Human rights? China won that Winter Olympics battle. Almost.

"When three time Olympian Gus Kenworthy took the remarkable perhaps even brave decision to speak out against human rights atrocities while still in China at the Winter Games the bushy skill also proved that all the athletes have they chosen perhaps could have used the Olympic platform to pipe up to but the limitations with any qualms about chasing medals in a country accused of genocide against its Muslim Uighur population and the other abuses kept their views on these topics to themselves for the duration of their stay a perhaps the good reason they face vague but as it turned out deployed Chinese threats of punishment and constant surveillance I'm Charles de Ledesma

Washington Post Corroborates NBC's Lack of China Abuses

"Now the Washington compost is reporting that NBC which holds the exclusive broadcast rights for the Winter Olympics There's not made these issues a prominent feature of a coverage over the past two weeks And neither is the Washington compost for that matter But since the opening ceremony the post Paul farhi reported that he has been in a fine any example of an NBC Olympics announcer discussing the Chinese Communist Party's human rights atrocities I would ask Paul farhi if that is his name If the human rights atrocities by the communist Chinese against the Uyghurs and we have seen photos of these inhumane conditions and so forth have been on the cover of The Washington Post more than once or twice Far he and his piece the other day wrote that he reached out to an NBC sports spokesperson to ask for examples of the networks continued focus on these issues And it's coverage of Olympic events but beyond comments made by NBC announcers Mike Tariq and he was yanked He was yanked and Savannah Guthrie in addition to other panelists on February 4 NBC couldn't provide further support for NBC's assertion that it has extensively covered these issues Far he went on to explain that NBC also cited report a week ago about the Chinese tennis star in three time Olympian who's been the subject of international attention He noted NBC has also said it hasn't requested an interview with her Despite her presence at times just a few feet from NBC's cameras at the game So NBC has demonstrated that it is nothing more than a shill for the communist Chinese much like Thomas Friedman And much like Trudeau up in Canada the Biden family the Pelosi family the McConnell family And on and on and

Nancy Pelosi Urges US Olympians Not to Anger 'Ruthless' Chinese Government

"Dot com. It's Friday, which means we have to engage with national security with foreign policy and we do that every Friday with Jim Carrera of the heritage foundation vice president for all matters national security and foreign policy following JJ care final on Twitter. Heritage. Today's the day, Jim, it's open, the genocide Olympics. That's what Marshall when we open the show today. Let's play a little cut from the Speaker of the House. Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi, on the athletes, the Americans going to Beijing. Got to. But the Chinese government works desperately to cover up their abuses, rewriting history and projecting a very different image to the world. I would say to our athletes, you're there to compete, do not risk, incurring the anger of the Chinese government, because they are ruthless. I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that, but I also worry about what the Chinese government might do to their reputations to their families. What about our reputation, John, when the Speaker of the House says that? Well, this is the problem. This was never about we're not doing a genocide. Of course we know we're doing a genocide. The whole scam here is nobody can look us in the eye and attack us for that. And what Pelosi just oh, we can't say anything to the Chinese because they're big and mad and scary. That's empowering and that's in terms of strategic risk. That's the biggest problem with the game. We're telling the Chinese, there's no accountability for bullying everybody else. And the one thing I would really point to is the shameless smug reporting of NBC, which pretends to say, oh, we are going to address these issues head on. And they'll say, China genocide. And then they'll say, oh yeah, but the Chinese say they're not having a genocide. How could there be two sides to a genocide story? And on so many of these issues where they say, well, the critics say this and then they say, and the Chinese deny that, but many of these issues are things that are not, he said she said there is undeniable factual evidence that the Chinese are

China Lockdowns Should Give Olympic Athletes Pause

"Earlier this morning, Reuters reported what was in the Financial Times last night that they have locked down additional cities in China, including Tianjin, which is 62 miles from Beijing, zhengzhou, and Yang Jian and uzo. They say it's a Macron. I don't know we can believe on anything. Do you think Olympians ought to be going there? If I were an Olympian, I would be taken a deep breath before I'd go there. And let's face it, China is going to use the one tool that they have used consistently through this whole thing, which is massive authoritarian techniques. Everything from massive lockdowns of huge cities, economic isolations, all of that.

