My guest today is Beach Volleyball Olympian April Ross. You know how much fun this conversation was for me.
April shares her journey from winning in high school, multiple national championships with USC and now 3 Olympic medals as a professional. Her ability to set goals and win is stunning, but there is so much more.
April understands what works for her, but simultaneously keeps a growth mindset and stays open to learning. She also shared what it was like as a 19 year old college sophomore athlete to lose her mom to breast cancer.
We discussed the process of re-examining everything even though something worked for a while. Covid has been difficult on so many levels for so many people, but April and her partner shared how that extra year of training and time was instrumental in helping them win the gold.
She is experienced, strong, and isn’t looking to retire. April discusses her excitement about what other things there are for her to learn and experience as an athlete and a person. This is a woman who has such an interesting balance of relaxed,calm, and “chill” with relentless intensity and focus. There is a lot to learn from April Ross
Breast Cancer awareness.
