This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features another two-time indoor Olympian in Kelsey Robinson Cook, as well as a celeb appearance by her husband and good friend of the show, Brian Cook, who would have likely been an Olympian in his own right had he stayed healthy. This is such a fun episode, and Robinson Cook delivers, chatting about:

  • How this is the highest level she has ever seen the indoor game since she began playing pro in 2014
  • Her experiences playing for clubs in China, Italy, Puerto Rico, Turkey, and, of course, the USA
  • Winning the 2021 Olympic gold medal in Tokyo, the first ever for the United States women
  • What it’s like being in the USA gym, with 30 women competing for 12 Olympic spots
  • How she has developed into a leadership role with USA Volleyball

And much, much more. Gold mine of a podcast with Kelsey and Brian!
