"The Olympics will be feeling that now Karimi mori thank you so much for joining us from abating with all the latest and on that doping scandal of one of the Russian figure skaters will bring you more on that information as we do get it throughout the show Now earlier I also spoke to know a Huffman who is a former American Olympic cross country skier who has competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia and the 2018 Winter Olympics over in South Korea He is also a bald member of global athlete and I started by asking him if there's no escaping the political tensions between both the U.S. and China at these Olympic Games These games are inescapably tied to the human rights abuses in China and the genocide or the cultural genocide of the Uyghur people its inescapably linked from the way that athletes and others are silenced in China We've seen this most recently with tennis player Peng shuai Coming out with sexual abuse claims against a top Communist Party official and then disappearing from public life This is part of a pattern in China of extra legal disappearances happening against anybody who speaks out against the regime even for something as funny as sexual violence against an athlete And so you can not that you can't differentiate the political climate and the political effect of these games from the athletic performances themselves But Noah punches now come out and deny that that's what she was alluding to and also this huge pride in China that these games are happening isn't there a difference between the Chinese people and the ruling Communist Party should they not be given a chance to have something as spectacular as the Winter Olympics Look I want the Olympic movement to work for everybody in the world including the people of China.

"Mike what do you think it was I mean in that particular game Her Brooks God rest his soul was a great coach himself who coached our team Do you think it was the conditioning Do you think that tea can off the coach of the Soviet Union just wasn't ready You think he just kind of left you guys off and you know I watched the special about this from the Russian side the Soviet perspective and I think that the way they handled you guys at Madison Square Garden in the exhibition Mike actually hurt them because they came in just not taking you guys seriously You were on the ice no one knows better than you Yeah I don't know I'm not in the locker room I don't know what their mindset was I'm sure they were probably pretty confident I mean they were averaging I think 8 goals a game during the Olympics So nobody was really giving them a game But I think we kind of surprised them a little we were much better let's put it this way We were much better team the second time than the first time And I think some part of the reason in the first time we were losing 6 to nothing after the first period And then I think we were kind of saying look okay guys Let's play I think we stood around and watched and I also think that last game in Madison Square Garden a lot of players had one foot in the locker room in New York and one in Lake placid because that was the last game of 6 months and I think we were kind of just couldn't wait to get the game over and let's go to Lake placid and let the real game start But having said all that as well I mean we played pretty well We played outstanding in the first period when we didn't come out as shoppers We should have And then we played pretty even with them the rest of the way And we scored four of those They only scored three Now remember they were averaging 7 or 8 a game If they scored four we weren't score in 5 So the game went exactly I guess as it had to go for us and conditioning you mentioned somebody told me Robbie mcclanahan one of my teammates told me this last summer In the third period of the Olympic Games we outscored our opponent 17th to three That's an incredible number That's an incredible number

"I gave you that headline to tell you this next story And I don't like to say this very often because I do think people overuse two things now when they want to discredit people okay Number one I think they use way too often You're a racist bigot I put those together Everybody's a race to start big and if they don't agree with me That's like the new thing The other one that's starting to get used too much is that you're on American I don't think it's fair to say people are on American just because they have a different viewpoint than you when it's not even an issue of being un American or being American Un American means you're anti America okay I say that because I'm about to accuse someone of being un American What does it mean to be patriotic What does it mean to be American I'm talking about specifically when it comes to kind of political speech right And bear with me for a second because you're going to understand I'm laying the foundation for what I'm about to criticize That has just happened in a new attack against U.S. athletes from Nancy Pelosi I believe that is un American to try to silence American citizens If they want to speak out on something I believe it's un American to tell American athletes that are traveling abroad what they can and can not say When it comes to standing up against communist China's genocide I believe there should be decorum I believe that there should be focused on the Olympic Games in general but to say as Nancy Pelosi has now done to instruct like she's a dictator or tyrant that all year at that all U.S. athletes quote not speak out During the Olympics against communist China's genocide I would argue is flat out on American

Olympic Silver Medalist Courtney Frerichs On Dealing With The Pressure Put on Athletes

"Talked before about the topic of pressure. And i know that came up a lot with all kinds of athletes at the olympics. A lot of conversation around pressure is a privilege in well. What is pressure actually mean. And where is it coming from. And just this idea of athletes who are at the top of their game and expected to stay there so for you coming off such a high. Do you feel that there is pressure going into this race of like well. She's a silver medallist so she's obviously the one to watch or is it like. Oh this is my victory lap. I can have fun with it. Where do you fall with that You know i definitely do feel like there is some pressure and i think a lot of is you know kind of driven by from myself like keno perform again but i keep reminding myself that these are separate events and so no matter what happens this weekend. It doesn't take away from what happened at the olympics. And i think that that's kind of the mindset. I'm meeting to have to to handle. Yeah like the perceived pressure going into this because you always want to form your best but just because you have an off day. It doesn't mean that it takes like anything else you do so i don't wanna feel like it's hard though i mean i feel like a lot of us. Athletes are so hard on ourselves and hold ourselves to a really high standard so the regardless of what performance. You're coming off of their. Can you feel that pressure in. It definitely feels a bit present. But the i keep focusing on china carry the same attitude. I kind of had going into the olympic games. And i think that that was you know kind of that quiet competence and knowing what i needed to do to be successful in kind of tuning out the rest of

Who Decides Which Sports Are in the Olympics?

