Fresh off of her Olympic gold medal win in beach volleyball, Misty May-Treanor will be trading the sand for a ballroom dance floor. She joins the seventh season of Dancing With The Stars, which will debut on September 22nd. See more photos and video below.
Misty May -Treanor will be paired with Maksim Cherkovskiy, who was Mel B’s partner in season five. Misty joins another Olympic gold medalist contestant – Maurice Greene, a two time gold medalist at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Olympians have done very well on the show, with Apolo Anton Ohno (Season 4) and Kristi Yamaguchi (Season 6) winning the sparkly disco ball trophy.
Upon Misty’s return to the United States from Beijing, she threw out the first pitch to her husband, Marlins catcher Matt Treanor, at the Arizona Diamondbacks/Florida Marlins game in Phoenix on Saturday.
