He then helped pioneer the coconut water craze with Zico coconut water, which he and his partners sold to The Coca-Cola Company in 2013.

Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about beach volleyball, Olympic sporting events, and which book inspired them to be better dads. They get inspired by this week’s guest 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist, Phil Dalhausser.

Phil Dalhausser was born in Switzerland and moved to the U.S. at a young age. As he got older Phil started playing beach volleyball and enjoyed a break-out year in 2006 when he partnered with Todd Rodgers, an 11 years veteran of professional beach volleyball. Since teaming up, the duo has become one of the best beach volleyball teams of all time.

In the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, Phil and Todd won the gold medal match two sets to one against Marcio Araujo and Fabio Luiz Magalhaes of Brazil. Dalhausser made nine blocks in the championship match, with five coming in the deciding third set, putting the U.S. up to a 9-1 lead and eventually winning it 15-4. Dalhausser was named tournament MVP. Phil‘s nickname on the tour was the “Thin Beast” and later became “Beijing Beast” after his performance in China.

Phil is married to beach volleyball player Jennifer Corral. Phil and Jennifer have two kids and live in California.
