Retired American pro beach volleyball player, Misty May-Treanor, is quite the achiever when it comes to her sport. She won three Olympic gold medals throughout her career. The first in 2004 Athens, the second in 2008 Beijing, and the third and last in 2012 London. She retired from competitive play in mid-2012 and was inducted into the Volleyball Hall of Fame in 2016.
Misty May-Treanor is objectively the most successful female volleyball player of all time, with 112 individual championship wins, both locally and internationally. She was appointed by former US President Donald Trump as the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition, where she also served as co-chair. She earned over $2 million throughout her career and appeared on numerous TV shows, including “Dancing with the Stars,” “CSI: Miami” and even “Hell’s Kitchen.”
This American swimmer has been a prodigy of the sport from the time she was just a teenager. By age 15, she was already an Olympic gold medalist after winning the women’s 800-meter freestyle at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. This just made her appetite for success grow even more, and she has definitely delivered since.
When you look at her physique and hear just how hard she trains, it’s immediately clear that short of owning gills and fins, Katie Ledecky was born for swimming. She has accumulated dozens of medals throughout her career and broke not one or two but 14 different world records. It looks like nothing is going to stop this young woman from swimming towards her goals.
You'd be quite right to think that Paige Spiranac should be a model. This stunning athlete and social media personality has achieved many things throughout her career. She has a social media following of over 3 million followers on Instagram and has been a professional golfer since 2015. Despite not being the world's best golfer, she seems to have found the perfect balance between golfing and modeling on her Instagram page.
Spiranac aspires to one day compete in the Olympics, although it seems that her record isn't quite there yet. Still, she's extremely successful in her unique niche and will likely continue to become vastly more popular and accomplished as her career matures.
