経歴

Misty MAY-TREANOR

American beach volleyball star Misty May‐Treanor enjoyed a record‐breaking career, which came to a glorious end with a third consecutive Olympic title at London 2012.

A golden swansong in London

After completing a two‐set victory over fellow USA duo April Ross and Jennifer Kessy in the London 2012 final, Misty May‐Treanor and Kerri Walsh‐Jennings turned and fell into each other’s arms, overcome by the emotion of winning their third Olympic women’s beach volleyball title in a row. In doing so, they put together a 21‐match winning run, losing just a solitary set on the way, to Austria’s Schwaiger sisters in the preliminary round in London.

At the end of it all, May‐Treanor called time on her 13‐year career on the professional world beach volleyball circuit, during which she became one half of the most successful pair the sport has ever seen. “The first two gold medals it was more about volleyball,” she said after stepping down from the podium in London. “The friendship we had was there, but it was volleyball, volleyball, volleyball. This was so much more about the friendship, the togetherness, the journey – and volleyball was just a small part of it.”

Indoor beginnings

The daughter of Butch May, a member of the USA men’s volleyball team at Mexico City 1968, Misty May, as she then was, was introduced to the sport by her parents on the beach in Santa Monica, California. During her childhood years she met some of the greatest names in the sport, among them future triple Olympic champion Karch Kiraly, who sometimes baby‐sat for her.
