Olympics Re-Lived: 2008 Beijing

"Beijing Olympics of the first Olympics I watched extensively I vividly remember be home doing what she did in. Athens. But for sort of wall-to-wall coverage, it was Beijing for me and I just remember the venues being really cool. The bird's nest, the aquatic center looking futuristic and yeah I just lapped it up. Do. You remember the dramas at the opening ceremony. That's kind of a rule about a conic moments matt. I think that is the conic moment isn't it from Beijing? Yeah well, I would say you same bolt is the I call. Of this the sport yes I'm going. Non You talked about venues and several. Yes opening ceremony iconic moment. Yeah. They also remember all the re. There were lots of theories about the pollution in Beijing and that being there's always some sort of controversy drama in the lead-up. Olympic. Some sort of reason that's being peddled in the media may be completely legit often is about why the Olympics is going to be a massive massive failure. In Rio none of us were ready. We didn't get that with London twenty twelve here. I'm sure in other countries they did everybody was sort of united in positively about the Olympics but in Beijing was the pollution because the the factory I mean everywhere in China in factories in urban areas in China and they were well first they relocated. I know from personal experience, they relocated a lot of the most polluting factories from Beijing to other parts of the country in particular to Ching de. meaning that on my visits to Chengdu roundabout that time it felt like my throat was burning every time I stepped outside because the pollution in the smoke was so bad. In fact, the final of the champions tour event. that. I attended in D. had to be halted because nobody could see the ball. But In Beijing I mean the police was was far less bad than fit but they hid seeded the clouds in order to make it rain in the lead up to the Olympics to clear the air they were controlling the weather. Can come here and do that. Yeah. No, I remember thinking what if it's that easy to make it not reign. Why we faffing around with you know? All the time.

Scot Prohaska on Total Athlete Development

"Scott. Welcome to the show. It's awesome to have you here Min. Banks. or It's something myself and my team we listened to you guys all the time on on just fly sports It's got a requirement for anybody that works for me to listen to your podcast though. They'll thank you. Yeah. It's awesome to have you. I mean, I know every time we've talked or I've I've just more and more intrigued by what you do. Because I, know you're not like you're not all over social media. You know you're not. You're but entire, I've just like I am. So I wish before I left. California could've stop by and really excited that chat about your. Your your insight into your system and how before we get into that I'm curious to like and I like getting into this for especially for people who have who see things in such an expansive way. But what was your gateway into coaching like what got you interested in it, and then what were some really big milestones in changing the way that you thought about your process? Yeah I, you know quick Reader's Digest version is. A pretty good athlete grown up back East right and had scholarship offers and was fortunate enough when I was in. Eighth Grade. To walk in the YMCA, fine little dungeon part where all the tough guys athletes working out in in. There was a level five Olympic lifting coach, and saw me with my little fitness books working out and said Hey kid Chimera. I WANNA teach you how to really train and while I was in eighth grade I started training with. Professional, athletes Olympic, athletes learning how to snatch clean squad sprint hurdles. Everything. So was a amazing experience for young kid be pulled into that kind of culture right away. Top properly. And then after. Know went into finance world business world is kinda miserable, but I was always getting fathers and guys played college football with call me when Scotty? Knew so much about this stuff. Helped me, I got a contract or my kids to a scholarship, teach him and I was doing it on the side and just fell in love with it and started growing in saw business opportunity, and then got called sportsmed guy in Toronto like the work I was doing and went up there and started running its clinic work with NHL guys in Canadian Olympians and stuff like that. It just grew from there kind of an organic way of. Loving it as a young young kid. Being, lucky to have someone mentor me and saw how it changed my life, and then fell into coaching. I feel like you're not the. For, some reason the finance and I didn't like it, and then again, the sports perform I. I've heard that story before I. Don't Mac Shakers on here had that too, and I feel like I've heard others. Maybe I do feel like that that like systems kinda thinking or do you think there's any thinking and finance that is helpful for sports is just make quincy dental you are. I think it's I think it's for competitors. We'll always WANNA look at measures of success. And that's kind of a natural thing. Until you realize I work, I work hard to get something and I realized I. Don't like it when I get here, that might not be success but I think finance is a challenging. Competitive. And and you know with detail and all these little nuances you can take and I think that attracts people to feel they wanna feel successful right, and then you realize you're sit in front of a computer all day long. Yeah. I. Can totally see that. Makes that makes sense I. You're speaking of success to ask the first thing. It's official question. I had and I just I guess, I, felt like starting with this rather than jumping right into the six lanes but. What is success in sport mean to you or? Yeah. So. What it used to meet. Right. So we all have these objectives and goals right, and we think that success when we meet that, we're going to be successful when feel successful yet, what happens when you need it? How long does they last for me? It lasts maybe five minutes and then I'm spending the next stuff in saying, okay. GotTa, start grinding now for the school and realizing that my daily experience wasn't great. So, success for me sport or any endeavor is your daily optimize experience that's sustainable over time. So if you're an athlete of Your Business Guy, whatever it is, if you're living your dream, you're loving your days, you're making a contribution feeling fulfilled. Ben. That's success to me. And so that's how I look at it when I get an athlete that. Wants to scholarship, but he's loving the training loving where he isn't high school having great teammates. Great relationships performing on the field. Every day is not future. You know obsessed all the time that successful to me. That makes sense with the process, right? Like. So often we just look at this. What's the goal? Win The Akron serve get the scholarship, but then, but then what I mean. Eventually it just. Eventually. There's think an emptiness. I mean, it's Nice Scholarships for sure. But at some point you get to the top and. Maybe realize you're on the wrong ladder something, but it's Where I've dealt with the most Olympic athletes after an Olympic year while they struggle. Mightily, they struggle with purpose with focus with what it all means. Up the disappointment of even if they got a medal, did feel as good as they thought. But the daily optimal experience their love in their life in the training or joining, they're enjoying the relationships are building that seems to be sustainable

No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens

"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?

Abby Wambach: If you're not a good leader on the bench, you cannot call yourself a good leader on the field.

