The International Olympic Committee's Executive Board met for a couple of days this week. We give you the lowdown on their agenda (warning: there is breakdancing talk).
After the tragic death of Olympian Kelly Catlin, we wanted to talk to someone about sports psychology and try to understand some of the mental challenges elite athletes face. Sport and Performance Psychologist Dr. Kristin Keim of Keim Performance Consulting joins us to explain the field of sports psychology, how athletes use it for improving performance, and how they use it when it's time to retire.
We’re less than 500 days away from the start of Tokyo 2020, so we thought it would be fun to look back at the last Games held in Tokyo and compare the two. Tokyo 1964 was special for many advances, both for the Games and for the country of Japan–it’s interesting to note those changes and wonder how we’ll experience with the next Summer Games.
Alison is back, so we're doing a deeper dive on the new sports proposed for Paris 2024. Last October, we talked with The Sports Examiner's editor Rich Perelman about the proliferation of sports in the Olympics, so we're bringing you that conversation.
