We're on the shooting range with SPC Tim Sherry of Team USA and the US Army Marksmanship Unit. Tim walks us through the sport of 3 Position Rifle, including how to shoot in wind and rain, dealing with your feet falling asleep during competition, how puberty affects your shooting, the cost of a rifle, and why the new Olympic mixed rifle event will be exciting to watch.
Plus, our TKFLASTANIs are arriving in Tokyo, and we have more team news from:
In Tokyo, the other shoe dropped, as the city reentered a state of emergency and officials declared there will be no spectators at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. We talk about the implications of that, both now and in the future.
Athletes are arriving, and not everyone's so happy about some of the wording used to help keep the bubble intact.
Plus, TBach has made it to Tokyo! We're getting ready for an IOC family reunion at the next IOC Session.
Also, Alison's been on the hunt for Team USA Oreos for quite some time. How successful has her latest shopping trip been?
Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
