Keep the Flame Alive

Nov 3, 2022

We're getting on the track -- the short track -- with Ryan Shane, US Olympic hopeful in short track speed skating. Ryan's got the details of the sport and answers some of our burning questions left over from Beijing 2022! And we've got some ice talk! You know how we love ice talk!

Ryan recently made the Team USA roster for the Fall Short Track World Cup Circuit, so be on the lookout for his competitions! The easiest way to do that is to follow him on Insta and his website.

In our Albertville 1992 history moment, Alison takes us to the ski jumping hill to tell us about Toni Nieminen, who stunned the competition with the latest innovation in ski jumping.

In our update from TKFLASTAN, we have news from:

Also, our condolences to the family of Sid Marantz, who passed away this week.

We also have a doping-related podium update.....from London 2012.

And big news from the government of British Columbia on its thoughts about hosting the 2030 Winter Olympics.
