Defending Olympic champions Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor of the United States will play for another gold medal after advancing to the beach volleyball championship game with a straight-sets victory over Brazil.

The Americans beat Renata and Talita 21-12, 21-14 for their 107th consecutive victory on Tuesday, clinching at least a silver medal. The United States has now reached the podium in all four Olympic tournaments since beach volleyball was added to the games in 1996.

Walsh and May-Treanor will play the winner of the other semifinal between a pair of Chinese teams: Top-seeded Tian Jia and Wang Jie or Xue Chen and Zhang Xi.
