3-time gold medalist Misty May-Treanor heads to Olympics for NBCUniversal beach volleyball coverage

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Three-time Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor is heading back to the Summer Games — as a beach volleyball analyst for NBCUniversal.

“The beach volleyball venue is one of the most exciting of the Games at the foot of the iconic Eiffel Tower,” NBC Olympics Production vice president Rebecca Chatman said. “It’s a great example of how these Games are different and how the organizers are using the City of Light as one of the characters of the Games.”

May-Treanor will work on beach volleyball coverage along with past Olympians Chris Marlowe, Dain Blanton and Kevin Wong. Marlowe, who will do Olympic play-by-play for the ninth time, won a gold medal with the 1984 U.S. indoor volleyball team; Wong won a pair of indoor national championships at UCLA and placed fifth in beach volleyball at the 2000 Games; Blanton won beach gold in Sydney.

May-Treanor won beach volleyball gold medals with Kerri Walsh Jennings in 2004, 2008 and 2012. Walsh Jennings will be in Paris for Yahoo Sports.
