In this episode of our podcast, Olympic Dreams: From San Diego to Tokyo, Chat with Team USA rugby players Abby Gustaitis and Kasey McCravey.
The USA Women’s Sevens team trains full-time at the Chula Vista Elite Athletes Training Center. That is, most domestic players live in the San Diego area.
Listen to Episode 7:
USA Women had the most successful season in history before the COVID-19 pandemic, winning five medals in six tournaments and finishing the 2018-19 season in second place in the world rankings.
Rugby is a growing sport in the United States today, especially for girls and women.
Gustaitis and McCravey, like most teammates, are athletes at other sports colleges and later found rugby.
They are passionate about breaking the stereotype of the word “graceful”, breaking down barriers and winning the first Olympic medal in sports in Tokyo.
Rugby women are very likely to be American darlings at the Tokyo Olympics. But when it’s time to compete and get the money, they won’t be loved ones about it.
Don’t miss this week’s conversation with two stars from Team USA Rugby Sevens.