"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen. Today, we have a very special guest joining us abby Wambach is here with us on skin from the couch she is a two time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA World Cup champion, and a member of the national soccer hall of fame. Also, she hasn't slowed down in retirement she is now a New York Times. Author and equal pay activists. We I had the pleasure of meeting abby when we spoke to her wife, Glennon Doyle on the show in March and we dragged her onto the podcast as well, and if you haven't listened to that episode, go check it out. It's a good one abby. Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the catch. Yeah. Thanks for having me. I'm so thrilled and honored to be with you all on three different couches. Thou-. Before. We jump into our first question I have to tell you I was looking at our prep for this and there was one bullet in here. That has really made me laugh as I have to share it, which is that you used to have a special card that got you a free Burrito a day from AAA but it stopped working when you're retired that seems passive aggressive for sure to Poli what the F.. Yeah. So when I first got this card, it was Gosh I must've been ten years ago now and you know like the gold cards portly for life like essentially my name is on it and you guys don't know how I go way back. From the early days and I mean I would get a Burrito. Day You guys we're both creatures of habits. I respect this. Yeah. It was crazy and this is before we really knew how many calories were in each burrito. Bowl that I would make or Burrito early days. and. So then yeah, of course when I retired, I was super excited to still be able to get one free Burrito a week for year, but they never really checked up on it but then I think when I got a family when I married Glenn and attained. That you know fifteen dollar meal. Turned into a sixty five dollar meal or seventy dollars meal for the whole family and pull was like I. Don't know if we're GONNA keep floating this for her so. It was a good run while it lasted I'm sorry that you've struggled with that but I did make me laugh as read. So, we're going to jump into our very first question. We'd like to ask everybody it just skim your resume skin my resume. It's so funny because when you retire, that's like that's essentially what I've had to do over the last four or five years of my life since retiring from playing on the national team, and if people don't really know I played for a long time on our women's national team. So Ski. My life I'm the youngest of seven children I grew up in Rochester New York, and I went to the University of Florida and played soccer there for four seasons where after I was drafted number two by the way just remember this folks you don't get drafted number one. You can still succeed I was drafted number two out of college to go play for a team called The Washington freedom the best player in. The world at the time. Mia. Hamm played on that team and it really changed my life because we were able to develop a connection that then transferred into me getting called into the national team and playing on the national team in scoring goals in the national team, and then I had a pretty long career representing his country won a gold medal. I want a couple of medals actually I won a fee. For Women's World Cup. World. Cup. I should say it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl that's pretty awesome in my retirement I have kind of taken on this activism role that when I play ironically when I played I was a little bit more like just go and do my job and we were going to show our activism rather than talk about it. But when you quit playing, you gotta actually transfer that. Because I can't play anymore I can't show it in the ways that I used to. So I've transitioned into becoming a public speaker and an activist and apparent and wife, and that is my skin. Has a great skin? What is it like to be really good at something where young 'cause I have? No clue. Yeah I mean it's confidence building you know I felt like. Okay. I know that I'm good at this thing over here but I think you know all of us have our little things right? Like no matter what kind of. Place we grew up or family we grew up in or what kind of trauma we we experienced as a child because we all do some of US feel like we're unlovable my case in particular some of us were neglected. Some of us were over parented like we all have problems inside of our family dynamics that for me really allowed me to and gave me the courage to propel in this kind of an individualistic career. So when I was young I kind of was a very big risk taker. I was a free spirit is what they called me, I think that's what they call children who don't follow the rules as much as their parents want them to and I think that the other side of that coin is I was really trying to get the attention of my parents, right. So the very thing that might have felt trauma or hardship from in my childhood is the very thing that made me successful. So I have to always remember that like as much as I as young as seven children. As much as all of us wanted the attention of our parents, I do think that kind of parent team actually shaped me and and allowed me to explore this competitiveness inside. In this drive and this embiid to go after what I needed and what I wanted. So I give a lot of credit to that form of parenting into that trauma

Get to Know Lindsey Vonn

"Heard last week's episode cows good time to go back and check it out. We collect, introduce yourself I am when's Yvonne? I won the Olympics in downhill skiing I'm from Minnesota and I am currently engaged to peek a SU- ban of the New Jersey devils and have three dogs slap makes you a rebel girl I mean I'm a rebel girl because I've always followed my dreams and a really high goals for myself and I think that's what being a rebel really means you know striving for greatness and being the best that you can be. Simone had to make some hard decisions in order to proceed gymnastics. What were some hard decisions you had to make on your way to becoming an Olympic skier I? Think every athlete honestly has to make hard decisions especially if you WANNA be in Olympia and I'm the oldest of five kids and my parents had to decide. To our entire family to Colorado from Minnesota and so that was a huge sacrifice for my whole family But we all did it together and I wouldn't have made it without their support, but it was definitely a a really difficult time for all of us. Tell us about the work you're doing with the lose Yvonne Foundation well. I'm really proud of what I'm doing with Lindsey. Vonn Foundation and I actually started it when I had my second ACL surgery and so a little complicated but ACL is like your main ligament that crosses through kind of the middle of your knee, and that really is the stabilizing ligament for your whole leg and. Very critical, obviously for skiing. So it was a very long recovery and. The second ACL surgery I had in two years. So needless to say, I had a lot of time on my hands and that was a positive of that injury was being able to start my foundation. In your knee tube series career day you interview notable women and fell female athletes what inspired you to start the series. So career actually started because I was trying to think of ways to keep kids motivated during the coronavirus lockdown. Was Not being able to go to school and doing some online stuff and. A lot of kids that were involved in sports had a really hard time. You know they couldn't practice with their teams or coaches all the gyms were shut down. So I just wanted to have them connect with their heroes are idols, and you know kind of keep their minds focused on the future and not what's currently going on. So you know kind of connected some of my scholarship winners with heroes in in their particular field know Caroline Wozniacki, Misty Copeland Ballerina. have an astronaut that's coming on I just have some incredible people and their these kids that have these scholarships are able to talk directly to their heroes and. That's something that really is profound to me because when I met my idol peekaboo street when I was nine at an autograph signing that was really the reason why I wanted to become an Olympian. So I hope that this interaction with these people allows them to really stay motivated and focused and know that the dream is actually achievable. Gown is a big part of skiing and gymnastics. How do you get back up? I think falling is a part of life you know. Maybe gymnastics and skiing, and it's a little bit more physical but I think we all have obstacles in our lives and You know the the the fall or the obstacles really the important part. The important part is knowing that you can pick yourself back up and keep going and learn from your mistake. Mistakes aren't bad unless you don't learn from them. So I always look it falls as opportunities to learn opportunities to get better. And we're inherently in our entire lives always gonNA fall, but we have to have the strength to pick ourselves backup. Many of our young fans help to pursue their sport professionally. Do you have any advice for young girls who dream of Competing in the Big Leagues? You know the biggest piece of advice I can give you is. Always dream big and work as hard as you can always give one hundred and ten percent. You know if you always give your best, you're always going to get the best outcome and no matter. If that's winning Olympic gold medal or competing on your high school team or making it to college or getting scholarship you know everyone has their own. Best you know, and you just have to work

Books Ive Loved Neil Strauss

"Hello Boys and girls ladies and Germs Tim Ferriss. Welcome to another upset of the Tim Ferriss show where it is usually my job to sit down with world class performers of all different types, startup founders, investors, chess champions, Olympic, athletes you name it to tease out the habits that you can apply in your own lives. This episode however is an experiment in part of short form series that I'm doing simply called books I've loved I've invited some amazing pass guests close. Friends and new faces to share their favorite books describe their favorite books, the books that have influenced them, change them, transform them for the better and I. Hope You pick up one or two mentors in the form of books from this new series and apply the lessons in your own life. I had a lot of fun putting this together inviting these people to participate and have learned so so much myself. I hope that is also the case for you. Please enjoy. Thanks for having me back to talk about some of my favorite books and I wanted to do something different today, which is I wanted to recommend some books that I've never recommended before on this podcast and that I haven't heard other people recommending things that people may not know about I wanNA turn people onto some new staff. That's like so central to me. So My Criteria were, what are the books where I've underlined the most amount of things some of these books that I'm going to recommend I literally have underlining or marks on every single page. A have kind of involved system. I use to mark books depending on the residents of the idea and different things going on in the book. The second thing is brought together these books sort of. Encompass like. The body of. What I think right now, the kinds of things that I write about and posted on instagram and teach in coach and have had so much value in my life and change them, and I'm going to walk you into them from. Let's say the simplest book to the most complex from one that's just so easy to read to one. It's almost like a textbook safer into these the beginning and see how far along you get I. Love All of these. They're really great on the path to understand yourself and who you are and the obstacles again, your way and where he's self sabotage in your relationships and. Real. Freedom. The first author is Sherry Huber and I wanted to tell you about her past but I looked it up online and I can't find anything there. So I don't know if it's public but as a child Sherry, probably faced one of the worst traumas a young person can ever. Go through and only survived it. She became a Buddhist monk. Ever met in my life I. Think She's one of the most. Centered. Wise. Powerful presences I've ever been around there's just something about her that. I can my I would like to get to one day. I really would she writes tons of books I'd love to read every one. And her books very simply written just still to pure wisdom almost like a wise mentor is giving you the advice. There aren't like supporting arguments and footnotes in research studies is just like the wisdom from high on the mountain. It's also unique font where part of the story and the power and the impact of the words is done through the font and style of writing changing as well. The illustrations by June shaver or could be shiver. The illustrator in the book so really. Looked through all her books read anything but I'll share with you the two that have had the biggest impact on me. Actually to read but I would want to read the rest. But I started with fear Book and fear book is so powerful because so many of us. Have a certain area where fear and doubt and uncertainty get in our way, and the book walks you through the of of of how to embrace them and move beyond them, and often it's very counterintuitive. But so true I highly recommend this for dealing with it and want to read you one quote from it. I WANNA read a couple of quotes from it. And her basic idea is that moving toward your fears and getting past them is the path to freedom and I love this part. And her books by the way very short hundred, fifty pages at most. She writes if you no longer believe what fear tells you you will live and it will not. That is a point on a spiritual journey that almost nobody gets past when the terror arises. When it gets backed into a corner and a matter of its survival years almost nobody has the required combination of courage desperation willingness to stand up to it.

