LONDON (AP) - Two-time gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings earned their 16th consecutive Olympic victory Monday night, beating the Czech Republic in straight sets to improve to 2-0 in beach volleyball pool play in London.
The Americans, who have never lost a set in three Olympics, fell behind 18-15 in the second before tying it 18-all. The Czechs again took the lead but May-Treanor hit one off the heel of her palm into the far corner, then Marketa Slukova left two short of the net.
It was May-Treanor's 35th birthday when the match started, but because of TV schedules and a long match earlier in the session, it ended shortly after midnight Tuesday.
Americans Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal lost to Poland in pool play earlier Monday night, the first loss for the American men or women in beach volleyball at the London Games.
