With the Olympics in Rio just days away, we have decided that it’s time to get to know some of the American athletes that you will be watching. Sure you already know Carmelo Anthony, Klay Thompson and DeAndre Jordan, but what about those volleyball players, gymnasts, and swimmers who you’ve never heard of. They deserve just as much love and affection as the professional basketball players and Michael Phelps.
Continuing the series, we head to the volleyball courts and find Kelsey Robinson. We all know how intense volleyball can be, but fortunately for Robinson, it comes as second nature. She features a wide variety of neck wear, including Gold medals from the 2014 FIVB World Championship and the 2015 FIVB World Grand Prix. You can see how she dominates the court in her All-American highlight video from her time at Nebraska. Hailing from Elmhurst, Illinois, Robinson actually loved basketball over volleyball. Being a huge Bulls and Michael Jordan fan, she wore number 23 in honor of the legend.