Yeah everybody thinks like it's A. Job looks like Josh right here. But if you have really gonNA spell, we probably with a Y Y Y. Que you or something like that since last name just totally jacked up. The I I'm not GonNa lie when saw I think maybe it was when you asked me to. Be On your podcast dry your podcast before I thought it was Josh. So I apologize I just wrote in my little notes I put. Okay You M. so hopefully that eleven maybe that'll resolve things a little bit. So just for everyone out there that'll. Thousand my that was my iteration. And that's where we just have to get to a point as a coach and a company where people in the not to say. That's one of our goals. People say Yoga the right way yeah. Yeah. That'd be good. Creative Project Austin. So I know one of the things that I really like about looking at your work is I. Know that want to know you're really creative coach always love I know this is GonNa be an awesome talk and I was curious you did football I think track a you're into strengthening conditioning. What what was your formation in your years as a college athlete and then your choice to become the type of coach that you are now? Yeah and I think it's funny that you say I'm a creative coach because as a player I was anti creative like from from the very day one. Started lifting in high school with Olympic lifts like straight. Olympic. Style. Monday Wednesday Friday, all we did was clean and jerk clean snatch, and then maybe some bench presents watts and just the differ variation of that and. I mastered swore by those for so many years. That's literally the only thing I ever did. If. We sprinted if we did anything maybe some ladders we did but. The entire program was Olympic lifts swear by it was awesome in highschool got really strong at that. Thought that was the answer. When into my first year college at Saint Thomas Football Kaikan on the field first day we actually lifted before we went on the field we lifted and I was like smoking these guys like smoking on cleaner jerk like doing. More than a lot of seniors on their all I'm here I arrived I'm sweet a freshman. Football, we go to the practice that day and I I my mind was blown I had no idea was happening speed the game was different. Everything was different I'm move to like a robot out on the field and just moved terribly and I started the. To all right, what's happening in the weight room is not what's happening on the field and I need to find a way to bridge that gap and that started the full journey and I think it is a journey because then it was west side stuff on my. All right not the Olympic stuff. Now it's west side. Now it's the powerlifting. Now it's some box. Johnson plow metrics advance to my are still stuck in that weight reminds set of. Bands the bar now GonNa be faster and it helped a little bit I moved just a little bit better. But I think we're just because I was destroying my body a little bit less than the weight room and I still a little bit slower on the field and it was just this journey than it was bilateral to single lateral. Then it was traffic training and this this full hodgepodge of things but never fully breaking out of the weight room mindset never breaking into the movement onset and by the time graduated. At Saint Thomas I had some athletic success on the field and. But it was in a way of I forced myself into a mold of athletic success. I plays Nose Guard and my movement options were very small and I was watching other players and I was doing a job that was required to do doing his thing. I'm field that is required to do but the game move fast for me everything move fast for me I had. Very little movement options I had one may maybe one pass rush move and I was good at the pass rush move. But I didn't have a lot of options people next left and right and me that works out in quotation worked out a lot less than me that they had way more options and that's really where I started to dive into how can I get more movement options for myself? How can I move better? How can I give my athletes the ability to? Now that you have a huge output, you're able to lift a bunch of weight. You're able to sprint really really fast to do all these things. How can we give you options to do this? How can we give you? Can we slow the game down a little bit for you and that's Kind of a little bit of where we started the journey of where Rats Day and hopefully the journey continues for the next ten to fifteen years I can look back at this podcast.

20 Minutes With The Founder of Hyperice

"Any athlete understands recovery is essential an arguably just as important as the workload itself to achieve peak performance in recent years even among amateur athletes, we've seen a growth and acceptance to what's the necessity of taking the time to really focus on recovery. But what has actually entail for one year muscles require time rest and particularly plenty of sleet repair and grow, but taking the time for active recovery such as stretching. And Foam Rolling Yoga also play a large role in keeping the blood flowing and helping rebuild from intense physical activity. You're listening to twenty minutes fitness and I'm your host Martin caster twenty minutes fit is partly powered by shape scaled up and three d body scan that visualizes your body composition photo realistic three in recent years technology has rudy started to supercharge the fear of active recovery there methods such as icing cryotherapy. Percussion therapy also commonly referred to as massage guns, compression therapy. All the way to infrared sauna have been long used by various. Bro Athletes for recovery for today's show, we've invited highs founder and CEO. Anthony, cats hi FIS has been one of the leaders in the field is known for its iconic products such as the hype vote massage gone the Viper vibrating foam roller as well as the compression sleeves their products have. been used early on by NBA stop there such as Lebron James and the late Kobe. Bryant and today there aren't they use by pros and all the major us. Leaks the English premier league as well as Olympic athletes. We chat more about how he first got started with icebox neoprene and also take a deeper dive into the science and also some of the best practices behind some of these recovery methods and devices. Hi Anthony I'm excited to have you on the show today. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself to kick things off? Yeah. So my name's anthony cats on founder pipe price. I founded the company about ten years ago it started out really just as an arm project like I was before this I worked in education was a high school teacher I was married to professional. Athletes and I was still really active and I still play sports and was sort of looking for ways to improve my body and sort of slow the aging process and I started my by started kinda get more soar after do things and you kind of start to see like the wear and tear you know grown up in the in the Dark Ages fitness in the ninety S. People used to basically do bodybuilding it wasn't very functional and that control my body in in. So I start looking at like, what would it winter pro athletes doing? You know because obviously they put the biggest premium on. Their bodies and sort of the new kind of things if there was anything new that they were doing that I can adopt and when I did sort of the research on, it was funny like the word recovery didn't really even a quiet sports like that. We use it now and there's a category now but they're back then. You know recovery meant like alcohol recovery or something you know. It didn't mean the same and so the industry was really dominated by like sort of these like medical device companies that would make products that would live in athletic training room for in professional sports and mostly what guys were doing for like you know just. To recover faster faster was was ice was ice tubs. Getting, getting a cold tubs and then, and then they were icing their joints and then if you getting a massage in athletes paper massage and stuff, and that was kind of that was kind of what the recovery will look like in two, thousand ten and so I figured okay well, you know if you can't really market a cold tub but athletes are icing their joints every day and they were doing it with plastic bags and ace route or Fight in every single day. Yeah. It's really wasteful and just like you know it's just not really convenient leaks in you know Dallas is kind of what they were doing. So it Kinda struck me and around this time two, thousand ten. So beats by DRE was relatively new. You know they debuted at the two thousand, eight Olympics and the Osa basketball guys were wearing them kind of adopted this idea that you if someone wearing something right and you know if I could make something that was good enough for like pro athletes to wear that people would see it on them and because it's on their body because it would be like wearing potentially like wearing them, you know on the sidelines or Photos, in your starting, it was Kinda before instagram. So it wasn't really the access to like the behind the scenes of what these guys do is not really the same level of now because I feel now we have a much better window into what what sort of the athletes are famous people do in their you know when the camera's not on. This kind of struck me. If there was a documentary called the last dance about Michael Jordan and it was showing how different famous then where he was the most famous person in the world and he'd get off the team bus and they would just be like a thousand people waiting at the hotel just like watch him walk in the door and we don't need to do that anymore because now everyone has we see what people do in the cameras. And we have twitter, right? Yeah and so people and and then there's way more content right? So there's just way more content of like, okay. What is sort of what is an athlete? Do? They're not court in got used to be pretty mysterious people in an intriguing so I figured that if I could make an icing product because athletes have to is every day people see maybe what sort of kind of catch on A in obviously not a school would beat because it's music that's universal but I still felt like young athletes might adopt it. So I had the idea to make like a really cool looking is compression device, and so I started researching therapy. The. Compression was import element of it and I had. A friend of mine who's a college basketball coach was regularly working out with Kobe Bryant and in Kobe was known as the biggest like that. He he is more than anybody and there was articles well-documented about how he really took care of his body. So I thought if I could make a prototype and I could show it to him and maybe you know maybe get into weirder sort of my thinking and I showed it to them I. so I literally was cutting up wetsuits and going into like wetsuit factory's GonNa live in a beach community southern California. So like there's some of the old Lexi factories that are still around back then so I was kinda compression sleeves and then taking ice bags from like you know from like rite aid or whatever, and and and just kind of like putting them together these compression sleeves. Trying to make something and you know he was really receptive to the idea that there could be a product that would make more efficient and it would actually look not just be so wasteful. So I a couple times in he kind of gave me some really good criticism that was constructive and what I realized like this can't be an art project like this is not how businesses have to like if I'm. GonNa do what I gotta do it. Right. So I gotta go get like. So I was calling manufacturing companies and it was during the recession and people weren't really interested in talking about no experience at all and just sort of this but one company believed like, okay. I kind of had proved that I was like interacting with Koby in the disciplinary doing for him and they kind of just took a flyer on. Maybe we'll try helping sort of developed sort of come the extra separable and so took about a year I. Got I, finally convinced him to do it. We took about a year to kind of develop the product properly I had the idea to put an air release valve at is bag because when ice melts, it creates like air pocket in compression doesn't work because it blocks a compression. So if You have a button that releases the air. The compression always makes contact with the ice and then you get your eyes compression therapy and that's that's the whole idea behind it was that I would watch guys ice and then I would see these like there's a big air bubbles forum. It's like because the heat from your body is exchanging with the ice and then that creates natural gas, which is A. Form of like air and

