This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features recent USA Volleyball GOLD MEDALISTS Corinne Quiggle and Allie Wheeler, who took home the gold at the Bulgaria one-star. After winning there -- coming out of the qualifier to do so! -- they went to Sochi, where they nearly made it through a brutal country quota against Sarah Schermerhorn and Aurora Davis and Kerri Walsh Jennings and Brooke Sweat.

On this episode, we discuss:

- Corinne Quiggle's wild travels, in which she almost had to drop out of the event

- The difference between competing in practice and competing in an FIVB event

- How Quiggle and Wheeler overcame the nerves of their first international tournament to win gold

- How their partnership formed, and the progress they've made as a team

- What's next on the schedule, and the big goal up ahead

And much, much more.
