Plus, our TKFLASTANIs are arriving in Tokyo, and we have more team news from:

In Tokyo, the other shoe dropped, as the city reentered a state of emergency and officials declared there will be no spectators at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. We talk about the implications of that, both now and in the future.

Athletes are arriving in Tokyo to prepare for competition, and not everyone’s so happy about some of the wording used to help keep the bubble intact.

Plus, TBach has made it to Tokyo! We’re getting ready for an IOC family reunion at the next IOC Session.

Also, Alison’s been on the hunt for Team USA Oreos for quite some time. How successful has her latest shopping trip been?
