"And everything went fine at the end. You have to be cautious and mitigation is very important. And in worst case scenario you also have to have what we call a contingency plan where you can completely postpone and cancel the event. Some of the women competing in the first round of the 5000 meters here at Hayward field are clearly struggling. It's the hottest day so far. Of course one solution is to cool down the planet, but that doesn't seem likely to happen any time soon. So the timing and location of events, especially those involving endurance athletes just becoming increasingly important. Because lives could be at stake.

"It's the final weekend of the world athletics championships in Oregon where the head of track and field Sebastian Coe has had rising global temperatures pose a significant challenge to the future of his sport. He raised the possibility of moving certain events or possibly entire championships to different parts of the year in an bid to mitigate the risk of heat related illness. Some athletes have struggled in the high temperatures in Eugene, although the conditions had been less severe than last year, when a heat dome in Oregon caused dozens of deaths and the Olympic U.S. Olympic trials were partly suspended to protect competitors and fans. As our sports news correspondent Alex capstick has been finding out from athletes, event organizers and medical experts, it's an issue that needs urgent attention. I'm standing on the main concourse at Hayward field overlooking the warmup area where the late afternoon sun is beating down on the athletes, making their final preparations for this evening's competition. Many of them would have taken special precautions to deal with high temperatures and those running the sport are also having to come to terms with extreme conditions. It's so much of a concern that in future these world championships may well look very different. I've been talking to the president of world athletics Sebastian Coe and he told me that that could mean moving the event to later or earlier in the year. Yeah, I think possibly. Climate change is with us. It's not going to disappear even some of the more visible targets that have been set by governments are not going to make any difference. We have to recognize that we may have to do things in our own way to protect the athletes from these conditions. Competing in the women's 10,000 meter race was Alicia monson. The slightly cooler conditions this year came as a big relief because here at the U.S. Olympic trials, 12 months ago, when it was baking hot, she ended up in hospital. Yeah, yeah, the Olympic trials it was very hot and I had heatstroke

Oh my god. And i looked at him and i was like. There's another one and sure enough. They were in production the same time. I think what had happened. If i'm remembering correctly they were all one group The producers in and writers all were interested in telling the steve prefontaine story and there was some sort of creative rift between Some of the writers and some of the producers and both of them. I think tom cruise was attached to to place de prefontaine before that And i just took so long. I think at the suit of into lights yeah. He's he said. I think he said i think i'll just Produce this well. What happened was as soon as one of the production's got up and going the other one was like no. We need to get a running like we can't Play with the script anymore. We can't look for you. Know binding we to get. This does literally race and A race to finish the movie race to get it out.

"Friday this is my weekly tuesday. Podcast hit the site on wednesday morning. Incites poppin we're is the nfl football season. What it is this cut down day. Then a long day love admit very fruitful day at the same things where everybody come to silver and birthright. Thank you for listening to this podcast. Well i mean let's get right to. Let's talk fifty three man roster. Let's get right into it. I did a post on. This is what i kind of do after games. I kind of hit all the major points. And then i talk about it and i'm kinda do that today. Is that you know that's gonna do. It's a busy day. So initial thoughts fifty three. I liked the defensive tackle death. I really do this. The current fifty this current five. Dt's hankins quinton jefferson. Gerald mccoy so thomas thomas is still only hankins is the only guy who is the holdover. I think this is a better more professional group than we had last year in las vegas. I think could be better coached. And i think you can see some real. If there's defensive revival. I think that is one of the position will will see and that will certainly help the defense ends which has improved the Guay if this unit stays healthy. I'm talking about the defense alliance a whole now. I think things could be really much improved. I think the raiders second second defensive line and there's some thoughts that they're going to you know. Switch these lines like in mass like hockey line and just to keep things healthy and fresh but the key is health with this booth but jerry ceylon can play thomas's okay. Gerald mccoy was really good in the preseason game. If he has anything with this could be good unit. So i'm excited about what. What's on paper right now. Their quarterback positions really interesting. There's a lot of changes additions. There was a lot of cuts Isaiah thomas the star of the charger game last year in la. He's no longer here a woke they love this guy. Two years ago he couldn't stay healthy. He's a big guam cornerback and just didn't work He wasn't very good in the preseason game played much after the chargers game. Much the day after you know. We're all making this guy. A hero and deservedly so and john like well. We used to go and he didn't play much. So this is the raiders cornerbacks as it sits right. Now casey hayward trace trayvon molin david net meek robertson nate hobbs and keeps on nixon. If hayward stay healthy the young vets can take the next step in. Hobbes's what we think. He is from the preseason. This can be dramatically improve unit. They have a lot invested in this unit in. Let's see. I don't know if future i bet. They cut nevin lawson after his two game. Nfl suspension for pd's. I you know. I think that's probably something though they'll do. You know our net and robertson had moments in the preseason. What i wanna see. Those guys is actually play help during the season. I want them to make plays. But if hayward if it's hayward mowing nate hobbs and they're all healthy. It could be a good group. So that's exciting one of the more interesting physician groups riley right we seaver. How about that bill. That's a mouthful anyways You know they cut john brown. They cut karl-josef. We'll talk about that. And they cut doing stone or the undrafted. Everybody thought after john brown played a lot against the forty niners stiller sonar had a good game that maybe they would flip flop but no not for. Now there's gonna be changes. Dj turner got cookie when dasa caught so right now. The receivers are entry rooks. The third by buyer by brian edwards the arena in the names for my notes and the why in his name. Scrutiny me up ryan edwards. I don't i don't fix mistakes guys. I just go. This is a very. We're talking at the bar. We're having beer. People make mistakes. People sneeze people cough. I don't edit that stuff it's real life. Hunter renfrew is as jones. And willie snead. I think there's gonna be some movement on this position group. I think there's gonna be. Some changes is not that deep. It scares me you know there isn't. There's going to be a really deep group. But john