13th Annual Women in Sports Day Pink Zone
Featuring Misty May-Treanor
Misty May-Treanor and her partner Kerri Walsh won goldmedals in
beach volleyball at the summer Olympics of 2004 (in Athens) and
2008 (in Beijing). The dominant beach volleyball team of their era,
May-Treanor and Walsh went a perfect 39-0 during the 2003 season
and won 112 straight matches throughout 2007 and 2008.
Ms. May-Treanor grew up in California and played volleyball at Long
Beach State from 1995 to 1999. In 1998, she honored her school team
by being named the most valuable player of the NCAA tournament.
Subsequently, she switched the next year from the classic
six-person-per-side game to the two-person format of professional
beach volleyball. Pairing with veteran Holly McPeak for two years,
she and Ms. McPeak took fifth place at the Sydney Olympics.
Teaming with Ms. Walsh in 2001, the powerful pair was named AVP
Team of the Year each year from 2003 to 2008. May-Treanor appeared
on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2008,but had to leave the show after
rupturing her Achilles tendon during rehearsals.
