    There was fierce firepower on both sides of the net. 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. The vibrant Brazilians lost twice in the World Championship Finals up to this year, including 2005 when they ran up against the wall that was May-Treanor and Walsh. They also secured a bronze medal in 2007. But this year, they were in form and a handful for anyone on the Planet to face.

The American pair topped the “home team” on their own turf for the second year in a row, after taking an intense round four showdown that stretched out to three games (16-21, 21-19, 15-11). On the women’s side of the net, Oakley’s Volleyball Star Kerri Walsh and long-time partner in domination Misty May-Treanor appeared together as a pair professionally since 2008 – when both Olympic Gold Medalists took breaks from their careers to start families. Considering the amount of time passed since playing together, Brasilia was more than solid as they blasted their way to finals to challenge fellow Oakley athletes and Brazilians Juliana Felisberta Silva and ...
