Ebiye Udo-Udoma is a member of Team USA’s Beach Handball side. With just a few month’s training the U.S. Men were able to win a Pan American Beach Handball title and qualify for the World Championships this past summer.
The interview covers Ebiye’s journey from regular handball to the beach version and how the U.S. team was able to quickly put together a competitive “sandlot” team with a little help from Brazil. Later we discuss some of the advantages the beach game has over the court game and vice versa. We close with a discussion of the future and the sports potential inclusion in the Olympics.
