IT IS ONE YEAR UNTIL THE TOKYO 2020 OLYMPICS!!! With all of the celebrations and ceremonies happening in Tokyo and with National Olympic Committees around the world, we couldn't be more excited. We wanted to get some perspective on what it's like on the ground in Tokyo, so we asked Roy Tomizawa to come on our show and give us some insight.
Ever wonder what happens to Olympic medals and torches? Some go to museums; some go to auction and to a collector's collection. This week we're talking to Jon Becker, Olympic auction consultant for RR Auction, who tells us the type of items that go up for auction and how much they can be worth (you'll be surprised to know how much Jill has held in her hand).
Book Club Claire is back to discuss our latest book club selection, Making Waves: My Journey to Winning Olympic Gold and Defeating the East German Doping Program by Shirley Babashoff with Chris Epting.
It's Canada Day and Independence Day in the US this week, so we're celebrating by putting together a set of Lightning Rounds. We ask our Team Olympic Fever members five quick questions, and we love hearing how different everyone's answers are!
