Misty ends the dance

Newport Harbor High product suffers Achillies’ injury and will not compete on “Dancing With the Stars” show.

October 07, 2008

Misty May-Treanor, a former Newport Harbor High standout and an Olympic gold medalist, appeared on the conclusion of Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars” show on crutches and with a cast on her left leg to announce she will no longer be on the popular dancing competition.

May-Treanor, the beach volleyball legend, was practicing the jive on the show’s ballroom set when she ruptured her left Achilles’ tendon.

“I heard a pop,” May-Treanor said. “I was doing the Lindy Hop. I thought I flew out of control and hit the judges’ stairs, or it felt like I got hit in the back with a baseball bat. Then, I just couldn’t put weight on it.”

May-Treanor, who said she had been planning to take time off from volleyball anyway, vowed to return from the injury.
