Holly McPeak has been playing pro beach volleyball since 1987 and full time since 1992. She has 72 career titles, the most of any women in pro beach volleyball history, and along with her partner, Elaine Youngs, won the bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.
Holly McPeak was born May 15, 1969 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California and is an American beach volleyball player.
McPeak has 72 career beach volleyball titles and $1.4 million USD in career earnings, which are third (behind Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh) and second (behind May-Treanor) respectively of any woman in the history of professional beach volleyball. She also won a bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics with partner Elaine Youngs. McPeak, at 5 feet 7 inches, is considered very short for beach volleyball, which makes her success all the more remarkable.
At the 1996 Summer Olympics, McPeak partnered with Nancy Reno and did not win a medal despite high expectations. Team conflict is often cited as a cause of this, and McPeak's breast enlargement surgery has been cited as a potential cause of this conflict.
At the 2000 Summer Olympics, McPeak partnered with Misty May-Treanor and finished in fifth place.
During the 2005 season, McPeak teamed up with Jennifer Kessy (now known as Jennifer Boss) and with Nicole Branagh for the 2006 season. After Branagh left to partner with Elaine Youngs, McPeak partnered with indoor volleyball player Logan Tom for the 2007 AVP season. She then partnered with Angie Akers.
McPeak was planning to retire after the 2008 AVP season, but decided to continue for the 2009 season. After three-straight ninth-place finishes in her first three AVP events of the season, she retired for good on May 6, 2009.
McPeak is married to former AVP commissioner Leonard Armato.
