THIS IS EPISODE 178 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Christa Dietzen is a two-time Olympic volleyball player with Team USA. She was a co-captain on the 2012 team that captured silver in London and the 2016 team that won bronze in Rio.
She was selected to join the U.S. national team roster in May 2009. Prior to that, she led Penn State University to back-to-back NCAA championships in ’07 and ’08. She was the 2007 Big Ten Player of the Year.
Dietzen retired from volleyball following the 2016 Olympics, and is now a public speaker, encouraging and sharing her testimony and story to others.
In Part 1 of our two-part podcast, Dietzen shares how she came to love volleyball, her time at Penn State, and how her drive to becoming an Olympian actually led her to faith in Christ.
