We’re back! Same fun Olympics podcast, but a brand new name! We’re still getting things transitioned over to the new name — you’ll see a new website soon, and the back catalog will get reconfigured as well.
We have all new social media handles–new accounts actually, so please follow us and help others find us. It’s the same across Insta, Twitter and Facebook–@flamealivepod. Our Facebook Group is Keep the Flame Alive Podcast.
We welcome New Zealand Olympic medalist and silver fern owner Luuka Jones to the show to talk to us about the sport of canoe slalom. She tells us about what it’s like excelling on the global stage without much support, and what having support can do for your performance. And we learn the best ways to get canoes and kayaks to anywhere in the world.
Luuka also tells us about her experiences competing at Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016, where she won the silver medal. She’s qualified for Tokyo 2020, so we look forward to cheering her on at the Olympics next year.
Follow Luuka on Facebook, Insta and Twitter!
Also on the show, our Team update — but what should we call our team, now that we can’t use Team Olympic Fever? Let us know! The update includes mention of Jake Dalton (and his biceps)’ new YouTube show “A Drink with Jake,” which you can find here.
Plus, some news from the Olympic world and what the surfing waves are like in Tahiti.
Call us! We’d love to hear from you! Our new VM number is 208-FLAME-IT.
Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