"So the delayed twenty twenty tokyo olympics happened the other week complete with thirty three sports and three hundred thirty nine events including four new sports and to discontinued sports. Brought back from the dead. That's the funny thing about the olympic games. The games themselves change almost every time in terms of new events. You might have seen the karate skateboarding sport climbing or serving you might have. I didn't what i saw. The olympics was mostly clips on my favorite memes site. The resurrected sports were baseball and softball. Last seen at the two thousand eight beijing olympics the international olympic committee had decided to make a commitment to the youth by bringing sports to them in urban environments. A pretty new point of view for the i. O. c. as well as to increase engagement for youth fans who are passionate about different sports from all over the world or dispassionate about sports as a whole these sports are also not coincidentally quite popular in japan so who decides what stays in. What goes that would be the aforementioned international olympic committee they oversee all aspects of the olympic. Games they run in it in the common parlance of the associations. Ninety nine members many are former athletes or current leaders in athletics from all over the world bonus fact one of the founders of buffalo wild wings was a lifelong figure skater who served on the ioc for a time. The ios's executive board proposes which sports will be included and the rest of the votes on them. A sport must cut certain muster to sway. Those voters there are five factors split into a further thirty five criteria. Such as. How long has the sport existed. How popular is the sport in the host country. How much would it cost to hold and broadcast the event and how much value the sport would be to the olympic legacy.

"olympic games" Discussed on Inquisikids Daily

"I'm luke and welcome to the inquisitor podcast. Have you been watching the olympic games this summer. Isn't it fun to see so many athletes from all over the world. Today we will talk about the story of the olympics. How it came to be a tradition. And how the modern olympic games have changed through the years. The ancient olympic games were held in greece in the city of olympia. We know that they were played around. One thousand two hundred. B c e every four years as part of a festival celebrating the greek god zeus athletes from all over. The greek empire competed. This tradition went on until three ninety three. See when emperor the odious. The i band the games because they were pagan in eighteen ninety two a frenchman named pierre the couberton proposed reviving the olympic games. He thought that having a fair way to have healthy competition would be fun and help countries all over the world. Get along better. Pierre became the first president of the international olympic committee that is the group that organizes the olympics. They decided to hold the new olympics. Every four years just like the ancient greeks did and they decided that athens. Greece should be the city to host the first modern olympic games in eighteen. Ninety six fourteen nations sent athletes to athens. Forty three events were held in track and field swimming cycling gymnastics weightlifting tennis wrestling shooting and fencing track and field events were held in the pantheon stadium which was built in three thirty b c. e. There were parades and banquets for the athletes. The highlight of the eighteen. Ninety six games was the marathon. It followed the path of by deputies. Who ran from the city of marathon to athens to bring news of the defeat of the persian army in ancient times. Four years later the olympics were held in paris. This time twenty. Four countries sent athletes. New sports were added to the games. Rugby gulf cricket croquet archery soccer rowing and tug of war also. This was the first olympics which included winning twenty. Two women participated along with almost a thousand men in nineteen. Oh six the games were held in athens again. This event isn't always recognized as an official would mix and of course it wasn't held for years after the previous won it. The olympic committee was still figuring out how to organize this huge competition. But this was the first time that the opening ceremony included a parade of nations which is still part of the olympics today in one thousand nine hundred eight. Two thousand athletes gathered in london in nineteen sixteen. The olympics were not held because world war one was being fought all over europe in nineteen twenty. The olympic flag was flown for the first time in nineteen twenty four. The legacy pierre left us is the symbol of the olympic rings. It stands for the union of all five continents leaving out antarctica in counting the americas one continent the five colors on the white background. Mean that every country has the colors of their flag represented in the ring symbol in nineteen twenty eight. The olympic flame was included in the ceremonies for the first time as a way to pay tribute to the ancient olympic games. This time forty. Six countries sent three thousand athletes including three hundred women. The olympic games were growing in nineteen thirty to the olympics. Were held in los angeles california for the first time judges used photo finishes to decide race winners as the racers approached the finish line. A photo was taken and could be viewed later to see who crossed the line. I in a close race now we use video and we can replay it slowly which is even more accurate. But in nineteen thirty two photo-finish technology was a big deal in nineteen thirty six for the first time. The olympic torch was lit in olympia greece and carried by a series of runners to the olympic games. This was also the first time newsreel footage was taken of the games and broadcast and other places so people all over the world could watch the events just like we do now. The games in nineteen forty and nineteen forty four were cancelled because of world war two in nineteen fifty to five thousand athletes from sixty. Nine countries competed in nineteen sixty. The olympics were shown on television for the first time during the nineteen sixties for the first time countries opted not to participate in the olympics because of political protests issues of human rights living conditions in their home countries and disagreements about how olympic money was spent. Were all reasons. Nations chose not to participate in nineteen sixty eight. olympic athletes. Were drug tested for the first time. It's unfair to the competitors if an athlete is drugs to help them perform better. The winter olympics were held during the same year as the summer olympics until nineteen ninety four. When the winter games were held two years after the summer olympics separating them gives the host cities of the olympic committee. More time to plan without having to have everything ready at one time the olympics continue to change over time as the world changes they are a reminder that every four years all the people of the world can come together and compete on a fair playing field and respect each other as friends and as humans and as worthy opponents..

