Episode 118: “Next Olympic Hopeful” Winner Leah Fair Takes on Skeleton
Team USA recently aired Season 3 of its “The Next Olympic Hopeful” program in which it tests athletes from around the country to find potential talent that can fill out the development programs in some of the smaller sports on the Olympic program. Skeleton winner Leah Fair joins us to talk about her experience on the show, what it’s like to hurl yourself down a mountain face first, and what she learned about custom fitting a skeleton helmet. Plus, there’s a new chapter for both the Maranovela and the Hotelnovela, and a nice slice of TOFU!