brown didn't live up to what they thought he was. He's not going to be this year. Nelson aguilar is zeta jones. Maybe but say jones better show self. I've been hard on him and nothing. Nothing personal it. All in you know what it is is. He's playing twenty six games as raider and he has thirty four catches. That's what i keep. Hearing always naked the next stepping takes next up but he's not taking in the season and this has been in the legal while so he sent his prime so he can do it. But i want to see it as like okay. You know what they signed. John browning gave him guarantee money that he gets to keep after they they they. They knew they had they jones. They brian back but they brought they made brown priority as jones was in the program win. Aguilara sign so he needs to show some more than just a camp and that's just the way that's just reality. And i hope he does radic. Teamer made the team over joseph. Nick bowers made it tatum over their carrier. Sources told me that. Don't be surprised if curious back very soon this world contract weekend so we'll see we'll see bowers state. That's the case. I think we're going to see some movement on wednesday. It was going to be a practiced by signings. There's gonna be guys. Put on the i. R you know guys like rashard and moral in white in maybe even nixon could all be on put on the irr but brought back. That's why they weren't put on. I r today So you'll see guys back. Maybe we'll see trae. Roberts come back maybe. Bj admits maybe another receiver. So there's going to be moving in the next couple of days. This is just the initial fifty three. I think they're gonna they're gonna look for guys offense align. I think they're gonna look for guys at linebacker even after them. Denzel perryman trade. You know he's a backup Look maybe a trial crosby was cut by the lions. He's the las vegas native. i can see him. Maybe being on the raiders radar. Maybe mica kaiser at a linebacker guys like that. You know the raiders signed a lot of free agents this year but not all made it found that caused joseph got cut that dickerson. The defensive lineman got cut rasool. Doug was cut last week blending. Ring wilson cut today and they gave browning and joseph money. I mean that's not ideal that's not ideal that's that's misses. Six or seven draft picks made the team that was good. Jimmy morrissey seven round pick. Didn't make the team. No shame on that either in the draft. Pick over him if he gets through waivers. Benny does and a lot of guys are gonna get through waivers in not not too many news around the league get claimed maybe thirty forty. I think it was last year. A lot of young receiver's got cut so Donors should be safe. We'll see we'll see but yes morrissey gone to the practice squad. Only five players remained on the roster from gruden's at the start of the season in two thousand eighteen car miller Yeah guys you know. War came that season in carlson. And maybe a couple of other guys. But that's pretty crazy guests bradley's fingerprints were over this roster hayward field feeling teamer all played for him with the chargers so he's get some familiarity which is important so yeah. Very interesting I i think defense is deeper than we thought. It was receivers. Maybe a little less deeper than we thought. But you know. I mean this offense goes around there and waller anyways if he stays healthy in jacobson drake stays healthy. Things should be fine so if they can be dynamically better on the defensive line cornerback and that safety with mortga neighbor. Maybe we can see some things. Maybe we can see some things. So that's it that's your show you know i just go..

"Today's conversation with cara gaucho last month cara was here to tell us what it was like being a part of the nbc broadcast team during the us. Track and field trials at hayward field in eugene oregon and that conversation was so fine and so well received that we just had to do it again. Because this time. Kara is fresh off the two week trip to tokyo where she was again. Part of the nbc broadcast team. But this time it was at the olympics. Farah of course is no stranger to the olympics. She's competed there as a professional athlete twice before but this time around for tokyo twenty twenty cara had a new view of all the action because this time around she was there as an nbc olympics. Distance analyst calling the men's and women's races from the fifteen hundred meters up to the marathon on this episode. Cara talks about how this experience compared to the trials about what her studying process was like. Which wow sounds very intense and about how she worked on pronouncing every name correctly she also shares the one thing she said on air that kept her at night. Kerr talks about getting choked up as molly seidl was coming in for the bronze in the marathon in about why she could not let herself cry on air. Even though we were all crying on our couches at home anti talks about what it was like watching emma coburn one of her closest friends cover really tough race out there but having to keep it together because while she was on air. This conversation is filled with interesting insights and fun stories. And i just know you're gonna love it so please join me in welcoming cowher back to the alley on the run show for the fifth time. All right cara. Gouge is back a fresh off the broadcast at the olympics. Cara thank you so much for coming back. I'm so excited we get to do this again. Welcome back to the alley on the run show base. I noticed this our thing like you know it'd be great sometime. We actually just like hung out together. Yeah in person. I think actress like twenty twelve or something at mile love. I like wow like. I really liked. Were we always best conversations like like that record but also before mike we should just like hang out but yeah someday we'll be able to do that. It would be great if this pen could fully end and we could just like come out to colorado because any has not been on plane yet. I was so that mom that was like we're going to travel with her like when she's young and so it'll be easy because she'll be well traveled. She has been nowhere so you know eventually. Yeah i mean some things are out of your control at this. Yeah or if anyone has a private jet they would like to lend us. I would not saints doing out there. We'll see what comes of that. We have a lot to cover today. I'm really excited to get to hear about what it was like. Being in tokyo and calling so many of those races but before we get into it. You have a new intro this time because you have a new title this time around. So can you remind everyone who you are where you call home and what you do. Oh my gosh new title. Well my name is character. I wasn't elite athlete. Now i just run for fine. I'm a mom a wife mother to four animals. Because i'm crazy and i work with alan ultra but now i also am. Distance analyst for nbc. Can you explain that role and what fell under that umbrella for the olympics. Yes so basically. All of the distance races. Oh fifteen hundred up. I'm the color commentator. So leafy is the play by play for everything so a lot of people. Ask me about this when i got home to like. He brings us into every race. He takes us out of every race and he also calls the last one hundred fifty meters of every race and so there was a lot of people that were like. Why did you. Why did you always let like. He always interrupt you. I'm like he never interrupted me. Sometimes i over set my boundaries. Because i i remember the men's five thousand. I noticed that moahmed looked really good with one hundred to go. And i just shouted it out