A look back, a look ahead. In 2024, Paris will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the second time they hosted the Olympics. Jill and Alison spend this episode looking at the innovations from Paris 1924 and the parallels between it and Paris 2024. We look forward to what the 2024 Games will bring! (we can only hope it’s as good as Alison’s rendition of the “Chariots of Fire” theme).
Plus, a trivia extravaganza, and we hear your reports from Olympic Day #OFOD! Remember, you can celebrate Olympic Day by learning something new about the Olympic Movement; participating in a sport (new to you or otherwise); practicing Olympic values; or getting someone to buy you a steak…..well, maybe not that last one, but you get our drift. Post up your pics and video on social with #OFOD.
