The Perfect Athlete Podcast

04-03-2022 • 58 mins


Uneven ground, blinding sunlight, blistering heat and an unspoken bond between two prime athletes - it could only be the intense sport of beach volleyball that brings all these elements together.

Two of England’s finest volleyball players, Jess Grimson and Daisy Mumby, have been playing together since just before the pandemic, and in that time done the groundwork for their shot at the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

Speaking on the unique physical challenges posed by a sport where the average rally is less than 14 seconds, Jess and Daisy share their rigorous training regime, the sport’s growing focus on strength & conditioning, how to form the best partnerships, and the creativity that keeps volleyball players on their toes.
