American flyweight boxer Ginny
Fuchs joins us to tell us more about how boxing works. Ginny is
also coping with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and as May is
Mental Health Awareness Month, she tells us how OCD manifests for
her and what sort of treatments she goes through to better manage
Book Club Claire also joins us for a preview of our next Book Club Book, Sevens Heaven: The Beautiful Chaos of Fiji's Olympic Dream (affiliate link). She chats with author Ben Ryan about bringing this story to readers.
What are our TKFLASTANIs up to this week? We've got news from:
Throughout 2021 we're revisiting great stories from Atlanta 1996! For our Atlanta 1996 moment this week, Alison tells us about the boxing tournament, Floyd Mayweather's bout, and (surprise!) questionable officiating.
We also have Games Updates
from Tokyo 2020, including
the release of more Playbooks, a call for volunteer doctors and
nurses (how popular is this request during the COVID-19?
pandemic?), a Paralympic vlogger competition, some maranovela news
and the winners of the Olympic Village dining hall recipe contest.
Plus, the International Olympic Committee gave its website a facelift!
Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
