If you're having that twice-in-a-decade feeling, it's probably because the summer Olympics are once again upon us. Here, the rising stars—and downright one-woman constellations—of Team USA.

Name: Jennifer Kessey
Sport: Beach Volleyball
Age: 35
Hometown: San Juan Capistrano, CA

People are talking:
After joining forces with fellow USC alum April Ross in 2007, she won nine career tournaments on the TIVB World Tour and 11 in the U.S. Plus, she's the only player to have ever been named the AVP "best of the beach" two years in a row.

In-flight advice:
"Use earplugs and an eye mask! Most people watch too many movies in the air. I watch one and then off to mediocre sleep I go!"