A weight of gold is a far cry from the typical athlete profile packages we often see during the Olympics. That's why I was just like, Why don't I just ended on Olympic icon Michael Phelps and Mohr Open up about the darkness that almost let him To end his life and his fellow athletes that have died by suicide.

The families sometimes moves along with the athlete, so they gotta prove there's no money in this thing. So you win and hopefully get a sponsorship in cash. It's all personal sacrifice. So much of it starts when their kids yes. You know young kids and being taken to the pool or the ice rink or wherever. And this just deals with ones who actually make it to the games from the seven. What about all those kids who don't make it who lose up the trials, and they've invested all that same amount of time? I've done more in the Obama. That's probably another documentary among the folks the interview short track speed skater Apollo. No, Everybody knows him. You mean short track speed skating, not a huge sport.

The documentary says About 80% of Olympians experience post competition depression. The weight of gold also mentioned several who committed suicide among them, Ariel skier Jeret Speedy Peterson.

The Tokyo Olympics have hit the one year to go mark again, but few are in a mood to celebrate. Tokyo observed the original date a year ago, that was before the covid nineteen pandemic postponed the Olympics and pushed back the opening to July. Twenty third twenty twenty one fireworks cascaded over Tokyo Bay back then and local celebrities unveiled the medals in a highly choreographed show. There's none of that this time. Organizers produced a fifteen minute. No fans event on Thursday inside the new national stadium, screening a video to promote next year's opening. They also teased the presence of the Olympic flame, which arrived in Japan in March and had been hidden away ever since.

Former Kansas State president Jon Wefald on college football amid pandemic

"Dr John We follow the former president at at Kansas state. Thanks for spending a few more minutes with a doctor. I wanted to ask you you mentioned. Where the college presidents are, but but some have pushed back and said while it wall. It is a dangerous decision to green light at cancelling. It might be even worse when you consider the financial risk You've sat in those chairs. You sat these NCWA committee meetings. You've been part of negotiations. What's at risk for college athletic departments and colleges themselves? Paul I'm already there because there's not going GonNa be a college football season this year, so I mean. Look at the the big ten's already canceled. But forty two games the the PAC twelve is canceled like thirty six. So and in the presence are are are in charge of the entire university. So you know when I hear Ross talking. I understand completely. He's got every scenario looked at. But, even if everything's perfect there and you get a multitude of students getting the covid nineteen, the president's are going to call the season off, but here's the deal I'm already. Looking at the consequences, and and they are bleak. the University of Minnesota did A. Long Study and was in the Minneapolis Tribune. Let's say they're athlete budgets one hundred, twenty three. And if there's no football season for Minnesota and the big ten. Their athletic budget, just kind of in half and say for. Let's say the sixty five power five schools. Paul. There's no football this year. Their athletes budgets are close to cut in half, and in some cases more in some cases less. But will you saw Stanford I mean Look Stanford is one of the richest universities one of the best universities in the world, and they've already cancelled eleven, so called Olympic Spring Sports and. You're going to see other schools in the power five conferences eliminating. Those sports left and right here in the near future, because they won't be able to afford like at the University of Minnesota if they go from one hundred, twenty, three, million and that budget's cut in half. They're GONNA have to start eliminating sport, so it's going to be devastating. Who wants to eliminate sports? But here you've got this great school. Stanford that's already eliminated eleven, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. And so for Kansas, state. Let's say our budget is like eighty five million well, it would go down to thirty eight to forty million, so we would have to cut sports to. So the consequences of the limited, he's coaches and telling teams We just can't afford anymore and their moms and dads are furious. No it's GonNa be very painful. And Athletic Departments Are Really important all of our schools and. And you know if you lose half your budget because of this pandemic call covid nineteen. Oh i. tell you what it is. It is GONNA be so devastating Paul I hate to think about it because you know once that college football season half the budget for most of these half-baked departments. It's gone into the night. Actually, we feel. Let me go back. Something I I know you've answered it and I don't mean to be repetitive, but. Okay, but we talked to people and you've. You've addressed one or two of the interviews and. I'm struggling because there's such a disconnect I'm talking to people every day. I had commissioner on from another conference earlier and they're optimistic. Glass half full and all this, and then you're. You're not even. You're not even taking a breath and just saying there's not going to be college football. The same thing you seven months ago and I'm I'm trying to figure out you know. If what you say is true. Why are they saying with? They're saying. Well. I suppose you could call wishful thinking. I'm a quintessential. I'd be doing the same thing Paul was. president or Director today. So I I, would all the I mean I'd be doing exactly what you're saying. They're saying. If you're not sure you don't think they really believe it. Well I. Don't think they've really looked at it. Seriously I don't think I think. Really. Underestimating is enemy called Cova nineteen. It's everywhere in in some cases in America is on the uptick, and it's had an increase that you know a lot of places are. Kind of dangerous to go. But you know I see. Here's the deal this covert nineteen. Let's say here. We have sixty five universities. In, hundreds of athletes and coaches that wanted to do a perfect job and start the season on September fifth and go through twelve games, and so forth in the problem is. They're not in control. This is an enemy. That's everywhere. Kind of little communist, running all over the place from China. And so they could just wake up one day and find out that three hundred fifty students at Kansas state have developed covid nineteen.

