LONDON (AP) -- Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings won their third consecutive Olympic beach volleyball gold medal, beating April Ross and Jennifer Kessy on Wednesday night in an all-American final.

The Athens, Beijing and now London gold medalists have never lost a match at the Olympics. They won in straight sets, 21-16, 21-16.

It was the Olympic farewell for May-Treanor, who has said she would like to move on.

Kessy and Ross won the silver medal in their Olympic debut.
