"So i wanna go back and talk about the trials because the last time that you were here on the show in january twenty twenty. You would run your first postpartum marathon. And as we know in the process qualified for the trials Let's talk about the turnaround between running houston and then running the trials in atlanta which was just about a month apart Touch a little bit about how your body handled that transition the recovery did you do a quick taper. What did that look like. In between marathons. My body did not handle it as well as i had hoped out. You know i. I went into houston On six weeks of training. And so i think we kind of talked about that in that last high gas that we did together I had just a really rough go with postpartum running. And it finally clicked for me in november of twenty nineteen. And i decided i was going to try a hail. Mary attempt at my goal of qualifying for the olympic marathon. Trials in twenty twenty. And so i am. I set up my race at houston on which was the last day i could qualify and gave it my best shot and iran to forty four. Got under that qualifier And i was. I was really happy with that. But it definitely took a larger toll on my body because marathon is beast and you know even going into well prepared It takes a toll on the body so when you go into a underprepared it was extra challenge but You know i went. I showed up. I i had earned a spot on the starting line. So that was you know it wasn't taking away from anyone else. But i went into it knowing that i wasn't going to finish the race on because i didn't want to have a big setback I didn't want to be broken. Because i had forced something to happen. I'm my big goal for twenty twenty was just a very slowly and gradually rebelled a really strong base so that i could have some strong racing and strong performances You know later that year. And so i saw it as If i was going to finish the marathon trials it would have set me back. I would have had to take probably a month off and then completely restart rebuild and so i ended up. I'm just doing the first lap of eight miles and then I stopped off the course.

Jim Ryun's History in the Olympics

"Tell us about your history in the olympics. You a tough history in the olympics. Everybody would assume that you'd get the gold. Many times over what happened In mexico city. I was honored to win a silver medal which means second place when i came back to the united states since i was a favourite There were a lot of people are very unhappy with my performance. And i just remind your listeners. That a gold medal and the silver medal of the same size. One has a little different color. And you get a lot more emphasis in if you get second place when you're supposed to win then you considered somewhat of a failure but quite honestly is one of the greatest races of my life because we were wearing at altitude which gave the altitude living athlete. That one whole mexico city is that. I totally forgot about this. Let's go back to sixty four though. You're seventeen you make the olympic team. What happened in sixty in the sixty four olympics. I got to the second round of competition. At three rounds. Preliminary semi-final finals. I made it into the semifinals but did not get beyond that. Because you're dealing with a different type of competition. Altogether our olympic trials. Then one day. Now they do the three day as you would have in the olympics. I might not have made it through. Nineteen sixty four. There been three rounds but it was a one round competition by grace of god. I leaned finish line and made it to the olympic team.

Like it's not like we live in the countryside So i didn't know it at the time but my dad was serving rabbit from our backyard. I thought ravaged just had a short life span. I never knew. That's what i was eating. And it took all the way until i graduated college me to find out for my sister and i had to find out we had been eating. Are rabbits this whole time.

"Also you know the judges are human too like they're all trained and stuff but like if you look even slightly different if you change your technique even slightly different that catches their attention and then you know that might raise some cautions and Or make you know. Encourage them to caution you or whatever because you look different to you know. So they're going to be judging by you. Know how if you're you're following the rules or whatever but you also want to make sure you're not drawing too much attention at the end of a race because there is a rule that they can deke without any red cards in the last hundred meters of a race so if they decide that you're off the ground at the last hundred meters of the race it doesn't matter if we got no red cards during their earlier part of the race. You can get thrown. So that's another reason. Why we're not gonna Often see us We know throw down the hammer at those last hundred meters. We're gonna play. We're going to stay pretty cautious. And then also yeah. There is it depends on. There's like two different ways that they can decide to do a race. You can get three red cards and you're out if they don't use a pit lane Now they're starting to implement a piddling so were the twenty k. A the pit lane is going to be two minute so if you get three red cards you get thrown into a pit lane. Which is actually what happened. To the the bronze-medallist olympic trials knock. Does he was pit lane. So if you like see like he disappeared while often he has like this really slow lap. It's because he was in the pit lane for two minutes Because it's two minutes for the twenty k. I can't remember what it is for the fifty k. but So for that is like so if you so and then if you get a card or thrown from the race so after you serve time in the pit lane if you get a fourth red cards you're thrown out so that's just like if.

