More than two dozen reporters were crowded around the two stars when the staged floor buckled. Several sections of the floor started to come apart on the media side of the zone, sending reporters scrambling for more stable footing.
No one was hurt, and the floor underneath May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings remained stable.
Officials ended the interviews and moved everyone to a press conference room where the questions and answers continued.

Winning a third straight gold medal in beach volleyball touched off a wild celebration for Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor. The queens of beach hugged and laughed with each other before stepping to the top of the podium to collect their medals.
May-Treanor even got to do some dancing on the big stage after missing out on Dancing With the Stars because of a torn Achilles tendon. She busted out a funky "Running Man" dance all the way across the court as the crowd erupted.
The waterworks are flowing for both of them and the crowd is loving every minute of it.
