It's American Thanksgiving, so we're serving up a Lightning Round featuring Team Olympic Fever members Harry Blutstein, Tim Yount and Tom Scott.
This week we talk with Olympic hopeful Madelynn Gorman-Shore to understand how the sport of Taekwondo works. We learn that it's much more than just kicking people in the head, it's also the sport of very expensive socks.
Book Club Claire is back! We discuss our latest pick, Munich 1972: Tragedy, Terror, and Triumph at the Olympic Games by David Clay Large. If you finished it—and Jill finished it with all of four minutes to go before we taped—congratulations! This one was a tough one to get through, although there are sections that are really interesting (and if you like to learn details about Olympics preparations, a good half of the book is for you).
U.S. Olympian and World Champion Hammer Thrower DeAnna Price is back to tell us about her experiences at the Rio 2016 Olympics and take some listener questions.
