Olympic gold medalist Alix Klineman joins Kelley to talk about her journey from indoor volleyball star to beach volleyball champion. An athlete since childhood, Klineman was an All-American indoor player at Stanford and a member of Team USA before she decided to make the life-changing switch to beach. Klineman discusses the freedom that came with failing while transitioning sports and the importance of taking care of your body even when you’re young. She then takes Kelley behind the scenes of her and April Ross’ gold medal run at the Tokyo Olympics, where Klineman confirms that yes, she was nervous.
