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!

Scott Riewald, the U.S. Olympic Committee's Director of High Performance, talks to us about bringing back its reality/documentary show "Scouting Camp: The Next Olympic Hopeful" and what's new for season 2.

If you want to try out for the show, check out their website. Show partner 24 Hour Fitness is hosting tryouts all over the country on June 2 -- you still have time to get in on this opportunity! The test includes a 30-meter sprint, pull ups and a vertical jump.

Also on this episode, we realize we're getting close to Olympic Day, so we start preparing for the first Olympic Fever Olympic Day celebration. You too can get in on the fun --learn something about the Olympics or try a new sport, post the results on social media with #OFOD! Olympic Day takes place on June 20, but we're celebrating through June 24. We look forward to seeing what you do!