The Tokyo Olympic Games Come to an End

"More than two weeks of competition in thirty three sports across forty six disciplines in forty three venues for a total of three hundred thirty nine medal events. The tokyo olympics formerly came to an end on sunday with the closing ceremony. We'll joining me now. Is monaco tokyo bureau. Chief of funeral. Wilson you're not as we know. These games were delayed for year because of the pandemic when they did finally go ahead. It was in the face of a great deal of opposition from the japanese people. How do they feel now hydrogen. Well that's very question. I think you know the early polls saying that slight majority of people were okay with with the government going ahead with the games. But i wouldn't say that was a lot of enthusiasm over for the games are very pleased with the way japan did for good. Tv viewing figures. Appreciate good. but i think just going out and about in tokyo you sat and you felt like the city was slightly disconnected from the event. It was almost like the event was happening. Somewhere else People around tokyo couldn't go and see the event you weren't seeing athletes around the city so bit of a mixed picture Thrilled with the the tally of goals for japan. Which is the highest ever. But i don't know there's a slight feeling that You know. I felt like once it started. People just thought they were bit resigned. You did still see some protesters outside the stadium last night but i think the really hard opposition was worn away by the time the the event came around

Reflecting on the Tokyo Games

"Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo didn't happen without serious controversy, many questioning whether the games should have gone on at all. Given Japan's low vaccination rate, and the numbers of people who have been infected with coronavirus, ABC is Kenneth Martin is covered pretty much every corner of the Olympics while in Tokyo. And he offered his thoughts on Friday, just as the games were beginning to wrap up, Ken, you were there for a lot of the most dramatic moments of these Olympics. What's your take this year? What a year? I mean the masks the pandemic. Simone Biles, give us a rundown sherry. It's something that we've never seen before. A delayed plagued Olympics and I actually said, expect the unexpected when it came to these Olympics because We didn't know when we landed here in Tokyo. What was going to happen? We knew when it came to Covid protocols. They were pretty strict. I couldn't go out into public spaces. I couldn't walk on the sidewalks. I couldn't eat in restaurants, which is really tough for me. You know me Sherry. So when it came to what we saw here, I don't think I'll ever experience anything like it again. What were the most exciting moments do you think of of these delayed Olympics? Simone Biles was the biggest story of these Olympics, I think, and that's because all eyes were on this young woman who we had such high expectations. And she came in here and we were expecting so much. And then she said, No, I'm having an issue. I'm going to work on myself. I don't care if billions of people are watching me. My mental health comes first. And then, when she was ready, she decided to get back on the horse or balance beam. She delivered a solid routine and walked away with an Olympic medal. And what we saw is other athletes talking about mental health. So during the press conferences after a lot of these athletes competed. The American ones were asked about Simone Biles asked about mental health and they really opened up. They had honest conversations, and for many

