This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter features Phil Dalhausser, one of the greatest – and some would say, THE greatest – American players of all-time. Since he and Todd Rogers won the Olympic gold medal in 2008 in Beijing, Dalhausser has been the most dominant blocker in the United States, and remains that way. We chatted all about Dalhausser’s storied career, as well as:

  • His wild experience in the Tokyo Olympics
  • How drastically the World Tour has changed since he made his debut in 2006
  • The regrets his has on his career as a player, and the untold potential he and Sean Rosenthal could have had together
  • What his future looks like, both as a player and a budding businessman

And so, so, so much more. This is honestly one of the best episodes we’ve ever had on SANDCAST, as Phil completely opens up in a remarkably honest, funny, and reflective two hours.
