LONDON >> Two-time gold medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor beat the Netherlands in straight sets on Saturday night to advance to the quarterfinals of the Olympic beach volleyball tournament.

The Americans beat Marleen van Iersel and Sanne Keizer 21-13, 21-12.

Walsh Jennings and May-Treanor won gold medals in Athens and Beijing without losing a set. That streak was snapped on Wednesday in the final of the round-robin.

In all, the two-time defending champions have won 18 consecutive Olympic matches.