I love it. Yes graduate and everything. I lived in athens for seven years. Yeah oh yeah. that's what i'm talking about. Two thousand and two doesn't into your senior yea. Don't worry about it i've been. I've been talking to kids like i went to tallahassee this weekend. I got kids graduating. Like twenty four twenty. Three on my. Oh my goodness gracious. Here we go. So here's why you're on. The show is because our friend told as our mutual friend who follows you in falls me that we should be friends and i jumped on fallen you that day and it was like maybe two weeks before you went to tokyo. Yeah it was. I remember that came in and the best part of this movie like i came in and the best part of the movie. You sure did. This is awesome. Okay so were you back me up. I mean i've done my research. Because i'm perot but i also want you to tell us who you are in your life a little bit so you up. Tell me how you ended up at georgia. How'd you end up at uga. So i am born and raised here in jacksonville florida. I football. I always my i. Love is football and american athlete. Of course your i. Love is gonna be football. I did track for just to stay in shape for football I went to episcopal school. Jacksonville here in jacksonville. Florida and Just the offers. That i was getting in track. Where a lot better than when i was getting in football for football it was a bunch of d one aa schools and track. It was florida florida. State georgia the big big time schools. That you you hear about and you want to go to. And i knew how much i love pole-vaulting and just doing something myself track as individuals. So all the coaches that recruited me wanted me to do the decathlon which i had no idea what the heck i was getting myself into in the first place. I just knew it was a way to get to college. Get to the places that i wanted to be and You know just starting out. I went to georgia on sunday monday. Visit there was no one there. There is i mean it was the campus was dead. But i just fell in love with the place i mean. It was just an incredible experience. And that's how i ended up there. I mean it brings my heart so much joy the epic george over florida. Don't worry i states. And so i i actually went on a visit to florida and i gave them a chance and i just could not do. I grew up gainesville worst being here now. Blue and orange give me out of here was ridiculous. We had coach mark richt on the show last week. Who was in. Florida state came to georgia. Yeah of course. Because he was. He was a coach. When i was there. Yeah tell me about coach bowden. Tell me about coach rick. Tell me about these men that you've kinda like seen leading. Yeah i mean it's incredible you see. How many lives they've touched. And i know that they were well. Bobby was in a similar situation with having to announce them something he was going through the obviously not a lot of people have to deal with and just the response that he got and and the support. It was just incredible. Obviously use an incredible man told you before to state fan. So it was always bobby bobby bobby bobby. Remember staying with my dad watching you know what just watching football games and those are memories that i cherish and it's all led by bobby and going to georgia. I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know if i was going to turn into a georgia fan. Or what But i got to meet market a few times and just the man that he is and in the same way with bobby just the people the lives that he affected and you know my friends on the football team and i just heard how highly they speak of him and just great person he is and i mean i switched just like that. I think i went to the george. Lsu game and twenty f- fourteen and that was like that was when it happened. Exactly are we about to be national. Champions is this too early to talk about i listen. I can't comment or speculate. This early. Because i always do. It always turns out wrong. We great we look awesome. We're our defense. Looks incredible why. I think that. I mean. I think we're going to be a force is going to be hard to stop us. We just got stay out of our way. You know how georgia exactly right. We got to not cost ourselves this thing. No one's gonna take it from us. We're gonna handed over for not care for either of our lifetimes. Has georgia won a national championship. So let's this is gonna be that year. Okay pole vaulting as well where it started. This might surprise you. But i've never pull vaulted surprised. Everyone should have tried it and their childhood. And i missed out. Tell me how you started with that. Why is that the one you like so much. I was a baseball player Growing up. I used to play baseball. My brother i have one older brothers named hunter. He played baseball at florida state. So i knew that baseball was going to be his sport. It was always his sport. He was always the tall athlete. My brother's six nine. So all mine pitcher and i was so i was like five five until tenth grade so like i was like stunted knowing little kid. Just run around. You know just doing my own thing and my english teacher came to me. And he said look. You got a lot of energy. And i want to try this out with you. He happened to be the and track. Coach stamos pat crandall. And i went there in seventh grade and i never looked back like it was just it was so it was something so unique and i like doing things that are out of the ordinary and just how. I felt that i practice. There's no other feeling. Like i still remember it. It was just like. I can't believe that this is the thing and you just slowly progressed over the years to where the fact that i was really good at it. It's definitely changed my life. That's for sure i mean. Tell me about the first day. I'm just trying to picture. I'm walking out onto a field and someone says here's the poll. Now you need you're gonna throw your body up fee. I over that other poll. I don't know how you start okay. So it's different so like i'm afraid of heights team right now. I don't go on roller coasters. I don't go on like any. I can't do it like i just can't do it. But with pole-vaulting you start out so low like i mean your your seventh grader. I i only have so much flexibility..

"Did share in post after the olympics. You share that. If you had told corey mcgee. Three years ago that she'd be an olympian that that corey would not have believed you. I wanted to talk about that a bit more. Because you said that you sort of loss yourself lost hope during that time. Can you tell us a little bit more about that when you look back on that time. About what life looked like and and how you got past it definitely. I mean it. It was i definitely went through a rut for a few years and it was mostly associated with performance. Not like i wasn't happy in my life but i was going through a few years of just like stagnant performance and I think that that is pretty normal. I wouldn't say that that's something that i hadn't gone through before but really not to this degree and so to kind of go from running in college and races were sort of Consistent in the sense that i felt really good when i arrive at the sec championship. I felt really good competing in ncaa's but then of course you get to the next level. And it's so competitive. And i always have had a confidence in my competitiveness in my performance. But you just don't win as many races at the pro level. And i was i. I'm okay with that. I can wrap my head around that reality. But my times weren't improving and often the thing that i think as runners we can kind of derive excitement from and sort of uses. A measure of course is not just winning but seeing yourself improved In your times. And so i think i had four years in boston where the third year actually was pretty good but i- sustained an injury in my sacred and and it knocked me back again and so i think i sort of figured out how to make it work but then had this injury and then i gave it another year to say okay. Well if the pieces come together then this is where. I'm gonna stay and continue to train but then i went to the us championship the next year. And i was the first one out of the final. And i wouldn't say that i had this is thought of like i'm not happy. I'm not improving. But i just wasn't expecting as much out of myself so had sort of just adapted to the fact that i i had a lower standard for my own self and i think that the reason why being from a small town where running wasn't very popular and then finding my way to school with a great track team and then eventually of course running for new balance was because i've always been my own biggest like my own biggest believer And i think you kind of have to have that within yourself and not saying if you talk about it or you put it out there.

"The first thing that i actually want to get into and i think we've probably talked about this before. But can you explain to us the process of being on team jamaica. Because we know that you compete for jamaica. We also know that every country has a different way of picking their olympic teams in different sports but especially in track and field. So can you tell us how you earn your spot to get to run that. Fifteen hundred tokyo for team jamaica. Yes so jamaica has child system that is nearly identical to the us. Top three at the trials plus a qualifying mark or inacceptable World ranking on the descending order list gives you your spot to the olympics or whatever team might situation gets a bit unique. Because i am as of this moment. The only runner above fifteen hundred meters that has internationally competitive times and can hit national can hit international standards or be accepted on world ranking so often timelines. It's up to whether or not other people sign up for the trials It's it's an open system for jamaica. There are. i mean. There are standards to to enter the trials. But they're bit slower markedly slower than than the standards in the us And it's just an open registration system and it's always very hanway for me Whether or not occupied trials. I competed at the trials in twenty fifteen. I ran the fifteen hundred Even i went on to race. The siebel chase iran the shortest distance that i thought other people would sign up for which is the fifteen hundred. So did that in twenty fifteen there were three. Other competitors I won the race. And i ended up lapping. A woman in the race A masters runner and since two thousand fifteen. No-one has entered the fifteen hundred jamaica at and that means that. I have not competed at the trials since two thousand fifteen so i was just waiting on bated breath to see if anybody would register for the trials this year in the fifteen hundred so that i could go and compete at trials You know it's. It's a blessing in a curse to not have to compete at your trials. It allows me to take on other Competitive opportunities are not speaking for trials.

