Legendary softball outfielder Laura Berg is the most decorated softball Olympian, winning 3 gold medals, 1 silver medal and having played at every Olympic softball tournament ever held. She’s now head coach at Oregon State University and is extending her Olympic streak as a member of Team USA’s coaching staff for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. We talked with her about the game and building a team.
What are our TKFLASTANIs up to this week? We’ve got news from:
- Ski jumper Sarah Hendrickson
- Diver Laura Wilkinson
Throughout 2021 we’re revisiting great stories from the Atlanta 1996 Olympics! For our Atlanta 1996 moment this week, Jill gets into the importance of Team USA’s women’s basketball legacy and why it’s especially relevant this week.
We also have Games Updates from Tokyo 2020 (the Torch Relay has started!!!) and Milan-Cortina 2026 (did you choose the winning logo?).
Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
