AVP Crocs Slam McDonalds Chicago Open

Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor are the reigning women's Olympic gold medalists, and many consider them the favorites to repeat.

Elaine Young and Nicole Branagh are battling with Jenn Boss and April Ross for the Americans' second spot in Beijing.

On the men's side, 6-foot-9 Phil Dalhausser ("The Thin Beast") and Todd Rogers have all but locked up an Olympic berth, and the teams of Jake Gibb/Sean Rosenthal and Matt Fuerbringer/Casey Jennings are fighting for the second spot.

The excitement takes place at Oak Street Beach from Friday to Sunday! Chicago has been a consistent stop on the AVP Tour, hosting a tournament almost every year since 1983.
