We're excited to welcome back TKFLASTANIS Hannah Brown and Jacqueline Simoneau to hear about their experiences at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Plus, great news from TKFLASTAN, and surprise! An IOC member puts his foot in his mouth.
It's official: The Tokyo 2020 Olympics has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look at the timeline of the decision. We also check in with Team Olympic Fever members Jacqueline Simoneau, DeAnna Price, Samantha Schultz and new members Dr. Mary O'Connor and Phil Andrews to see how they're doing.
Today we're delighted to have Canadian Olympian Jacqueline Simoneau to explain the sport of synchronized swimming (also known as artistic swimming). This sport is no joke - it requires stamina and strength and the ability to take a kick, perhaps to the head. Jacqueline explains it all, the sequins, the hair gelatin, and the amazingly complicated moves like stack lifts, spins and thrusts. It's nothing like that classic SNL sketch.
