“Before you say no to something, ask yourself, “Am I gonna regret this in 10 years?” Today's guest is Damien Schumann, a Tokyo 2021 Olympian, 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medalist and is one of the best beach volleyball players in Australia!! Damien announced his retirement after the Olympics this year. In this episode, Damien talks about:- - How a chance with a random tourist set the path for him to become one of the best beach volleyball players Australia has ever had - Reflecting on some of the best memories throughout his journey (Winning gold in Commonwealth 2018, Tokyo 2021 Olympics) - That super close first Olympic match against the Beach Volley Vikings! - Why admitting to your partner that you are nervous is a way to deal with anxiety - What his plans are now after retiring and how he deals with not having to play beach volleyball! - How he maintains his top game despite being a smaller player in the game - And how his defense game is so strong - Why he would tell his younger self to serve more aggressively And as usual, much much more! Damien is a super nice and chill guy with lots of beach volleyball wisdom and knowledge to share, and I hope that you’ve learned as much from him as I did!
