Keep the Flame Alive

Jun 3, 2022

Olympic Host Cities usually get a reputation for spending a ton of money building venues that become white elephants, but that's not necessarily the case. The International Olympic Committee has released a report that catalogs all of the modern Olympic venues and what's happened to them. We delve into this report and examine the IOC's findings. We find some surprises--and sadly, some disappointments. Find out which cities have done it right and which ones haven't.

We also have an update from TKFLASTAN and our Team Keep the Flame Alive.

Doping and classification woes abound, and there's a new installment of our modern pentathlonovela.

Plus, Paris 2024's got some inflation woes, Milan-Cortina 2026 released its song, and LA 2028 is getting a little closer to figuring out what sports should be on its program.

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