Beach volleyball star Misty May-Treanor already has two Olympic gold medals, but there is one prize that slipped through her fingers that she still covets — a mirrorball trophy. That's right, May-Treanor wants to return to Dancing with the Stars for the all-stars edition, and she's asking her Facebook fans to vote for her.

May-Treanor, 34, was cast on Dancing with the Stars in the fall of 2008, shortly after the Beijing Olympics, but she had to leave early after suffering an injury to her left Achilles tendon. "I was doing the Lindy Hop," she told USA Today at the time. "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 was originally paired with professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, listed some reasons she wants to return to DWTS. "I would love to finish what I wasn't able to when I was on the show the last time," she wrote. "I wasn't voted off. I would love for my husband to see me dance and compete. I want to perform for my fans!"

May-Treanor, who married Dodgers player Matt Treanor in December 2008, will return to the Olympics with partner Kerri Walsh this summer.
