Olympic Fever


The feeling is uncontrollable and comes about every couple of years when athletes around the world convene on one city in their quest for glory. For some reason, you can't stop devouring the news and watching the events. For several weeks, you can't get enough. It's clear: You've got a case of Olympic Fever.

Now there's a podcast that can help. Welcome to Olympic Fever, the podcast for fans of the greatest sporting event in the world: The Olympic Games.

Each week, hosts Jill Jaracz and Alison Brown explore the stories of the Olympics through its sports, athletes, officials, organizers, host cities, fans and more.

New episodes come out every Thursday. Join us for all the fun and grandness that is the Olympic Games.

Citius, Altius, Feverrius.

This week we are heading to the biathlon range, where contributor Ben Jackson talks with Team USA biathlete Clare Egan, who recently made the U.S. Olympic team and is heading to PyeongChang for her first Olympics!

You can read more about Clare at her website and follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

No biathlon conversation would be complete without talking about the greatest: Ole Einar Bjoerndalen! The Norwegian, who has more Winter Olympic medals than any other athlete, will be heading to his 7th Olympic Games. At age 44, he's one of our heroes.

All this, plus trivia--and our first listener emails!

If you'd like to drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you! We're at info @olymfever.com.

Note: Today's show pic is *not* Clare -- it's Jill at the biathlon range in Lake Placid.
