Rome, Italy, June 13 - The defending men’s and women’s champions are in action for the first time on Day 2 of the FIVB Swatch World Championships Rome 2011 powered by smart.

Their fellow Americans Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh begin their campaign for a fourth world title to add to their two Olympic gold medals.
