Congratulations to Misty May-Treanor on winning gold!

Nike Vision athlete Misty May-Treanor took home gold at the FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour A1 Women’s Grand Slam, wearing her Nike Show-X2 sunglasses.

Saturday the USA’s legendary duo, May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, capitalized on the energy of the 8,000 spectators to overcome China’s second-seeded Chen Xue/Xi Zhang, 21-14, 26-24. The dramatic, 37-minute championship match played in the Klagenfurt Stadium was the 11th time in FIVB history that China and the United States played for the women’s gold medal. The USA has captured nine of the 11 matches, the same record May-Treanor/Walsh has over the Xue/Zhang.
