Fresh "Olympics" from News, Traffic and Weather

"Informed The northwest's only 24 hour news station como news 1000 FM 97 7 The Beijing Winter Olympics begin in February but the U.S. will not send any government officials Rick mace is covering it for The Washington Post and spoke with como's Taylor van syce Rick what message is the U.S. trying to get across here Well I mean so it's a largely symbolic measure And for months now government officials have been shattering about what they should do in response to some of the human rights abuses they've seen in China and this is kind of the compromise They still want athletes to go They still want them to have a chance to compete Earn metals are in glory but they also want to send a message to China that we don't approve of everything that you're doing over there right now So it is largely symbolic and it does strike a blow If you're watching on TV you might not necessarily notice the diplomatic boycott but certainly the government leaders both in China and U.S. are filling it right now And how is China retaliating or at least responding to this diplomatic boycott Yeah really until the boycott was formally announced by The White House yesterday they kind of downplayed it and said it wasn't a big deal And then one was a boycott was announced We heard a little bit more from Chinese from China the government leaders there On one hand they're saying hey you know what we haven't actually formally invited you So you can't boycott this thing we haven't even invited you to But just the fact they are responding kind of lets you know that a nerve was struck The hosting Olympics is a big feather in the head It's a chance for any country to kind of put their best foot forward on the global stage for a country like the United States to send this kind of message Does it does seem like tensions were already a little bit freight and there certainly is just making matters a little bit more difficult I read something also that China was trying to say that the U.S. was mixing politics with athletics and it's not supposed to happen that way But we've also seen China mix human rights I don't know if abuses was the right term in this case but a questionable human rights policies with their own athletes right Yeah I mean in recent weeks we've all been hearing and talking about the tennis star Feng Shui who lodged a sexual assault allegation against a former government leader And then disappeared seemingly for three weeks before kind of resurfacing and circumstance that people still aren't sure about They are still have concerns about her safety So these are new issues with China They're not new issues with sports If you go back to the 2008 summer games there were people calling for a boycott for boycott of some sort then So these issues always arise with China It's hard to divorce sports completely from politics And certainly Olympic boycotts are unique either You go back to 1980 the Moscow games 1968 we saw American athletes protesting on the medal stand Even back to 1936 when Germany hosted the Summer Olympics there were people demanding boycotts then So as long as this world is politically divided in certain ways we're going to have these kind of discussions every four years when we have summer winter Rick max with us on common news Sports reporter for The Washington Post you can always find Rick's coverage online at Washington Post dot com Rick thank you That's como's Taylor van size An Oregon senator wants the U.S. to take a tougher stance when it comes to China and the upcoming Winter Olympics Kelly Blair reports The Biden administration just announced it plans to diplomatically boycott the Olympics in China in February Athletes will still compete but government leaders won't attend to support it But Oregon senator Ron wyden is calling for a corporate boycott of the sports event China has recently faced criticism for its treatment of professional tennis player Who disappeared last month after accusing a Chinese Communist Party leader of sexual assault We haven't even been able to get the specifics with respect to this Chinese tennis star So I am for sending the strongest possible message Wyden.

US Diplomats and 'VIPs' to Boycott 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics

"Government officials are going to boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, not because not a boycott that you think it is. It will just be a diplomatic boycott, which means that U.S. diplomats or VIPs are expected to boycott, but not the athletes. You talk about cutting the baby in half. You talk about splitting the baby. Oh, well, if you want to participate, go participate. We're not really going to do anything significant, but us VIPs, we won't be going. Great.

