Karch Kiraly, three-time Olympic gold medalist, joins Paper Courts

Karch Kiraly was always going to lay out.

Karch Kiraly, beach volleyball’s greatest player, shows why he’s also the sport’s greatest ambassador, discussing his position with the United States womens national team, re-emphasizing the importance of humility, and having a laugh about how he was introduced into coaching in the first place.

In this first episode with Kiraly, we discuss his journey through beach volleyball, how he initially got into the sport, and his incredible accomplishments through the years, which include an undefeated high school season, multiple national championships at UCLA, and gold medals on the beach and indoors.
