Download this episode!

Did you know that the 2018 Youth Olympic Games is opening this weekend?

Wait a second….there’s a Youth Olympic Games?


Jill and Alison spend this episode–and only this episode–talking about why the Youth Olympic Games exists and if it’s worth the trouble. Olympic and multi-sport/multi-day event expert Rich Perelman talks them through the YOG and if it’s a good thing for the Olympic movement.

Rich is also the founder and editor of The Sports Examiner, a thrice-weekly publication that covers the entire Olympic program (FTR: we’re subscribers). Follow him on Twitter at @RichPerelman.

As always, we’ve got a slice of TOFU for you and a Tokyo 2020 update. Tokyo 2020 volunteering info is here.

We’re so grateful to you, our listeners, and we’re excited about some new developments here at Olympic Fever Central that let the world know how you keep the flame alive. We have merch! And a Patreon site (with cool donor thank yous)! We really appreciate your support to keep us going through the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and beyond!