CNN's Jake Tapper Slams Major Corporations for Being 'Blinded' by Chinese Cash

"But Jake tapper mainly because of his concerns over paying Shui. Paying who is the tennis player? Am I getting that right? Accused China's former vice premier Jean galo of sexually assaulting her. And so then she disappeared, of course, because it's China. Tapper emphasized the world tennis association's attempt to protest China's brutality I'm reading from mediaite. I can't believe I'm reading from mediaite. It's kind of weird segment as this. Is far more strident than what the International Olympic Committee has done to prepare to host for the 2020 winter games. Tapper said, yes, the Olympics are supposed to be free without politics. But this is not about politics. The allegations against the Chinese government go far beyond his treatment of Shwe. That's the least of our concerns. But the real problem is that people that pay U.S. taxes and that are allegedly U.S. citizens, they have gotten unbelievably rich off of allowing China to rise to power. Many members at the top levels of the generation that came to power in the 70s and 80s, the septuagenarian generation, the Pelosi and Schumer's, they prioritized instant stimulus profits from Mainland China over the welfare of the nation. Here's CNN Jake tapper. I mean, he just unleashes on this. I'm sure he'll be reprimanded. Play cut 13 right now. That Simpsons episode in Hong Kong disappeared like Peng Shi. Disappeared, like citizen journalist Zhang Jian, whom the Chinese government has locked up for telling the truth about COVID-19. Disappeared like the consciences of the millionaires and billionaires in Hollywood and the NBA and the IOC and Wall Street are all so eager for Chinese cash. They are pretending none of this is happening. There is no amount of money that can buy enough soap to wash that blood off their hands. So, I'm going to give you the cynical interpretation that I'm going to give you the other interpretation. The cynical interpretation as Jake tapper doesn't believe that. And he found some sort of intern that isn't a Bolshevik at CNN and said, hey, I want the 9 p.m. slot for Fredo that was just fired. Can you just like take some of Tucker's monologues and then launder them through a CNN filter? And then let me say them because then I can get the 9 p.m. slot. That's the cynical interpretation is that Jake tapper found some intern that isn't a communist that CNN and wrote that monologue after that. I'll be honest, that was a copy paste of something that Tucker Carlson has been saying for the last three years.

How the Regime Will Use Identity Politics in Framing the Waukesha Attack

"What you saw last night with, what's his name again? Daryl Edward Brooks, the black supremacist terrorist was nothing more than another outgrowth, or production of The Rain and the regime of identity politics. So what happened last night? Well, according to CNN, this is their latest news report. CNN puts this, they say 5 people have died and more than 40 are injured after an SUV plowed through a holiday parade and walk a show Wisconsin oh, so the SUV was a driverless car. You know, the SUV did not drive through the holiday parade. A BLM incorporated leader drove through the holiday parade. This is an important thing to go through because Daryl Edwards Brooks who was a radical pro BLM anti police anti capitalist mass murdering terrorist. He was out on a $1000 bail. Now what sort of worldview must you have to believe that we should relax bail standards for pedophiles or for terrorists? Just because of the color of someone's skin. Will this all started with the kamba he? River collective statement in 1977. It was a statement that was issued by radical black lesbian feminists based in Boston. In the statement it says the following, quote, this focusing upon our oppression. Is embodied in the concept of identity politics. It was the first time we ever had any reference to the phrase. Identity politics. Now, these black, lesbian feminists, from Boston, issuing the combahee river collective statement, they were the first ones to talk about the interconnectedness and identified and denounce the multiple systems of oppression that exist in our country. Now, what's really important, though, is that we call it identity politics. But the black lesbian feminists that wrote this for the first time, they actually hit it perfectly. They said instead of focusing upon identity, our identity is actually rooted in our oppression. You see, through the lens of what we call identity politics or critical race theory or woke ism or diversity equity inclusion or anti racism teaching which your children might have to experience in grade school or in high school. Is it emphasis that the currency that you trade with? That the way you get wealthy in a world dominated by identity politics is by having points of oppression. We call this the oppression Olympics. But then it goes a step deeper. It goes a level deeper. That identity politics, privileges, and elevates, the identities of people that are then therefore oppressed. The basic moral framework of identity politics is not agency, it's not choices, it's not your capacity to deal with stress, though instead it puts an emphasis on whether or not you are a member of an oppressed identity politic

NY Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Backstory and Connection to the Former Yugoslavia

