Kerri Walsh and April Ross – Road to Rio

Kerri Walsh and April Ross at 2015 FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam

Kerri Walsh and April Ross (United States) are today’s featured team in the Road to Rio series.  As of April 25, 2016, their Olympic ranking is #6 overall and the #1 ranked team to represent the United States. They most recently won gold at the 2016 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Fuzhou Open.

Road to Rio is a photo series of the top beach volleyball teams competing to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

In 2013, the FIVB returned to U.S. soil for the first time in 10 years. I have been fortunate enough to attend the Long Beach, CA event for the past three years and watch the best beach volleyball players in the world.

Images are from the 2012 AVP Championships, 2013 World Series of Beach Volleyball, 2013 AVP Santa Barbara, 2014 FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam and 2015 FIVB Long Beach Grand Slam.
