After losing their first ever Olympic set (this is their third Olympics), Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh have defeated Austrian sisters Doris and Stefanie Schwaiger 17-21, 21-8, 15-10.

It was the most adversity the Americans have faced, but their response in the second set was remarkable. They absolutely dominated. That shows a lot of resilience and character, which they will certainly need later in the tournament. 

They end pool play undefeated at 3-0, and their next match will be on Friday at a time TBD.
