Hey, Remember the Olympics?

"For many sports, the Olympics is the apex of what they can achieve as athletes, and it's a chance for the world to see incredible incredible athletes out there on the world stage. My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

Remember the Olympics?

"I'll be the first to admit that I am not a huge sports fan. I don't follow the NBA and I tend to wander away from the TV during Football Games, but I do love to watch the Olympics, and that's because it's actually super cool to see whole nations rallying behind one team. It becomes something more than a game. It becomes this uniting cultural moment. It's like a global holiday, and so with a little bit of extra couch time on my hands I was very ready to tune into this summer's Tokyo Olympics the perfect distraction. But the July twenty twenty Olympic. Games aren't going to be held this month. They've been postponed by a full year. This decision wasn't made lightly. And in fact, Japan is working around the clock to try to figure out how to keep their games. Despite a global pandemic, it's part of a long story for decades. Just like their athletes. Countries have competed fiercely to host the Games despite mounting evidence that they usually represent a significant financial loss, and that made us ask why, if not money, what's the games offer that so special and worth so much effort I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today, the Olympics soft power and the deep running politics of the World Games.

"The lead supported by light box ever heard of lab grown diamonds lab. Grown diamonds are essentially chemically identical to natural ones just made in a lab at light box. They've hacked the process to grow gorgeous stones every time it starts with a tiny piece of lab grown diamond heated up in a plasma reactor to temperatures nearly as hot as the sun after about two weeks. Those little seeds grow into full stones. Now here's where it gets really interesting. Light Boggs lab. Grown diamonds aren't just made the same every time they're also priced the same. Each carrot is eight hundred dollars mind blown even cracked the science of colors. You can sparkle in pink white and blue. Check them out at light bucks. Jewelry DOT com slash lead in use code lead for twenty five dollars off. That's LIGHTBULBS JEWELRY DOT COM SLASH LEAD. L. E. A. D. and use code lead for twenty. Five dollars off. Can you walk us through the rather wild drama of the last forty eight hours? Starting with Sunday morning the ICEES executive balls held mostly meeting. The International Olympic Committee opened the door to a postponement on Sunday. When it said a final decision would be made within the next four weeks but it added that a cancellation was not on the agenda. This belated admission really. They couldn't ignore what was happening in front of their eyes. It will. What will all of us are experiencing around the globe? They ignore any longer. Four months is not that long away and we really do now have to talk very very seriously about this finding this thing and just the day before that emergency meeting. Ioc President Thomas. Bach had pushed back against the idea of postponing in an interview with a German radio station or for sure. Currency Niche for Schieber. I'm forced bunch. Elam Knicks is. I'm Scott he said quote. You can't postpone the Olympic Games like football match next Saturday. Well I think that that does speak to this. Beside did the Olympic Games are different. You know you can postponed football games. All Oh basketball leagues or whatever it might be. I think this is Thomas Beck who is so steeped in the IFC and all of its Self-aggrandizing nonsense symes the different special and we will not be rushed and pushed into this. The lights pretend that they're sort of almost like the holy Roman Empire or something and the everything has to be decided in triplicate and We'll have these long long sessions. Well pressure had been mounting on the I O C to make a decision on the Olympics for quite some time. Can you explain before Sunday? What that pressure had been hit launched come from the athletes? I felt clearly. It was coming from broncos sponsors as well probably more privately. It was coming from the National Olympic Committees in the US. The two largest sports had already made their face pretty clear track and field and swimming so I think it was. It was a bit of a perfect storm for the is seeing that you had the people that they feel they serve the athletes saying hold on. This is right. I can't try. This doesn't feel right to me. And at the same time you had if you like their key commercial partners broadcasters and sponsors saying pretty much the same thing and then on Sunday night just a few hours after the statement. Canada makes a very bold statement of its own in a move that happened late last night and has set off reaction around the world. The Canadian Olympic Committee announced Canadian athletes will stay home this summer. Cb FOLLOWED BY USTRALIA. Decision is that. They announced the agreed. The Australian Olympic team could not be assembled in the changing circumstances. Both here and abroad. What impacts do you think that had on the I o see this is the existential fair for the ISI is sort of part of their institutional. Memory they are terrified of anything that looks sounds like a boycott and so must back actually feels is very very personally himself. He was a fence. He was a very good fencer. He wanted gold in nineteen seventy six with West Germany and then didn't get to go to one thousand. Nine hundred. Eighty didn't get to go to defend his goal because of the boycott around the Moscow Olympics following the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan so this they Arab boycott is fair of athletes. Not Coming is pretty much the most serious thing that you can sign the say. So when candidates said that way no straight-set that Great Britain have been strongly. Hinson yet other nations have been strongly hitting it. The I was going to listen well. And why do you think Canestrelli felt compelled to do that and not just follow the? Isis's lead? That's a good question. Canada and Australia all FUSECO stick pawners of the. Ifc's they go to games. They symbolic delegations of athletes. They bid for things they they matter. Okay maybe they don't have the big brawl costea and commercial half the the the. Us would have or Mega Germany even Russia but they are significant pleasant. The that's the thing is also a a real tradition in both of those countries in particular of sort of Africa empowerment of letting their athletes speak up home political issues. There's certainly no kind of top down shish staying Elaine type philosophy in those countries so I think it was a combination of being Western democracies and having A tradition of letting athletes speak and the fact that they are very very much involved normally Olympic sport they are. They are Olympic nations. Do you think it's the responsibility to have made this decision? More swiftly without countries like Canada and Australia feeling the need to make these moves on their own well. This policy had some logic to. It's about a month ago. Opposes outbreak of this brand new virus in China at a pace be quite localized? The Chinese pates throwing absolutely everything. That's it it. It looks like that containment policy could work. Singapore had done something similar South Korea Taiwan so there was some encouraging signs in the region that could paps contain this. And don't forget the this part of the world has been through these more recently than the rest of us with avian flu with SAWS and I think Japan was hoping look if China can get get get a grip if we can contain it in all in our region. The summer we still far enough away all those things combined to. We don't need to make decision yet. Let's to see his plays out. We could be okay. WoN'T BE CRYING OUT FOR. A sporting festival this summer. I just think that that will change soon as it hit Europe and as soon as we saw to gallop away Iran Spain France now in the states now everywhere and people dying everywhere. And we're looking at these scary offs that that Russian Al. That logic just fell away going to begin his look slow. It has looked like it is trying to sort of ignore the obvious. And it's been on the road at when everyone else. He's saying though. This could feel right well and then on Monday USA. Today's Christine Brennan spoke to Dick Pound a veteran member also from Canada and he said quote postponement has been decided and that the details of that postponement is what will be hammered out in the next four weeks. Well Dick Pound is Is every journalist's favorite say member for a few reasons one is the he answered the phone and he gives you. He speaks the truth if Russia makes another proud display. Anything like this at the closing ceremonies. Dick Pound for one won't watch. Why would I go to closing ceremony? Where they haven't even been allowed participate as Russians but now they're arching triumphantly. Somebody else.

