The Beauty of Sport, Part Two: Beach volleyball player April Ross

Along with partner Jennifer Kessy (pictured earlier), April Ross is poised to set a new standard in beach volleyball. 

She and Jennifer Kessy first achieved notoriety in 2008, during which they won Phuket Open in Thailand, where April Ross was named the Most Outstanding Player, and finished in the top three at other tournaments.  They played the dynamic duo of beach volleyball, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings, for the Olympic gold medal in London, but settled for silver.  But with May-Treanor leaving the sport, April Ross could be (is?) part of the next great beach volleyball pair.

April Ross also played professional volleyball in Puerto Rico in the mid-2000s.