which i'm not supposed to do So basically about everything. In between i'm mike adding commentary of like why the moves are happening who these people are background on the athletes and how they like to raise them. Just how the racist unfolding. Which job do you think is harder. Because i think they both sound incredibly challenging But for you is. Are you finding that that is your sweet spot doing color commentary or do you like the play by play stuff. No no no. No i am very some of my coworkers like they have dreams of moving up or doing that. I have zero dreams of doing that. I think if i did this again i am definitely my sweet spot. I i actually love working with lee. I think he's a really good play by play. I liked it. I liked that he says so such lead and then i get to say why they took the lead. I am super happy and comfortable in my little role that i have. And it's my understanding. I believe you shared at one point in terms of this specific role with the olympics that you had said i wanna be away from my family for as little time as possible. So can you sort of explain what that looked like him. What that meant for your role. Yeah originally supposed to be in japan for three weeks. And i was like. I can't do that. I have already missed two weeks of my son's summer. And so i got it down to two weeks. So essentially i was the last person from nbc to arrive in tokyo on the track and field production side. And i arrived tuesday night and then wednesday thursday. We had rehearsal and then friday at started. Typically i would have gotten there earlier. I would have toured the venue I would shout more ideas of what. I wanted to talk louder. If there's like a special story. I wanted to tell and instead it really fell on me to communicate that via email before i got there and then of course i i got my notes later because you're not you get them onsite and you know. Sometimes i would get him on a day ahead of time but like the women's marathon. I got like late. Friday night in ahead of six. Am start so. I did feel like playing catch up a little bit but for me it worked out because i just was really homesick those first two days and then once the racist started you know we had morning sessions and evening sessions in inbetween. I was studying and once that started. It really went by fast and so for me was the best possible scenario to just get there. Forty eight hours ahead of time. Basically you're like to navigate ahead of time and then but yet everyone else was already there and there was a fourteen day south quarantine so once you hit fourteen days. If you tested negative you could go out. And like go to a restaurant or gopher ryan and so i i never you know made by fourteen day quarantine Where my co workers did. But i felt like that was. It was worth it to me to stay home longer. And did you know going into it. What exactly your role would be in terms of when you would be airing. I feel like this was the most common question. Okay so explain not of it. Because i think common confusion amongst everyone. We're all switching between like peacock and nbc gold and olympics. Finding all the places to watch and then every time without feel why am i here keurig alger during prime time. Can you explain that a little bit. Yes so i was also very confused. Everyone i thought it'd be calling every single distance race in that it would live somewhere right like if it wasn't i knew that there was a crew out of stanford that was calling for cable and i knew that was tim. Hutchinson.

"So each of you competed in both the five k. And the ten. K that five k. Had two rounds and just one giant round for the ten k Let's get into the five k. Those came first. So let's hear about the first round of the five k. Was there a race plan. What was was. Were you just kind of thinking. Like hopefully this stays pretty controlled and we can just make it to the finals. What were you at for the first round of the five k. I think the goal is to keep it as controlled as possible. And then i think jerry kind of told us like this. Make sure you have space like to move like the last four hundred to make sure you're in a good spot and he was also like that. You know turnover at the end will help prepare you guys To feel good for the final two. So i think yeah again. The goal was i think to get all four of us into the final and just try to get through running relax at that pace like keeping your eyes up for any sort of move in n. Be ready to like finish strong. The last four hundred especially the last two hundred to get those spots. We saw so much jostling early on in a lot of these races. I mean if if you watched the i think of the women's fifteen hundred the women's eight hundred like a lot of You know jostling for position and obviously in the longer races the five k. And the ten k we see a little bit less of that but is that something that you work on in practice getting off the line and getting into position. Is that something that you practice or that you just have to inherently know how to do well. I think we don't really practice that very much. I'm really bad at getting off the line and practice actually. I don't know what i'm doing. What he raises. I'm very good. I think i just need to focus

"Such a big week. Yeah i think we're both of us. I think Just having like. I mean cursor like sons she got. The team was training with shelby. But then i think you know both of training with the last year. I think that was something that i don't know. I think we really wanted to like raise with her and i think we both agree that like. She got us to where we are. Now in like just like the energy that he brings and The ability to push yourself like bring others along with her and help everyone like reach a whole new level and kind of push pass limits. They had for themselves is like so special in in something like you know like no other and so i think Yeah i think that week leading up was like really emotional. I think chris. And i In courtney being appeared to. I think and gabriella. I think it was really helpful that you know we kind of had each other to like help to stay strong in You know courtney helping us stay focused in terms of like okay. We need to focus on the trials. And even jerry. I think he was like you know the best way. You can be a good teammate. Shelby is to like go. Run your best at the trials like that is what she would want. Now give you also a platform to like talk about how you guys are running for her in supporting her and so i think like as hard as it was. I think we kind of like had a lot of conversations of like okay. How can we kind of switch our perspective in use this for like good right now in like really be our best for her. And how hard was that to do to. Actually you know. I i feel like it's easy to say like all right. We just got a focus but like that's hard because we are humans and that is something very close to you. That's happening so i have to imagine that Your phones were blowing up when the news broke and that you're probably like hearing from people you haven't talked about him forever for your thoughts and opinions and so how did you handle that. How was it. Overwhelming definitely overwhelming. I think it's also exciting that we got a lot of support to We weren't really expecting some of the people that did like you know. Reach out and support us. And i think got a lot of credit to pratt. Environment is to be able to Like really support shelby and let her tell her story before. Everything came out. And i think everyone's been really in support because we know who shall be as and It's just been it's been hard though