"First welcome back to our one on one end studio in discussion with New York's congresswoman Claudia teddy. For those who aren't familiar with your backstory. I didn't even know it until you came in today. You said you mentioned my book, and then you said you sold me on TV and you bought my book, which talks about my parents who escaped Hungary under communism and then mentions what was happening next door in Yugoslavia. Share with us who aren't familiar or who aren't from your district, your connection to the Balkans in the Eastern Europe. I'm not of Yugoslavia in descent or Balkan descent, but I did actually see you and I said, oh, look, you know, because one of my jobs when I worked at the former Yugoslav consulate, which is obviously gone because of the war. We're still look for people in the Balkans, people in the region, and I just, you know, anyone with a sort of the accident, even though Hungarian is not similar to several creations to different route language, I just said, oh, who's this guy? Oh, he's talking about hungry. Interesting because of all that was happening and Yugoslavia being so unique, technically not behind the iron curtain. Tito was able to keep him out of the common form. So I went to Yugoslavia as a student in 1981, 40 years ago, just for a study group and ended up falling in love with the place to just so diverse and interesting and continued to stay there. Work for the consulate worked on the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. Learn the language, you know, just continue to go back and then obviously through the war, it was a tough time for me. I had friends from every part of the country, the former years of everywhere. Because we all worked in the consulate together, and so that's been my connection and just living in a country that was communist and then seeing the transformation since the war and them trying to emerge as a market economy, and reading your book where you hear about you're talking about some of the things that happened and how a lot of Hungarians were trying to cross through Yugoslavia and get to freedom and how Tito basically turned them in. And they read the benevolent dictator who was Marshall, Joseph pizza, right? Right, yeah, so called benevolent dictator, and that's where I, you know, I think we're on this moment in American history where people should learn that when they say we have communism we've never just done it quite right, and we had a benevolent dictator in Tito, not a benevolent dictator. Tito had a dissident camp where people were tortured and killed on a barren island in the Adriatic Sea. So it's all these communists. And he played and he played the nationalities. Right. Slovenes vice the Croatians, the Croatians versus the Serbs. Yeah, and technically he was Croatian, but first and foremost he was a communist. Right. He was able to bridge the gap and keep an allied relationship with the Americans and with kind of keeping everyone at bay to maintain this sort of artificial union of these countries and Yugoslavia, which wants Tito died. You know, they devolved into war within about ten

Gordon Chang Discusses China War Games With US Targets in Secret Desert Site

"With us now is the foremost expert on China. He's terrific. He is the author of the great U.S. China tech war. And it is Gordon Chang and Gordon are you with us now? I am Charlie and thank you so much. You bet you do a wonderful job and talk about our enemy, China, and you have been on the cutting edge of this for quite some time. So let's talk about this breaking news here. China war games with the United States targets in secret desert site. What is going on with the Chinese Communist Party militarily right now? It seems like they're ramping up and I'm not really sure what we're doing domestically militarily. That's a separate issue. So give us the insight, give us the breaking news of what's happening from the Chinese Communist Party militarily. The breaking news is that satellite imagery has seen an aircraft carrier and a destroyer a replica in China's Xinjiang in the northwest part of the country, used for target practice. This has occurred before where China has built replica replicas of U.S. Navy ships. And so to a certain extent, this is ground log day, but the American people are starting to pay attention and that is what is the news. And the broader context, Charlie, is that China's involved in the perhaps the world's fastest military buildup certainly the fastest since the Third Reich, and we know from history that when militant regimes build up their militaries like this, they always use them in acts of aggression. That's definitely true. Do you anticipate China making a move towards Taiwan in the coming months, it sure seems that that's what some of the rumblings and intelligence is showing. It could be coming months. It could be after the Olympics, which start in February of next year, or it could be India could be Japan could be any other country that borders China because we know that China believes that it should be much larger than it is today. And in fact, Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been hinting that he should be ruling the world. Chinese officials since 2018 have been saying that the moon and Mars should be considered sovereign Chinese territory. This is the most ambitious human history.