Discussion Simone Biles Mental Health Challenges After Winning Bronze on Beam

"So i just wanna start with a very basic question to both of you. Simone biles yes has won the bronze-medal in the balance beam which is actually an even greater triumph for her. Now considering how the past week had gone for her but professor carter friend zeke. When biles. I made that announcement of withdrawing from the team competition. I just was wondering what was your first reaction. How did you feel about that. What did you think was going on. My initial reaction was of concern. And while i don't know byles you know hearing that For any athlete they withdrew Were removed from lineup. Or remove themselves made me think that she had perhaps encourage some sort of physical injury in the qualifying rounds or because of the pandemic perhaps contracted cobra as we've seen many of some of our athletes not only from the us but other countries succumb to that Then when she continued to share that she would not be competing in those events she qualified for and that it was not due to anything. Physical in real concern began to overcome me and initial thoughts of mental health issues to pass sixteen months with those respective sort of restrictive parameters The combination of postponement of the olympic games wondering what it must mean to be in the spotlight to as i reviewed all her sponsorship ads but as well reflecting on what she may be navigating in the aftermath of the sexual abuse case that she was part of so things became of greater concern and really just just hoping and wishing her well through that process over the next few days

"Native steps up as the goat in her sport steps out the face of the summer Games. Most popular sport made a stunning decision to drop out of the women's gymnastics team final. Simone Biles had one disappointing appearance on the vault and then told reporters it was not an injury. It's been really stressful this Olympic games. I think just as a whole not having an audience. There are a lot of different variables going into it. It's been a long week. It's been a long Olympic process. It's been a long Year Without Biles. Russia's Olympic Committee took the gold medal. But the United States still earned silver thanks to the efforts of Simone's good friend and training partner, Jordan Child's 20 Years of age from Vancouver, Washington training in Spring, Texas along with some miles these days, And boy can she explode off of the table very similar to Simone, Watch how high she flies right here all big Jordan. Childs had been slated to compete in only two events in the team finals, vault and floor but added balance beam and uneven bars to help her country. She was born into wall It's in Oregon named Jordan after the great basketball player and her boundless energy, a perfect match for gymnastics, overcoming painful injuries to pursue greatness. I had a cramp. In the back of my leg for a long time. I try to push through it, but it's getting hard. Jordan moved to gymnastics programs in Vancouver, Washington, capturing her first US junior title at age 13. She also met her gymnastics hero, Simone Biles came out of the elevator and I saw her and I like I never thought I would run as fast as I did to somebody that I did not know to hit it off in. Simone urged her new friend to move to Texas for pro training. She did so after high school and found joy in performing for the person who matters most. Once I realized that idea to stop doing it for other people and start getting it for myself, that's when I was like, just be free. Have fun with Jordan. Child's did not qualify for individual event finals this week, but her first trip to the Olympics memorable for so many reasons. I'm

We had ourselves another i We had the first american to win the fencing for decide which is again fencing. You just it depends on what you live. I guess i mean maybe it's just one of those things. Even though like i know is something that we don't take. We don't take seriously at least in a lot of urban area but fricken hand hand handball. Maybe as a kid just kind of just jump into it but you don't really think or we played walls ease. Maybe we just said forget. Forget the tapping. The hand should be a great great event.

Doc like thoughts about bobby lashley and brock. As their dominance they were dominant. It was very intriguing to watch You know what. I'm happy that you're you're stand. Is this good stuff. From some of our american Entrance because over the weekend it was a lot of negative talk about our beloved favorite. I guess gymnastics team. I mean they were really trying to get after how they had a slow start or slumped a little bit. I just like all about creating drama suits the online. You realize that is exactly what america media. I mean as funny. Because right. After i saw that clip of simone biles freaking doing a first pitch at a baseball game and before she throws the frigging ball he does. I like corkscrew. Flip no you know start. It was just like standing allen just like oh my god like that alone should win an award for the best first pitch ever you know. It was just so good. But i was so disappointed in the immediate. Like how so because that's expected to be. I'm not surprised with the media anymore. So in in i've been telling you this now badly telling you this but but what more thing because this is something that actually really really enjoyed and he said he wanted to get back into it so. I'm going to team rolling yeah Active hankins qualify for the gold medal game yesterday. So that's something that i do. I mean obviously not for us but against certain areas in new jersey at thanked. Rowing was a big thing. You know i mean. Nobody's rolling on hudson from diesel right right anyways rowing in hudson. But i mean that's awesome though i think That's definitely something that would be interesting to do as an adult join a rowing team. And i know. I did watch a documentary. Once where they did row Think they road to raise money or something like that but that would be. It would be pretty awesome to do good. Congratulations eight rowing Which you gotta be sancta in australia. And you have to be an extreme think because one false step and at bank and you the tip over you could lose control of the actual person in the front has to do it their own bang and then everybody has to pull or that bank sway hide. It could flip. It could stop altogether. Is it a mechanics like it. All has to is almost. Like i mean i know he use it very often but poetry emotion when you're rowing and one false step and it's over i i would say this though. I agree with everything that you say. Also say is pacing to. Oh yeah you know though out there in the first few hundred kilometers nobody you just going to be absolutely exhaust. Which i think kind of what happened. It was romania. I'm sorry. It was brush romania. Which is a really solid team for what. Abc from from some of their other heats but united states was a second for like a good portion of it and then once they hadn't heard it up. They just turned that they hang up. I'm like wow daca. We'll be absolutely just grinning like a school girl right here and it might just be a matter of me just putting on my spectrum apo here just keeping it on all day and just watching because this i mean yeah i might just do that. Just turn it on and watch. Because like i said there are certain games. I think i said this last week. Certain games that. I really just want to get in to see what people are doing but It's thinks that the main storyline is the men's five basketball team You know it's very unfortunate but we'll see we'll see how this goes watch though joe and of course this isn't endorphin for channel.

