Keep the Flame Alive

Mar 2, 2023

It's two interviews for the price of one! On this episode, middle-distance running coach and in-stadium announcer Geoff Wightman joins us to talk about how to run a 1500m, as well as what it's like to keep a crowd entertained during an athletics competition.

You can follow him on Insta and Twitter. Geoff also has a series of e-books on Amazon that tell about his life and stories in sport.

In our Seoul 1988 history moment, Alison keeps the "all in the family" theme going, with a look at the Olympians whose parents and/or children were part of these Games.

In our visit to TKFLASTAN, we get updates from:

Plus, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has agreed to take on the Kamila Valieva appeal.
