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.

In our Team Olympic Fever update, Josh Williamson is starting off his bobsled season right; XC skier Kikkan Randall has a sweet new appointment; and hockey referee Jessica Leclerc is featured in the New York Times.
We also have the latest in the Tokyo 2020 maranovela saga. The maranovela is sadly taking the spotlight over other Tokyo 2020 news, including the main stadium being completed.
Plus, the IOC’s got a brand-new sponsor in AirBnb, which is going to sponsor the Games through 2028. We talk about that development….could we have the makings of a hotelnovela?!