Peacock is live: Heres everything you need to know

"He caught. The last of the big streaming services has finally launched nationwide, but at joint a crowded room, streaming services, including busy, plus and that Blix. So how does this stack up? I'm Roger, Chang into your daily charge. Beckley I don't have to answer that question because with me. Is Our media expert, John? Salzman and software services. Reviewer Alison. Danisco, welcome both you. Thanks all right so John with you. He is live after having launched in Beta mode to caucus users a couple months ago, so so give us a land now. What is the streaming wards landscape? Look like this is basically the last of the big new services to land at least as far as we know. We had apple and Disney plus come in November than we had depending if you consider it bigger. Bigger not clubby came in April followed by Hbo Max in May, and now finally we have peacock, and it's a little bit different than the rest of those, because it not only is, it has big budget originals big back catalog, like most of those other services do, but it's also doing some other things that are digging a little bit when the others I it has. It's going to have live news. Life sports other sorts of news and sports replays highlights that kind of thing and crucially has a free tear at as a tier with advertising we can watch about two thirds of the catalog just by signing up and not paying anything there are ways you can take out the ads and unlock the full catalogue if you WanNa pay, but having that sort of on ramp that free just sign up and start watching thing. It's something that these other big services in the streets haven't tried yet. Yeah, I would just sort of generally speaking. Have we talked about the free cheering a bit but? In terms of these other players out there have any cover merged as must have service to rebel Netflix's certainly a streaming service, the new streaming service that's landed with the biggest slash by far is Disney plus. One media analyst when it launched last year there was one media analyst and widely followed one who called it one of the greatest product launches of all time. To give you a sense. Track Google search trends around these launch dates, and the Google search trends for Netflix are a good baseline. You know it's established. It's always very popular as a search gives you a good baseline of how other services stack up and people, search addressed most of these other services. They haven't crossed the level of net search interest, even on launch days, whereas Disney plus like quadrupled the amount of Netflix interests on its launch day now it's come down since then, but among these new services Disney is the one to beats, and nobody has even come close so far. Are also you've been testing out the service. How has the experience on Peacock Ben? Overall I've been having a really positive experience with peacock so far to be honest. I wasn't expecting all that much. Since we do already have Sumani streaming services, but the fact that it has this free tier is John mentioned where you can still watch. Tons of movies and TV shows with ADS does make it stand out from competitors like Netflix and Hulu it gives you something for free that similar to say a Pluto TV or a to B, but with this premium streaming. Streaming service interface, so it looks really good, and you also have the opportunity to upgrade if you want to. It's pretty easy to navigate. It has a few quirks, and there are some features that are still missing but overall. It's a solid free surface at launch. If you don't mind watching those ads in terms of that that user experience that the navigation the experience itself. How does it stack up against DISAPP- loss or Netflix's or some other more Polish premium services so in. In my mind, peacock isn't quite trying to be a Netflix or Hulu or HBO Max. It has a similar tile layout, and you can browse things by TV shows and movies and get recommendations, but it's kind of doing something different, and it's probably not going to replace any of those others for you, but it's something you can get for free to have more options. It reminds me a little bit of Amazon prime video in a way like on that one you can get. Get, a lot of shows and movies included as part of your prime subscription, but you'll find others mixed in that. You do have to pay for so on peacock. You'll find some shows with a little purple feather in the corner, which means you have to upgrade premium to watch them, but they're so plenty of free options to. And since we're in this time of economic uncertainty, you know free services a welcome option, even if you don't watch it every single day, right? Joan. Beyond this free tier is there anything else about peacock that makes stand out, or the folks should know about? Yeah, definitely, the frontier is obviously the first thing that people are going to encounter when they try to sign up and they realize they don't have to provide any sort of payment information. Start watching. But beyond that you know. Being in the pandemic, there's a lot of things that peacock wanted to have available right now for its launch that aren't a manifest really until next year or later, for example, the entire reason that it's launching right now in the middle of July is that originally peacock witches, NBC's streaming service thought they'd be able to piggyback on all the interest in the Olympics. That should be happening right now. Is the broadcasting partner for the Olympics in the United States, and so of course everyone remembers every Olympic season how there's just like blanket coverage on NBC. All of NBC's other cable channels. But because we don't have that until next year, that's a huge driver to get people interested and knowledgeable that that the service exists. That just doesn't exist right now. Also their originals. They have nine original series at launch, but just like everybody else all their production of new content. At least any live action content had to be suspended in March, and so they don't have as much in their pipeline. That's going to be ready to release win. They had hoped to release it as have if we weren't in this situation where everybody's lockdown the also could you break down the? Tiers, obviously, there's the free cheer that's at basement. What are you getting with those I? Think there's two different paid tears. He kinda run through them. And you actually get sure so in the free tear you get thirteen thousand hours of TV shows, Movies News Life Sports. Some of the biggest name shows you'll find. There are and Recreation, Thirty Rock, law and order. Order Svu but you know. Some of those are also currently on Netflix and Hulu to so there's some confusion there potentially, and you also know that the office won't be coming to peacock until January when it's calm when his contract with Netflix runs out, but in the meantime you'll also find current episodes of NBC shows one week later on that free tier. In terms of movies, you've got some big slightly older hits like Jurassic Park the Bourne identity, the Matrix and also newer kind of Oscar Z. ones like phantom thread and tally, and so for something. That's free. You'll probably find something. You WanNa Watch, but then you'll also find these two paid tears. One is five dollars a month which gives you access to the full Peacock Library which is about twenty thousand hours of TV, and movies, but you'll still see ads on that one. If you WANNA GO AD free. It costs ten dollars a month and you'll get still get that full libraries well. A few things you'll find on the premium tears, but not the free tier are all of the episodes of peacock originals, the major one launch being brave new world, and you'll also find more new movies and also next day access to new episodes of current. NBC shows one interesting thing that we haven't really seen before is that you'll get early access to some shows like late night with Seth Meyers and the tonight show. Show with Jimmy Fallon the night that they air, so you can watch them at eight PM instead of eleven thirty pm, but that would actually start until those shows are back in the studio and not running from home during the pandemic. Okay We've talked about this before, but they're just too many strips out there. They're all asking for money. Yes, peacock has a free tier, but there's clearly they want people to. Upgrade to these premium tears. How does market support so may services Comey Services? Can a household actually afford to pay for so from the experts that I've talked to and the research that they've been doing? It seems like there's a couple of interesting things going on one is that the total number of streaming services that people are subscribed to and are trying is going up now. That's partially because in the. The pandemic so many entertainment choices that we normally would that normally would keep us from streaming aren't happening right now, and we're all locked up in our homes, and so it's the primary way other than regular TV. Your needs that you would entertain yourself when you're stuck at home anyway, that's to do with it, but even before the pandemic. We were starting to see that all. This wave of new services what starting to tap higher, the amount of services people were trying and also subscribing to. But what we've found in the pandemic from the research that I've seen as that people are also much more willing to cancel subscriptions so. It's mostly price sensitivity factor as you know. Jobless numbers are soaring, and as people are reconsidering howl. They dedicate their money every month. Once they hit the point where a free trial ends or this ends. They're more willing to quit. Because they become more educated on other options that don't require payment that conserve their entertainment needs, you know. Alison, she mentioned to be There's other ones like that. That are free services that peacock sort of straddles the line with people are realizing that they have those options to if they don't WanNa, keep paying

Hey, Remember the Olympics?

Why It Matters

05:12 min | 3 weeks ago

Hey, Remember the Olympics?

