Keep the Flame Alive

Apr 7, 2022

Now that we're back from Beijing 2022, we're able to restart our history segment. This year we're focusing on the Albertville 1992 Winter Games, and what better way to reboot this bit than by chatting with ski historian Tom Kelly. Tom shares some of the big skiing stories of these Games, including the demonstration sport that turned deadly.


Plus, the Paris 2024 Olympic schedule has been released. We take a look at the amazing weekend of sports it's slated to have.


Have you wondered how much it cost us to report from Beijing 2022? Jill's always asking guests what things cost, so it's only fair that we break down the numbers for you. We've got our expense reports finished – what's the grand total?


In news from TKFLASTAN, we've got updates from these members of Team Keep the Flame Alive:

There's a doping alert from Rio 2016 – we'll give you one guess on which sport experienced another medal stripping.

Plus, updates from:

  • Rio 2016
  • Tokyo 2020
  • Beijing 2022
  • Paris 2024
  • Milan-Cortina 2026