There's that whole rules thing to that if it's not on the if you're not in the top sixty by july first Then they can't confirm anything so The us usatf definitely wants to send as many people as they can. And as long as we're in in the in the ranking they'll send us But since there's that whole like july one thing And he was sixty one by july one because that other athletes hadn't been removed by july one. He didn't get the confirmation until july fifth. i. I don't think i really helped by or no. You did because. I was following his updates. And i know that he was. Yeah for a while.

And sometimes my job is slower than my than my cooled. Race walk Which is pretty interesting to me. Amusing me just from given my background with my running and stuff but the biggest Perception is just I mean we do have a technique that we have to follow. There's two rules You have to land with the straight Knee and then that has to stay Straight until it passes underneath the hip and then you know always have to have one foot on the ground at all times by the judges. I and that's what a lot of people don't understand is they might see might slow down videos or they might see pictures where they see you like both feet to slightly off the ground especially in the fast races like if you watch melrose or if you watch us in like three k. Or or when we are going quite a bit faster during our twenty ks at you know going at six thirty. Six forty pays or Seven forty seven thirty pacer faster At its but the knicks.

Damn yeah i mean i feel like surreal is a good word. A lot of good words of their. That's such an awesome story and we are going to go back to me. You know two year old four year old ten year old robin but since you did mention nick we have to acknowledge the fact that You are the ultimate. And i know i'm not the first person to say this power couple as in power walking couple. You're both headed to the olympics. And can you actually explain a little bit. Because i follow both of you and i've been following his updates but at the olympic trials. You both one your races. We knew that you were that meant you. Were going to the olympics. But it took longer for him to find out if he can. You explain that situation a bet for anyone who has not followed along. Yeah so so. You can qualify for the olympics either. By the super standard or by ranking and bore the race walks top. Sixty go I know it's different for different events but for the race walk. It was top sixty. And so for me i was i was going into olympic trials saw solidly between fifty and fifty five. I was bouncing between fifty and fifty five. So we've been watching some of the other competitors and looking at the points it's like a point calculator system that you can go online and use to see what time calculate to what and then you know different races. Are you get certain. Bonus points for certain types of races. So that comes into play as well so so nick he's he's he's very all about stats like he has spreadsheets. He he can tell you. Basically everybody's p r and what year they did it and everything you know. Like he's everything to a t. and so he's gotten all of the girl all the us girls you know so myself to. He has everything just mapped out. And all the internationals just mapped out for the race walks and he knew what events were going on that weekend because there was a lot of nationals that weekend So like even the morning of trials he he was up and he was looking at like the people who were around him on that list just to make sure what time he would need so that when he crossed that finish line he was solidly in the top. Sixty and At that time he was like sixty eight or sixty seven and And i went in at fifty five at the time at drop down fifty five from fifty from that like two or three nationals. That had occurred between The ten thousand meter chula vista race. That we did an olympic trials so for me it was like okay. I just need to make sure i win and or podium you know Obviously i wanted to. I wanted to defend my twenty k. Titles so i wanted to win But i just had to make sure i podium in. I should be at or ham.

