Episode 84: Team USA’s “Mom” Sherry Von Riesen
Download this episode!
The US Olympic Committee’s training facility in Colorado Springs plays hosts to hundreds of athletes every year. Some spend a week or two on campus for special training; others live there year round. To make sure the athletes are getting everything they need, the USOC relies on Sherry Von Riesen, athlete services coordinator — or better known as Team Mom. In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend, we learn more about how she helps the athletes become their best.
We’ve also got a lot of Team Olympic Fever news on the docket and some Tokyo 2020 updates (hint: Some International Federations aren’t happy with what’s going on).