too 'cause like obviously you have support but then you have nasty messages to and shelby's like family to never someone says something bad into your family member. You just get so sad. It really affects. You mentally just affects you more than you think it would. Were you worried about how it would affect the the team while you were at the trials in terms of you know. I hate to say like putting a cloud over bauer men or making people ask questions about the other members of the team because like you said people are going to do that. the internet is a wonderful place for unfiltered thoughts Was that on your mind. Yeah i mean extremely worried. Even just that People would just put so much. Focus on shelby in the trials. In like there's so many good races in so many good stories out there During this time. And i i think the last thing she would even want is to have that those moments stolen from people. And we're not trying to do that. I think we're just we know that there's an innocent athlete out there. That's being punished. And we just want to make people aware of that. So when you each arrived at hayward field and you know kind of stepped into the arena and all of the excitement of the trials. What were you where were you at mentally. Were you able to just kind of shut off everything that had come out and happened and focus on your racing to take a little work. What was bring us today. One of the trials day. Oh gosh while like three months ago it was just like he has so many emotions I've never competed at the trials before. And i know like elisa's never competed. Where like you know. Like really i in for a spot on the line and i think we both just like had you know five years to prefer this then you have so many nerves and just so much pressure that you almost have to like disregard everything just treat i another race because if you think about all that stuff you just get so overwhelmed and i think we did. I mean everyone on our team did a really good job of that just like putting their best self to the line and just like not thinking about the pressure. Not thinking about Everything going on with our team right now. Just focusing on your race in the task at hand did you do any like bonding activities either. The day before the trial started early on like. Is there a baron chat club pasta party the night before any like anything altogether should definitely we didn't but i think i think those other special thing is like especially with half the team being at sea level. I think it kind of felt like a reunion. Like getting to see you know vanessa gwen and like the four of us were all in the same Pre limb heat. Which i think as chris oh is saying like made it easier to kind of think about it as practice especially in the pre limb round of like okay. Let's try to control the nerves in like work all together and get all of the finals. I think being in the same he in like Warming up altogether and working together in that race. Like i think really helped As well as knowing like okay. There's four of us all from government in this race in again kind of like being reunited with them and gwen always has good stories about stanley. Not met like premium the day before which is always always helps. Keep the mood light. Yes so talk about the things that we don't see so the stuff that happens before you step on the track because all of us at home we see the races we see the interviews after but we don't see any yeah like premium staff. We don't see any of the meetings where you're being given instructions or anything like that. So is there anything that happens before you toe the line that we don't know about i feel like we're all like so nervous like a lot of our like creating like even just like our warm-ups are like super giggly nervous like everything's like very lighthearted and I like just like funny. Just like i feel like we're all just like catching up so so each of you competed in both the five k. And the ten. K that five k. Had two rounds and just one giant round for the ten k Let's get into the five k. Those came first. So let's hear about the first round of the five k. Was there a race plan. What was was. Were you just kind of thinking. Like hopefully this stays pretty controlled and we can just make it to the finals. What were you at for the first round of the five k. I think the goal is to keep it as controlled as possible. And then i think jerry kind of told us like this. Make sure you have space like to move like the last four hundred to make sure you're in a good spot and he was also like that. You know turnover at the end will help prepare you guys To feel good for the final two. So i think yeah again. The goal was i think to get all four of us into the final and just try to get through running relax at that pace like keeping your eyes up for any sort of move in n. Be ready to like finish strong. The last four hundred especially the last two hundred to get those spots. We saw so much jostling early on in a lot of these races. I mean if if you watched the i think of the women's fifteen hundred.

"Welcome to the alley on the run show. I'm your host alley.

Why did we do what we do. And how does getting sweaty factory in today. We've got another olympic track and field trials episode. Oh man i hope you're enjoying means as much as i am. I mean we go from having pretty much zero races for a year to this to ten days of action. Well i know to rest as in there so eight days of action and what a way to get back into things today. You know them. You love them. You heard from them here recently. My guest today. Our newly minted olympians elise cranny and charissa schweitzer. Elise and chris both run professionally for the bauer track club and both competed in the five thousand meters and the ten thousand meters trials. They are here today to break down every detail of both of those races but the short version spoiler alert. in case. you didn't watch a lease one. The five k. and charissa took second and charisma also second in the ten days. So they're going to the olympics elise will compete in the five pay and charissa. In coach jerry schumacher have decided that yes. Chris will compete in both the five k and ten in tokyo. What a double now. Obviously you can't go into this conversation without acknowledging the fact that at least interest as baron chocolate teammate shelby houlahan tested positive for a banned substance for the trials and was served in four year suspension from the sport so she wouldn't be able to compete the trials the olympics or the twenty twenty games and i am not here to offer my uneducated thoughts or opinions on what has become unsurprisingly. A really heated topic in the sport that we love so much charisma analyst talk about shelby on this episode as her friends and teammates. And i am here to remain as objective as i possibly can on this topic. I've had shelby on the show earlier this year and we had a great time and i of course want to believe that everyone in running is clean. That is the eternal optimist in me but yes like so many of you have questions and we all have crushes. So what's my point question. I'm not here to defend shelby houlahan. I have no insider secrets. I don't know more than you do. But i wanted to put that out there and address it because obviously it comes up in this conversation. How can it not. And i wanted as much as possible to really focus on a lease ankara's because they just ran. These eight rentable raises at hayward field. So let's do this. Let's give it up for two of these facets women in the country who will be representing team. Usa later this month harissa.