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

Uh-huh Ya all these white dudes and suits are staring at the savages. Throwing spears around. I have no idea how this would have been judged but also there was any competitive event called ethnic dancing. I if any of that sounds racist guys. That's just because you're paying attention. Yeah that does sound racist. Also sounds like Philadelphia when the Eagles won the Super Bowl in two thousand eighteen idiots literally climbing greased poles javelins. 's loincloths Moynihan. Actually a good deal of white people trying to do ethnic dancing around. That's and that's real. The police literally preapproved the Globe and People's to all the greased poles people hurt themselves and deserve it that nine reserves. I was in Philadelphia. Word hub sent them a loop for hoping he made a big K Y. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah I I do. I love that when Tom Describes the horribly rancid bigotry of the early twentieth century. Your first thought was yeah. That reminds me of Philadelphia Right. So also what point. For the world's fair there was supposed to be a bullfight really in an arena in St Louis. Really an arena. Purpose built just for this bullfight and that might have been. Okay I guess except for the bullfighting. Except that right before the bullfight itself someone remember that. Saint Louis actually had a law against bullfighting. At which point they cancelled the bullfight. Just before was scheduled to begin with a full arena of paying customers. The crowd totally fucking unimpressed by the sudden realization that they were standing in a custom built arena made for something which was presumably illegal before they lay that first brick so they naturally demanded a refund for their bullfighting tickets. Just as naturally since this was Saint Louis. They were told to go fuck themselves. So the crowd. Burt the arena to the ground. So Saint Louis all right all right. Can I have my money back now? I started giant. Fuck and fire okay. It's nine hundred four. How come back and go wrong. Thankfully nobody was hurt. And that's because all of this happened on a Sunday which is a day which I guess is earmarked for Church and bullfights but not only you know they say this whole thing mixed this exhibit with the Philippine Exploitation. One in front of the crowd and have made a bulldog problem. The only problem is that after one. Time chasing that red cloth the bulldogs out of breath and nearly dying because dogs are unethical. Everyone has a time traveling gypsy. Gods for a pet seesaw. A number of new foods were also introduced to the world or popularized during the world's fair. It's been widely claimed that the waffle cone was an invention of the ferrets. Total Bullshit not true but Dr Pepper was actually. I in flew on the world here okay. For the day. It was healthy compared to most other doctors. And IT'S AMAZING. A number of other foods such as hamburgers hot dogs and ICE T. We're actually also popularized at the fair but the only reason I included this paragraph. Here's because by far the most iconic was daughter of slaves any Fisher who whipped up some of her soon to be famous quote beaten biscuits. Oh my God. Daughter of slaves was selling beaten biscuits at the fair. Also there was a full-size elephant made entirely out of all mints. And you can see a picture of that thing. It's insane that's nuts actually comes actually not. I think now that we know where he's at. The Hague should definitely prosecute Dr Pepper for war crimes. They could find pneumatic Dr Peppers the best. Your Hitler you talk. Yeah love the taste of dot matrix printer on the Fritz. You Dr Dr Pepper. Right now as you want but like twenty six other flavors they combine. They asked the guy who invented Dr Pepper. What it tastes like. He said I wanted to case like a soda. Fountain Smells Guy who invented it could come up with does then. There was the Olympics. So America's first Olympics actually was here and the marathon which. I promise that I will get to right. Yeah no because there's so many failed to get to the words in their title of the episode right away. It's a cardinal center. They should be mercilessly for it forever. I get it.

No elaboration I want it to be rhythmic gymnastics and he uses the legs they do with the ball. Yes just pole vaulting. But just the poll. Just go go gadget leg well. We reached time where Tom would normally be making fun and offer not getting to the topic yet. So let's take a break for Apropos. Nothing what do you say everybody Right kids now remember if we get separated. We're on our own forever. We Know Dad. That's right now. What shall we see dialing will see the world of the future? Are you have an exhibit on me? Voting what will they think of next? I want to go to the racism. Ten Tech Race is all right. I'll write little. Timmy is a nickel.

How FAST IS HE About a third as good as at twenty twenty highschool semi-finalists. This is the most fun we'll ever have before we die. Nineteen thousand four. Aren't you glad you were born now? So we left off talking about the exploitation of native peoples and a huge national spectacle. I mean the chiefs did just win the Super Bowl. What's always is new anyway. Tom Bill Kansas. All right see so so. Let's talk. Marathon I guess when you and I think marathon we probably think of a twenty six point two mile race there. Probably some other details there but that's generally a good starting place now so for the auto box free thinkers done in Saint Louis. The Saint Louis Olympic Marathon was just over twenty four and a half miles. Oh has laid out from start to finish ISH. Ish GotTA close the best way to tell you the stories to tell you about the first several people who cross the finish line in order of that crossing though not without first describing the code but they couldn't get an exact just distance. Yeah right I. I hope they did. Was they realized they were short. The last second and then there was a gym teacher make. Any new wind sprints back and forth across the finish line up just two more times around the track and touched. The lines touched a lot. Pick up the eraser all right so the day of the race was hot. I mean it was like really fucking like like late August in Saint Louis fucking predictably hot. The heat index the day of the race was one hundred thirty five degrees. Okay let's in nineteen thousand four. They were doing that in ninety four. That's just like a fat guy. Going outside and sweating for a few seconds being like one thirty five. Come on Frank. Be Scientific hold this mercury. I say a self described by a race official as quote the most difficult a human being was ever asked to run over metal. Think they were wrong. The roads were covered in several inches of lung. Choking dust there were seven hills on the course ranging from one hundred to three hundred feet. Ecorse wasn't roped off in any way for the runners nor the roads maintained or repaired so large rocks and stones were strewn across primitive dirt streets. The runners had to dodge crosstown traffic horses audible. Pedestrians trains trolley cars. Yeah okay all right but so far this is what is what does every morning but with Haley. He's right there. So the race organizers also and I am not making this up in an attempt to discover how well the human body performs and severely dehydrated hersely only put into water stations along the entire clerk at mile six and one at mile twelve. No other place to get. That is one tough race okay. Let's put the sniper towers here and here all right. That sounds good. Where should we release the Tigers? I sixteen now. No that's the spectator. Circular saw blade toss. It can't do it. They're always at sixteen. Okay let's fourteen. Then that one's the hand grenade hot potato portion of the mile eight. Oh my later work.