"Also did freelance commercial modeling and stuff so my day job was working boura like attacks financial firm and then at the financial planning firm and then at night i would help photographers and in whatever they needed for productions and stuff and so i was always on my feet you making like maybe getting like three to four hours asleep at night so very different mentality than i would have when i'm an athlete mode Athlete mode. I want eight to ten hours a sleeper night. So so. I just remember. I got on. A plane arrived to that race. Twenty like the night before and then got in the first time ever renting a car in new jersey like that was in new jersey. Never bending new jersey on my own before and then first time renting a car. I remember driving over an hour because i like miscalculated where like the distance of where we already talked about this like we didn't know. Sapporo is so far away from tokyo. I just. I just thought like where my hotel was was gonna be superclubs over an hour so i arrived to that start line like fifteen minutes twenty fifteen or twenty minutes before it started and i didn't even like barely warm up. My warm up was running from the parked car to the starting line and then my dad had surprised me and flown out that morning too so it was like just in time as justice running up to the starting line. My dad like. Hey hon. i'm like. Oh hey dad. Boop the gun went off and we garden Funny like dislike the mind frame which is so different. And then i hadn't like never. That was gonna be my. I like your second. Twenty cake is the first one was in carmichael. But those were my first twenty ks since two thousand three. When i had qualified for the two thousand four trials at parkside and that was really like a training when a training during a race. Oh really. I've never done a twenty k. Like where i'm in that mindset of knowing how to properly take fluids window take on and and what like what my stomach can handle. So i just remember that whole like the whole time. I was just having fun with it. And then i i didn't know anyone. I didn't recognize anybody in the race and vaguely recognised maria Because she was a little younger than meam during my junior days. But i just remember. I came across and i didn't even know that it was a qualifier. This is like how out of touch i had gotten. I didn't know that one was a qualify for the world team championships. So when i crossed third. They're like oh you made. You made the team brad. Eka eka and then they're like oh it's in chile which was my first. I was at my first. Junior world was in santiago. So i was like oh this is kind of like serendipitous that the first team i make you know is in chile again and that was the first international team i had made other than the canam as a junior was in chile. So it's like okay. This is this is pretty cool so But i still wanted to be careful about it and see you like didn't want to get ahead of myself and but just that whole experience there.

But i think i really impressed the crowd of people that were standing there So i feel like. I brought some culture running to the marathon And you know that was definitely a goal of mine.

Thanks for having me be before we start talking about work and your career. We like to start these interviews with our lightning round to get warmed up so quick questions. Quick answers here we go. Are you ready yes. I feel weird like an athlete like are ready to. What was your first job on your resume. It was when i was twelve. I guess basically. Because i shot a commercial for adidas and didn't really know it at the time obviously i got paid for it but at twelve years old. You know my parents took care of all that and yeah little. Did i know that led me to my career today. What is the most recent job on your resume. I guess being broadcaster for nbc. Just got back from the olympic trials.

What's your favorite bars. mine to. What is something that most people don't realize about competing in the olympics. I was telling somebody this yesterday. But it's like we don't have an off season so not to compare it to like any other sport of professional sports. But we're still training seven hours a day six days a week in our quote unquote like off season and then non-olympic years competing at world championships national championships. So i think they don't realize how many years i get your entire life. You're basically trading for this moment and that also like speaking of training we get to the olympics like two or so weeks before the competition started. Just to get acclimated time change like all of that and we don't get a single day off until the competitions over so it's a lot it's exhausting. We don't get to see our families.

Richardson Will Miss Olympic 100 After Marijuana Test

"Richardson could claim to be the fastest woman in the world right now. She won the 100 M at the U. S track and Field Olympic trials last month in Oregon in her time of 10 point Six seconds made her a gold medal favorite at the Tokyo Olympics. The Olympics begin this month, but Richardson has been suspended for 30 days due to marijuana use. Here's more Several top athletes have rallied behind Shakeri Richardson after she lost her shot at Olympic glory because of a 30 Day ban triggered by a failed marijuana test last month. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes tweeting quote. This is so trash man. Just let her run Former NBA great Dwayne Wade tweeting. The majority of y'all's rule makers smoke and are probably invested in THC companies. Let's stop playing these games. Richardson won that 100 M at the Olympic trials in June. But then her world came crashing to a halt. When reports of the positive test surfaced on Thursday, Richardson put out the tweet. I am human and spoke to the Today show on Friday. I know what I did. I know what I'm supposed to do. Um, No, I'm not. I'm allowed not to do And I still made that decision. She said she had just learned from a reporter that her biological mother had died and turned to marijuana, which is legal in Oregon side of the trials, but remains a banned substance of abuse based on the world Anti Doping Code. We all have our different struggles. We all have different things we did with, But I put on the face to have to go in front of the world and put on my face and hide my pain. Who am I to tell you how to cope? Who am I to tell you? That you're wrong for hurting. The United States Anti Doping agency said The typical punishment for a positive THC test is a three month band, but it was reduced to one month because her use occurred out of competition. And was unrelated to sport performance. Don't judge me. I am human. I'm new. I just happen to run a little faster. Richardson is still eligible to run in the four by 100 relay. That event occurs after her 30 Day suspension ends in late July. The final two members of that relay team have yet to be named, leaving the door ajar for Richardson's possible participation.

