Misty May-Treanor is a professional beach volleyball player in the United States. She was born on July 30, 1977 in Costa Mesa, CA. She currently resides in Long Beach, CA, a hub for beach volleyball. May graduated from California State University, Long Beach, where she won a national championship, received the Athlete of the Year Award in 1998, and was on the All American First Team for three years. In 2003, May and her new teammate Kerri Walsh were named the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) Team of the Year after having an undefeated season at 39-0, winning eight tournaments.

In the 2000 Summer Olympics, May teamed with Holly McPeak, a highly ranked U.S. beach volleyball player, and they finished in fifth place. In the 2004 Summer Olympics with teammate Kerri Walsh, the number one ranked player, May won Gold after she and Walsh defeated the Brazilian team in the finals. McPeak teamed up with Elaine Youngs and won the bronze medal, after losing to May and Walsh in the semifinal round. May and Walsh did not lose a single game in their seven matches over the 2004 Olympics.

During the offseason, May-Treanor coaches women's volleyball at Irvine Valley Junior College as an assistant coach.

After her volleyball career, May plans to earn a Master's degree, coach volleyball at the junior college level, and spend time with her family and two dogs. In November 2004, she married Matt Treanor, a catcher for the Florida Marlins.
