To say that Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh were the favorites to win gold in beach volleyball would be an understatement for the ages.

Not only did they look better than ever (in more ways than one), but they never even dropped a set in the entire tournament.

Although the gold medal match against the Chinese looked like a close match the entire time, the duo prevailed in straight sets to win their second straight gold at the games.

I thought NBC did a great job of getting the Olympic committee to get their matches live in prime time in the U.S.

What else is there to say about their dominance? Will they return? It’s only speculation at this point but the question is can two players in their mid-30’s really compete in London in 2012?
