Phillip Dutton, 6x Olympian in Equestrian Eventing.

Episode 181: 6x Olympic Equestrian Phillip Dutton on Eventing

Release Date: March 25, 2021

It’s always a thrill for us when we share a story about an Olympian and then they come on the show. A few weeks ago, we talked about the 1996 Australian eventing team’s performance at the Atlanta Olympics. Now we have one of those team members on the show! 6x Olympian Phillip Dutton joins us to tells us about how equestrian eventing works and the partnership between athlete and horse.

Learn more about Phillip at his website and follow him on Facebook and Insta.

We’re also still taking in the news from Tokyo 2020: No overseas fans welcome at this summer’s Olympics.  TKFLASTANI Ken Hanscom joins us to talk about the ticketing situation and what fans are feeling now that they can’t go to the Games.

What are our TKFLASTANIs up to this week? We’ve got news from:

  • Tony Azevedo
  • Clare Egan
  • Josh Williamson
  • Lauren Gibbs
  • David Davis – read his latest article here.

We also have Games Updates from Tokyo 2020, in that the organizing committee has to deal with another insensitive gaff, but maybe people will forget about it now that the Torch Relay has started!

Plus, we have big news for us about the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics!

Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
