BIG STAR, BIG FAN
Two-time gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings is one of the biggest stars in beach volleyball, and her success in the sand hasn't done much to take the fan out of her.
When it comes to other big names at the games, Walsh Jennings reacts just like anyone else who meets a sporting hero face to face.
She has run into swimmer Michael Phelps and NBA players Tony Parker and Ronny Turiaf since arriving in London on Monday.
"I still feel like a giddy little girl," Walsh Jennings says. "The first couple of days are kind of like the first days of high school."
