Keep the Flame Alive

Aug 31, 2023

We're going back to 1994 this week with our latest Movie Club pick: A Promise Kept: The Oksana Baiul Story. This SOBIG made-for-TV biopic had the blessing of Lillehammer 1994 gold medalist of Oksana Baiul and tells the story of her life through her surprise victory amidst the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding scandal (though if you didn't know that scandal happened, you wouldn't learn anything about it from this movie). 

Plus, video journalist Sean Colahan stops by post-Paris vacation to tell us about the atmosphere in the city--and what tourist attractions you can skip.

News from TKFLASTAN, includes updates from:

And we have a little bit of news about the Kamila Valieva doping case--with word on when the final hearing will take place. We also have updates from Paris 2024 now that it's official one year to go until the Paralympics.