"But i don't know if this is time to hit the panic meter. I don't know how it works. Do they still have a chance. Hit the panic meter Even it doesn't matter like they're good. Hit pinnock meter either way because america should lose in that tournament to have so what happens at this point. I'm are they out of gold contention like what exactly happens. Day can still be goeke attention. They would have. They would need to win out mom and still win their block so they could still be within contention. They just need to. You know not lose anymore jackson. Well let's stick with basketball. I don't talk about that team anymore. Let's talk with a growing sport that we not growing sport but a growing trend that although we've been doing for a long time back in the of jersey city three on three basketball new newly added event to the olympic games Saw our first competition. You got a chance to watch it. I know we have some gains. Also this wednesday which should be awesome but some some games have already been played as you feel about it so far. I enjoyed the fact that it was continual action like there wasn't really a lot of brick so and for those who played the only basketball shout out to those out there a Off it's a team. Scores a bucket dick at the ball. Back you. Check the ball. In to distribute if mrs and defense team If the rebound you know they have to clear it. Less air ball you know than have office possession. That's how we usually play. It's different mater so if the offices side bakes basket is defense store but there is no checking of the ball. The defense grabs the rebound in. They have to take it out and then be able to become the offense flare me out. The defense can actually feel the ball. So there's no breaks they're still billing are actually stop. It is if there's like a legitimate foul character thing not a type of foul. I'm talking type of of so upset. So that's an interesting. Take so the boggles. The ball goes in the basket. The defense picks it up. They have to clear it outside the three point line and now they have office possession. That's an interesting perspective. So they play the twenty one artsy then. And you have to win by two. I like to win by two. I wish it was a plane. I mean ones ones and twos of course of course which is supposed to be so. I wish i was checking other basketball. But i do like the speed of it. I guess the one thing is fast. I kind of played through like that. I like checking at a ball. Only reason tricking. Because i'm always on defense. What you're saying like i guess you could celebrate big big shot but like easy to get back on like right away. I mean luckily it's only half court right But i guess the good thing is it's like if you make a basket under the ram you can now kind of just play under the rim or you know whatever it is you know so so you have to allow the defense to get to session as a ball. Okay so you have to allow keep like that become well. No no no no. That's not what i was thinking. I was thinking more of the person goes to grab the rebound in like the then the person who offense just immediately just tries to like oh my god he touched it in graphic defense rebound hatchet. Okay rebound to do stuff. That sounds. That sounds better shock or yes. I believe. it's a twelve second shot clock pretty good but that it sounds like by the time day. Get the ball clear. They're ready made. It's like seventy seconds. It's like seventy eight seconds left in theory taking taken shot. Wow the watch the. Us faced off against china. They actually are playing Japan today actually so that should be a pretty fun it. of course they're in blocking. That's awesome notable players. I have. I didn't even care our journalists. Most even care out. I miss that none on. I get a like that. That's how gauging was is the fact that i didn't care who was on court. Yeah and i mean that's a good thing is that I obviously have the big three which is ice cubes production rate kind of highlighted three on three basketball which makes sense and i don't think they do the rules like that. It's a little different knows. Maybe they'll change it To to make it become like that to make it more competitive. But i'm happy. See it because there are some people who aren't good at five on basketball right so this might open it up for. Maybe we'll see a little white man can't jump to onto now. I don't think the men's have through three too. But i mean next next olympics. I think we should. We should brian having in fact. I would love treat bowlers to three minutes. If they're still out the anti out even know that'd be great qualifying tournament You know you think about the tournament leading up to who's going to be the first to onto the first three on three team That would be an excellent tournament. So i would like to see that as well. That would be good. Any other notable games one. That i'm i'm going to try to watch if i get a chance and it's actually coming onto day i gotta see and that's archery so i didn't happen to already actually happened. Well so it's funny. Because i'm you know if people don't i watch korean dramas with my wife and i always see once every three or four shows. There's something about archery where there's somebody who either shoot scenario and i myself am definitely interested in going. I think i might do that. Ever this year might try to get into the artery but they really really take it seriously. They really are good and i know we talked about this. As far as resources you know in specific areas. And i know i didn't even know what archery was. I wish i would note actually wasn't in jersey city. I mean come on chartering with am. I doing in one month and today's show in just in case anybody wants to.

