sexy hot beach volleyball photos summer olympics 2012

The women’s beach volleyball competition at the 2012 Summer Olympics wrapped up yesterday with Team USA defeating Team USA for the gold medal—Misty May-Treanor and Kerry Walsh Jennings beat April Ross and Jennifer Kessey, earning their third consecutive gold medal.

Of course, now that beach volleyball is all done, there’s pretty much no reason to go on living, let alone watching the Olympics. But don’t fret. In order to help ease you back into your regular, Olympic beach volleyball-less existence, we’ve put together an epic list of the photographic highlights from this year’s competition.

So go grab a snack, cue up Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You,” and get ready to see some rad photos.

You’re welcome.