"Going to promote that for fest is doing. I guess is the way to put it with you today. It's aria. The reverend kempton kick ass is here and chris and the olympic committee. We were just discussing. It's i'm interested to see how this is actually going to play out because the public outcry about this athlete. Being banned for smoking pot has been intense. Good it should be. it should be more than intense. It should be so intense that they actually rescind the banning. I expect they ultimately will but who knows. They're making a series of stupid decisions and that doesn't seem like it's going to change anytime soon. New york democrat representative alexandria. Ocasio cortez claimed friday that the rule barring marijuana use during the olympic races was quote an instrument of racist and colonial policy. Now i can see why she would say that. It's racist right. The drug war has always been racist. But i don't know how it colonialism gets dragged into it except to you know. Make all the left us out there. Happy oh yeah. Donald colonialism yeah. Her comments followed the announcement that us. Champion chakari. i guess. Richardson will not be running in the one hundred meter race after she tested positive for thc a chemical found in marijuana at the olympic trials. Voiding her first place results it. It amazes me that the olympics are still testing for pot. how did the jamaicans. Getting into the olympic. So much less bobsledding competitions right. Richardson a black. You gotta be high to be jamaica and go. We're going to become bobsledders not this kind of come up with unless you're baked man. Richardson is a black woman from texas and she was given a one month suspension which precludes her ability to race the one hundred and tokyo but means she could still be in the running for the women's relay race as the trial will not be held until after july the twenty seventh. So they're basically so she could do part of the olympics. I guess you read a bit in there. That said voided her first place results but it sounded like they were only testing. So i don't understand. How can somebody have first place results if they were only testing. What's that's a good question. I i imagine there's some sort of trial run. Sorta like so like race cars. Did the pulpy been the race. She would've been in the first place so she's obviously very athletically able and talented when you get into the olympics. If you're not right. But i mean like she's able to produce first place type result yes but she smoked pot at one point disqualified. Yeah i don't know about that i mean. Didn't we go through this with. What was the name. The bicycle phelps right where he like you know he won and then later on. They're like oh he's a pothead and so they like took his metal away or something. I don't remember the exact see like stimulants or something like that being a reason to have people or disqualified lake. I don't care like you know what caffeine port for drug. Let's just allow people to use performance enhancing drugs. Let's see how far people can get this thing carried away. Let's see how far they can push the limits of human capability. Why is there any stigma at all about using performance enhancing drugs generally because they're unhealthy and they give an unfair advantage to the people who choose not to use them to destroy their bodies and their minds in order to compete against people who chose to destroy their bodies and minds. I mean you know. I like futurama's take on this. You know. basically performance enhancing drugs. Steroids were mandatory instead of against the rules. That way. everyone's same playing field again. If you want to be a professional athlete you got to inject these steroids. Or whatever. like if there's some anomaly out there that's one hundred percent natural that can compete with folks who do the performance enhancing grade. They should be allowed to compete. So i don't i don't like banning people for whatever substances in certainly marijuana is not a performance enhancing drug is just not but then on the other side. I