Coronavirus-driven Olympics postponement looking more and more likely

"Christine Brennan she wrote a story today about why the Olympics should be postponed and spoke to influential member of the IOC Dick pound out Christine there's some confusion in reading your story I thought the Dick pound was essentially announcing postponement but in talking to Marty make being who as the the head of Canada's team and and and discussing what their reaction to it was it certainly sounds like many athletes are still waiting for official word after these four weeks and are being left in limbo about whether July twenty fourth could still be a possibility they're enjoyed greatly with you guys certainly there can be confusion and I'll clear up my end of if there is any with you and love to be on I always love being on your show thanks so much for having me I think I did that journalism on a one I picked up the phone and call someone I've known for thirty years Dick pound Richard pound of former vice president of the international Olympic committee the longest serving member of the international Olympic committee lives in Montreal a lawyer there it's covered him and written stories about him for years and a very influential members of the I. see to this day at seventy eight and he told me point blank this on the basis of the information the IOC has postponement has been decided his Dick pound continuing on the parameters going forward have not been determined but the games are not going to start on July twenty four fourth that much I know this is Dick pound is not giving the official word but he is an IOC member as I said the longest serving and he knows what's going on and just so you and your listeners know I'm pretty thorough you know good old said northwestern Medill school of journalism product type but I kept it on the phone for thirty minutes we went back and forth I read him a quote I listen some more I read his quotes again I told him how significant this was at the moment we broke this story for USA today and that this would be a very big deal he understood the procedures in these incredibly with and I'm not saying he's not at about seven or eight times I went over the quote exactly verbatim yes yes yes absolutely a hundred percent there was no doubt in my mind when I hung up that I had it exactly right I believe what's happened since since there is there been a few people he's done some other media interviews where you may be upset I think this is going to happen but I double check that with him when I saw those and he said no no no I was misquoted it is going to happen but to your point about others that they haven't yet heard officially because the official word from IOC president Thomas Bach or the Japanese organizing committee has not yet come but I'm very convinced it's going to come to Christy the article is incredibly informative answers a lot of questions that I had and I love the headline it said as much as it hurts postponing Tokyo Olympics is what's needed you could lift postponing Tokyo Olympics it pertains to pretty much everything we're all experiencing across the world as much as it hurts it's what's needed and speaking of the tough decisions I'm curious how much did Canada how much did Australia how much that even the U. S. have been kind of forcing the hand of the Olympic committee to rethink these things that come to the decision that they made today in terms of postponement of Jordan Thomas Bach on March fourth and so the president the IOC on March fourth held a press conference after a board meeting and basically said the words postponement and cancellation did not come up and went on and on basically kind of say all we always have problems you know Zeca and and boycotts and whatever and you want me to name more things and what kind of flip about it all March fourth it's not that long ago if he'd come out then and said I get it I know that this is an issue obviously by this point it really is in terrible trouble of course China you know other other Iran we know because every season we know corona viruses coming and he was he just handled it so poorly and what's really surprising Thomas Bach is the first Olympic gold medalist to be president of the international Olympic committee the international of the committee is a bunch of old the oldest of the old boys the elitist euro centric a lot of them are royalty or think they're royalty and here's Thomas Bach who was in nineteen seventy six Olympic gold medalist in fencing and was a victim of the nineteen eighty Olympic boycott you'd think he of all people would understand the magnitude of of what the athletes are going to he blew it on March fourth and why this happened over the last few weeks your point is that the athletes have risen up instead of from a top down decision making it's been bottom up groundswell of support athletes national Olympic committees federations for the athletes of certain sports all of them coming together to force the