I don't care what was his name thing point and that's the thing that i think needs to be acknowledged anything in some way be does understands the nation really well like he knows exactly who the people who live here are and what they want what they don't wanna and so. I think like doing some way he. He's saying like oh. Come not bennett. I'm not gonna wait a day to graduate olympian athlete. I'm gonna go on about because that's that's remind values standards educated guy story. He's the guy who brags look at seal. I have within three years ago fan but he understands the national history of our people. And so i guess i guess what turns into a shouting match. As often doesn't politics is so unproductive yeah and there is a productive conversation to be had for sure. Oh one hundred percent. I think it's critical and it goes into the larger question of sort of what who are we internally and then who who we want to be extradited to the world sort of what are we becoming and how how should that. Look and look the bottling. This is so interesting because we're at this crazy moment. In history share the olympics are back because the western world had renaissance and the greek culture reasserted itself over the christian culture so now modern western culture is this mix and the whole world is now competing in this christian. Greek mix that recall the western world and because the jews are having our renaissance and delta state. We are now participating in these events. It's it's you everything about this moment. History just knocks you for sure but the one thing i want to mention it. Specifies that we're not we're participating not as not as hidden jews hidden israelis loud and proud. And that's i think that's important to make that distinguish distinct distinguish between is just like that on the stage. What what are we showing the world. And that's that's the difference. In my opinion we always talk. About how complicated. Things aren't this podcast. We're always talking about with simple truth and that's true keep. It is sick of the word. But the truth is when when when when they play tic in an israeli your heartbeat. You're just proud so although it is complicated and this episode was about the complications of the olympics. It's okay sometimes. I feel that patriotic pry. Yeah of hearing a tickle playing on an international stage. We waited long enough for. Oh yeah all right..

"This year. i thought the commentary was really helpful. And it did actually teach me a wad about the sport. The commentators would say things like that was an old trick. That's a classic trick that older. Bmx writers use and has fallen out of favor. Because it's like this complicated to do and really explaining the amount of effort that it takes for a one minute run and how much energy that that takes how impressive these tricks are and watching it. I feel like i started being able to pick out. Oh they did that trick really well. So they're going to get a good score. I loved watching all the women compete. You should look up charlotte worthington's gold medal run because it's definitely worth a watch. I was like jumping up and down. And i hardly ever do that and i really appreciated. How the announcers managed to talk about. Competitors ages without sounding like woah baby is competing against an old hag like some other sports commentators tend to do curiel ducky is a dusty old bag of twenty four. How could a twenty nine year old compete against a sixteen year old. It's it's just like. I wish that there was a way to talk about ages without being like. Wow twenty nine. What are they doing. At the olympics the gymnastics team. I would say is one of the broadcast teams. That does it pretty decent job. And that's probably in part because gymnastics is still popular and probably the highest rated event at the summer olympics. Every time i kind of wish everyone would follow their lead a little bit more. They'll explain it bill every once in a while they don't want to interrupt the actual routine itself they might go You know in the mill lane and they'll be like okay so you know here's why this was an issue they'll tell you why they'll also pause and sometimes let you watch it without the constant commentary. Yeah i appreciate that. Also in the sense that i have learned how to look up what i need to know. I've watched a bunch of fencing and first of all when they say it's going to be a team fencing event. I want the whole team. Run at the whole other team. And everybody to start laying fencing. That's my vision. I want an action movie man. Anyway when i was watching the fencing there are a bunch of different fencing events. They all basically the same to me. Because i'm ignorant fencing. Judo i can look it up and be like okay. Basically get how this goes with fencing. I looked it up. And i was like i'm never going to be. They were saying you know. Then there's the advance and the when the attacks stops the right of way. Changes and i was like mom. Never never going to be able to catch up with this at all so i just watched some and i was like they both eat very graceful to me but i do encourage everybody to check out some checkups event. He'd never watched before if you have access to them because it is sort of cool. I wanna throw at one more programming note. Which is we've mentioned a couple times the paralympics. the paralympics don't begin until august twenty fourth. They run until september fifth there also in tokyo but they don't start until a couple of weeks after the olympics are over and it's very easy to think when these things are over like well. That was the olympics. There's a whole nother olympics happening. The motto of the paralympics is and i quote united by emotion. I am so they're i am also planning to make some room in my schedule for the paralympics because by the same token i've found it so much fun to watch a little bit of archery and badminton. And all that stuff each volleyball prancing horse i love prancing horses dance to music in dressage. I'm just saying. And i think by the same token i'm excited to try some Some paralympics It is safe to say we have not and could not cover everything. I really want to hear what all of you are.

