Apocolympics Grace



When Kerri Walsh-Jennings and April Ross were shut out of gold medal contention in a loss to Brazil, it was starting to look like this might wind up feeling like that last season of Laverne And Shirley where Shirley split and wasn’t in it at all. But then last night they beat the other Brazilian team to secure Bronze, leaving Kerri with the kindest quote about third place ever: “After losing that last match, it felt vindicating to come back and win. We fought hard for this bronze, and I will cherish it every bit as much as my gold medals.”
