Walsh and Misty May-Treanor proved unstoppable, winning a third consecutive gold medal in London.

The biggest volleyball story at the Games this summer--and one of the biggest Olympic stories overall--was the third consecutive gold medal win by Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor. If anyone doubted it, it is now clear that this duo will go down as one of the best teams of all time, within the sport of volleyball throughout the larger realm of athletics. Throw in an all-American final, with fellow warriors Jen Kessy and April Ross winning silver, and this year's women's beach volleyball competition was made even more historic.

Check out our photos of the thrilling gold medal match, as well as the matches leading up to it.