"In that. Like this kind of like helping pick me up again after that. so Get back training and setting new goals and setting my sights on new things. Because i had this big dream and it didn't pan out and that was just like it. Sounds dramatically. it's heartbreaking. But it is when the sport is such a big part of my life as it is the most runners When something you worked so hard for it doesn't work out. It's hard not to feel that heartbroken and Usually i'm gonna moving on but with a child it was. It was really tough. So did there come a time that you can remember pinpoint where you went from feeling sad about the marathon trials. Too excited about the track trials. When did you turn that corner I think when. I started racing again and twenty twenty one. I think that's when i turn the corner. I was like i still when i think of the marathon trials and still thought it happened but when i started racing and started honestly feeling good too. That was another thing. When i got back. My body wasn't feeling good for a while. But in twenty twenty one. When i started doing all these races again like actually felt really good. That got me really excited and not got me like looking for a to the olympic trials and everything. After i'm like feel strong. I feel fed and i feel good. I feel like my body's moving well and that was just Like i don't know. I think that's when i turned the corner. I guess so. Tell us a little bit about what a standard week of training leading up to the trials. Look like for you standard week of train eighth so we we say we do at ten day cycle but it's not actually ten days We work out like every fourth day so we have a workout and then three days in between and then a long run is like so you might work out do a double the next day and then either medium longer on our long run day actor double again in the workout again. That's scheduled and then you get like a uv thrown in every once in a while so that's like training wise out so we do And then i think in when i was in providence leading up to the trials kind just like keeping like Trying to stay calm and relax as best as i can was like really what i was focusing on doing because i knew the fitness was there But at this point it's just like not stressing too much about things outside your control and not Keep like getting ahead of yourself in which it was hard to like. Knock it too excited in worked out with. The meat started and i was like on the second day. I was in providence watching the olympic trials. Getting so excited and feeling all these like emotions and like okay. Lie needle kind of calm. I'm not reaching for like eight more days but Yeah i think honestly just staying relaxed with the most important part of the last bit. It's so funny. You mentioned that. Because i remember being on like i don't know day. Four or something of the trials glued to my tv for the fourth straight day and scrolling. As i do have to be on every device. So i have my tv on. I'm scrolling instagram. And you posted something about like doing a workout in providence. And i was like oh my god. She's not here yet. I feel like you like an obviously you had time. It was ten days. And you're on your race alone day nine like you were good but i felt panicky and i was like i feel like she needs to get here. A lot of people said that to me like you're not there yet. But i went to life getting there too early. I don't think i kinda of do like kind of staying. Like i did like staying in providence until i had to leave because when i get there around all of like the hype and everything and i kinda like stay. I think my most relaxed. When i'm able to kinda like tune all of that out and when i'm not there it's easier to do so But yeah towards the end though. I actually did wanna get there like all right. I'm ready to being eugene. Funny so many people are like do not there yet and i'm like everyone else panicking about this. They should get there. We were just worried. You just wanted to make sure you mean it's funny. A lot of people come and that so were you watching many of the races from home before you hang on. I was like is hard. Because i actually. I know so many runners. So i was like all right. Let's just like relaxing watching these races. But then i'd be watching them. And i'd have to go to bat after i couldn't sleep because i just watched like like i watched like the women's like five k. Like rachel schneider is like a friend of mine seeing her. The team got me really excited and then watching like we was women's fifteen. I think i was in providence for that weight. Maybe i can't remember those actually an eugene. I get so excited or watching the women's steeple. I got excited. But then like i don't know when i saw the fall i was like for some reason. I don't even know leah. But i was like i can't watch that. She was just so hard. I think you know the other athletes go through and like to get to that starting line and like give yourself a chance and being contention. It's hard not to like. I don't know you can almost feel for all the athletes out there Even the ones you don't know that well but the exciting to watch. But i did not like being at the end so okay. So you're race was on saturday. So what day if you remember. What day did you get to eugene. I think i flew to portland tuesday. It's quite a trek going from the east coast so it was like a five hour. Forty minute flight from boston to portland so my sister drove me up to the airport in boston. Which was an hour. And then i flew from Boston portland stay the night there. And i think i got down in eugene on wednesday. I think maybe got an eugene on thursday. I can't remember now a couple of days prior though not yeah you had been and then did you watch any of the races in person once you got there no. I didn't watch any of them in person but so the the first time seen the stadium was on race day. Okay so what was that. I mean gosh. We all got to see that gorgeous stadium on our. Tv's tablets phones wherever we were watching. What was hayward field like in person. It's is incredible. There's incredible as it looks on. Tv and also amazed by lake the warm of area in like the caller room like they take him to this car. And you have this huge stretch of like Of track to like these strides on and like if air condition. It's really nice like everything about that. Stadium is just like incredible but then walking onto the stadium the click. Wow this is this is really cool so once you arrived. How were you feeling. Both physically and emotionally. I think i felt better. Actually once i got there. I think the last week or two before a big race i get kind of like antsy like and like i said after work. I'm staying relaxed and calm. Klay dislike wanna race. They wanna i wanna get to the start line. But once they got there actually was like It was nice 'cause. Shane met me there and i wasn't with him. So it's kinda nice. We kind of got just go for runs and relax leading up to the race and the actually. I felt pretty good once. I got there yet. Nothing nothing stands out nothing. I can remember for there any workouts in your build up that you remember that. Stick out to you that you completed and you're like hell. Yeah i did that. That's the workout. I'm going to be thinking about on the starting line like that confidence boosting workout during training. Yeah actually so normally. I don't like look back on workouts. And i'm like wow. That was a good one but When i came down from flagstaff We we went up to train. Altitude in Middle of april. Until the end of may and i came down. We did like the testing. We always do and the testing show that i got like a really good response and i couldn't. I didn't notice it. The first two weeks down from flagstaff. I did a race. And i follow okay but my legs felt kinda like sluggish and But i'm like it's something like.

