Keep the Flame Alive

Aug 4, 2022

Big changes are coming to the sport of modern pentathlon for the Paris 2024 Olympics. Contributor Ben Jackson talks with Team GB Olympian Jo Muir, who breaks down what they are and how the sport will look. Also, what's hotter? Tokyo at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics or the United Kingdom in summer 2022?

Follow Jo on Insta: @jomuir_194 and @poised_pilates.

In our news from TKFLASTAN, we have updates from:

  • Beach volleyball player Kelly Claes Cheng
  • Retired luger Jayson Terdiman
  • Superfan Sarah

We also have some news from Paris, in which Jill bungles pronunciations and we wonder how the ever-increasing budget will affect venue locations.

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