"It is amazing. And you know i so agree with what daisy said about kind of the good place comparison and how you sort of have that feeling of like there's no ethical consumption under capitalism and all that kind of way of looking at it where whatever individual decision that you make your still contributing to a system that is incredibly troubled and i think to me one of the things that i really recommend to people who want to try to get kind of a twenty thousand foot view of that there's an. Hbo documentary called the weight of gold which is specifically about the mental health challenges of olympians particularly former olympians. But it also gets heavily into how small those training stipends are. How many of these athletes are broke. How many of these athletes have essentially no financial benefit and in fact incur incredible debt participating in the olympics. They feel these enormous pressures. I will give you a content warning for issues involving suicide and other mental health things in that documentary but at the same time. It is a good view. Of how much pressure there is. You know people have been so bothered by sort of the splintering of olympic coverage and it can be so difficult to figure out how to navigate the streaming options and they change it every time and at least it's not the triple cast anymore. But what i've been using is the nbc sports app on my apple tv. And when you use that you can watch a lot of things live but you don't get. Us commentators on a lot of you'll get australian commentators. You'll get british commentators. Basically anybody who is english speaking watching taekwondo match that was called by a scottish commentator. I had never heard before is like one of the things. I really love about watching it this way. You cannot avoid participating in the machinery of it but it has helped me not participate in the most nationalist parts of the machinery of it because those commentators people in other places do not think of the olympics as the united states and everybody else the way that they will tell you the same amount.

"I think watching the games themselves as really hard because on the one hand. I love watching the olympics. They're thrilling. I love watching gymnasts because i can't even do a cartwheel to save my own life. I love watching track and field events. Because i can't run and won't ever clear a track hurdle and also you know it's just really exciting to see athletes like filipino weightlifter. Heidel india's who won the philippines first olympic gold as a pin oi. My heart is bursting with pride. And i have to shout that out that being said i'm still thinking about the larger context of what is happening. Not just in the host country but in the host city aside from how surreal it is to see how empty the stands are and to hear how empty everything is. I can't help but think about how so few people around the world are still unvaccinated. How cove it is such a big presence in the world still how the olympics seemed to be kind of trying to smooth over that fact and the castle paul for me personally to think about not just the athletes and the coaches that were putting at risk but the whole huge infrastructure of the olympic games. Themselves like all the volunteers and people who are cleaning olympic village. I'm just trying to support the athletes like daisy said while also in the back of my head still worrying about everything that's happening. Yeah and you know to me. The most worrying and kind of significant statistic was the information that was coming out in the weeks leading up to the olympics which said the great majority of people who actually live in tokyo did not want them to go forward and in fact they have had increasing obviously increasing cases in tokyo. During this time and very difficult. I think to overlook the idea that you know. Whatever anybody else thinks it's ultimately the host country and city that is going to see the greatest effects from suddenly bringing a bunch of people regardless of the fact that they don't have spectators like regular spectators..

I gotta be that lady that like sits and watches the news in the morning while she drinks. Call part of who. I am now Better order. I feel like that's the stuff you always hear about my like. My dad will be on vacation like yeah. I was in his hotel room and there was no damn tv until the last day. I figured out the painting on the wall was all time play music. No speakers turns out there worst speakers the whole damn time it was. The art is in the land lamps that have speaker base. Yeah oh yeah but from have a couple of light bulbs that are also speakers that you can put in your can lights. Oh well okay. Yeah cool yeah. I'm so far behind. I don't have anything smart in the home religious to everything that i have is one thing. I don't have one thing that does two things plays music. I don't have everything. I have one. I like things that serve. I do have a lamp that you can plug your charges into. I like that a lot. That i love anything that plugs into the wall.