"Feel like i was able to put on my professional cap and sort of be objective. You don't even for me. It was even harder. Like i'm texting with the day of the race. And i wanna from my nbc. Had i want to ask her. What the race strategy is. But as a friend. I'm like that's wildly inappropriate. You know so. I think that was a little tricky for me. Like even texting with her sister and i wanted to ask but then i was like no. That's inappropriate like that's a line. You can't cross I think like nbc focuses. A lot on. Emma coburn because emma coburn is a world champion and an olympic medalist. And so it's it's for me. It's it's so fun. Because they are focusing back on her a lot. And yeah. But i mean obviously like i love. Emma and i would have been absolutely devastated if she didn't make the team. I can't i can't be like oh it doesn't even matter. You know i'm totally professional. I wanted her to run really really well. I was super excited to see her. Break the record. But i do try as hard as possible to just like i mixed a you know. Get in that zone. Where i am as a fan. I'm just excited to see people doing incredible things. So let's go back to day one or day. I don't know day zero day. Negative one because you brought it up earlier about how obviously having this role meant wearing the nike shirt being at hayward field which may as well just like have a giant swoosh over the top of it like it is nike town. Even if it's not labeled as such officially you have been anyone who's who knows you heard you on this show or on your own show knows about your history with nike. So you said you're able to put that aside for the role of course but arriving at hayward in walking into that did it trigger anything in you or i don't know what was that like. Yes and that's why again. I'm so glad. I did the show in april because in april. We got like a private tour. We got to go through all this stuff. There's there's so much under the stadium. There's even like a huge history museum under the iron tower and a lot of it was centered around my former coach and former teammate. And i got back to my hotel room. And i was crying so hard. I was like shaking crying. I was definitely upset in called adamy. Talk me off the ledge. Who's like you're the olympics. And that you know he's like you're the only prison strong enough to do this. You can do this. Don't let don't let that affect what you could be and so again like. That was another reason why that i show is so important because when i went back i had already experienced that and i was like. I'm here to do a really good job for these athletes. And i think if if that was my first time arriving at he word and i saw like my former coaches giant photo in the stadium. That would have felt really upsetting. But i had already been through that so it. That doesn't mean it's not weird. You know what they set us. All up at the nike employee store with a huge budget. And i'm like they're like do you want wanna be driven up the car..

"Freddie Coleman on Freddie Fitzsimmons on ESPN Radio, the ESPN after inspection Channel eight. I think the Tampa Bay Lightning scored again. In case you're missing it. You're not missing much Game five of this series against the New York Islanders in the Stanley Cup semifinals. Series tied at two about the big 32 in favor of Tampa Bay is the third period they have an eight Nothing read. I'm not making that up. Tampa Bay has eight. The Islanders had nothing. Nathan Nada. When it comes to goals being scored in this game, they're about to go 32 in the series, by the way all time There are two and two all time winning a game five. They're about to be 32 and about to lead the series 3 to 8. Nothing lead over the Islanders in the third period of that game. That was over the minute that the linesman dropped the puck. In that one. Speaking of things that get excited about or maybe not get excited about That brings us to the Olympics. They start on July 23rd in Tokyo. Lot of conversation where there's so many people whether they're in the press. Weather in parts of government, although not saying it out loud or even the general public that don't believe That the Olympics should happen in Tokyo. With the whole pandemic still going on. It's taken has been retreated a little bit, but still it is out there now getting athletes from so many different places from all over the globe. Coming together. They're going to have fans in attendance. What it's going to be domestic fans, meaning fans are already living in the country of Japan. And I put it out there on Twitter and as it hit me on Twitter, and I said, What is your excitement level? When it comes to the Olympics, And as I said, I'd be more excited if it just if the women completed only against the women, So do we know where that conversation is going with them? The one thing I'll say about the Olympics and watching the Olympic time trials when it comes to track when it comes to swimming. It does generate that heat inside me. I've always been a huge huge Olympic fan. But more than ever before. Especially in basketball, where a couple of guys is that they're going to play, Kevin Durant said. He's going to represent the United States and Olympics. James Harden is going to do the same thing. Ben Simmons on defense with Australia. One with so much going on. And the Olympics being delayed for one more year. Wonder how much of that has lessened the excitement when it comes to what people normally have when it comes the Olympics and also think a big part of that lesson of the excitement. Is the fact that eight it's over in another country in Japan, and it's not here in the United States and be people have been so waiting for summertime. In this country have been not having this summer that everybody wanted to have last year because of the pandemic. Then you get ready for fall when it comes to football when it comes to college football when it comes to high school football. I wonder how much of that has lessened the impact and less than the excitement. When it comes to the Olympics and believe me any time you have potential stars playing, especially with pros playing in basketball Nicola Yoke is playing for Serbia. Luca Dot is going to play for Slovenia. Christophe Sport, Zynga's will try to rebuild his life in his game playing for LA via not to mention United States players. Usually a lot of times that gives people a little bit excited to see that But I wonder how much a real life has really been able to intrude on the Olympics, especially being the late a year and happening in Tokyo, Japan. That's one that has been able to run through my mind watching the excitement of the Olympic trials, especially the track and field trials happening right now at the University of Oregon at Hayward Field. It's been tremendous seeing how Allison feel is about to go to 1/5 Olympiad, one of the great sprinters in the history. The United States and also in the world. I wonder how much a real life is really affected so many different things, especially when it comes to the Olympics where people like, Look I just want to have my summer. Get a chance to go out. I get a chance to be around my family. I get a chance to be around my friends. Whether I've been vaccinated or not vaccinated. I want to have my summer back. I did not happen have last year, especially Olympics in a different time zone. They may not get the kind of ratings that they've been looking for because the excitement may not be there. Because other people have things to do that they want to do you don't believe me. Take a look at the NBA ratings last year when they had the bubble environment that the NBA championship in September and leading in October. In August and September and people like that NBA this time of year. I'm good. I got other things I want to think about. I wonder how much of that Could affect the Olympics, especially being a year away a year removed. You know, you have Simone Biles and other people will be part of it. It may not have that excitement. A lot of people want to have or that the Olympics believe they deserve, especially when it happens one year later. Always glad to join you.

