Keep the Flame Alive

Aug 11, 2023

Paris 2024 added a number of hip, urban sports to the program for their Games, including breakdancing. However, if you're an average Games fan and maybe have caught a little bit of breakin' here and there, you may not understand how it works. Not to worry -- American B-girl Sunny Choi is here to explain it all, including what happened to The Worm.

Follow Sunny on Instagram and on TikTok!

Intern Annalee has got some follow-up from last week's Seoul history moment, including some contributions from Listener Patrick from Chicagoland. 

Also check out this 2023 BBC interview with the referee of this bout, Keith Walker.

Jill has another story from Seoul, the amazing performance of East German swimmer Kristen Otto -- though you may understand why it's so amazing.

Want even more Seoul 1988 in your life? Listener Manu put a great story in our Facebook Group.

In news from TKFLASTAN, our listeners have been busy -- Listener Patrick from Chicagoland, David, and Superfan Sarah have all gone to some cool events!

There's a little news from Paris 2024 in the form of "what story will the media blow up?" Today's entry is "the cleanliness of the Seine."

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