Volleyball Champ Kerri Walsh Seeks Dodgeball Glory

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Athlete Kerri Walsh has a Olympic gold medal for volleyball and now she’s trying to dig up some dodgeball glory.

Walsh is one the celebrity participants on the Game Show Network’s Extreme Dodgeball along with Hal Sparks, Mario Lopez, snowboarder Mia St. John and Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter.

She captains the Detroit Spoilers and admits the competition is a lot stiffer than she originally anticipated. In her words, “Those boys throw hard; that ball is heavy. My shoulder didn’t feel the same for two weeks after.”

Unfortunately, Walsh’s volleyball success hasn’t translated to dodgeball yet. As she puts it, “We went ‘oh-fer’ the whole tournament.”

Extreme Dodgeball airs Tuesdays on GSN.
