It's that time of year when the International Olympic Committee members get together for their semiannual IOC Session, and this one was a big one, with the announcement of the 2026 Winter Olympics host city and the proposed additional sports for the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Team USA sport climber Josh Levin is back on the show to talk about his involvement with the sport since age 4 and training for the Tokyo Olympics. He also tells us which countries to watch out for at the Games.
It might still be a year away, but it's not too early to start planning your trip to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. This week we're talking with Ken Hanscom, COO of Ticket Manager and a recognized expert in ticketing, corporate sponsorships, traveling to and experiencing the Olympic Games. Ken tells us about the ticketing process, when to start looking for flights and hotel rooms and what else you can do in Tokyo during the Olympics if you don't happen to get tickets (three word clue: Heineken Holland House).
Who will win the right to host the 2026 Winter Olympics? We look at the bids from Milan-Cortina and Stockholm-Åre.