This is data amongst friend. It is monday. This is primarily focused on the olympics. Because it happened which we thought it wasn't an love today and we're going to start off with. I am deeply message on guy and that guy over there He what that guy with that ponytail and cowboy hat the comeback. But he's doc the tony tail barack. Oh yeah hashtag point brock docks. I dot com syndrome. So yes professor john. A gotti sakina on the messages. They didn't cover of fate than newly cleaned cleaner. Deaths podcasting the sheet kilo. Doc in e didn't know. How are you doing better than the men's team. I guess Obviously you are fan of missionary. Wow what they go out there they get things the world are you talking about. I guess that's our here. We're not talking about evan forty. That's what we're really to talk about the back. I think it's more than how the nba is played versus out international bolts played. I think it's more disrespect. 'cause i think i saw a mean head said damian lillard actually said this but i mean it was a mean where it showed him. He's like he's never played a day like a day in his life. Like this in the nba. But it's like. I think this is the point where they have to realize that. It's more than just money. You know like i think if the world or the nba played more like the world. You know need you take away some of the money aspect of it. I think basketball probably will be better. I've i've i mean honestly i haven't watched too much fiba too much international basketball. But you had the correct me if there are as much flopping happening in basketball that theatrics are you know. I mean obviously in the nba. You could see. The game has evolved to mirror that of the international players the euro step and some of the other things that have been done But some of the other things are unacceptable and clearly they're not working in international play Now i sent you a clip of the last forty seconds of the game against france In which we saw. I think two or three straight three point attempts to take the lead on a two point like they went down two points and it was no reason to take the three over and over and over. I didn't really understand it. Tie the game play actual defense and let's move on so glad you said that word say that word again usually actual network. Don't don't don't be a scumbag actually play actual demons because death will slack folks. I love the fact that immediately after this loss people are saying. Oh well if lebron was still there. Oh year or if. Kobe was dead right speaks. What's wrong with american basketball too. That he thinks somebody said. Kobe was rolling in his grave. I think i heard like dead that those reactions speaks in bind was wrong with american basketball. Today i even seen one. that said. they should've brought mellow back. Isn't that rough it's rough. It's rough so kevin durant wasn't foul trouble. That's one thing that was hurt. Second thing that was hurting them was so at one point in the game. France went dade dual big lineup with radical bear. Suren they couldn't stop him because the tallest person on the court i believe was kevin durant down on the is not. That tall denied faces nine. Yeah yeah so. He's defending rudy. Go bear bear is a leaching his office of arsenal that people in the nba who watched the nba has no cool doubt but he told me like that. Yeah like dame out of bio making scrub again. Different peaceful exactly olympic basketball against international. It's a totally different game. But people only folks on the last thirty seconds yes they kept clanking but if someone made the three totally different situation completely Like i said. I just felt that this wasn't gregg popovich basketball I don't know what they were thinking they were doing. But i mean obviously like people keep talking about you. Know the dream team and the redeem humidity what they had if in fact the hell the stars if other the fact that they all had aug. stubbed out there. It's because they're missing two things one defensive mentality. I don't see that in to you gotta have heart you have to and i think defensively. I know they've had some injuries. And i'm not gonna down the great chuckle win. Jrue holiday step factory. Like doc is thought would have been his washington so dumb like see if he was great at him but he's he's not great at it.

"The first olympics were considered a success. However that wasn't the case for the olympics which followed the one thousand nine hundred olympics were held in paris alongside the paris world's fair. And if you've listened to enough episode you probably realize now that peres had a lot of world's fairs. The nineteen eighty-four olympics were held in saint louis alongside the st louis world's fair. I addressed the saint louis games in my episode. The one thousand nine hundred marathon which was the worst event ever held in olympic history. Both one thousand nine hundred and ninety four didn't get much attention or publicity. They were overshadowed by the larger events were held with and they were more of an afterthought. By the event organizers the nineteen hundred games in paris did have the first women participate as competitors. There were twenty two women who competed in five events. Tennis sailing. croquet equestrian and golf in nineteen zero. Six another olympics was held just two years after the saint louis games and this one was again in athens because it was held only two years after the previous olympics. It was called the intercalated games. These games were much more popular than the previous two but they were later. Ret conned to not be an official olympics. By the you will not find the ninety six olympics on any official list of past olympic games as you olympics expanded. They added more events at the one thousand nine hundred summer olympics in london. One of the events was figure skating. Skating was held several months after most of the events in october but it was considered part of the summer olympics likewise one of the shooting events was olympic dueling contestants fired duelling pistols dummies at twenty or thirty paces. And honestly this'll be a far cooler event if it was real dueling because there'd be no need to issue silver or bronze medals nineteen o eight also saw the creation of standard rules for events and international committees judges and officials to oversee the events prior to this it was always done by the host country. What are the defining characteristics of the early olympics was amateurism when the olympics started. Peer to colbert on actually had a rather flexible definition of amateurism. Well he didn't think that prize money should be given out for the olympic games. He felt that the definition of amateurism should evolve over time however the olympic definition of amateurism eventually became extremely draconian over time at the one thousand nine hundred olympics in stockholm american. Jim thorpe won gold medals in both the decathlon and pentathlon but because he received two dollars per game for playing baseball a sport which wasn't even in the olympics. At the time two years earlier you was stripped of his medals. Nineteen twelve also saw the addition of an art competition to the olympics. Art was a feature of the summer olympics until nineteen forty eight events varied but they usually consisted of literature. Music architecture painting and sculpture. Believe it or not. There are actually two people who won medals in both sports and art american. Walter witness won a gold medal in shooting and sculpture and hungarian. Elford hodges won a gold medal in swimming and a silver medal.

