duo Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas in two sets in the women's beach volleyball semifinal in Rio. Brazil just narrowly edged out Team USA in the women's beach volleyball semifinals in Rio and will be going for the gold against Germany on August 17!

Wednesday loss marked the first Olympic defeat on sand for 38-year-old Walsh Jennings, Time noted.

"There is another beast inside me that's been growing throughout the years of, you know, wanting to be the best in high school, wanting to be the best in college, wanting to be the best in the Olympics, best in the world", Walsh Jennings said. "It didn't make me upset".

"You can't do anything without a pass. That was what kind of set the tone, and we couldn't get our mojo on anything else".

Following Monday's win, Walsh Jennings was asked whether she is thinking about winning gold. I don't even realize what it means yet.

Catch up on the highlights of Tuesday's Day 11 action at the Rio Games.

After receiving his second Olympic gold, Andy Murray slammed sexist BBC reporter during his live interview in Rio Olympics 2016. Instead, one will settle for bronze and the other will get nothing. With Brazil failing to meet expectations in the medal count, and the women's indoor volleyball team and women's soccer teams eliminated from the Olympics on Tuesday - and Brazil's other women's beach team, Larissa and Talita, losing to Germany in an earlier semifinal - these prospects are having an exhilarating impact. Agatha and Barbara entered at the No. 2.

Ross said she didn't notice the Team USA basketball members until the four were put on the big screen and started chanting "U-S-A". "It was just bad execution". "They were just sharper, just sharper on the execution". My weakness was I wasn't passing the ball.

All of golf's top women have come to Rio de Janeiro, unlike the men, but they will have to work hard to produce an Olympic golf tournament matching the men's sensational performance. Our coaches go over it many, many times.

In five previous games at the Olympics, the Americans had lost just one set.

"I am a blessed woman", Walsh Jennings said. With more strength coming from her back muscles, "I can take those swings without being in jeopardy [of injuring myself again]". I don't know if I will.

"... I want to go home with a bronze medal", Walsh Jennings said. Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, DeAndre Jordan and Jimmy Butler were present in the stadium cheering for the two U.S beach volleyball Olympians.