Can you kind of tell our listeners about the the roles of this dinner. It's kind of little a little bit different. So i wanted to figure out how to connect with these highly influential people and i realized i needed to do something completely out of the ordinary or they would never notice me so invite twelve people at a time. But they're not allowed to talk about what they do or even give their last name. They cook dinner together. And then when we sit down to eat we play a ridiculous game. We try to guess what people do professionally. And then we find out we're sitting with about laureates. Olympians editors achieve celebrities. Grammy award winning musicians. I hosted over two thousand people ranging from like the world's foremost expert on infectious diseases to members of royalty and even the voice of the dog from who let the dogs out who won a grammy for the fell. Like just ridiculous people right and it's grown into by the largest community of its type in the world of thousand members. Two hundred twenty seven dinners ten cities in three countries. Yeah it's kind of silly also not silly. It sounds awesome and this idea. You know what it's turned into. It seems like it's a little bit different than what it really starts.

I didn't wanna be networker when you look at the the research networking people absolutely hate it. I mean it's just miserable. It makes us feel dirty. But i realized doesn't make us feel dirty is making friends and being a part of a community so i figured if i could get these people not just to connect with me but with each other. Their lives would improve and so admired in the process so that was my focus. It's not just about knowing somebody but for them to know that. I know and as many of them as possible.

Who don't seem to actually like our country that plus the insufferable push to sexualize. These games have just turned many of us off. Well that's a shame because there really were a number of inspiring athletes. That were competing in tokyo. This year their performances in their stories are worth knowing and were celebrating like sydney mclaughlin after winning the gold in the four hundred meter hurdles last week. She said this what i have in christ is far greater than what i have or don't have in life. And she went on to say. I pray that my journey may be a clear depiction of submission and obedience to god. Another female runner who shocked the world was only a teenager. Adding mu won an olympic gold in the eight hundred meters as a nineteen year old. She's the first. Us woman to win the event since nineteen sixty eight and in an interview said this as a follower of christ our main goal is to live in the image of jesus in order to connect to god and then there's wrestler tamra a stock the first african american woman to win gold for the us in wrestling. Her interview after the olympics will bring a smile to the face of any american and her testimony of god's faithfulness just put it all in perspective back before the olympic. She told faith wire this. It's by the grace of god. I'm even able to move my feet. So i just leave it in his hands and i pray that all the practice my coaches put me through pays off and every single time it does mensa stock also noted that her dad well he would have been the loudest one in the room but tragically. He died in a car crash. After one of tamara's wrestling meets back in high school and he also likely would have approved of the way. His daughter responded after she won. Gold she said in an interview. That's now gone viral quote. I love representing the us. I love living here. i love it. And i'm so happy. I get to represent the usa another olympian who set a record despite incredible challenges. Four hundred meter sprinter allyson felix in tokyo. She earned the distinction of becoming the most decorated. us track star in history within medals over five olympics. however she almost didn't live to see this one she'd already won six gold medals three silvers before becoming pregnant back in two thousand eighteen faced with a choice between her career and her child. Allison chose the child and she endured a challenging pregnancy. That nearly took her life and the life of her unborn baby.

"Flame has been extinguished, signaling the end of Tokyo 2020, an event delayed one year by the global pandemic. NBC's Jim Ryan was covering the game from the empty stadiums to the quarantines to the masks on every face. Coronavirus was as much a player at the games of the 32nd Olympiad as any gymnast, swimmer or skateboarder. Given the rising covid numbers, many Japanese remained sceptical about the wisdom of hosting the Olympics outside the closing ceremony. In fact, public protests raged on, but for better or worse, the games were held over the course of 16 days, records fell, winning streaks were broken or extended. And athletes from countries as big as China and as small as Turkmenistan became Olympians. Jim Ryan, ABC NEWS Tokyo The next

"Skoda cycling academy is something we've followed on the second. Podcast feminism for a few years now school to have been partners of ours and finally gave us a very nice superb car at the third of fronts. But the academy goes from strength to strength dame. Sarah's story is the mentor they are and recently. They took in four new young writers and as part of the economy from the twenty three riders. Obviously to am develop. I cyclops and seer stories on hand to give them all kinds of tips and advice about training and racing. And so on. I've met some of the academy recruits in the past. But it's very interesting. This new intake of four m because three of them have switched sports during cuvette pandemic and in fact because of the covert pandemic and were quite used to come cyclist coming into cycling from sports site running and swimming and skiing ski jumping but but the of the latest intake. One of them was a pretty good tennis player. 'em saw that hand-eye coordination going to waste on her bike binding still carry on with the tennis but rose. You spoke to a couple of them recently. Yes i did live. Your french is a former tennis player of the hand i wore nation will be useful for grabbing a bead on an array situation. I guess i think company funding else but yeah so she's got really interesting story also maddie album gates. Who was a swimmer of swimming. Pool closed down during the First lockdown she was trying to find another outlet for for athleticism and and found cycling. Both of them inspired. I think by their fathers to get on their bikes and get out there. So really. Interesting to aspiring cyclist. Let's hear from them now monday. Yo yvo suggest joined the skhoder academy tell us about how you go into cycling in the first place thyroid. I spend swimmer until the fast lockdown and then the poos shut down. And i just decided that i had to find something else today to fill the must avoid the i five times a week and it was. It was quite a lot site. A date wanted to replace a swimming fitness lions and you know just entertainment wise. I needed something today. On that lockdown saying my daughter saw like last these vein needs to be ready on that to get is anita such come out with may if you want and say if he liked it so that we just went from there we started off doing tabby sessions. I think when we went allowed to go out for long rides to that was plunged deep and we started with quite intense. How tabby rides. Which i think due to be incidence of use to the hajj training discipline it was manageable that sage. I was really grateful for swimming for that. So based fitness and the mental ability to just put my head down and what. I felt quite well prepared for that and i did really enjoy doing. His tabby rides initially and then to get out on the restrictions. Begun to left and how you find immediately quite nifty on the by court. Today was each stocks by not being so good or not enjoying it so much until about point. We've been on family bike rides. Bangs and i'd never enjoyed cycling that much strangely until that point and then we saw sitting the hard training rides When i begun to view it as a training spoke. I could really train hauled up i. I really didn't start to enjoy it. And i love the challenge and it wasn't until the I found that in cycling out. I'm always grateful to that in a way the helping me realize i do really enjoy it and abbas code academy already done a few road races how you found that that must have must be quite a what you could deepen that stray way. Yes i did my first very dry ice. I think like a week before officially salted Okay i mean a united elite out the but the bus group at the front. It wasn't a rice foot as many attacks but it is just such a new thing to ride in a group of that size. I think noah sixty riders start and that was completely new to me. But i do do a pace reid clubs with foxy Which to me and they do really good pace training rights while you ride in a integrate and you do the same kind of rotation training that you might expect to find a rice. There is really good rice preparation so as are prepared in tons of that physically. But there's there's no much really to sign off in a group of sixty or even a hundred and twenty one hundred full. See like a classic. There's no comparison to that and it is anyway to become familiar with that and get more comfortable. That is to just do it so it. It really is about jumping in the deep end. Accelerating that you might not do that. Well outside asked even maybe for the fast gabe it is just about learning and familiarizing us up with that because it is completely different thing that you have done the fall so olivia. How did you tell us about your journey into cycling. No it's not spoiled number one passion into like the clock down in cutting actually touched by kim. Quite a few years for reasons allowed twelve.

