Jordan Larson wants one more try at Olympic gold. Larson has earned bronze and silver medals over her volleyball career and says the quest for gold is keeping her in the sport.

The Hooper, Nebraska native is hoping to remain on Team USA for the 2020 Olympics in Tokoyo. She says she is in great physical shape and feels she can compete at a very high level. Larson has twice been named USA Volleyball Indoor Player of the Year.

""I love this team and I love being a part of it," Larson said. "I love wearing USA on my jersey and representing our country."

Larson is in her 10th year playing for the USA National Volleyball Team. She admits retirement has crossed her mind, but she has no plans to quit any time soon.

"There's still meat on the bone for me," Larson said.

Larson and Team USA plays in Lincoln this week in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League. The team has matches scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm.
