Eric Fonoimoana: The Body

Welcome to episode seven of Starting Point. In this episode, Casey sits down with the other Olympic gold medalist from Sydney, the one they call “The Body”, Eric Fonoimoana. In this episode you will hear candid stories about Eric’s upbringing in Manhattan Beach, the loss of both parents at a young age, becoming a parent himself, bringing home Olympic gold in Sydney, and a few of the pranks he used to pull to keep things light on tour. You’ll also get a glimpse into the work ethic and mental fortitude of an Olympic champion and the lessons learned in childhood that propelled Eric to a successful beach volleyball career. Please enjoy this conversation with Fonoi and thank you for listening to Starting Point with Casey Jennings.