I want to run a joke by you guys. There's an olympic themed. Joe okay. i'm gonna try it on the big show tomorrow own. Try with you guys i. I've been watching the olympics. And i just don't think the swimming as exciting without without michael phelps. The olympics phelps it makes no sense. It's like watching the grateful dead without without jerry garcia. You know what i'm saying. Yeah it's like. I like to watch something that you know. They're the best at what they do and also they're probably high to wording a little bit. Yes yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah like the sentiment. I like you did well. Yeah yeah yeah it's pretty cool but In in working in can we critique go ahead okay in working in threes. You need one more like Like token tokar right like. I think there's one more that you need Well maybe for on stage reference. That you could do. The most recent one would be car. Richardson who's not racing this year. Because she was could be one because she's also the best at what she does and probably. Hi yes so maybe that could work also like talking about things that are funny is not funny track. That does jokes. So i'm like. I love this mckinnon. Snoop dogg is what i. Here's by a joke. And i'm really. I'm not crapping on it intentionally. I just don't him being Michael phelps being hide to me isn't really a thing anymore sure sure. And here's the reason he's been on the broadcast and awesome on broadcast. And i see him in a different light. He's real bubbling. All in the high thing just kind of that was ten years ago. I feel like it was ten years ago when people did it to kind of like Out him in a tmz released the very shameful. They made it be in the back of my head. I was just like oh. I like this guy more now. He's now he's likable. He has crutches. So i think it depends on how old you are when the information came out how you remember that make after. He competed and he was completed. Or is it in between the second that was it was that early. Yeah i was between. It was before london. i believe which was twenty twelve. so is it so controversial. Because he did it or was it was illegal and he was an athlete. How's it was illegal and he'd already one. It was illegal everywhere. Yeah well hoping probably right the joke that everyone's making about shaquille richardson to it's like. I've never smoked weed been faster. Let whatever she needs some. Yeah yeah it has never sped me up if someone was like taking math or doing coke and going faster. Maybe that could be an issue. That's true talk faster even prescription because of an advantage own such interesting question. If you have a really bad sinus infection you might get prescribed Prednisone sustained of up. Yeah a little bit. Well that's another weird thing is like all these drugs that have weird side effects. I heard the other day. That accutane was invented as a form of chemotherapy. And it's like it's strong enough to kill cancer and also we can get rid of pimples. Didn't make sure no smaller. It doesn't exactly john. People invented these things. What is going on it's weird. It's like why my Seizure medicine also helps to get rid of it doesn't help it also helps new disorders which i have a little bit of mood disorder. So it's got to welcome you know. Bring bring over that side effects getting your buddy water's warm talking about a mood disorder. Ten minutes at well.

Olympics is set up for success where golf itself doesn't have much history in the olympics. Obviously but the olympics has the most history. So if you just build your golf tradition. Your golf olympic tradition on top of that. Then you could really be cooking. We talk about the fedex cup lot when that's going on like they just decided to just throw dollars at it and we're like this is why this is important the fedex cup doesn't have a built in history. The olympics does where golf now being added to the olympics. Hundred years from now people could associate golf with the olympics. And it's as big a deal as everything else. So what happens if they bring the olympics back which. I'm sure they just don't like georgia or something right. Like atlanta athens. And they've played the golf at fucking augusta national like imagine like the pageantry of that and how cool that'd be if they added or that's what they need. They need to add something where it's like. It's really cool to plan like everyone would want to do that. Aside from all the history that we're talking about they have to add a recurring thing where it's like the best golf course and and like so. I don't know. I'm just trying to think of how you can make it yet. Needs some pop. It just needs a. I completely agree as people that follow this game all the time. Yeah we think it needs pop then. Everybody thinks think let's say call more cowan's the gold medal this year. I think he then talks about it a lot..

"Worth what they're metal like symbolizes and to see a silver medal. The olympics as failure can mess a lot of people up in for me. I had a very great community of people around me to remind me that no that is an honor of lifetime but that can weigh in a lot of people. Do you have any regrets from your olympic experience. I do not. I think he make a lot of mistakes. I think you go through a lot of different things in life. But i don't believe in regrets because i think they shape who you are as a person as far as the olympics. If i were to joke around with one. I wish i would have taken more pictures and save those memories. I was so focused on the competition. That i tried to blur everything out. And it's hard for me to remember. I'm just going to publicly say this. I wasn't even no. But i keep me up at night. So sean when we first started dating. This is the first year of our dating. I needed a laptop for school so she was generous enough to lend me. Her laptop turns out that that was a laptop. She had all her olympic pictures on. The cloud didn't exist back then.