"What is your understanding and interpretation of the data and science and all of a sudden. Yeah right yeah. Data's cheap is the analysis and understanding with flip. Through with what you do with it and give me here. We go Rach Tillack Kapur says. I don't believe any of these names. You're reading well. Listen man you sound like you know what you re going. It's such a common Indian. Go all right here we go. He says his star Talk Team. Thanks for continue amazing work and making signs original my question. Is this almost every competitive? Sport has its own version of the argument of WHO is the greatest of all time will the application of AI and other technologies finally be able to give a definitive answer of who is the greatest of all time in any sport. So this would be. You'd have to in often as the case someone from yesteryear who excelled. Could they beat someone today right? Yeah so does that go on in It certainly fan interest topic whether or not you know the athletes themselves give a rat's ass but fans argue about this all the time bars someone's going to come up with some algorithm that you know they're going to claim definitively say who's best athlete. I think it's even just within a sport. The debate is so incredibly hard because we just talked about performance technology on the athlete. You know you've got better ways to train now through technology got better analytics on You know better. Bats balls in so athletes in general have more resources at their fingertips so they should be getting better faster stronger. More efficient more lean but then to compare by sport. I mean someone's GonNa have to do the waiting and say while hockey player has x Y Z. We should wait relative to a swimmer. That I think is all subjective amply if whoever's GONNA break it's GonNa be objective okay. I get that gut the problem with the the. Who's the greatest of all time? Because it's which who do you respect which sports what I think the way you do that is you. Say how great were you in your day relative to other players sport. I think that's smart. But how would they then rank swimmer to a hockey player compared to a soccer player footballer? Well then I don't think you could do it and also true you're definitely going to have a bias and even if you write an algorithm that algorithm is going to reflect the buys that you have for the sport without a doubt. Let's build. Ai. They'll have its own. Ai Bias. All right right Chris. Cherry is in Queensland. Australia is on instagram. Hi Angela Hi Neal. My question is the new technology making sport more difficult for poor countries to be competitive. Ooh county or Cobb. County full delayed his tech. How can they be expected to compete at the highest levels all excellent? And what about that? What they said this to your Olympics talking about an Olympic yeah. Yeah I think it's one of the best questions. There's over two hundred and five National Olympic Committees in the world. There's a forty or fifty international federations. They come from everywhere. Different socioeconomic backgrounds different access at the end of the day. Do I WANNA see Technology? Making the richer better or tech in my head should level the playing field. Should everyone should have access to this information? The suit shouldn't be so expensive. That only the rich countries have access to it. So I think it's philosophically right now. Yes I do think. The professional organizations are the ones that can afford a lot of this technology to help their athletes perform better. But I think in the future just like any technology it gets more accessible more cost-effective through time as it grows and scales and that's what I love to see an Olympic athletes. That's about like you should be able to a gold based on who you are and how you train not what you can afford. Is it happening absolutely? I mean that's why we see everyone with a new product goes the NFL the Premier League. Or The you know the biggest organizations to sell I and not you know the National Olympic Committee of you know X Y and Z. But in the future. That's why I love what we're doing is some of this technology we're talking specifically about the athlete. Should allow broad access and brought information a wearable used in the right way should be at a price point that everyone could track their heart rate and benefit from it. If they used the information correctly so I don't know if I'm answering group I'm reminded the opposite of that was rocky versus. Drago's had all the Russian technology labs and rockies. Just you know shops in me and screaming for a three-run fulfill Dopey Yang. Okay by the way this thing about Angela exactly what you said. There's a point where technology however flashy it is when it first comes out with only access by rich people. There's a point where the technology commodities right to then it gets spread to the masses and in fact usually when it first comes out. It's not very good. How it's nobody's likes the cellphones. They sucked a sucked. Okay