    Oakley’s Kerri Walsh is no stranger to Gold Medals. But the hardware-loaded Oakley star had yet to win one…as a mom, that is. Lo and behold, the beach bomber (and her partner Nicole Branagh) crushed her way to victory this past weekend at the Phuket Thailand Open – topping the Italian duo of Marta Menegatti and Valeria Rosso 21-23, 21-14, 15-11. Kerri hadn’t played in a title match since 2008.
