Keep the Flame Alive

Nov 11, 2022

We're just weeks away from registration for the ticket lottery for the Paris 2024 Olympics, so our TFKLASTANI travel expert Ken Hanscom is here to tell us about the new way tickets will be sold (and why it's OK to not win a spot in the first ticket lottery). He also talks about the lodging situation, so you can start planning your trip!

Follow Ken on Twitter and Insta. He also runs the Paris 2024 Olympics Planning & Preparation Facebook Group, so if you're not part of that, you should be. Its members have tons of great advice, whether this is your first or umpteenth Games. Ken's also put out the "Ultimate Guide to Paris 2024 — Your Roadmap to the Summer Games in Paris, France," so be sure to check out that as well!

In our Albertville 1992 history moment, Jill looks at the Men's 20K Biathlon race -- and a case of blood doping gone seriously wrong.

In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we have news from Team Keep the Flame Alive members:

In our Games updates, we have the next steps on the Kamila Valieva situation (spoiler alert: Nothing's resolved), a teaser on the Paris 2024 mascots, and a new leader for Milan-Cortina 2026.