also don't want it to be mandatory for if you wanna compete. You must take for that. Was that was a joke. That cartoon made i mean. Isn't this of come down or back to like nationalists in the idea of different nations and you know them wanting to like there's certain things they want don't want basically to me. It comes down to a matter of private property and private organizations. The olympic committee is allowed to sell. Whatever will they want. And i'm allowed to say those roles are stupid for telling people they can't smoke pot and still be. An olympic runner is stupid so she was actually banned for three months but she agreed to participate in a counseling program. A drug counseling program for smoking pot and that got it reduced to one month. We she did participate but she agreed to participate which reduced the punishment from a three month suspension to a one month. Yes the criminals ization and banning of cannabis as an instrument of racist and colonial policy occasional. Cortez said friday. The international olympic committee should reconsider its suspension and any athletes penalized for cannabis use because richardson is not the first twenty-three-year-old gold medalist michael phelps. Who you mentioned earlier received a three month suspension from competition and lost his kellogg's sponsorship after a photo emerges the showed him smoking marijuana pipe in two thousand nine. That's they took away that. I don't think they're okay. Sorry kelloggs nike kept their sponsorship of richerson in spite of her smoking pot phelps. A white man from maryland. Don't see how that's relevant never actually tested positive for marijuana but acknowledged photos authenticity. The photo was reportedly taken six months after the two thousand eight olympics and his suspension ended in time for him to compete in the two thousand nine world championships. He went on to say. I am human and no. Richardson went on to say that. She's human as she was triggered by the death of her mother. Definitely triggered blinded by emotions blinded by badness and hurting and hiding hurt. I know. I can't hide myself so in some type of way. I was trying to hide my pain. Which is we talked about is kind of understandable when you learned that your mother died totally and so she smokes pot at now. The olympic committee has suspended her saying that it's a performance enhancing drug presumably it. It's unclear i don't understand. I don't understand it with any sport. Even the olympics. You know any sport at all the nfl's big on this if you test positive for marijuana your bench to your cut or whatever really yeah yeah. Nfl still has a heinous marijuana policy. Even though like a bunch of nfl players smoke weed. Right they've been blessed many times. Somebody gets pulled over leaving the club. Oh look bag of weed right you know. And then they go and they test. Whatever that kind of thing so results suspensions and if you're a multiple offender then you could face getting cut. And i kind of stuff. So it's very harsh against moore and marijuana again not a performance enhancing drugs show me the clinical study on marijuana that says hey if you smoke marijuana. You're going to be a better physical athlete. Well what about the fact that marijuana is legal in a lot of places throughout the united throughout the world so yeah so what if an athlete in. Just use the nfl. Because we've been talking about it And year you play in colorado right the state that you normally your home games one is marijuana's legal and then you travel to. I don't know where is it not legal. You hampshire new. Well they're not gonna play hampshire but Yeah but we just need an example. We don't need it. I mean it's foxborough massachusetts -chusetts where the patriots played a team. Travels there from colorado mass. Well this isn't a doesn't sound like it's about legality is sounds. It sounds like it's about roles of this particular organization. Yeah but they need to get rid of rules. That are stupid right to stay relevant. Yeah it's totally dumb dumb and especially considering.

