After winning two Olympic medals (silver in London and bronze in Rio), U.S. Women captain Larson was aiming for one more medal in the Tokyo Games that are supposed to be held this summer. Due to coronavirus pandemic, the event was postponed to 2021. The 33-year-old outside hitter planned to end her professional career this summer, making Tokyo Olympics the last tournament to compete at but decided to put this plan on hold for one year.
“A lot of us are a little bit bummed. I am most grateful that it’s (Olympics) not canceled. That could’ve been ten times worse. I think that’s a great benefit for us – it gives us more time to prepare. Putting on the USA jersey means the world to me. That’s why I’m okay with it (retirement) extending a year,“ the 2014 FIVB World Championship winner said in an interview for 1011 News.
