Three-time Olympic champion Kerri Walsh Jennings dislocated her shoulder mid-match, had it reset, and then along with partner April Ross defeated the reigning women's volleyball world champions, according to NBCSports.com.

The injury, which took place during the quarterfinals of a tournament in Gstaad, Switzerland, didn't prevent Walsh Jennings and Ross from defeating Brazil's Agatha Bednarczuk a​nd Barbara Seixas 21-17, 23-21​.

This was the second dislocation in two months for Walsh Jennings, 36, who re-injured her right shoulder while spiking the ball when she and Ross led 10-4 in the second set. Trainers popped Walsh Jennings' shoulder back in, at which point she returned to finish the match.

Walsh Jennings initially dislocated the shoulder on May 27. She's had four surgeries on her right shoulder over the course of her career.