"Ties to the European Union. The Brexit transition period ended officially on New Year's Eve. After months of negotiating a new trade deal. The U. K voted to leave the European Union in 2016 that took place January 31st of last year, but both sides agreed to keep many things the same until the end of 2020. They negotiated new terms on a new trade deal. Joining us now to talk more about Brexit. And what this could mean for the U. S. Is Michelle Egan. She's a professor of American history in Washington, D C and focuses on comparative politics and political economy, Professor. Thank you for being here. Thank you very much for inviting me. So a lot of people are watching this and they probably thought the UK already left the EU. But this has actually been has actually remained. So what has changed? Well, what happened is that after four years of endless discussion in British politics, the British finally left the EU and they've actually negotiated a deal with the EU and a lot of things on January. The first will change primarily for British citizens traveling on also full British business, You know, they'll face uh You know a bit more tariffs a bit more people were a bit more red tape in exporting to the You remember the British have been a member of the EU for 47 years, So it's like extracting yourself in terms of the divorce after 47 years. It is. That's a good way to put it so briefly catch us up on the genesis of Brexit how we got here. And why wouldn't the UK want to be part of the U. Yeah, I mean, one crust ask, you know, because this is the biggest trading partner. You know, the U is a market of 500 million people and consumers. But the British have had a very sort of awkward relationship at times with the EU. I think they felt that it had become a little bit more federal than they would like. And Ah, lot of the discourse in British politics has been about global Britain getting sovereignty back and they've decided they want more sort of autonomy than they actually want. Don't market access, So it was sort of political choice very much driven by the conservative Party politics, So a lot of this was not really about do we like the EU? Do we? Not like the EU? Ah, lot of it was trying to deal with the different factions in the British Conservative party. A lot of them were much more. Shall we call it sovereign tests? Okay, So ah, Lot of our viewers are wondering how does Brexit affect Americans and the rest of the world outside Europe? Absolutely. I mean, if you are a U. S citizen and you're traveling sort of to Britain, you know, a year from now Post Cove it you're not going to find a lot of difference. One difference, I think is if you take a pat and you go into the U K and then want to go into Europe, then there will be a lot more paperwork. It won't be easy. The second thing I think you know, when we think of going into your we often think about we have to have a passport and one of the issues. That you will find out is that you will probably be standing in line with you citizens, and they will also have to go through the same to you, as we say in Britain, so I think the lines may get longer to get through passport control for business for American business. It actually matters because you know, a lot of American investment has been in Britain, you know, just like New York and the stock exchange in the financial markets in New York and also in Chicago, You also have the city of London and Lot of American companies have been anticipating the last four years on about actually moved from staff. Some assets and resource is in the financial sector into the rest of the EU. So that's sort of what we're looking at. And right now the U. S. And the UK have been negotiating a trade deal of free trade agreement. We've been talking about Master and USMC a but quietly behind the scenes. The U. S and the UK under the Trump Administration have been negotiating a free trade agreement, and that's going to continue into the Biden administration. I was just that was my next question. I was gonna ask you about how this impacts trade because that's really where we're going to see the effects of Brexit, right. Absolutely, And you know, a lot of this sort of economic analysis has said this is kind of gonna have a negative effect on UK Gross and you know, UK trade but you know, it's also going to be very regionalized because Britain has sort of levels of regional inequality. It also like the U. S has different sort of economies in the different parts of the country. So a lot of the concern was that were a service economy. We're not a manufacturing economy anymore. And so ah, lot of the services were not included in this free trade agreement with the U. So some people think that that may be a long term cost for Britain. And briefly last question. You mentioned all that red tape and they're also be new regulations to navigate. Do you think the countries involved are ready and prepared? Um, yes. And no. I think you know, Scotland and Northern Island in particular. You know, both were very concerned about not being involved in any of the negotiations because it came out of London. Ah, lot of the information to businesses has been coming out in the last month. And so businesses to some degree we're waiting on Willoughby. A deal will let not. How could we can prepare? How not? I think there's a transition period. For about 4 to 6 months. But a lot of small businesses are gonna have a lot more paperwork to do, and the biggest issue will be. How will we deal with Northern Island because it's part of the EU single market, but its sovereignty is part of the U. K. So it has this real kind of almost You know Janus faced by for Kay did it looks one way for the economics of one way for the politics, Professor Egan. Thank you very much for breaking it all down for us. It's a complicated issue, and we're happy to have you. Thank you very much. The delay of the 2020 Olympic Games has impacted many communities, expecting an economic boost from events leading up to the Games polices places like Eugene, Oregon, where thousands were expected for the U. S track and field trials before the coronavirus set in. News Nation reporter Meriel edible Laura's has more on the impact. In the Pacific Northwest sits track town USA, Eugene, Oregon, the birthplace of Nike and home to the prestigious Oregon Track Club. We are a track loving community. Lucy Venice is the mayor of the city of 171,000. When the Olympic track and field trials roll around that number increases by 15,000. There's a bustle. Certainly around Hayward field when that's going on, but also a bustle in our downtown Venice says the news of the postponement was deflating and disappointing. We look at the 2016 track trials raised about $37 million, so it zbig revenue impact, however. I was kind of relief because I wasn't sure how we were going to manage that safely. Those feelings are echoed by two Olympic hopefuls training in Eugene, Sabrina Sutherland and Chanel Price. Initially, I was like, Oh my gosh, another year waiting to raise the price and Sutherland lived together, train together and compete against each other Well, and that support of energy is only matched by locals and fans were in a.
