The upcoming women’s beach Olympic tournament looks as if it could be one of the best ever. Check out our Tokyo Games preview featuring Olympic medalists Holly McPeak and Dain Blanton. They’ll give you their insiders' take on the upcoming action, which begins July 24 Tokyo time (July 23 here in the States).
Holly and Dain offer their perspectives on:
- The outlook for our two U.S. teams: April Ross/Alix Klineman and Kelly Claes/Sarah Sponcil.
- Teams that are hot entering the tournament. (Hint: they like April and Alix, but watch out for Brazil’s Agatha and Duda.)
- Who they view as the top defenders and blockers in the field.
- Why wind, humidity and the absence of fans could all have a big impact on the outcome.
