We're back after technical problems and a medical emergency derailed the show last week. This show is worth the wait though!
We're excited to have British Paralympic bronze medalist Louise Sugden on the show this week to help us learn about the sport of para powerlifting and setting goals that keep her motivated to go further in the sport.
The European Para Powerlifting Championships take place September 24-29. Follow the action here.
In our history segment, which focuses on Albertville 1992 this year, Jill takes to the cross-country competition to tell the tale of Raisa Smetanina, one of the greats in the sport and the first winter athlete to achieve an amazing feat.
You can learn more about Raisa at her museum (which also happens to be her home).
In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we have a number of updates from our Team Keep the Flame Alive members, including:
In Games news we have:
Plus we have an update from last week's IOC Executive Board meeting.
