When Kerri Walsh Jennings was spiking and diving her way to a record third gold medal at London 2012, she had her longtime teammate, Misty May-Treanor, by her side.
Little did they know: there was a third teammate hustling around the sand at London’s Horse Guard Parade.
In September, Walsh Jennings, 34, told Matt Lauer in a “Today Show” interview that she was pregnant with her third child, Scout, while defending her gold in London. After giving birth in April, Walsh Jennings already has her finely toned beach body back on the sand and claims she’s in top form.