"Get their name from mount olympus. Which was the legendary home of the greek odds. According to aristotle the first olympics were held in the year seven. Seventy six bc. This date is mostly accepted by historians and archaeological evidence. If it isn't accurate then it's probably pretty close. The competitors came from city states and kingdoms from greater greece who all held the same religious beliefs. And the pantheon of greek gods the first olympics only had one event called the stadion. This was a running event of distance of about one hundred and ninety meters. The greek word is stadion is where the english word stadium comes from overtime. Other events were added including wrestling discus. Javelin long jump shot put and one event called a pen. Creation pen chretien was sort of a mixture of boxing and wrestling and it was probably closer to modern day mixed martial arts. I should note that all of the aging competitors and spectators were men and everyone competed naked. The olympics continued through most of the roman period and didn't formerly end until the year three ninety three. When the emperor theodosius the first outlawed all paganism and pagan rites. The olympics were never really forgotten but it was just a historical note. Not something that anyone really had any desire to resurrect. The term olympics began being generally used for organized athletic events. There were seventeenth century. Games in england called the cops walled olympics. During the from lucien there was an event called the la olympia de republic throughout the nineteenth century. The term began being used for a whole host of athletic events throughout europe however none of them have any connection to the modern day olympics. The modern olympics can trace a troops back to french. Baron named pierre overton de cobre. Ten was an academic who was an advocate of athletic activity. As a means of good health in eighteen. Ninety two he came up with the idea of hosting an international athletic festival. That would service something for people to aspire to specifically. He wanted to revive the ancient olympic festival and like the ancient games. Hold them every four years. Unlike the original olympic games these new olympic games would be open to people from all countries on earth in one thousand nine hundred four at the sorbonne in paris. He held an international conference on sports which was attended by seventy nine delegates from nine countries. They're the unanimously approved the creation of the international olympic committee or the ioc. The ioc agreed to hold the first olympic games in athens in eighteen. Ninety six athens was selected to honor the ancient games which were also held in greece. The first games had representatives from fourteen nations with two hundred and forty one athletes who competed in forty three events. All of the nations represented were from europe save for the contingent from the united states. A full sixty five percent of the athletes in attendance at the first olympics from greece the medals given out at the first games were actually silver to the winners and copper to the runners up and these were later. Retroactively changed a gold silver and bronze to reflect the current metal scheme. The events at the first olympic games included tennis swimming shooting weightlifting fencing gymnastics wrestling and.

"To do with china. That's basically bringing an oppression number one to traditional ways of speaking about people a number two to freedom of speech. So why would bob eiger a billionaire and his board of directors all of whom are fabulously wealthy. Want to impose this insanity on people who go to their theme parks. I think there's og- corporate peer pressure to be honest as well you know. We had decades of this critical race theory permeating our public institutions educational institutions and our colleges. And now they're kind of reaping the rewards of that social investment. Okay and now. You have a lot of major corporations such as nike dick's sporting goods Espn The oscars emmy's all these organizations. That are seeing a lot of pushback from middle america. But they're still plowing forward with what they believe is the future. The established ideology of social equity. Which is just a fancy way of saying you know communist type principles and and you know we saw. We see what happens when companies push back against the dominant national narrative. They get iced out. Look at parlor for example right. They decided to not go along with the apple. Google restrictions and then they got shut down by amazon servers these companies and especially a lot of the billionaires running things at the top. There's not too many of them when it comes down to it you know. All media corporations are by six companies. They almost group think about their group. Think we're they all think the same they're all on board with the progressive left same thing in hollywood same thing in new york city in the network divisions that run a television industry. They all think the same is it because they wanna get invited to parties. I mean this into any diversity of thought at all last word. I think a lot of it has to do with that if they want to. Keep rising in the ranks of their companies if they want their companies to be able to do further business deals with these other companies. I think there is this kind of consolidated effort where they say if we all stick together and we all do this. They can't boycott of song. Okay but i do believe that. This creates a multibillion dollar opportunity for parallel institutions that are friendly tolerance conservatives to thrive in this new environment. I think so too but i. It's going to be congress getting involved in the censorship issue. That's gotta happen counselor. Thanks very much taking the time. We really appreciate it. Let's go to the trust.

And i'll give you two thousand nineteen and then this year so public school system confidence twenty nine percent. Now it's gone up three points to thirty two medical system. You see the number thirty six to forty four. that's cove it. That's the facts that's why that jumps small business. Sixty eight seventy. That's got a lot of confidence of people. Church organized religion boy. Only thirty six thirty seven percent have confidence in the churches that has really hurt our culture. And it's the churches fault largely not just the catholic church all the not responsive to the people's knees banks don't nobody likes banks. Us bream court few like them. Criminal justice system twenty percent have confidence criminal justice system.

Fallen congress is nowhere and the police fallen a little off. The george floyd stuff. There is the trust poll from gallup. Okay now why. Don't people trust the media. Let me tell you an interesting story so it was a hippies by political political is a left-wing website. We knew this was going to happen once. We announce the trump o'reilly history tour. We knew someone was going to come. Try to hurt the tour hard analysis so political was the and i have tend to do nor this stuff but president trump asked me to talk to the political reporter which i did out of respect for the president so the guy gets on a line. He sounds like a middle. Schooler had his article already written or rewritten. The trouble riley. History tour is not selling tickets very well. That was his article and then he had a lot of smear stuff against me in the peace. So i told them basically a blank himself and i said to him. You know you write anything defamatory thing. We'll see in court. Because that's what i'm doing now you defame me. You hurt me. You hurt anybody around me. We'll see in court and won five in a row so anyway the political article goes out not a lot of pick up. It was just a bs article. I mean just crap. And i gave the guy to stats. Never found a way into the article so in fort. Lauderdale florida for this show. In december all of epa are gone. All of ep tickets are sold out and those tickets are really expensive. All right in houston all ep. Sold out in dallas. All of ep sold out and in orlando twenty-five left. That's it so those are the most those are the most expensive tickets and the ones that are integrated. There are seats to all shows because we didn't do any marketing yet. We have spent a nickel on marketing. Dot nickel why. Because you don't market six months out shows are in december you announce and this is what i told president trump. I said on the announcement the announcement. We have seven million dollars in the bank and ticket sales..

"Take us back to the beginning. How did you get into doing so. I go into roaring mainly because my sister. She was very very everything. And every time i talk to the pe class the teacher would say all this is great. Because you're going to be even better than half because you're taller and you know she's really talented tennis swimming running and everything honestly was useless. Some when i did long jump tennis was i mean it was just a battle between me and my brain in the tarmac and so main you know it was just baddie more than sinking and so i just got really fed up being competitive with her. Being disappointment i thought ryan just going to try the only sport she hasn't tried and that was rowing. And i was actually initiative. Total you're gonna find this really hard and often because i was totally retool. You'll find it very hard to balance. But actually that's not quite as hot bantu tober being told is also huge advantage. Because you have these levers. And i just actually loved out. Original reminds me next. This leave as kids bring out on a river my own. I loved that feeling of moving Just downriver pushing from show being away from things and isn't as well. Yeah yeah you can really divide That rhythm and sort of oneness with something else very special and he gave me something to other people in the wasn't Playing games or through. Gary things put. It gave me this common language with other people who i could build relationships through something else and i think that's attached to it. How do we then are nine. Then that was it. The dragon school. A father was teacher lofty. Why was he holding off. Ty- housing in your father was about six seven and pretty big set guy. Surya that seventy where. My height comes from on six four. Just serve as. I definitely took off to hand and he was a teacher for many many years. And i think possibly that's where the books i've written learnings from five into games. I'm pretty sure was somewhere in the back of my mind. This comes from you know being a teacher and it always instilled in me. The importance of passing on from your experience is interested in two thousand portent that we all will progress in. We contribute to other people's experiences. In that i think is why as someone put it to me. They said you've got all this stuff in your head. It's almost like it's too burdensome to keep carrying around into valuable not to share really. Felt like i needed to articulate. All these learnings. I had over the twenty one years in the five games and all these different crews and teams hyping in and bring that into something really concise plan so that it was tangible unusable for others..
