LONDON (AP) - American beach volleyball star Kerri Walsh Jennings has pinkeye. She says she'll keep competing at the London Olympics.

Walsh Jennings' left eye was red and watery and she was squinting Tuesday at a meet-and-greet arranged by the international governing body of beach volleyball. She is taking antibiotics.

Walsh Jennings and partner Misty May-Treanor are two-time defending Olympic gold medalists. They have opened the London Games with victories in their first two matches in pool play, virtually assuring them a spot in the knockout round.

Casey Jennings, her husband, also has an eye infection. Her sons have avoided it, but Walsh Jennings says she hasn't been able to hold them to avoid passing it along.
