Megan Kraft is just 19 years old, yet is already a World Champion, AVP main draw player – she recently finished a career-high third in New Orleans with Emily Stockman – and is preparing to make a run at the Paris Olympic Games with Stockman. How does a 19-year-old college sophomore, who has already won a pair of National Championships at USC, find herself in that position?
By making it look easy.
Such a fun chat on SANDCAST with Kraft and Savvy Simo. On this episode, we chat about:
- The transition from the NCAA season and going directly into both the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour, and the AVP
- How she and Emily Stockman became a team
- Competing on the biggest stages in the sport, from NCAA Championships to AVP Sundays to medal matches representing the United States
- What the rest of this year looks like for her and Stockman
