Misty MAY-TREANOR biography

The daughter of Butch May, a 1968 volleyball Olympian, Misty May competed in three Olympics in beach volleyball, winning gold medals in 2004 and 2008, while partnering Kerri Walsh. May has also won more professional beach tournaments than any female player, with 107 through 2010. May played collegiate volleyball (indoor) at Cal State Long Beach, earning first-team All-American honors, and being named NCAA Player of the Year in 1998. After college she immediately began playing beach volleyball, partnering Holly McPeak at the 2000 Olympic Games, placing fifth. In 2001, May teamed up with Walsh and they formed the most dominant female beach volleyball pair ever, winning two gold medals and 112 consecutive matches, a streak broken shortly after the 2008 Olympics. After some time off after 2008, the two returned to win their third consecutive gold medal at London in 2012, after which May retired from competition. Misty May is married to major league baseball player Matt Treanor.
