Keep the Flame Alive

Jun 10, 2021

Today we're on the shooting range with Paralympian McKenna Geer. McKenna is a Paralympic bronze medalist in the sport of rifle shooting. At Rio she competed in the R4 - Mixed 10m Air Rifle Standing SH2 and earned 24th place and the R5 – Mixed 10m Air Rifle Prone SH2, where she took home the bronze medal. We talked with McKenna about how rifle works on the Paralympic side of the sport.

Follow McKenna on Facebook, Insta and Twitter - and cheer for her this week as she competes at the World Cup event in Lima, which is the last qualification opportunity for the Tokyo Paralympics.

What are our TKFLASTANIs up to this week? We've got news from:

  • Paralympian John Register
  • Hurdler Dawn Harper-Nelson
  • Taekwondo athlete Madelynn Gorman-Shore
  • Cross-Country skier Kikkan Randall
  • Beach Volleyball player Kelly Claes
  • BMX rider Connor Fields
  • Modern Pentathlete Samantha Schultz
  • Canoe slalomist Luuka Jones
  • Diver Laura Wilkinson
  • Karate athlete Tom Scott

Plus, tons of news from Tokyo 2020 (including an Atlanta 1996-related moment!) and the International Olympic Committee. Guess what? More medal reallocations due to doping - can you guess which sport is responsible for some of them?

Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
