It’s unlikely the roar of the crowd with spell out the acronym we substitute for the United States of America, but the event is no less dramatic for defending champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings as they go head to head against team USA counterparts Jennifer Kessy and April Ross.
The reigning champs don’t care that they are going to bout with their fellow countrymen. Nothing changes in the eyes of May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings who will show no mercy as they attempt to defend their title.