"hayward field" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Night. Do they wish they had a do over. They had more time more time to think about it. And and I stood with Jason Heyward. As you know, from what we know. And Jay says he's gonna try and join us on Monday, So I'm having a microphone problem currently. So I just spare with me. Yeah. Okay. Let me look on twitch. And remember, you could join us on not only by listening on ESPN 1000 in the ESPN Chicago app you can watch. Waddled try to deal with his limp microphone at Twitch TV just switched over. It's not limp. It's just not turning on. He's not getting any production out of it. So the functionality of the exercise the problem, you know, it needs to be looked at by a doctor. I need to see that, like so welcomed everyone in the twitch chat room today. That's the thing like That's cool about twitch. It's what I've always liked about Twitter to. It's a good way to interact with our listeners and find out what's on their mind. Twitch is cool because you could see in Realty. I'm as I watch Waddle try to deal with his microphone. And he's already like Wanda has a problem and an engineer just comes running. It gets a lot of it has been here all day stuff. No, no, no, no. This has been going on for a while. Now we're trying to get the equipment up to speed brother. If I was in there, back in the day, I got a microphone problems. Someone would say which would there's a monkey wrench in the day You would have taken one of these bobbleheads and thrown it at somebody. Jack. And if you go back in the day, yes, that would have been your behavior. Yeah, So, ah, A lot of people interacting without calling engineer Twitch That TV slash ESPN 1000 Chicago. Is where you could interact. I've got a lot of sound. I want to play with Jason Hayward Field from when he was on us like a necklace. I hate Hate hate when people preach It's really hard conversation. I mean, you see it all the time on social media, So I'm not going to preach to anybody. I'm just telling you what I felt my heart. My God, and I just felt like the Cubs should have stood with with Jason Heyward last night, but I understand what they're saying. I'll listen. I listened to their response yesterday and I want to hear from you. Did they write Make the right call at 31233237 1st response response quickly is is that that's an individual decision for them to make. Like this is different like I try to compare it. It's not an apples to apples comparison. The decision of a player going back to standing or kneeling for the national anthem, and I've always used the example Chris Long, who was definitely Supportive of of the cause. When Malcolm Jenkins, their safety took a need, Chris would put his hand on his shoulder. So They both would play the game. But they they had different approaches to the national anthem. Howto handled it, but they were. They were supportive of each other. This is different. Because There's no you know, you're either playing the game of you're not playing the game, so it's not an apple establish comparison. So I guess the point is, is that which makes it more difficult to me is is because I've always said Hey, listen. I support Chris Long. I support Malcolm Jenkins. I think that what they did in in tandem was was was Totally cool, And I think anyone you've talked to on this topic have said Listen, You don't need to kneel to support me. Just understand And don't be dismissive of my words and of my My cause and Like I just think that this is a harder determination to make because I don't believe that Anthony Rizzo and Jason Kipnis and others are being dismissive of J. Hey, but I do think you make an excellent point and with the benefit of hindsight and and how it looks and where we are right now. You're right. It just Feel right. Teo did not feels different. Especially with that guy. Yes, that guy who means so much again. The last thing we need to do is isolate. We need to be in this together and I don't know. Maybe J said to Anthony Rizzo, the other guys. Listen, I strongly wants you to play Did he did so I could Loki bats I know, but I can't. I can't fault. Anthony Rizzo and the other guys for not playing and I get what you're saying. I don't think anybody's condemning them or some people may I'm not going to condemn them. I think that you know, change is hard learning is something we still do his adults and It's difficult question to answer, but I I am I am interested to know whether or not with the benefit of hindsight that collectively they feel like They missed an opportunity to be even more supportive of Jason. Dannon Carrington. You're on ESPN 1000. Hi, Dan. Hey, guys, A Sophie. I love you, but respectfully. If this isn't you created a leg in your finger. I would hate to hear when you are because I think what you are doing to these Cubs players right now is Is disgraceful, and I think they will tell you that on Monday. And here's the thing if I was Jason Heyward and I told them the play And they did. I'd have no issue with it, so there is a bigger deal. About getting rid of the racist owner and his dad and his brother in Nebraska think that would be more to Jason than having your team owned by a family for racist When you talk about that, then Dan, it's an interesting point because of dollars and I want to give up down on the floor at 2 30. To talk about that because the history here with what they've dealt with and given second chances, too. Doesn't look good. It doesn't. There's a long line here. But again. I'm not telling Anthony Rizzo. He's wrong. I'm just telling you what I felt. My God, This is all my doing. I'm saying they played something just felt off to me about it. I thought there was the furthest thing in my opinion from you wagging a finger at anybody on Sylvia. I understand what you're saying. But also, and I said this last night with Chris and I'll say it again for people that didn't Didn't hear us last night that as a I'm not also not trying to preach. But as a Cubs fan, there has been a history in recent years. That is tough to go along with. You know, you look at from when they bought the team in the emails from the rickets and as as a Muslim how that what they said they would do and then didn't fulfill that promise, at least to me. As a Muslim and then you get into them keeping Addison Russell on the roster, and then you get into people had a problem with them bringing in Chapman and then you get in Teo. You know what they've been doing around the neighborhood and some people in hiring practices and that kind of stuff that some, you know people of unionizing and that kind of stuff that some people have a problem with there and then That was all separate, right? Like you could always be like, Hey, yeah, but that has nothing to do with Rizzo and bias and Hayward and Jon Lester and like those guys aren't part of that Those guys are separate. And now this kind of brings it together and I get it. I'm not taking away from anything that Jason Heyward said or what his players what the other players said, and how they want, Teo. Continue to play and how he wanted them to play. But I thought this was an all or nothing thing. I thought that as a team, either we all go or none of us golfer one about the guy who led them. In the rain delay speech in Game seven of the World Series that they might have had his back and I'm not saying that they didn't have his back because he said that they did, and he wanted them to go play..
