Type :  

  Summary  

Misty Erie May-Treanor is an American professional volleyball player. She has won more tournaments than any other female player with 107 career wins.

May-Treanor and teammate Kerri Walsh were the gold medalists in beach volleyball at both the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics. They have been called "the greatest beach volleyball team of all time".

  Biography  

 early life
Misty E. May was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1977. She grew up playing beach volleyball at the Santa Monica Pier with her parents, Butch and Barbara. At age eight, she played her first volleyball tournament with her father, and played other sports like soccer and tennis, as well as participating in dance. She attended primary school at Brightwood Elementary School in Monterey Park. She also suffered from an eating disorder in her younger years.

 High School
May-Treanor spent her high school years in Costa Mesa, California. She attended Newport Harbor High School from 1991 through 1995. There, she helped her team win two state championships in indoor volleyball in 1992 and 1994.

In 1993, May-Treanor was named the Division I All-CIF team Player of the Year. In 1994, she was named by USA Today as the best girl's volleyball player in the nation.

 personal life
May-Treanor is the daughter of Bob "Butch" May, a member of the 1968 US volleyball team and prominent beach volleyball player, and Barbara May, a nationally-ranked tennis player who later transitioned to beach volleyball. Barbara died of cancer in 2002. A prominent tattoo on May-Treanor's shoulder, an angel with the initials "B.M.", is a reminder of her mother. She has a tattoo of a flower on her right wrist. She also has a tattoo of a Roman numeral five on her lower back, five being her favorite number. After NBA star Jason Kidd was spotted in the stands at the Olympics supporting the US beach volleyball players, it was alleged that the number five tattoo is a tribute to Kidd, since he wears number 5. May-Treanor wore the number five through much of her volleyball career, though, and says she and Kidd have only met once. She has reported that she has her grandmother's initials on her arm as a tribute to her.

She has two brothers, Brack and Scott, and her first cousin is tennis player Taylor Dent.

In January 2004, she began dating baseball player Matt Treanor currently a catcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the two were engaged in March 2004. They wed in November 2004. May-Treanor has publicly stated that she intends to start a family, but the prospect of her return is unclear. May-Treanor shares a fourth tattoo with her husband that is of an M-squared.
May-Treanor is listed as currently residing in Coral Springs, Florida, though she and her husband also own a home in Long Beach, California. She serves as a Sports Ambassador for and previously served on the Board of Governors.