Congress has asked a question about it in these letters and the most interesting thing about the questions that they have not only sought business records financial statements and things like that but also communications emails from some of the celebrity founders of the companies and and other communications about these issues. Tracy says clashes are expected over what documents get turned over to lawmakers makers the House investigation comes as tech companies are facing greater scrutiny in Washington. We also report that national security officials and tech leaders have I've been working to better protect. US elections facebook organized a meeting at its headquarters in Silicon Valley last week our DC the Rahman says the meeting laid bare the tensions on both sides for all intents and purposes intelligence and tack didn't work together at a two thousand sixteen and now there's this understanding that Russia was able to manipulate public discussion through facebook and twitter and Youtube and that there were no guardrails. Nobody knew how how to stop it but at the same time there there is this tension around how much tha companies can actually share with the government. Everyone wants to avoid to repeat of two thousand sixteen but it's not at the expense of just handing over user information in the tech companies have a business imperative right. They can't just do this because people will leave their platforms and get angry at them and they'll be continued regulation and you know new laws could impair their ability to do business but you know from the government side they they want more too on so there's this tension that emerges in this meeting and it shows that the relationship they're still working out the kinks and fourteen months before twenty twenty and you can read the full story about the meeting on our website wsj.com or on the W J APP. The US Justice Department is investigating sexual abuse within US Olympic organizations the following the case against former national gymnastics team Dr Larry Nassar currently serving ineffective life sentence for sexually assaulting women and girls. The Federal Inquiry Creek comes ahead of the two thousand twenty Olympics in Tokyo joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca O'Brien Rebecca. This seems like a widespread investigation allegation which groups have you found that are under investigation right now by the Justice Department so it is a wide ranging investigation and it's actually I think best thought of as multiple investigations that interconnect and the important bodies to think about here are the US Olympic Committee the Center for Safe Sport USA gymnastics and and USA Taekwondo and the FBI which is sort of a side issue but think of it as like a layer cake right this mitigation which is being led by multiple offices offices in the Justice Department along with irs criminal investigators is looking at bad actors who are coaches or doctors in the gym level of various Olympic Sports. It's across the United States and then secondarily. There's an investigation into potential cover ups and maybe financial and business wrongdoing by the national governing bodies are N. G. Bees like USA gymnastics or USA Taekwondo and the third level here. Is You limit committee to the big overarching organization Asian. They're looking you know as well their response to sexual abuse allegations another potential financial wrongdoings now how big of an impact did the Larry Nassar Sir case have on the current investigations. This was pretty blockbuster case shook up the world of gymnastics in the Olympics too large extent what I think I mean the Larry Nassar case it slowly began building came first surfaced right after the Rio Olympics more than three years ago now and what I find incredible is that what the Nassar case not only did it first of all you know hundreds of women came forward with allegations but it really also opened shed light on all these other cases like in USA taekwondo or there had been allegations and some mm cases convictions of coaches that had kind of been lost to history and these this repeated. There's a trend over decades of misconduct induct and sex-abuse in a number of different sports that no one really had paid close attention to on a grand scale so the national case really not only was had a tremendous impact on on gymnastics in the Olympic Committee but it also just opened the floodgates as it were now we are looking ahead to the twenty twenty games in Tokyo what under the implications for the US Olympic system as we have been talking about the Nassar case did cause a lot of damage to the institution yet national case did a lot of damage image to USA gymnastics but it also had some blowback on the US Olympic Committee because of executives there who were informed of it and didn't necessarily take steps that many people in the public thing you know they they didn't talk about it more publicly. They didn't take steps to advance the investigation and they leave with egging their face and what is important about these investigations. I the thing is that they show the continued legal pressure on the USOC. There's political pressure with also legal and potentially criminal pressure on some of the executives or former executives of these organizations and going into twenty twenty. They're going to want to resolve this. I mean not only do you. WanNa make sure people are safe going to the Olympics but also it looks bad if the USOC he is heading to the next Olympics with this cloud of uncertainty and investigations over their head and of course you know in nine years they're going to be hosting the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles so oh you know we'll see how they resolve this Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca O'Brien.

"Ken swift is a break dancer in case you don't know he's kind of a big deal in hip hop to i would like to be introduced as ken swift from seven gems new york city and what the seven gems hip hop movement ken was a member of the rock steady crew and the reason we're talking to him a dancer on an economics podcast fast because break-dancing looks like it is headed to the olympics it's been provisionally approved for paris twenty twenty four just needs one more vote to seal the deal and ken has thoughts what's about that i mean i think it's pretty cool i mean me personally i mean i grew up with sports i love sports i was an athlete before i even started playing records and one thing i have to say is that i don't think that breaking is a sport because of that because i have that experience break-dancing economics in sports we really do it all here i totally but there are other similar less traditional sports also heading to the olympics in tokyo two thousand twenty you're gonna see skateboarding sports climbing which is rock climbing and surfing and kansas he's cool with the decision to i'd breaking to the olympics he has a lot of friends who are going to be involved and he wants to support them all but but still there is a lot to think about like how the international olympic committee the and break-dancing are going to get along you have to understand dance something they have a way of doing things the works in specific ways you know there's all types of different things happening you know that you would see and hear about with olympics so how is that going to affect the art form i don't know you know we were going to just have to wait an and let time do it it doesn't see how this all works out for you so you may be wondering why something like break-dancing might be headed to one of the largest international sporting events in the world while one reason people aren't watching during the olympics like they used to organizers hope that adding some jazzy new sports may draw in more eyeballs what does that mean for the athletes and for those new sports that will be under a global spotlight for the first time i'm sally herships on today's show we're going to look at olympic results not scores scores the athletes get but the impact on the sport of going to the olympics for the first time support for this podcast and the following message come from google domains google domains helps make your business a reality with the tools and partners for building your website site liker pro and premium security features and included for free make it happen et domains dot google slash NPR break-dancing may may be headed to the olympics and it's actually easy to understand why viewership of the olympics has been disappointing of late the winter olympic viewership has been falling for years and for the summer olympics it's been kind of flat for the last decade or so so organizers want sports that are going to draw in more viewers and those sports include things like skateboarding and break-dancing using the process for adding a new sport to the olympics is long and it is complicated but when sport makes it through or over all of these hurdles and reaches the olympics olympics there is a name for what happens next we sort of came up with this olympic balance the olympic bound says tom cove he's the ceo oh of the sports and fitness industry association which researches participation in sports tom looks at why people play sport and why later they might quit a sport in the olympic balances for certain sports that get a participation increase immediately after the olympics there are the sports parts that we love year round football basketball yes the pace for then there are sports that we love to love just every four years that is the olympic bounce it is the name for this weird pattern that happens around the olympics when we watch swimming and gymnastics track and field because cardiff are you ever gonna buy tickets to lake up track and field events like some kind of dash that is not happening around the olympic no but when the olympics do come around on you can rest assured that i will pretend to be an expert in all of those sports i can talk about him by the water cooler it's gonna be awesome i totally new will look after the olympics there's a kind of lingering effect so participation rates for example for some kids they go up olympic sports like swimming and gymnastics that's that's what's referred to as the bounce for the year after the olympics are over participation rates in these sports still goes up but in that second year after the olympics end well yeah well you see a reduction in participation and then you see sort of stabilized take swimming before the last olympics there about two point eight million swimmers but during the here after the olympics everyone's excited they saw michael phelps and that number of swimmers it spikes to three point three million i kinda get that that by the way michael phelps winning all those metals everybody's like yeah now i'm gonna you know consume ten twelve thousand calories a day and it's been four hours in the pool will totally be another year passes and reality sinks in and carpool time and corine in your hair are and start to burn up right and you realize maybe you're not heading for the olympic maybe you're shy about putting on speedo totally speaking for other people not me so fewer swimmers the number goes back down to just over three million so that is the olympic bounce there's this big spike then a draw bob but ultimately if you imagine a little line chart in your head overall the line is going up in other words even with drop off after the olympics there are more for people swimming than before and then once the olympics come back around in that fourth year well they're gonna get hyped up because obviously the television network worked broadcasting the olympic games wants viewers to tune in NBC wants to promote the olympics 'cause they have the olympics and they also promoting the sport and more and more comes out and all of a sudden you get all these college players and then you've got high school players and they see it on TV and now you have a pro league that's evolving and all of that is the way it really grows both from a participation in an economic impact point of view so what ends up happening is that schools middle schools high schools all schools they invest and parents sign up their kids as for private one on one lessons and we haven't even talked about all the equipment yet nose plugs bathing caps uniforms helmets and there's another you're kind of bump that being added to the olympics can bring you legitimacy tom says take a sport like snowboarding already kind of a big deal but the olympic kahlo ehlo can make it more acceptable so if you're a parent and you're kind of worried that your kids are like out there doing crazy tricks off the side of a mountain you might not let them but if it sounds sounds more legitimate now you're thinking hey maybe i'll get the kids snowboarding lessons maybe i'll let them do backflips or whatever maybe they will go to the olympics and win a gold medal that's all right so parents are on board and new businesses are also springing up to build training facilities with trampolines and ramps and rails and all those other things but all this popularity can can also bring some problems which some of you wrote to us about one listener was worried about rock climbing or sport climbing which is also likely to have its olympic debut soon so the sport is getting more recognition but sportclimbing can be dangerous if amateurs get all excited and start heading outdoors and climbing real rocks without being properly trained that could lead to some real trouble you don't see me climbing up the walls d you know because i am here down on the ground right those of us who you do not have vertigo seem increasingly interested in this people also have thoughts about how being added to the olympics could change the culture of a sport here's ken swift the break dancer one more time and so just to make understand correctly you're saying when you feel a song or something it's personal it's creative maybe something that's.

