USA beach volleyball star Kerri Walsh Jennings is shooting for her fourth-straight Olympic final when she stares down Brazil’s No. 2 pairing of Agatha and Barbara on Monday.

WATCH LIVE: Walsh Jennings-Ross vs. Agatha-Barbara

Walsh Jennings’ partner April Ross is looking forward to the final for another reason; Ross lost to Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor in the 2012 final, and is aching for a gold of her own.

The 11 p.m. EDT match should have another fiery if not star-studded crowd to close out the night in Rio.
