Keep the Flame Alive

Oct 27, 2023

This week we're delighted to have Olympic rower and podcaster Kristi Wagner on the show. Kristi competes in double sculls, finishing 5th at the Tokyo Olympics with Gevvie Stone. She now rows with Sophia Vitas and they won the world championships this year. We talked with Kristi about rowing, changing partners, and her new role as host of  the podcast The Other 3 Years.

Follow Kristi on Insta and be sure to subscribe to her podcast--it's an excellent listen, and you'll learn so much about what elite athletes go through in the years leading up to the Games.

We have a Kickstarter to help us raise money for our work in covering the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics from Paris. Please support our efforts here.

In our history moment, Alison looks at the rowing competition at Seoul 1988 and what spurred Australia to invest in its women's rowing team.

In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we have news from:

Plus we have news from Paris 2024!
