At the Olympics today two teams will compete for the gold in women's beach volleyball. Both teams are from the US and both teams train here in Southern California. Two of the four women competing even went to the same high school in Newport Beach, Calif. Olympic rivals Misty May-Treanor and April Ross both attended Newport Harbor High School.

Dan Glenn was coached both women and he joins the show to discuss his favorite Olympians.
