Guess What? Walsh’s Secret

Something you didn’t know about beach volleyball pro - Kerri Walsh

Kerri Walsh, massive comeback girl and also recent winner of the Rio Grand Slam has a little not so secret secret.

The famous American beach volleyball star is actually from a family of notable athletes. Her grandfather: Marte Formico, was a star at Santa Clara in football and track. Her mother, Margie, was a two-time MVP in volleyball at Santa Clara and if that isn’t enough, her aunt (mum’s sister), Maureen Formico-Caloiaro, has been inducted into the WCC (West Coast Conference) Hall of Honor.

Maureen Formico-Caloiaro (Walsh’s aunt) was a female basketball player and she will be receiving massive recognition for scoring more points than anyone (male or female) in Pepperdine basketball history.

Walsh gave a massive shout-out to her aunt on her Facebook page:
