My line of Tokyo Olympics world flags inspired streetwear and loungewear featuring
Most flags, in some form or another, are designed to represent the spirit of a country.
They come in many bright and beautiful colors, shades, emblems, shapes, and mottos of all kinds.
I think every flag has a story to tell and I designed a collection of comfy volleyball outfits which bring those stories to life.
I was bummed to learn about the cancellation of the original Tokyo 2020 Olympics dates due to the global pandemic.
I’m optimistic about the forecast for the athlete participation and TV spectatorship and host country attendance for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics re-scheduled to take place in July this summer.
Everything became very real this month when the Olympic torch relay began in Greece on March 25 and continued on to Japan in the city of Fukushima.
This Olympic flame event was made especially significant to me for two reasons.
Secondly, considering that the first event of this kind in Japan was the 1964 Tokyo Olympics torch relay this year's event brings everything back full circle, 57 years later.
I was on the US National volleyball team and was so close to becoming an Olympian in the 1980s, so I understand the work, the sacrifice and the journey of becoming a world class elite athlete because I was one for a long time. I know what it takes.
I’ve been a USA High Performance coach who has trained the top Vegas volleyball athletes for a long time now, in hopes of helping young players reach their goals especially if those include helping others possibly make it to the Olympics.
Anyway, I found another way to embrace my obsession with the Olympics with the creation of my Tokyo Olympics world flags inspired collection of streetwear and loungewear featuring cute outfits with sweatpants, trendy sports bra and shorts sets, sports bra bikini top combos, tie dye bikini with matching rashguard shirts, tie dye hoodies and jogger pants that make comfy volleyball outfits which bring those stories to life.
The Olympics is an elite international sports competition event where the world comes together every four years to celebrate unity,
peace, and hope.
We all can use some hope during these trying times, right?
So, fueled by this Olympian spirit, I created brightly colored re-imaginations of each country's flag introducing stripes, dots, and even tie dye versions to re-interpret and re-create new and striking patterns and designs you'd be proud to wear while cheering for your Olympic national team.

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