"From all a hearing about a play by play. Just reliving those emotions. It's so easy to get caught up with the narrative at the end of the race which was seeing an mecum. Floyd certain celebrate of the on occasion hoffer winning which was totally unpredicted. What was your kind of main takeaway. Richard from from the road race. Well it was. Yeah it was great listening to oil them. Talk us through it. Because i helped me to place myself back on my sofa watching it and feeling like i knew what the outcome would be on there. Were there were just you know signs of you know the inevitability of an attacking getting away and just eating lumps of that leads an and and you know i was very much reminded of starter behind. Colosio twenty twenty the august edition. Where matvey garcia was away on the break had a big advantage there as well not quite as big as the the break in the in the olympic road-race but it is boiling as well and it looked. It looked like an upset. Might be on the cards there but when van got away we didn't get a lot of information on her chase but she just suddenly appeared. You know she just materialized in that front group and and their dreams were dashed and i kind of expected exactly the same thing to happen in tokyo. It was a challenging course. Noah's challenging as the men's road race but still pretty tough on went from booth and go away and You know the lead at that point was about five and a half minutes and i expected it to be coming down by thirty seconds with every time checks or thing and not wasn't happening stabilizing and then the then it kind of went out again on. I thought this is surprising. What's going on is voted on a really bad day. Then they're wonderful moment where m she was caught by the group behind cash dome was the first to draw level with her. She kind of did a double take. You know she looks across because the script was just well and truly rip thought wasn't an for a kind of an analysis of what happened. Why it happened. I do recommend listening to lizzie. Banks on the the regular cycle podcast. Lionel spoke to her for her. Take on what happened and why it happened. And it's really really interesting she. She's got lots of thoughts and theories everything from the the blackboard being a white board to the difficulty of taking in information. When you're making a big effort like that the the fact that a lot of us don't appreciate where more watching on tv. The the writer's view of the racist so one dimensional and we are getting up close to three dimensional view of the race. Were getting a lot of information. The writers are not getting the same amount of information. They're not obviously seeing what's happening the roads and they're there so they can be really quite in the dark especially with eye. Radio's of course which has been another big talking point but you know there. Was this expectation that because they had such strong team would be able to close it and bring it back but you look at the team. They had four riders. Mina voss demi vol ring on a vendor braga enemy conflict and all potential winners are not. Not i think was the problem. I mean well. One problem is the size of the team. Only four writers but really if you're they brought a team for the final fifty comments if everything was together you know if everything had been together fifty case to go somebody from that team. I'm sure would have won the race. What they didn't bring a team for was a scenario whereby a breakaway hot over ten minutes lead a man who. Who'd you get to the front. I mean you need more than one writer really couple writers to at least to be writing quite hard behind and really. They didn't really have the personnel unless they wanted to completely sacrifice unavowed bragan demi volunteering at that point there also so i mean they're so different as writers and yet they are so similar. I mean i think merrill voices slightly different from the other three in that. She's kind of your woman if you want a fast finish if it's just going to be a kind of sprint to the line you marry to be protected but the other three. They're kind of setups although they race very differently on meek is a lot more kind of has their explosively words and of under bragan. It's got more is more kind of the engineer. When she attacks we saw in the jury donna as well she just too slowly pulls away from people. It's kind of explosive. But the course is that suit. The moral for volunteering vanfleet and and found bragan is kind of the similar courses. So you're basically asking someone to give up their chances on the day when you got three. Who are champions and could all win really needed someone kind of like ellen van dyke who could just motor on the the front and whose job was solely just bring any breaks back and bring back any attacks but it's funny because i think we were talking while the whole script before the race was just it would be dutch dominance. And how can you be this quarter riders but it did remind me of the european championships in two thousand eighteen which marta bus dinelli one. And then at that race there was like a full set of team so they had eight riders the dutch roster of eight riders was absolutely phenomenal. Had loosened brandon. And vanderberg rosen. And they still couldn't win that. And i think it's partly also that slight miscommunication between them. That's what it was in european championships in two thousand eighteen. It was again a case where there was no race radios. They didn't question what was going on the break they. No one was quite sure who was in the break. Unknown was quite sure whether they should be chasing back or not and in the end they totally fluffed it up and and it meant marta bus. Only one which was totally unexpected. Then so it has the has been president before for to have this strong strong strong dutch team and for them to not come away With the result. I mean there is a danger of course the coverage since it's been kind of fifty fifty the dutch. The dutch messed up on on a for pulled off an incredible cu. We shouldn't we shouldn't m the kind of talking about the the dutch not delivering we. Shouldn't it shouldn't detract from her incredible formats. Because you say you know. The question for writers going into the race teams highly beat the dutch well keys now for the perfect solution didn't she. I mean what what story was story. I mean she tight at columbus zero. We kind of got to know more as the race unfold. Not least by her. Her own social media tweet tweets telling telling us how she was preparing for the heat and so on. I mean i'm sure all the writers prepared really well for the conditions. Amer maybe putting too much emphasis on that as well because she she all struggles to write in a on. That's not a major weakness for a big problem for her and competing in in road races. And so here is the perfect solution. It was to attack at the start guy way in a small group and the two other writers and build a huge huge lead. They took advantage of the the small teams the small field. The fact that there was there were perhaps you know a a lack of writers and teams willing to really commit to keeping their league down his. You don't see that often women's racing the a a a a break get such a huge lead and and in the end they just gave them too much to do and you know when for to cough with forty case to go on our own. That looks like a doomed move at light. The break quit point was doomed. Because they'd been working pretty well together and it seemed a strange move again looking back with hindsight i'm she. She knew what she was doing. And she obviously knew they effort she was capable of making over the distance and she. She just rolled road the perfect race. You know an unusual and unexpected olympic champion. But definitely not undeserving. One not not. I think there's a lot of talk about this idea that she was an amateur rider. But i think the women's pederson is different from the men's.

