Olympic Beach Volleyball

Yesterday was the greatest day for British Olympians at London 2012. We won an incredible six gold medals and one silver. Unfortunately, I didn’t have tickets to see any of the golds won live, but I did get to share in the atmosphere at the amazing Horse Guards Parade stadium watching the Beach Volleyball.

It was a good evening for Team USA on the sand. The stadium had the atmosphere of a giant beach party as Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor for the US beat Marleen van Iersel and Sanne Keizer¬†for the Netherlands. In the men’s, Jacob Gibb and Sean Rosenthal for the US beat the enormous Konstantin Semenov (all 6’11” of him) and Sergey Prokopiev of Russia in a really thrilling match.

Here is what we saw:
