Olympics: Kerri Walsh Jennings referenced Tupac before Bronze medal win
Every athlete has his or her own method to prepare for competition. It appears that Kerri Walsh Jennings goes with Makaveli.
Ahead of Wednesday’s Bronze medal beach volleyball victory in the 2016 Olympic Games, Jennings posted an Instagram featuring a song by Tupac Shakur. In the wake of a shocking semifinal round upset, it would seem her go-to cut to amp up her and teammate April Ross was 2Pac’s “Still Ballin’.”
“‘… Till the day I die.’ #RemainTrue Let’s GO @aprilrossbeach,” Jennings wrote. “Let’s do what we came here for #PlayfulDomination.”
Jennings previously posted screenshots of Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love,” “Genghis Khan” by Miike Snow, and various quotes during the Rio Games.
Jennings and Ross rallied to best Brazil in the Bronze medal match, two sets to one. The duo was upended by Brazil in the semifinals, giving Jennings her first-ever Olympics loss.