"Well we always say to expect then expect bike racing and then when it happens we say well. Wasn't that a surprise. Well yes the most surprising of art comes anna keystone hall for a neom. I will bet my voice on that. None of us have ever mentioned before. Nobody's somebody's going to get in touch on twitter. Of course in point is and all the articles and find a few years ago so other than ruler and under mcgraw. None of us have been speaking about anna case in hoffer five hundred to one bet to win gold and her first olympic road race with no teammates or voluntary and involved in the first break of the day when solo forty one kilometers to go and she made it to the line first gold medal for austria. Sacked end for omic fund flew to of the netherlands and third for a lisa. Longo bore gainey. Of course actually so. I've said this before. But train saying there. Rather than the trade teams. I spoke to on occasion ho for after she got her gold medal and she's still a little bit. Shell shocked to be honest. She said what we would expect really that she only had one choice and that was to go early in the break. I just hope it paid off a lot more because of course she is a scientist. She's a mathematician. She's calculated things she's been monitoring her body being trying to make sure she acclimatize is and. I know that we didn't say that anymore. We say acclimating icee acclimatized to the heat and taking a very scientific approach to it a phenomenal when for her. I also spoke to make fun flirty and of course by. Everyone knows that she thought she had one when she crossed the line. I find it sad that she said that she felt stupid when she realized there's absolutely nothing stupid of course but when a silver medal at the olympic games her first olympic medal after the crushing disappointment of five years ago. Of course it's not the goal the announcement she had invested everything intaking humping some queries on social media and different news reports a her suggestion that there were no whiteboards own the rid we can only go with what the writers say and what they saw and i gas if he are attacking so much in the race and you can't see what the time gaps are it would suggest maybe that something done quite the right way but i have no comment to make on that other than to say that this is the dynamic. I guess when we don't have raised radio and always having to rely on accurate communication from your team car. We understand that there was a problem with communication between the team. Coach the finish line and the team car on plays into the whole debate about race radios and their role in cycling. It was a fantastically exciting race to watch. There is the other argument there that you need to know what you're racing against who you're racing against them. All the time got beat in order to be able to win it by grasp regardless when spoke to me before the race before the nationals actually few weeks ago especially on the site and focused on the second now. She says she really hoped almost as much as anything that the race should be exciting that it would be fantastic showcase for women's racing. Well you didn't get your gold medal but you've got that it was lemon marvelous to watch the last fifty kilometers so are so. We're just thrilling. You can maybe tell from my voice. I'm starting to slur my words that has nothing to do with any alcohol. Of course i am just exhausted. Resigned for take to say when the writers have written and olympic road race in the heat. But it's been a long day thirteen hours and go all done and it was worth it a beautiful beautiful olympic road race through the unexpected. The dutch dominance date indeed affect the risk as we expected it to but not with the end result and a fantastic bronze-medal as well for a longer gaining. It's been five years in the waiting but we finally had to kill twenty twenty shirt that i do cycling team car. The back of the pack fleas. Well as we all know in his own over saying uncertainty in sport can be sometimes most exciting thing about it and why we love it but uncertainty in the real world is something that might leave.

I find sleeping very difficult. You know when you're doing bradley. Having maybe ethan a bit too much and then up quite early in a different bed every night. It's quite quite difficult. Use comedy nights. They've got a few you know it's funny because we're sharing a high sierra on holiday with a a young baby white noise machine at night and kinda similar for me and hotel rooms i listened to ocean waves and waves Helped me to just switch off a bit. But on cam they also have m can relaxing stories The red by various actors and and people generally with very soothing voices on the enough bought one. I particularly liked which i listened to way back at the jiro was the history of the shipping forecast. Now shipping forecasts on it. So one can send me to sleep. I know a lot people do. Use it for that almost but this is a story. The history of the shipping forecast of read by somebody who presented on bbc radio. Four fourteen years on roy bucher both peter jefferson and the shipping forecast a peculiarly. British institutional. I'm not sure if listeners from elsewhere in the world will be familiar with it. If you're no it's it's it's almost a foreign language. And the places. The the weather patterns that it describes will not be familiar to most because amb. But that's kind of the point. And i find it very relaxing thing to listen to and peter. Jefferson's history the shipping forecast similarly very very soothing and relaxing and really enjoyed that. And there's there's a few there are few train journeys stories of train journeys well on their child. So enjoy you get the you know the sound of the the train on the tracks in the background and that can be very am issues often. You missed the end of the story because you fall asleep so you have to go back and find out what actually happened but no. It's very very enjoyable. Orla enjoys it as well. So am i find it useful on. The road is absolutely which we haven't fallen asleep. Just listening to richard talking about someone else talking about the shipping for then you should definitely go and check out the up there so there's also physical things like stretches stuff the kids who might be suffering with excited.

