Episode 153: The Big Update Show

Release Date: September 10, 2020

Category: News | Podcast

We are back from vacation just in time to celebrate Tessa Gobbo Day. There’s so much to catch up on that this week’s show turned into one big update. First up, we review all of the Olympic and Paralympic movies we’ve seen during the break. The IOC Executive Board met, so there’s some news from TBach and company. TKFLASTAN’s been hoppin’, so we’ve got tons of news from our Team Keep the Flame Alive and updates from Tokyo 2020, Beijing 2022, Paris 2024 and LA 2028. We definitely need some Oreos and a nap after this.

Mentioned on the show:

Movies: Athlete A, The Weight of Gold, Olympic Dreams, Rising Phoenix

When TKFLASTANIs collide: Andrew Maraniss’ lecture series featuring sports historian Dr. Victoria Jackson.

Get some study tips from artistic swimmer Jacqueline Simoneau.

LA 2028’s dynamic logo.