"Zachary Richardson. If you were not a sports fan, even if you're a hardcore sports fan. She's in an Olympic sport that does not get the attention it deserves. Track and field gets that law when it's an Olympic year, and the U. S. Olympic track and field trials were unbelievable, over two week span at the University of Oregon. She was going to be a gold medal threat in the 100 M because she won the 100 M of the Olympic trials, but she had to apologize on Friday morning for testing positive for marijuana. The United States Anti Doping Agency on Friday announced that she has accepted a one month suspension and in accepting that penalty The results in the U. S. Olympic trials have been disqualified and she will forfeit any metal points and prizes. Travis Tigard is in charge of the U. S. A.

It's a really tough and Sympathetic case, you know, as my statement said, when we had to handle it when it was reported positive to us, because the rules you know, gave us no choice whatsoever. Um and she, you know, acknowledged the situation and did treatment as We, You know, worked out with her and gave her the absolute minimum of one month that we could, but recognizing that also who you know, automatically disqualified her victory in the 100 M. You know, we were heartbroken by it because you know we're not here as an anti doping organization to, you know, deal with recreational or non performance or non health threatening. Situations. But, you know, we have to follow the rules of the World Anti Doping Agency, which are the global rules that apply around the world. The two problems I had with the decision. Number one people making excuse of chicory Richardson. Chikara Richmond said that she knew the rules. She said her use of marijuana as a coping mechanism at the finding out her biological mother had passed away. I understand that

Yes, so the meteorology behind it is pretty interesting. Very wavy jet stream lots of undulations in the jet stream and basically, it's elongated from north to south.

After i've done a good run. Like i like the way i look much better and i can't explain it. Welcome to how to. I'm science writer david epstein and. I'm also a runner. That's been harder to be this past year when the pandemic hit the phrase stay home if practically became a social mantra sitting on your couch and watching net flicks was literally. Everyone's duty to humanity. Physical activity changed and for a lot of people. Exercise routines were totally disrupted. But now as we re emerge. We're all trying to get back in the of things and push ourselves toward new challenges. My name is shannon collis senior editor at sleep. I've run three marathons. And i'm training for my fourth. And how much are you running right now. Like ten miles a week. I really. I'm just about to start ramping up for training but i get really lazy about it when i don't have that week. One on my schedule shannon's anything but lazy when the new york city marathon was canceled because of the pandemic she still ran the race. Just didn't look how she thought it. Would i signed up for the virtual new york city marathon which is a lot fancier sounding than it is involved me for twenty six point two miles or actually like twenty six point five miles because i really wanted to make sure like. Gps wasn't messing up and going to like screw me out of getting my little spot on the leaderboard but for shannon it wasn't tracking the miles. That was our biggest challenge. It was motivating yourself to run. When she was all alone. I had done it earlier in the summer for slate about people who ran virtual races and i went into reporting that with attitude of like. Why are you paying sixty dollars. One hundred dollars to run around your own neighborhood when it came time to really think about the training for the race i paid new york roadrunners sixty dollars so that they would send me a medal in the mail afterwards. If i finished it really needed that motivation the ways we can use our brains to trick our bodies indexed ordinary feats a physical endurance are totally wild and totally amazing.

Oh by the pool. And it's little skinny. They don't wear do you think he's got his bathing suit under his suit when he's working on on the broadcast there. I was watching the olympic trials. They were interviewing. Felt like you know what. I haven't been inside an auditorium during a or whatever they call it the in aditorial or whatever it is for the place where the pool he goes my blood going. I was getting hyper getting hyped. Up and i was like take the served with the ball. He is not coming back. Yes mclovin he packs for tokyo. Does he put in any bathing suits at all. Like no no no goggles. No skivvies seniors division. Like a thirty five in august think he needs. It is the most decorated olympian in history. Come on that board. It is weird to see the coverage though because you seen bolt is doing coverage of track and field. Michael phelps doing coverage of the swimming. The two most famous athletes will probably olympic history. Yes you wouldn't watch some kind of aquatic seniors center. Nothing you would not want know. Somebody's out there in is no though. I'll wrinkle up not at all after a week of checking major league. Baseball finally caught a pitcher's using illegal substance or at least the umpires believe they did the guilty party yes. It's the guy that you thought it was going to be. The mayor's hector santiago. But i said he didn't use anything but rosin once again baseball finds itself in a sticky situation they took san diego's glove. They shifted to new york for further inspection. This this wasn't exactly csi new york. And i think they took somebody sandwich bag and then they put the club snot bubble chain of custody guys. Yeah that nobody touch this glove and then like five people who are handling the glove to put it in the bag and so that's going to new york and i know that this feels like it's deflategate here. Santino faces a potential ten game suspension. You'd think he'd he'd be the first of many here. And i maintain that if you know that there's a police officer about a mile up and he's got his radar on. You're not going to speed when you go by that police officer after you get past him you probably would. And i thought there'd be a grace period where all the pitcher would play nice. They're as would suffer their spin. Reach would be down batting. Averages would go up and all those things have happened. They're going to get back to doctoring. The baseball it just. Our pitchers have barely hidden the fact that they've been using substances that are now deemed illegal and they sit and everybody said it's about control..