and once they became commoditised there's economic value to making it affordable to as many people as possible. So I'm just echoing the point. You made that you're absolutely right technologically. That this that's the Ark of technology. Yes he rich people have at first but ultimately it works out so you and you want at least the price point to be accessible to the poorest of nations and and and not maybe the Olympic the International Olympic Committee could have a pot of money just to help countries come along that they do. Okay okay all right all right so here here we go. It's me on. We says the say Dr Tyson. Angela I love you guys above all else. What is the role of sports in our lives? Are we the only animals that engage in this type of behavior is the meaning of sports changing with the development of technology? And A and a are what is. Why do we do this? Why Angela? Why don't we don't? What are we ourselves by? Isn't it wait wait? Isn't it just a replacement for war? Angela what do you think I think sports is one of the most impactful ways. We can teach our children how to be good people how to learn how to work as a team. How to set goals have determination Leadership Skills Wenda. You're not you know when to step. I mean there's so many life lessons in sport best societies. In My Opinion Valley Sport makes sport accessible to everyone boys and girls. It isn't just about professionalism. I think the role of sport and leading organizations to make sure that they're not just making money but they're growing sport in the regions within all community. So love this question. Because the rule of sport isn't about Sport and entertainment. Yes that's the business. We're in most people view sport through the Lens of that. But you know here in the US we have. The instability can get a great education and any new sports across the world. It's about again teaching these life skills in a safe environment. That isn't you'RE GONNA fail. You know you can you fall and get back. Your Dad's has get back out there. I don't care if you got cut. Your mom says you got knocked over a call. The name you're going to be okay. You win a game. You learned what it feels like to succeed as a team and that's that's business that's life so royal sport. I think needs to continue to be a focal area and pet's getting cut all the time in the US privatized Boorda's privatized that is unlike the rest of the world. Where there's actually a sports minister that oversees the growth of sport and as fundamentally different way that we've structured our you know the the way that we teach our children so ro sports should be enhanced. I like tech because it makes these athletes smarter. Parents are GonNa make better decisions for their kids and ultimately would deliver a a better fan experience fan journey for those that just want to see it and be inspired and sport brings communities together. Let's not let's think about the Super Bowl. The Olympics the World Cup. It's about bringing people together not bringing people apart. And so so we shouldn't think about when they overturned cars at the end of a game that they lose. We shouldn't think about that shirt. See Out by the organizing committee cover. The cost of those people came together to flip over that car. Yeah those people were cooperating while they were riding cooperative at work that's more Association in sports issue and I totally endorse what engineers said about how powerful sport is as a tool for unification as a tool for a greater good. I'm going to end with the final question to you coming from me. Not from from the sheets on are you mother yes okay. What is your comment on the fact that kids today get medals for participating rather than for winning? The idea of losing has somehow become something that would be. Bring too much emotional stress. Upon the child and so- sports in the school systems are young. School systems are are re conceived so that everyone is a winner So I you learn more when you lose them. When you went in my opinion it actually forces you to look backwards instead of just forward but I also think that Norway's this great example Sporting Culture. Everyone plays sport for life there. They keep score of the game but they don't keep score of the winner at the end of the season. They not dissuading kids by saying you suck. You should like it's here. They're not good because they've lost at a young age not reinforced. It's okay to lose. It's okay to learn that's part of the process and so kids quit. That's what I don't like in in this win loss scenario So we got to teach kids. It's okay to fail. You're not gonNA get a trophy. I'm all for that. What we're we overemphasize winning here so I'd like to see a better balance of losing his. Okay you actually encourage you to lose. It's about what you do to respond to that loss versus. Here's a trophy. Get back out there okay. Very it is a good answer. Well Angela thank you for being on Star Talk Sports Edition. We probably want to reach out to you again.
