Dain Blanton Biography

Beach volleyball player, Dain Blanton was born November 28, 1971 in Laguna Beach, California who attended Pepperdine University where he was an All-American and guided The Waves to a National Volleyball Championship in 1992 as a sophomore.

He won the gold medal in Beach Volleyball in the 2000 Olympic Games, alongside partner Eric Fonoimoana. He returned to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece with partner Jeff Nygaard, becoming the only two-time U.S. male Beach Volleyball Olympian.

Blanton and Fonoimoana split after rule changes went into effect in 2001. [(Rally or Point per Play scoring as opposed to having to traditional Serve to Score a point) (Court size changed from 30 by 30 feet per side to 8x8 meters)]. Height became the deciding factor of the split since new rules cater to a full time tall blocker at the net at all times. They went separate ways in search of Big Blockers.

As a high school senior in 1990, Blanton was named the Orange County Player of the Year, Most Valuable Player of the Pacific Coast League and earned all-American honors at the Junior Olympics.

Blanton was also an All-State Basketball player who led Laguna Beach to the CIF Finals in 1990.

He is known for his fast serve holding the AVP record for 11 aces in a single game to 15 in Vail, Colorado in 1997.

Currently Dain is playing beach volleyball part time on the AVP tour and beginning a new career in Sports Broadcasting working with Fox Sports Net and Universal Sports Network. He is covering many sports including NBA, MLB, College Football and Beach Volleyball.

Dain was the runner-up to Andrew Firestone on the third season of ABC television network reality show The Bachelor.
