China's Xue, Zhang win bronze in beach volleyball
BEIJING (AP) Xue Chen and Zhang Xi have won China's first medal in beach volleyball, beating Brazilians Talita and Renata for the bronze.
Playing in a steady rain that soaked the players and left them hitting a heavy ball, Xue and Zhang won 21-19, 21-17.
Americans Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor play China's top team Tian Jia and Wang Jie for the gold medal later Thursday.
