The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships went down in Rome with the powerful Oakley Brazilian duo of Larissa Franca and Juliana Silva facing off against fellow Olympic Star Kerri Walsh and her partner Misty May-Treanor. And as expected, it was a battle to the end. But the South American pair edged their American counterparts, 21-17, 13-21, 16-14, to claim their first Gold in the ancient city.
