Episode 123: Jake Dalton’s Olympics
We’re back in the gym with U.S. gymnast Jake Dalton, who tells us about his experiences at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics. We also learn about the strategy involved in the gymnastics team competition.
Our Team Olympic Fever Update, sponsored by PinCollector.com, includes the latest results from bobsledder Lauren Gibbs and speedskater Erin Jackson. Bobsled stud Josh Williamson is also in Team USA news.
In our Tokyo 2020 update, we succumb to coronavirus talk, and we have updates on the volleyball and baseball competitions. We also learn that the International Paralympic Committee might pull wheelchair basketball from the Tokyo 2020 program. What?!?!