Everyone even the most unlikely person well since come come of of advertised with the second podcast for a few months so i put the app on my phone and gave go on. I say especially from whom. I find sleeping very difficult. You know when you're doing bradley. Having maybe ethan a bit too much and then up quite early in a different bed every night. It's quite quite difficult. Use comedy nights. They've got a few you know it's funny because we're sharing a high sierra on holiday with a a young baby white noise machine at night and kinda similar for me and hotel rooms i listened to ocean waves and waves Helped me to just switch off a bit. But on cam they also have m can relaxing stories The red by various actors and and people generally with very soothing voices on the enough bought one. I particularly liked which i listened to way back at the jiro was the history of the shipping forecast. Now shipping forecasts on it. So one can send me to sleep. I know a lot people do. Use it for that almost but this is a story. The history of the shipping forecast of read by somebody who presented on bbc radio. Four fourteen years on roy bucher both peter jefferson and the shipping forecast a peculiarly british. Shusha i'm not sure if listeners from elsewhere in the world will be familiar with it. If you're no it's it's it's almost a foreign language and the places. The the weather patterns that it describes will not be familiar to most because amb. But that's kind of the point. And i find it very relaxing thing to listen to and peter. Jefferson's history the shipping forecast similarly very very soothing and relaxing and really enjoyed that. And there's there's a few there are few train journeys stories of train journeys well on their child. So enjoy you get the you know the sound of the the train on the tracks in the background and that can be very am issues often. You missed the end of the story because you fall asleep so you have to go back and find out what actually happened but no. It's very very enjoyable. Orla enjoys it as well. So am i find it useful on. The road is absolutely if we haven't fallen asleep. Just listening to richard talking about someone else talking about the shipping for then you should definitely go and check out the up there. There's also physical things like stretches stuff.

I think my sophomore year of undergrad. No it was my freshman. Year of undergrad. And i just had a bike that i was riding around campus and then i was running track and cross country for my university and anytime we had an off week i would ride my bike around town so i definitely really enjoyed riding. The bike didn't wear a helmet. Were flops wasn't a cyclist just was a person bopping around getting to the grocery store and then i moved to chicago for graduate school. And that's where. I really started riding my started working on a bike shop and got a road bike and camped out my commuter so that i could get to and from class which was downtown and i lived in the northern part of the city. The i really started as a commuter. Even though i was an athlete before in a different sport and then because i was working on a bike shop my coworkers coerced into trying to become an athlete again.

Now i i mean i guess it's i don't know if it's the most embarrassing but i i can remember like they were like hitting a hurdle before the race started in like. I had blood all over my knee trying to shake that off in race. Two seconds later like in you know the crowds lights up on. That was tough though. Now take over lease the two thousand eight race. I was like at the olympics. Finished the race. This one was like. Is this like i don't know it was just awkward ninety brutal brutal a number seven. What's the thing about yourself.

Phelps has been really open about like mental health and stuff lately. So and i think he's working on a book as well but see ya. Good good good idea. Actually because he might be doing some press for that he was really nice. Talking to you in my opinion means nothing but as someone who's gotten a lot of shit on social media keep your head up and feel free to to step away for long stretches. Those people don't deserve any time in your head and they're probably just very dissatisfied with their own lives and jealous of your success and so the way they make themselves feel better as to attack you. They don't honey actual power. Yeah true nice. People people who are happy people who are successful or not sitting on the internet being mean to other people they're trying to uplift people and bring them along with their success so i tend to feel sorry for them instead of being mad. I tend to think. I feel sad for you. That you're unhappy and unsuccessful and that this is what you have to do to make yourself feel better and then it makes me less sad about myself awesome.

"Listen to flame bearers on apple podcasts. Spotify or every. Get your podcasts. So let's talk about the bobsled. You mentioned it again. You won the two woman bobsled world championships in february with your teammate. Kelly humphries who is a really successful bobsledder for the canadian team until there's a falling out with the federation. She is married to an american man and was able to petition and be put onto team. Usa so you guys earned a spot for the beijing olympics. Congratulations will you know. She earned a spot to spot. So you don't get it with her. Now i have to requalify position. So why is that. Because of her pre existing titles or effort they allow the pilots to qualify first and then once the pile pilots are qualified. Did make him focus on which brakeman that they will put with the pilots. So that's where we're in the process of now in two weeks. We will start competitions to kinda show. The pilots are strikes and then we'll start wrong geared up with them but yes she's qualified. I am not. I won't find out if i've made the olympic team until january. Oh my gosh. So you've got a long stretch ahead of you of training and working in competing. Do you have a you know a select number of athletes. That are kind of your biggest competition for that. we'll yeah we have to returning olympic medalists For that position and we have a slew of other girls. that will compete for a spot. So but it's anybody's game. I mean it's the olympics. The olympic year seen people who were really good lose their ads and then you know people come out of nowhere. So i'm just looking forward to stepping up and doing things in the sport i haven't done before. So what's an average day. Look like right now as you're training to start those big competitions to prove yourself right now i wake up probably like a have breakfast in an head to the ice house to push a like a bobsled on ice in weights in an treatment and Another workout issues is this Bobsled his life has like eat sleep. Train eat sleep train. Redo that it's it's really boring. Actually where are you training out of Currently right now in lake placid new york at the olympic training center is your dog It's low key right yeah. He's not here. He actually was cleared to be here but my sister was like just she basically stolen from me. So yeah. that's sounds like a story for another time When you do have some time off from the training are you. Are you been watching anything or do you like it to settle in at night and relax. i was binge-watching on because it's a they definitely filmed in europe somewhere rank vigil. It's like the door on net lips autumn. Not oughta say rank okay. I don't know it's. I have no clutter say but basically like thor as a teenager and his brother low key and all that but Right now only watching like good movies like really cheesy like bill. Good rom coms Because the more stressed out. I get because we have this big competition coming up. I like to watch less action movies and more just calm. I'm completely with you. I've been like that for the entirety of covet. I've just been watching either. Old shows that i used to love and i'm watching them again or like top chef project runway kind of things. Ted lasso all the fun stuff. Like i don't wanna watch anything too serious. There's enough of that. Even below deck is too stressful my binges but like it's too stressful because people fighting and stop my friend who used to work with me here at. Espn jemele hill was on below deck. She like she yes. She did a She did her bachelor party on the boat. And i was i was like i can't believe you made me watch full episodes of below deck just kind of made her look spicy though. That's it they tried and then at the end there were like never mind. I was like you couldn't find any drama. Because she's too awesome. They were like. Let's manufacture some drama with the penis cake. And then her being a diva and then they were like nice maker. looks fine. what that's been workout realities look spicy. I'm all for making look spicy but character assassination. Yeah i yeah. I i'm not a below deck personnels like i can't believe you made me made me watch that So when what is this big event. That's coming up so we can all keep our eye out for it as use a bobsled push championships. It's actually just in-house competition. I don't even know if they will stream it live But our season starts in around october And then i will be updating my social media on ways for people to watch bobsled competitions. I'm awesome and then the final announcement will come in january. And that's based on a collection of competitions. Correct that's hard to kazan. It's subjective it's not like. I put the best time oh trust i wrote. I wrote about that in my book. But i just basically said political like the last olympic team. I probably should have made but subjective So i mean i got. I had the The only girl to win a gold medal that year. The whole season had the best law cities. Second push championships. They pick someone who got third noble manual so yeah. It is very subjective so it does. It's like trying to make a sixteen. Yeah figure skating competition you know. Were they judged the points at the end so yeah during the Does the pilot get to choose their preferred partner. Yes they have a say so but they do not one hundred percent determine If someone's on the team so there's a whole selection committee of people that will go enable talk about it and to their luna face in impact the team well Good luck to you. I'm sure we're well not all of us. Some of us are haters but a lot of us are rooting for you to find success. And i think it'd be a great story and to your point. I think there's nothing that we should rally around more than someone who continues to face adversity and keeps trying keeps going after that dream Especially older folks right. We gotta we gotta root for the for the older athletes and not let it be all sixteen and eighteen year olds living living out the dream.

