MAY-TREANOR SETS RECORD



Hermosa Beach, Calif., May 20, 2007 - Misty May-Treanor became the winningest women’s Beach Volleyball player in recorded history here Sunday by winning her 73rd title at a domestic event with Kerri Walsh.

By capturing her fourth domestic title in five starts this season with Walsh by defeating Tyra Turner and Rachel Wacholder 21-15 and 21-11 in the finals, May-Treanor moved past Holly McPeak with the most women’s professional Beach Volleyball titles. McPeak became the winningest player in June 2004 at a domestic event in Manhattan Beach to better Karolyn Kirby’s total of 67 pro beach titles set in August 1997 at Hermosa Beach.

In her ninth professional season, May-Treanor has won 46 domestic and 27 SWATCH-FIVB World Tour titles. May-Treanor has won 67 of her titles (43 domestic and 24 FIVB) with Walsh and five with McPeak (2, 3). May-Treanor also captured the 2005 domestic Queen of the Beach competition.

May-Treanor and Walsh are the reigning Olympic and SWATCH-FIVB World champions. After winning the 2003 SWATCH-FIVB World Championships in Rio de Janeiro, May-Treanor and Walsh captured the Athens 2004 Olympic gold medal before successfully defending their world title in 2005 at Berlin. May-Treanor and Walsh will seek their third-straight world title in the Swiss Alps when Gstaad hosts the 2007 SWATCH-FIVB World Championships July 24-29.