How Becs Gentry Trained for The Olympic Trials Through Work and the Pandemic

"You started seriously training were you. Obviously you are a running coach in every possible sense of that word. You've coached others. You coach yourself. Were you coaching yourself. This or did you work with a coach. A friend or someone else to put together a training plan specifically for the trials. So i tried for the collar of weeks that say To train myself and i think from just having so much time off of being in a training schedule and we didn't stop teaching Over a couple of weeks right at the start of the pandemic where we needed to reset and figure out what we were doing. So what for me was pretty regular nomo. I was out of sync with how to get my training scheduled in line with what schedule and winter to be blunt. Yeah neo-windsor it was. The thick of it was just that point where it's cold wet at night december november where the wind. I live pretty close to the wolves. It feels like. It's always windy. So i i think my boyfriend kind of so may struggling with structure. I try and do it. And then i kind of didn't care if i didn't do the workout i had prescribed myself because there was no accountability and he suggested a friend of his This is his austin stephen cash he is a base.

Down innovation. he's a freezer pretty pretty cool guy. And he lives out in arizona so he has the elevating his messy I'm not giving him an easy pass. But he really hard worker in a fantastic or not. So austin Why don't you speak to cash your friends.

Athlete Chris Mosier on Being a Trans Athlete and the Queerness of His Sport

"Everyone my name. Is chris mosier my pronouns him his i am a How you just stumped me in the first question how you want your audience to know me. So i am the first out a transgender athlete to make team usa. I am an advocate activist for transition in sport. My mission is to make it easier for every person who comes after me to make sure that everybody knows that they have the opportunity to play the sports that they love and be their authentic selves. And i'm the founder of trans athlete dot com which is leading resource for trans inclusion in sports. And will you also talk about your sports specifically like what. What is your specialty. Yeah definitely this is fun. So i started off as a triathlete when i first transitioned actually before transition identifies a trans man. I was raised in socialized. This female grew up playing girls and women's sports but in two thousand ten decided to make medical transition transition categories. Kind of the short version of this is that. I wanted to make sure that i didn't lose my opportunity to play sports and so delayed transition for a while before. Actually the saying that transition. Because i didn't want to lose my ability to compete in sports so triathlon was the first part swim bike run and then i moved over to duathlon so duathlon is run bike run. It's a lesser known sport. It's associated with triathlon. It's super fun. And i don't like cold water so it's perfect remain and then last year in january twenty twenty. I went to the olympic trials for race walking so i was first trans man to make it to him. Men's olympic trials and i was in race walking. It was a sport. I picked up the year before Because i know somebody who is race walker and they recruited me and it was super fun. Okay this is this is. I'm sure the question that you get the most often after saying that. But how difficult is it to not break into a run when you are race walk. I just want to really understand the mechanics of like. I know my body can go faster than this if i do this other thing but the rules are right right right. So are you familiar with the rules. Let's talk about it. Yeah no i. Don't i mean i've seen it. I've certainly seen it. And i would imagine. That are very specific. Rules on what your body can do. That has to be true right right right right so the difference between a run and race walk is that your leg has to be straight when it hits the ground so your front leg has front knee has to be straight when it hits the ground and then you can't break that knee so bended until it's under your body. Ramen other thing is that one foot has to be on the ground to the human eye at all times so it has to look at if you slow down wow will do liftoff but so it has to look like you are on the ground at all times with one foot. So how hard is it like. It's funny that's not. Actually the question that i get the most the question that i think. I'm pretty interesting with my nose. It's around race walking like come easy on yourself. Question i get the most around race. Walking is was it harder to come out as a trans man or as a race walker. Which i love because it was way harder to come out as a race walker at this point in my life. If we're being honest. I didn't tell people about it for a while because i was like super because it's like the queerest sport that i could think of t tried to to go like You know in in the most wonderful

