Keep the Flame Alive

Jul 28, 2021

It says something when a 26-sport day feels manageable. Still, there were some amazing moments in competition on Day 6 at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, including:

  • 3x3 Basketball - We've got our first Olympic medalists!
  • Archery - A cool new feature on the feed.
  • Artistic Gymnastics - Men's All Around competition, plus Simone Biles pulls out of the Women's All Around.
  • Badminton - A big upset.
  • Baseball
  • Canoe Slalom - TKFLASTANI Luuka Jones starts her C1 competition.
  • Cycling - Road Individual Time Trials - Does NED correct the mistakes from the road race?
  • Diving
  • Equestrian
  • Fencing
  • Football - Knockout stage is set.
  • Judo
  • Rowing - Things we've never before seen in a rowing race.
  • Rugby - Is it a 2nd gold for Fiji?
  • Sailing - How are our TKFLASTANIS Stephanie Roble and Maggie Shea doing in the 49er FX?
  • Swimming - Who could look upset about a gold medal? One swimmer can.
  • Tennis - A change in start times
  • Water Polo - A surprising game for Team USA's women.
  • Weightlifting


  • Weather Watch - A maranovela edition
  • Where's Marnie (McBean, our TKF Chef de Mission)?
  • What Officiating Role Would Jill Want?

And we sink into the backstory of Mike and Maya, of the Toyota "First Date" ad.
