American Kelly Claes, Olympic hopeful in the sport of beach volleyball, guests on Episode 120 of Keep the Flame Alive Podcast.

Episode 120: Olympic Hopeful Kelly Claes on Beach Volleyball

Release Date: January 16, 2020

We’re hitting the beach with Olympic hopeful beach volleyball athlete Kelly Claes. Kelly and her partner Sarah Sponcil are currently ranked 8th in the world….although that might not be enough to get them to Tokyo. Kelly tells us all about the sport and how they’re dealing with the pressure of the upcoming Games. Plus, the Tokyo 2020 ticket design has been released, and we talk about who might be throwing in bids for the 2030 and 2032 Olympics.

Follow Kelly on Twitter and Insta (be sure to check out her videos!!) and visit her website.

A little housekeeping from the show: This past weekend, Jill saw Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremonies performers Human Nature in Las Vegas (note: that link conveniently starts on a John Coates shot). Also, congrats to Team Olympic Fever member Dr. Micheal Warren for his first journal publication!
