Day 12 was another great day for Team USA, particularly in Women's Beach Volleyball as Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings took the gold medal once again, with U.S. duo Jen Kessy and April Ross grabbing the silver and earning the U.S. a second spot on the podium. Tonight on NBC, viewers will see some more Track and Field events, a bit of Women's Diving and Men's Cycling, and the Women's Volleyball Semifinal.
Before we look at tonight, those who didn't get to see Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings beat fellow Americans Kessy and Ross on the sand can watch the highlight video of the match by clicking the image below.
Their medal ceremony was especially heartwarming, as the duo, who played side-by-side in two previous Olympics, held hands on the podium while the national anthem played. You can watch that video here.
What's ahead for Day 13? NBC has volleyball on the line-up for their primetime coverage tonight as the U.S. Women's Volleyball team faces off against South Korea.
