Despite rain in Beijing Thursday that cancelled some events and kept fans soaking wet, Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor of the U.S. beach volleyball team won their second gold medal. 

The pair beat Wang Jie and Tian Jia of China.  This put the Americans' winning streak at 108 matches after winning every set played in Beijing.
