AVPers in Norway

Here are some of the results so far for the Olympic qualification race for the two spots for our USA squads:

Jen Boss/April Ross won over the Chinese team, Tian/Wang, for the gold medal. They won 21-14 and 21-12. Congrats to Boss/Ross on their first win together!!

Misty/Kerri won the bronze medal match over a German team.

here's info from

Bronze MedalMatch 71: Misty May-Treanor / Kerri Walsh United States (1) def. Sara Goller / Laura Ludwig Germany (17, Q6) 21-15, 21-13 (0:36)
Gold Medal

EY/Nicole place 9th.

Rach/Tyra place a disappointing 41st place and Holly/Logan lose out because of the CQ (country quota).

Furby/Scott lose out to CQ.

Ring/Wong place 33rd.

In 17th place, you'll find Jake/Sean and Lambo/Stein.

Phil/Todd are still in it! Here's to hoping they take home a medal this weekend in Norway!!

AVP players in Paris

With the Olympic Games in Beijing just around the corner, there are three women's teams (with Boss/Ross and McPeak/Tom failing to make into the main draw competition) and three men's teams (with Furby/Scott placing 17th and Ring/Wong missing out on the action because of the country quota) vying for the FIVB points.

As for the women, Misty/Kerri, Rach/Tyra and EY/Nicole are undefeated so far in competition. Looks like Tyra will earn herself a career high finish of 9th place or better this weekend on the FIVB Tour. I expect Misty/Kerri to make the finals against a Brazilian team or Chinese team if it's not an All-American final! ;)

As for the men, Lambo/Stein are playing a Chinese team as we speak. The score is 19-16. Phil/Todd and Jake/Rosie (they're the #1 seeded team this weekend) have yet to play.

I also hope our men will make the finals.

Good luck to all of the USA teams!

AVP Favorites.....

My favorite AVP..........

1) stop has been Huntington Beach so far. I'd like to be able to attend the Long Beach and Manhattan events later this summer. POssibly Vega$ again too.

2) newest sponsor is....Solar Safe. I love this product! I've been telling a LOT of my friends, who are healthcare professionals and educators.

3) current AVP sponsor....can't be narrowed down. But, I do like the Hilton Garden Inn because they let me sit in the VIP section when I wanted to just watch one of Rach's matches. So, kudos to them!

4) player blogs or web sites or Yahoo! groups to visit are: the blog site for Todd Rogers, the Lindquists web site, Holly McPeak's web site, the May-niacs (, Rach's fan page on Yahoo! (, Ian Clark's web site ( ), and Beach Volleyball Database (

**please note the list isn't in any particular order.

5) magazine is still DiG magazine. The issues just keep getting better and better! ;)

Happy 32nd birthday to Rachel Wacholder..

Today is Rachel's 32nd birthday!

Congrats on becoming the AVP's second-ranked women's team behind Misty/Kerri. Here's to more success for you and partner, Tyra Turner.

I hope Rach will be in the finals this weekend with Tyra.

anywho, surf on over to or to look at some great photos of Rachel.