I mean i've been on other shows in you know it's yeah but yeah but i've been on live shows. I've been out shows. So i've been on big brother which is live dancing with the stars which is live so the challenge is taped. It's edited and it does not come out for months until after the fact right so you don't feel like were acting any differently than they went elsewhere that you are acting in a bad way that wasn't in fitting with the competition. It was just a matter of. Let's make her the ultracompetitive one. Yeah i think it was good for their shows. I mean they needed. They want her first olympic athlete and so they wanted to make sure that they chimed in on that. And you know so. They kept talking about certain things that in other cast. Mates were getting frustrated by the we get olympian Right tv hired me. This is a talking point for them. Easy talking about it going. Sorry that they keep announced me as an olympia.

In you work with teen usa on a regular basis when Anti to the challenge trying to make me look like a quitter. I've never quit anything in my life. That's what's frustrating because it should show the fans the power of editing. It showed show the fans that power of reality tv I literally lost the olympics in front of millions of people.

I honestly say good luck and believe in fantasy because the way it tries to rip people apart as much focus there is on mental health.

"The supercilious maitre d' of shake key leveled a snooty no snotty gaze at ferris bueller questioning whether the young teen could really be frohmann the sausage king of chicago. Now let's get back to the interview. You've always been very outspoken. Obviously the topic of your virginity and your faith becomes a big talking point in the media. That's both positive and negative depending on the person writing or talking about it How much do you think that. I mean you keep coming back to the idea of the negativity around you and i know that a lot of that social media but it's also stories that are written that are take a totally different tone than a lot of what we see for other olympians. How much you think that that negative vity stems from you not speaking in cliches not saying what people wanna hear and also being so open about something like virginity that some people think is either fake or fraudulent door. Tmi or any number things yeah. Yeah so that. I've thought about that. It's so you know. They want athletes to different outspoken. They wanna get to know us in a moment. We do like you know so. Then there's the athletes you know there are athletes out there that say the boring things that just you know. They post on their instagram. And they're just gonna use a quote from someone you know general quote the calendar of hanging from a tree hang in there with the atmos- that don't host. They don't get criticized those as much as a person who's just them so it is a balanced like i. I know by posted and trying to be as real honest with people that it's definitely gonna open me up to more criticism and so once sometimes when it just gets overwhelming. I just. I'd have to take a break because you know it will shut me down completely. Sometimes so you have talked in the past about the criticism of getting fourth in twenty twelve of getting so close and not feeling supported in that effort and it's resulted in u continuing to push to compete. So you know you wanna come back you find and discover The bobsled might be a chance for you and you've actually talked about what we all hoped. Which was you were watching. Cool runnings and you're like. Hey this could be good. Which i just love that. Not you've obviously heard about it and seen it in other places but that being the kind of trigger point for you was so cool so you make the olympics in two thousand fourteen year. One of the few athletes in the world who competed in the summer and winter olympics. When you got there did you feel like as a bobsledder you carried with you all of the shit from the track or did you feel like perhaps you could have a fresh start in the winter olympics in a different sport. So when i first came to. Bob says i will absolutely have a fresh start..