"Couple things fifty for fifty percents off your first order from care of today we will also linked up down below unless get back to it back to olympic specific questions when you were there. What were the media. Obligations like media obligations. We really didn't have any media obligation until we are done competing after you're done competing you kind of go through the circuit so you go through the nbc interviews. You talked about kostas. You do like the international outlets everything and usually do that within your arena. So whatever sport you're competing and as soon as you're done competing you'll go through almost like a chorale. it's like a maze of every single outlet. That has come to the olympics. In you'll just do like step by step by step interviews until you get through them. I technically don't think you're obligated to do any of them. But i do think for the athletes. It's such a huge moment where they're wanting to share their story and their triumphant tribulations and just kind of everything. They went through to get there. So it's it's a pretty big honor for an athlete to do one of anyone who's done the marshawn lynch so i don't fine. I wonder if they do have A fine schedule in place for something like that. They nfl does. I don't think so for the olympics. That what is a typical day in the life. Look like for an athlete at the olympics olympics i. It's very different. Based off of sport based off of country. Everything is kind of determined by team for us what it looked like in for us. It was a little bit different because we were minors living in the olympic village. So were you mining gold. Silver the worst joke. Yes because we were underage andro and not mining gold We were very restricted from our coaches. Just for safety measures so we pretty much stayed as a team and we would stay in our room during downtime. We'll go to practice. We go to the cafeteria with our chaperones and with our coaches. We'll go to the training hall where we get like physical therapy done or go in the hot tub or the ice or whatever and then they do have recreational activities at the olympic village. So they have like a barber shop or they have a game zone or they have like walking paths. They truly like its own little community. We would go do that every once in a while but again under the supervision of adults. It's interesting yet. It does vary by sport. We talked about this in last year video about the olympics and how the pandemic affected it but the structure of each sport federation and the olympics. Yes can can hint change from sports so the olympics work you have the international olympic committee the and then each country has their respective olympic committee. So for the united states. Usoc usoc kind of like manages for my understanding. The sport committee so for gymnastics. You have usa gymnastics. But then usa gymnastics is under the international gymnastics federation which is called the i and every sport has their own variation of that. So depending on the strictness or vibe of the coaches or the you know the organizers really proud of you for all. I don't if i explained that. Well or not but i gave it my best shot. Here's the pins. It's confusing the nfl. You've got frigging thirty two teams and one organizer. So here's the pyramid and you. You said it perfectly you just a little out of order so you have the international olympic committee. They're the bigwigs there. The top of the top under them. You have the federations of every sport so like the top of the top of international sports under them. You have the country's olympic committees so the chinese olympic committee. The russian olympic committee the uso mckinney and under them. You have the organizations for every country for every sport. Usa g usa cycling track and field and each at each level. They can make their own rules. Yes all right. We're gonna skip deliver olympic village question because people like this episode. We'll do a whole one on that But we're curious one listener asked if you get paid for your medals or do you have to pay for your medal. Which is it both technically interesting. So whether you are which can whether you are saving your eligibility for the ncwa. Which congratulations is no longer an issue in not accepting money at the olympics. It's the one place where you can safely accept money prize money of any kind in not matthew ability But at the olympics gold. Silver and bronze medals come with prize money from the international olympic committee. So yes you get paid for the medals but then that actually counts as income so you pay taxes on it well and you had an olympic ring that you had to pay for to yes. There are olympic rings that are issued by every country and for us. We had to pay them getting to the country of hosting the olympics. This year in tokyo japan. Who pays for the travel so a lot of this is specified in differentiated by federations but for the united states the us olympic committee in each individual federation will pay for your travel so usa gymnastics. Inyo see paid for us. What's your favorite olympic sport to watch. Then i would say gymnastics track and field swimming diving and that order. And how many olympics have you attended. Yes whoa competed in one. I've competed in two thousand eight. But i've attended two thousand eight two thousand ten two thousand twelve two thousand fourteen two thousand sixteen. That's it's pretty good. I think i've been one. I've been atlanta. Let's how many olympics. You've been to listening you listening What is your favorite will. Wrap it up here with a couple of questions and If people do like this episode olympics what we can do non. There's so many topics that we could cover that. We need like categorize it.

"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

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