MISTY MAY-TREANOR

AGE: 31
OCCUPATION: Beach volleyball player
THE 411: May-Treanor brought home her second career gold medal for team U.S.A. in this year's Beijing Olympics with teammate Kerri Walsh.
PARTNER: Maksim Chmerkovskiy
SECOND-CHANCE AT DANCE: Says May-Treanor: "I took a basic dance class in college, like a Dance 101, where we learned how to line dance, do ballroom and different styles, but because there were so few taller guys in the class, I had to be the guy! So I didn't learn the dances the way I wanted to."