"Hey, guys, we're about to get into my interview with the creative minds behind a film called Olympic dreams. And those people are Alexi Pappas, Nick Kroll and Jeremy teicher now Olympic dreams, you probably haven't heard of. But I am happy to evangelize for it. I saw a little while ago. And it premiered here it's off by south west down in Austin. And it is really like a small miracle movie. I'm sure it's going to get distribution soon. And you guys will be able to see it. But I thought that the story of the making of the movie was so cool that we would be able to share it with you. Now Alexi is a Olympic athlete. So she is actually out there. She ran in two thousand sixteen Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and she and her husband, Jeremy are filmmakers as well. Jeremy's a director and really accomplished filmmaker on every level because he is essentially on this film. Mm-hmm. Is his own crew. And here's what they did. They got in with the Olympic Committee who asked them to be artists in residence, and they went and made a romantic comedy in pian Chang during the Olympics. And it was really it's a really incredible accomplishment. Basic, the basic story set up is that Alexi plays a woman in Penelope who's competing as a cross country. Skier she competes early in the game. So she has a lot of free time afterwards. She's kind of feeling a little bit of an emptiness after competition, and she meets a volunteer dentist at the games. Played by Nick Kroll, and they kind of have this this worlwide end friendship slash romance throughout the the movie and every scene takes place in some part of the Olympic experience. Whether it's the opening ceremonies that dining hall at the Olympic village in the dorms in and around peon Chang going to the pennant behind the scenes of these ethnic events. I kind of have like a little bit. A frustration. Sometimes when I'm watching television because you can kind of see see the seems a little bit. You can see people they're shooting on sound stages. They're shooting in a lot of interiors because that's easy to control you DC to light you can kind of get things in and out. But sometimes it doesn't feel of the world. This movie is kind of remarkable because it feels both very of the world, you get to see all these incredible locations, and you know, they're running around in parking lots and in like food courts, and then they're like at a karaoke bar or a nightclub. But then it also is a world basically like ninety nine point nine nine nine nine percent of us will never get a chance to see. We will not be Olympic athletes. We don't know what it's like to train all your life to do something. So incredible..

That's Canada's Olympic athlete development program out of curiosity right now. Are you still in Calgary? I flew home this morning. I left a crooked on I just got back to our go. What was it like in Calgary yesterday? Can you walk me through how plebiscite day went? It was a day of you know, hive and lows. I mean, I think the people that have been working on the bid for the last, you know, whatever long been on a months and months and months where I think full of optimism, I think there was a feeling Calgarians. We're going to write to do Kagan. But I think people felt that the bait was between two relatively small vocal groups and that everyone else had been watching and they were about to step in and settle everything and given Calgary's relationship with the Olympics their track record with the Olympics. They're still a sort of an Olympic superpower when it comes to developing the best athletes in our country. Everybody is taught that you know, there's a limit connection to almost every family in Calgary. But the problem was that, you know, it just seemed that at the back of all of you know, there was there was some feeling amongst the public which sort of came out in the vote. People were confused. They didn't. It had that there was a coherent vision behind the bid, and they just felt nervous about it. And they walked away from it. And you know, I think people shocked at the end and pretty disappointed. I was a bit surprised. I thought you know, Calgarians wouldn't fact bet on themselves. They before it back. I you know, I made a comment this morning had Calgary voted. Yes. They would have been in the pole position to win against Weeden Italy because they would have had a financial plan that's been approved by government. They have government support. And they have a plebiscite of people supporting the games. And so, you know, that's a loss thing I found out which I didn't know which is not really an answer to your question was interesting. The only city ever the win a plebiscite both of the Olympics. Go onto stage the games Hoover. It's interesting though that Calgary unlike Vancouver, obviously didn't have that same vision of the game. Teams Calgary now joins the growing list of cities internationally that are saying no we can't be bothered to host the Olympic Games for a variety of different reasons. You know, we can look at Calgary on a micro level. But if we check it out on a macro level is it just another example of cities who are skeptical of hosting the games of this growing. Skepticism surrounding the I O C of perhaps a larger trend that more and more cities will continue to say no to the Olympic Games, you know, as much as I'm a huge fan. You know, I have to say that losing Calgary's kind of a big deal. And you know, it's not like losing a brand new city. It's not like losing a city that doesn't have stuck in a row or too strong. And doesn't have a truck Calgary's. God, there's a real strident kind of culture in Calgary. They get stuff done there and moving them will be noticed. And I think the IOT probably feel this is quite a big loss. And unfortunately, so she kind of got in the way of everybody's thinking..

"Yes. So the game is over for these Olympic Games on people spoken people in big numbers and the people who spoke in clearly. And this is very clear direction for where we go from here. To ask what kind of city. Do we wanna live? It's not a city that we want. I think this rejection of the what killed it was. It's the International Olympic Committee, and our feelings toward them was that our feelings toward our city council or to our provincial. I mean, a lot of nails in this coffin. But you know, when you look at the product which was the Olympics. I think the Olympic brand is tarnished and the is tarnished and all of that corruption all of those doping scandals these this analogy for it was like inviting the mafia in tier leaving. Of course, a couple of Canadian cities have already hosted the games, though, Vancouver had them in twenty ten Calgary hosted once before in nineteen eighty as and before that was Montreal in nineteen seventy six so why are so many cities now growing weary of hosting? What is long been considered the most premier sporting events in the world. To start. I wanted to talk to someone who could tell me exactly why Calgarians decided to pass on making Olympic bid. This is robbery enrich host of afternoons on seven seventy QR. Global News Radio. Rob how long have you been living in Calgary for well?.

"A couple years ago. Toronto's mayor made it clear Canada's largest city would not be putting in a bid to host the twenty twenty four Olympic Games. Okay. We'll good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for your patience. And thank you for being here this morning. I want to start by making one thing. Perfectly clear. Toronto can be an Olympic city and Toronto already is a world class city. And I believe that one day Toronto will the great venue for Olympic Games. But not in twenty four again. Let me be clear I am not saying no to the Olympics. I am saying not this time. They joined the growing list of international cities who won by one have turned down the chance to host the games. New York City and Philadelphia or out of the running to host the two thousand twenty four Olympic Games by choice. Meanwhile, the list of cities they want to host the two thousand twenty two wondering games is plummeting money appears to be more important than pry behind me is the site of the London summer Olympics in two thousand twelve wildly popular. But the winter games have always been a different story smaller less lucrative, but he'll marry expensive to stage. That's why there's a certain chill in the air. Recently among bidders rooms man has begun full steps to her city's bid to host the twenty two thousand four summer Olympic Games. Most former host cities have spent well over their initial cost projections and spent several years paying the Bill the Montreal games, for example, overran their initial customization and budget by staggering seven hundred ninety six percent Rome joins Boston and Hamburg in withdrawing its bid to host the twenty twenty four games. Unlike the case in Rome, though it. Was Hamburg citizens and not the city's authorities who pulled the plug. You can add Oslo burn Denver and now Calgary Alberta to that list as well. On November thirteenth Calgary held a plebiscite people were asked to vote whether or not they thought that Calgary should host the twenty twenty six winter games. We'll Calgarians vote. Yes. Or no to hosting the twenty twenty six Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games. If the answer is yes, we will continue on with our bid with the International Olympic Committee making the final decision. A no vote. It would be up to city council to kill the bid three hundred and four thousand seven hundred seventy four Calgarians casting their ballot. One hundred seventy one thousand seven hundred fifty on the no side one hundred thirty two thousand eight hundred thirty two voting..
