Meet Kerri Walsh, known as Six-feet of Sunshine on the Beach Volleyball court. She’s an Olympic champion and is headed for Beijing. Read her biography and see some photos of this hot volleyball babe and a video below.
Kerri Walsh and tandem Beach Volleyball partner Misty May-Treanor have been undefeated this year. They haven’t lost a match since August 19, 2007. They continued their winning streak this weekend with a victory at the AVP Crocs Slam Boulder Open over Kristen Batt and Megan Wallin.
Kerri Lee Walsh was born on August 15, 1978 in Santa Clara, California. She is 29-years-old. She is 6′ 3′ tall. She was raised in Saratoga, California. She undoubtedly inherited her athletic abilities through her athletic parents, Tim and Margie Walsh. She is the second of four children who all grew up playing sports. Her older brother is Marte and her younger sisters are Kelli and KC. Her father played minor league baseball for the Oakland A’s and her mother played professional volleyball in Santa Clara. Her mother was named MVP twice. All of her siblings have played college sports.
Walsh and her long time partner, Misty May-Treanor, have dominated women’s beach volleyball since they began their partnership in 2000. They have finished at the top of the Association of Volleyball Professionals Tour (AVP) each season. The duo brought home the gold medal at the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics and have qualified to compete in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing next month.
Walsh met her husband on the same day that she auditioned to be Misty May-Treanor’s partner. Apparently, the stars were all aligned just perfectly for her that day. She dated men’s beach volleyball player Casey Jennings for four years and they married on December 4, 2005.
