LONDON (AP) - Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings beat China on Tuesday night to advance to the beach volleyball gold medal game, where they will play for their third consecutive Olympic title.

The Americans beat Beijing bronze medalists Xue Chen and Zhang Xi 22-20, 22-20 to clinch at least a silver medal. The 2004 and '08 champions will play the winner of the late semifinal between Americans Jennifer Kessy and April Ross and the top-seeded Brazilians, Juliana and Larissa.

It was the 20th straight Olympic victory for May-Treanor and Walsh.

Earlier Tuesday, Brazil's Emanuel and Alison defeated Latvia to advance to the men's gold medal game. They will meet the winner of the last match, between the Netherlands and Germany.
