Keep the Flame Alive

Jan 19, 2023

We are so excited to have Dick Pound on today's episode. Dick is one of the most influential people in the Olympic Movement. This is the first part of our interview with Dick, in which we talk about his Olympic experiences and some details about his involvement with the Olympic Movement.

We also have an announcement about a SPECIAL EVENT that's coming up in March!

In our look at Seoul, Jill delves into life at the Olympic Village. What was the salad bar called? What did you get if your birthday fell during the Games? What was that final event all about? How much do we miss the sexism of the 1980s?

In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we have news from:

We have an "update" on the Kamila Valieva Beijing 2022 doping situation, which  is exactly what we expected. Now on to a World Anti-Doping Agency appeal.

In news from Paris 2024, hospitality packages have gone on sale. These include guaranteed tickets and a number of other experiences.

There's also some concern about climate change affecting an Athletes' Village that is planned to have no air conditioning.

We also have broadcast rights updates for future Games for both the Olympics and Paralympics. European and Asian listeners - here's how you'll watch them!

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