Canada, Australia will not send athletes to Olympics because of coronavirus

"If there are Olympic games this summer if Canada will be there the Canadiens grabbing headlines Sunday evening when their Olympic committee announced that they would not be sending athletes to any Olympics in the summer of twenty twenty Australia hasn't gone as far as Canada well the Australian athletes have been advised to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics to be in the summer of twenty twenty one because an Australian team quote could not be assembled in the changing circumstances at home and abroad the IOC's Sunday saying they will be exploring their options for the Tokyo games over the course of the next four weeks a worldwide group representing Olympic hopefuls and their supporters has been pushing the IOC to officially postponed the IOC's been steadfast in the past week plus saying the intention has been to hold the games are scheduled but there's been quite a bit of push back Sunday the IOC making its announcement that it would take a month to examine things Christine Brennan from USA today earlier on ESPN radio they had to do that by the international committee president Thomas Bach a former athlete himself actually with boy cut it out in the nineteen eighty Olympics so he he understands the plight of athletes including opportunities and and how difficult that can be now the president of the international Olympic committee and he has really lost the athletes shockingly as a former athlete himself he hasn't been responsive kind of Nero fiddling while Rome burns and he had to do this today and what what happened was that he thought a letter statement from the international Olympic committee basically saying that they will now be here the athletes to hear their concerns I think that the driving real difficulty training they're concerned about their health they're concerned about the well being of their family members and friends that they might be training with if if they're going for the Olympic Games what is the status of Olympic trials around the world a venue that the ability to even find a swimming pool to swim and that really came to time Olympic gold medalist kicked out of the Indiana University poll because they closed then kicked out of the YMCA three time Olympic gold medalist kicked out of the Y. is living in Indiana that's the plight of these athletes right now in the midst of all of our restrictions and understandable concerns about the pandemic and so Thomas Bach the IOC president finally got it and having lost the athletes you trying to win them back by saying he hears their voices he hears their concerns that it will be for weeks now that they will spend looking at the options the weather all the games this is another July twenty fourth August ninth in Tokyo which seems unlikely or postpone them which is kind of like turning a battleship not like postponing the NBA or the NHL or moving the masters and the British and the Boston Marathon guys this is a whole different thing to move an Olympics would be extraordinary and unprecedented but that's what they're looking at right now and look at themselves for weeks that decision do you think you made the right call Christine because I know that he use the word premature in terms of making a decision on whether the Tokyo games will be played but given the uncertainty around the corona virus and the number of leagues worldwide that have either postpone their seasons canceled their season said you know we're gonna put a pause on this and come back in twenty twenty one and we think this will be gone do you think that the Olympics should have taken that same approach are you where do you stand on the side of what Thomas Bach said today right Cordero I think I think that's the only decision you could make because they're trying to kick the can down the road a little bit and you're actually right other athletes who are endangering their health by continuing to train we don't know the answer to that will know if and when someone had positive for coronavirus and and that will probably be the definitive answer to your question that would be unfortunate to get to that point but you have to be NBA shut down when they had back with her to go there I think we may well see if that be the case even though it's a very different scenario because athletes are training all over the country all over the world and often they're by themselves or with just one or two people drive like they're in arenas that are full of fans it's it's a different scenario but I do think we cover the Olympics since nineteen eighty four our coverage you know never intern summer nothing surprises me about with the international Olympic committee will do and how to lead and to stand out of it they are and so with that in mind I think this is probably the only decision they were going to make because they want to take a little more time but my sense is postponement is on the horizon even though that is incredibly difficult for a city like Tokyo that they're preparing for what seven eight years for the moment obviously this is so much different than just moving a tournament a few months or even a year because of course as we know the Olympics are once every four years Summer Games once every four years later and often for those athletes at the once in a lifetime experience which I think is one of the positive body image on the committee might be trying to save the game even if it can be seen at that so negative in so many ways I understand those who defame postpone right now but we'll get there give you that answer very soon and hopefully all athletes will remain safe while they're continuing to train professionals say they'll take the next month and figure things out the Olympics if delayed for twelve months wouldn't be the first event pushed to twenty twenty one the Dubai World Cup is off until
