Phil Dalhausser, the 2008 Beach Volleyball Olympic Gold Medalist is considering competing in his fourth Olympic Games, not ruling out playing in Tokyo in 2020.

“I’m just taking it year by year but if I keep winning tournaments and I’m still winning in 2019 then the chances are I’ll play 2020,” said Dalhausser.

The 2016 Rio Olympic Games were a disappointing trip for Dalhausser and partner Nick Lucena when they were eliminated by Alison Cerutti and Bruno Oscar Schmidt in the quarterfinals. Not dwelling on the loss, Dalhausser looks to continue with the 2017 season and his 12th season with at least one title on the FIVB World Tour. He is on a tough workout regimen to get ready for the 2017 beach season

Recently, Dalhausser has partnered with LA Tourism to promote LA’s beaches in conjunction with Red Bull.
