Episode 96: Superfan Sarah on Olympics Preparations & Tokyo
We’re less than a year away from the Tokyo Olympics, which means there’s not that much time for fans to prep. Never fear–Superfan Sarah is back to give us some tips on what we can do now. Plus, she’s also spent a good amount of time in Tokyo, so she’s got tips on how to beat the heat, different food to eat, how to get around and more!
We always love it when Sarah’s on because there’s so much to talk about. She fills us in on what the mood was like at the recent U.S. Classic gymnastics event that she and Listener Meredith attended. We also take the first of what will likely be many “What Sport Are You?” quizzes. This one is based on your Myers-Brigg personality types…..and it was really written for a recent Commonwealth Games, but it’s been floated around now too (in case you wonder why “your sport” isn’t in the Olympics–if that’s the case, how do you match up in terms of shoes?).
There’s super-exciting news from the Pan American Games: Team Olympic Fever members Samantha Achterberg and (SPOILER ALERT) Jacqueline Simoneau (we found out about her after we taped) are Tokyo bound! Plus, Sarah Gascon and Team USA had their best showing in Women’s Team Handball since 2003.
Also, if you’d like to hear the dulcet tones of Jason Bryant in person, he’ll be announcing the Canadian Olympic Wrestling Trials. These will take place on December 6-8 in Niagara, Ontario.
