Keep the Flame Alive

Aug 1, 2019

We're less than a year away from the Tokyo Olympics, which means there's not that much time for fans to prep. Never fear--Superfan Sarah is back to give us some tips on what we can do now. Plus, she's also spent a good amount of time in Tokyo, so she's got tips on how to beat the heat, different food to eat, how to get around and more!

We always love it when Sarah's on because there's so much to talk about. She fills us in on what the mood was like at the recent U.S. Classic gymnastics event that she and Listener Meredith attended. We also take the first of what will likely be many "What Sport Are You?" quizzes. This one is based on your Myers-Brigg personality types.....and it was really written for a recent Commonwealth Games, but it's been floated around now too (in case you wonder why "your sport" isn't in the Olympics--if that's the case, how do you match up in terms of shoes?).

Let us know what your Myers-Briggs sport is! Find us in our Facebook Group, or on Twitter/Insta

There's super-exciting news from the Pan American Games: Team Olympic Fever members Samantha Achterberg and (SPOILER ALERT) Jacqueline Simoneau (we found out about her after we taped) are Tokyo bound! Plus, Sarah Gascon and Team USA had their best showing in Women's Team Handball since 2003.

Also, if you'd like to hear the dulcet tones of Jason Bryant in person, he'll be announcing the Canadian Olympic Wrestling Trials. These will take place on December 6-8 in Niagara, Ontario.

Of course, there's always more news from the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee. Check out its plans for WATERFRONT CITY and a commemorative coin!

It's the beginning of the month, so we'll have our Patreon bonus audio out to our Bronze-level and above patrons. Your financial support of the show helps defray the cost and cost of time of doing the show. Plus, the more patrons we have, the more we can do for you. Join in the fun today!
