May-Walsh Win World Championships
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Oct. 12, 2003 - America's Misty May and Kerri Walsh left nobody in any doubt as to their standing as the premier team in women's Beach on Sunday morning when they defeated Brazil's Adriana Brandao Behar and Shelda Kelly Bruno in the final of the Beach Volleyball World Championships presented by SWATCH in damp conditions on Copacabana.
The duo claimed their fifth title of the 2003 FIVB World Tour with a 21-19, 21-19 victory over the defending champions to close an outstanding season that has seen them lose just four games. It was their fourth title in succession on the World Tour and compliments their remarkable form on the American domestic circuit during which they went unbeaten on the way to winning eight events.
