BEIJING (AP) Athens gold medalists Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor cruised to a 2-0 record in the beach volleyball round-robin on Tuesday, dispatching a pair of three-time Olympians from Cuba in straight sets 21-15, 21-16.

With their 102nd consecutive victory, the Americans are virtually assured of reaching the round of 16 that begins on Friday.

The Americans beat Dalixia Fernandez Grasset and Tamara Larrea, who finished ninth in both Athens and Sydney.
