Kelly Murphy is a 26-year-old U.S. Olympic volleyball player. The Wilmington, Illinois native played her college ball at the University of Florida, where she was named a three-time AVCA All-American. After graduating with a degree in elementary education, Kelly turned her focus to dominating on the international circuit.
Kelly joined the national team in 2013, and her impact was felt immediately, as she lead the team in scoring in both 2013 and 2014. She has helped the U.S. bring home six medals, including gold at the 2014 FIVB World Championship.
The 6’2″ opposite is competing in her first Olympics, and things have been going swimmingly for her and the U.S. They are currently in first place in Pool B with a 3-0 record after victories over Puerto Rico, the Netherlands, and Serbia. Their next match will take place on Friday, August 12 at 2:00 p.m. against Italy.
