Keep the Flame Alive

Mar 24, 2022

We are back from Beijing, so it's time to talk about all of the things we couldn't get to while we were in China! Coming along for the fun are contributors Book Club Claire and Superfan Sarah. We talk with them about the US experience vs. the China experience, as well as:


  • More bus issues
  • A scare at the airport
  • The Russia situation
  • The "Green" Games
  • So much security
  • Entering and leaving the warm embrace of the Closed Loop


Plus, our regular features are back! We head to TKFLASTAN for news from Team Keep the Flame Alive members:


  • Erin Jackson
  • Lauren Gibbs
  • Clare Egan
  • Kelly Claes
  • Stephanie Roble and Maggie Shea
  • Bradley Wilson
  • Tony Azevedo
  • Laura Wilkinson
  • Ginny Fuchs
  • Steve Emt
  • Kim Rhode


Unfortunately, we also have doping news (from London 2012, no less), and an update on the Kamila Valieva investigation.


Paris 2024 has announced its ticketing program, and members of Le Club will get first crack.


And Milan-Cortina has provided details about its mascot competition.
