This week’s episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features Molly Turner, one of the toughest, grittiest, go-get-after-it players on Tour. She had a choice this year: To play the points game and scramble around just to be directly into the main draw, or play the game to win, in which she’d begin in the qualifiers but give herself the highest ceiling possible. The result? A career-high in every single category in 2022. We chatted all about her gold medals, her wins in Seaside and Laguna, and a whole lot more, including:
- This season, in which she traveled more than she ever has, hitting the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour for the first time
- Why she decided to begin competing internationally, and how addicting – and challenging — the road can be
- Why there should be more trash talking in women’s beach volleyball
- How to channel the proper emotions on the beach volleyball court
And, as always, a whole lot more.
Enjoy our chat with Molly Turner!
