We had such a great time talking with figure skating analyst Jackie Wong that we had to include his full interview here. He goes deep on figure skating--who to watch for, the scoring system, skating judges and the different disciplines....and he humors Jill while she waxes poetic about spirals.
It's the week Alison has been looking forward to: Figure Skating Week! We've got three great guests on today's show: Olympic Pairs Skater Nate Bartholomay, Mental Coach Rebekah Dixon, and analyst Jackie Wong.
We're talking women's ice hockey this week, with one of the most important people on the rink: an official. Linesman Jessica Leclerc talks ice hockey officiating, what officials look for during a game and her road to the Olympics. Plus, Team USA's Brianna Decker talks with Jill about her role in the sport.
It's snowboard week on Olympic Fever! Jill talks with Alex Diebold, Sochi 2014 bronze medallist in snowboardcross, and Alison chats with halfpipe medal hopeful Chloe Kim at Team USA Winterfest. It's also time to prepare for your Opening Ceremonies party--we talk with Team USA's #1 fan Sarah Patton for party planning advice.
This week we are heading to the biathlon range, where contributor Ben Jackson talks with Team USA biathlete Clare Egan, who recently made the U.S. Olympic team and is heading to PyeongChang for her first Olympics!
