MASON, Ohio -- Olympic beach volleyball stars Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh lost for the first time in more than a year, falling 21-19, 10-21, 25-23 to Elaine Youngs and Nicole Branagh in the AVP Crocs Cup Shootout on Sunday. With the loss, the two-time Olympic champions’ winning streak ended at 112 matches and 19 titles. They last lost on Aug. 19, 2007, also to Branagh and Youngs.

The final took 1 hours, 45 minutes, making it the second longest women’s match in AVP history, missing the record by just a minute.
