USA Beach Volleyball: The City of Los Angeles Sends Five to London

In a semi-surprising turn of events, the sunny and sandy beaches of the Los Angeles area are only sending five beach volleyball players to the Olympics.

Misty May-Treanor, Jen Kessy, April Ross, Sean Rosenthal and Todd Rogers will all represent the United States in the 2012 Olympics. The five Olympians have a wide range of experience, with Kessy and Ross getting their feet wet and May-Treanor participating in her fourth Olympic Games.

Both May-Treanor and Rogers won gold medals in the 2008 Olympics. May-Treanor also won a gold medal in 2004. Kessy and Ross paired together to recently claim third place at the World Championships in Rome.
