Did you know that the 2018 Youth Olympic Games is opening this weekend?
Wait a second….there’s a Youth Olympic Games?
Jill and Alison spend this episode–and only this episode–talking about why the Youth Olympic Games exists and if it’s worth the trouble. Olympic and multi-sport/multi-day event expert Rich Perelman talks them through the YOG and if it’s a good thing for the Olympic movement.
Rich is also the founder and editor of The Sports Examiner, a thrice-weekly publication that covers the entire Olympic program (FTR: we’re subscribers). Follow him on Twitter at @RichPerelman.
As always, we’ve got a slice of TOFU for you and a Tokyo 2020 update. Tokyo 2020 volunteering info is here.
Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
