Beach volleyball not all sun and sand

GB beach volleyball player Robin Miedzybrodzki is not your typical aspiring Olympian. He receives no public funding and in a bid to raise the £40-50,000 he needs to reach the 2012 Games, he has begun working as a trainee civil engineer for National Rail.

BBC Sport's Nick Hope caught up with Miedzybrodzki at his training base in Yorkshire.

Watch more interviews with stars like triple jumper Philips Idowu, cyclist Mark Cavendish, taekwondo world champion Sarah Stevenson and sailing great Ben Ainslie on British Olympic Dreams from 14 May.