"So social media has been the hardest waters to navigate. You were actually diagnosed with ptsd after the two thousand eight olympics. Because not only was it heartbreaking for you to be so close but then people's reactions to it and almost reveling in the pain that it caused you to try to reconcile that very close moment of of being the best not quite getting there And you talked about the hbo documentary. The weight of gold experiencing sort of passive suicidal thoughts. So not wanting to hurt yourself but maybe something bad might happen to you. You know the idea of of being one of the best ever at something and the difference between that one hurdle being being all the happiness you've sought and then this which is such a dark opposite. Are you able to try to find perspective there in the fact that that gold medal is not the actual journey itself. It's just a thing that you can point to on that journey. I think i found a ton of perspective. The problem is as i continue to get ripped apart for just my effort. And that's what i'm most proud about. Is our people. Call me a flop a failure You know a disrespected team usa. In if anything. I've stowed over my career if you mess up to get back up to keep fighting like most people only can make one olympic team and i've made three against the odds so i look back in. Okay i don't have an olympic medal but men dang proud of just my fight in my effort. But then you'll go on a you know an interview or check your social media and people are calling you flopped for doing something overcome extreme odds and so that's when it can get frustrated. You get so many attacks those per day it just can start to way down your spirits and so Then you start to like you know rethink things. What you start to relive things and it can be quite difficult you write in your book about that Or actually it was from your instagram. But you repeat it in your book. Everyone loses everyone comes up. Short winners are talented. But most winters are just losers. That never gave up. First of all. I love that concept because one of the things i talk about as an athlete and with other athletes is the idea that there are people who go through life who fail at something. And that's it they're done and if you're an athlete you get used to being denied not scoring the goal not winning the race and having to come right back and work just as hard if not harder to do it again. And that's a lesson for everybody in life to apply to everything and it's it's such a gift to athletes to learn that at a young age and be able to be perseverance in everything that you do. So you're right. It's not something to be critical of x. Reminds me of of tim. Tebow in the jaguars and him getting a shot. From urban meyer and i was critical of urban meyer and the people who decided to give him a spot when he hasn't been in the nfl for that long when he's never played the position. I was never critical of tim. Tebow who am i to tell someone to stop dreaming like this someone who wants to know for sure. They've put everything out there. They did everything they could. And then it was over and then when it's over you don't ever wonder what if it feels like to me. That's what you've been doing at every turn and that's admirable. Why appreciate that and yeah you're right. You're the first person and it's actually put the blame on urban meyer not zebari. When they found out the news directly started to attack him tibo. It's like the man's just trying to fight for his dream. He sees trying to finish how he wants to finish as much as he can. so absolutely agree with that. And that's essentially what what's happened over my career Is i've just been attacked for just trying like they're like you should retire at ease. You give it up. You're never going to happen. It's like don't you wanna see a happy knowledge don't you wouldn't that be like wouldn't that give you hope that you know one failure doesn't make you to doesn't break you three keep trying so But yeah but that's not what society lately society likes to trip on those failures so Yeah interesting take. We'll get right back to the interview but first what's your favorite word persistence. Persistence seems very fitting. With all the things we've been talking about today and your desire to stick with it. Fifteen forties when that first came around from the french and latin meaning steady or firm adherence to or a continuance in a state course of action or pursuit that's been entered upon great great word. Speak speaking a great words today. The word of the week is supercilious behaving or looking as one thinks. One is superior to others. Cooley or patronizing lee haughty haughtily disdainful or contemptuous as a person or a facial expression now that last bit matters. And it's why. I chose this word because i love the origin. It originated in the fifteen twenty s from the latin supercilious. Haughty arrogant from supercilious. I'm literally super above silly. Liam eyelid eyebrow supercilious eyebrow. Lake these sort of notion of raising the eyebrow to express your haughtiness that face. You make eyebrows up looking down your nose. You don't even know it but you probably just did that as you're listening to this. You just made that face right now. The eyebrows up sort of looking down your nose haughtily disdainfully. I just love super above. Silliest silly eyelid above the eyelid is your eyebrow and that description is what your face looks like when. You're being supercilious. So in a sentence. The supercilious maitre d' of shake key leveled a snooty no snotty gaze at ferris bueller questioning whether the young teen could really be frohmann the sausage king of chicago. Now let's get back to the interview. You've always been very outspoken. Obviously the topic of your virginity and your faith becomes a big talking point in the media. That's both positive and negative depending on the person writing or talking about it How much do you think that. I mean you keep coming back to the idea of the negativity around you and i know that a lot of that social media but it's also stories that are written that are take a totally different tone than a lot of what we see for other olympians. How much you think that that negative vity stems from you not speaking in cliches not saying what people wanna hear and also being so open about something like virginity that some people think is either fake or fraudulent door. Tmi or any number things yeah. Yeah so that. I've thought about that. It's so you know. They want athletes to different outspoken. They wanna get to know us in a moment. We do like you know so. Then there's the athletes you know there are athletes out there that say the boring things that just you know. They post on their instagram. And they're just gonna use a quote from someone you know general quote the calendar of hanging from a tree hang in there with the atmos- that don't host and they don't get criticized those as much as a person who's just them so it is a balanced like i know by posted and trying to be as real honest with people that it's definitely gonna open me up to more criticism and so once sometimes when it just gets overwhelming. I just. I'd have to take a break because you know it will shut me down completely. Sometimes so you have talked in the past about the criticism of getting fourth in twenty twelve of getting so close and not feeling supported in that effort and it's resulted in u continuing to push to compete. So you know you wanna come back you find and discover The bobsled might be a chance for you and you've actually talked about what we all hoped. Which was you were watching. Cool runnings and you're like. Hey this could be good. Which i just love that..

"olympian" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain

"What point when you were a kid. Did you realize that you were special. When it came to to be in an athlete it wasn't actually until was in college that i knew that i was kind of union in high school. It started to get there. But because i grew up in des moines iowa it's not really the track mecca most of the Like d. one colleges were recruiting from california texas or florida. And so i was kind of under the radar name. When i went to lsu who they have so many national titles in track and field and i was able to kind of hang with those girls wins and national titles on my own. I was like okay. Why might have a chance at this kind of olympic thing. Yeah i mean like you know. Pretty pretty legit. Eleven all american honors while l. issues. So you're hanging with them for sure do you. By the way speaking of that. I was watching that. Lsu hype video right after the nfl announcement in your featured in there lot of the great now them. Yeah it's a really. I mean it's really well done and lsu. They're really trying to let people know if you come here. You're going to be able to make some coin. Do you look back and think damn i. I was really marketable in college. I have had a ton of sponsorships like the local sign shop in the and rolling. Then i was just talking about that to someone but unfortunately there was no social social media when ali so i honestly would not have been able to capitalize off of it like now. They have college student athletes. They're coming out with a million followers on off before they even you know graduate so he can get huge endorsements in off of ads just based on that alone but there was no social media design college. Oh probably wouldn't have. Benefited me up as much as degeneration. Now yeah for sure. So you thrive at lsu and you find yourself to be You know in the position to win at the beijing. Twenty two thousand eight summer olympics. We all remember watching and rooting for you had become star before the olympics as we often find some of these favorites beforehand. That get lots of publicity and excitement around it and we're all settled into. Watch your seconds away from winning gold you clip the last hurdle and this is a pivotal moment for your life. Not just as an athlete and being a former hurdler myself. That is about the nightmare. One of my best friends in high school. My teammate was a favourite in every single one every race gets to the state meet and same thing clips the last hurdle breaks her foot has to do all the rehab before she even get started at duke and it's a terrible feeling that little inch or less than an inch is the difference in winning the race but instead of instead of just being empathetic which one would imagine you to be as someone that america was getting behind. You started out being america's sweetheart and someone people felt sorry for but then you often talk about how much you were ridiculed for that for not being able to achieve and get that gold. Yeah are you able to explain that. I don't understand that. I absolutely slanted so two thousand. A was the beginning of twitter. So is just starting. It was like a baby and people really didn't know how to navigate the social media. It was barely out there Social media wasn't in existence Essentially there was no instagram in two thousand eight so When i competed people saw me on. Tv and your grant granted. I handled that situation with about as much a grace's god could give me and america fell in love with me will..
