Misty May-Treanor wants DWTS spot
LOS ANGELES -- Two-time Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor has already secured a spot in the London Games. Now she hopes to take care of some unfinished business.
May-Treanor wants a spot on "Dancing with the Stars," the TV show she left in 2008 after tearing her Achilles tendon in rehearsals. Since then, she has been trying to get another chance. The show says its next season will include all-stars from previous editions.
May-Treanor asked fans on her Facebook page to vote for her to return. She notes that she was never voted off and says, "I would love to finish what I wasn't able to when I was on the show the last time."
May-Treanor will compete in London with Kerri Walsh, her partner from the Athens and Beijing Games.
