This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is a phenomenal one, a wide-ranging conversation with Sean Rosenthal, a two-time Olympian and one of the best to ever play the game. While Rosenthal will not be featured in the Tokyo Olympic Games, his influence on the game is the same as it’s ever been.

On this episode, we chat about:

– What it’s been like for Rosenthal to not go for the Olympic Games this quad, the first time since 2008 he has been out of the running

– His deep relationship with Jake Gibb

– His mindset throughout the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games, and why he never could wish ill-will on his fellow countrymen vying for his spot

– Why he’s been able to remain so popular with the fans after all these years

– His thoughts on the AVP’s three-event season

And much, much more.
