Kerri Walsh Jennings to return at World Series of Beach Volleyball in August
Three-time Olympic champion Kerri Walsh Jennings plans to return from a second dislocated shoulder injury this season at the World Series of Beach Volleyball in Long Beach, Calif., in three weeks.
Walsh Jennings, a 36-year-old mother of three, last played July 10, dislocating a right shoulder in a match for the second time in two months. She said on July 14 that season-ending surgery was possible.
Walsh Jennings’ future plans will be evaluated after the World Series of Beach Volleyball, her agent said Monday.
She previously dislocated the same shoulder May 27 and sat out one month.
Walsh Jennings, who has had four previous right shoulder surgeries, will look to qualify for her fifth Olympics overall with her new partner, London 2012 silver medalist April Ross.
Walsh Jennings and Ross won the World Series of Beach Volleyball last season.
