FINA Votes to Restrict Transgender Women From Competitions

"Some common sense at last, the world's governing body and swimming. It's called Athena. Has effectively banned transgender women from competing in women's events. The female members voted 71% in favor of a policy, basically it only permits swimmers who have transitioned before the age of 12 to compete in women's events. So the way this worked is that, well, the controversy was kind of driven by Leah Thomas, the University of Pennsylvania swimmer, biological male, a trans, who entered the transgender NCAA championship. Basically destroyed the competition, and people are going to say, wait a minute. So fina created a working group. This is an international body, by the way, a working group, and the working group was made up of medical experts, legal experts, sports figures to review all this. And they decided, you know what? We can't have it. And so at the Olympics and an international events, it's very simple. They use the key kind of marker of what they call Tanner stage two or before age 12. Whichever is later. So if you haven't transitioned by then, you can't do it. And now obviously they don't care the other way if you're a female to male transgender athlete. In other words, if you are transgender male, you are able to compete, but the idea is that if you are a biological man, lose transition to female, then you then you have

Two Cis-Men Discuss the Gender Agenda

"Obviously we have a women's summit here. We could define what a woman is. But the problem also met is in recent years, especially the kind of nastiness that is now embedded in this discussion and this debate, it's almost become a value debate that you're an awful person if you do not accept that gender is nothing more than a social construct. And it almost, in some ways, and especially in recent months, I'd say in the last 6 months, it's almost become more intense than the racial debate where this is so important. Why is it that it gets such a preference? I know you mentioned the oppression Olympics and kind of the competition of whoever can be the most depressed person, which changed on a day to today basis. But they see it seems like they see an opportunity here. What do they think that's going to get them? I think the viciousness comes from a couple of things. First of all, how important this agenda is to them. It's not just about gender. And even the word gender has been expanded to include anything. There are people now if you look on TikTok, people say, well, my gender is the latest one. I'm cake gender. That's a thing now. I could be the gender of cake. Right. Why we talk to someone whose gender was in the film. We talked to someone identifies as a wolf. So the term gender has expanded because it's not just about it's not just about gender.

"John, bob, I'm glad to have you with us today on dot com's podcast. It's not going to be with you. Have you called my friend? I guess that's what happens when you share your waffle House menu selections. You really become tight with somebody. Well, you know, when we get to be friends, you know, when I tell you what to order at waffle House, then we've got it down there. Hey, as we get started, one of the things I love to do in this podcast and when I do especially people politicians, I do media people is everybody knows us and I found this to be true and I think you probably have as well. If they see us in the airport or they see us have they know us from this right here, they know it from the camera if you would. They don't know the background. So span just a few minutes telling us, you know, where are you from? How you got here and just give us a good taste of who you are. Well, I'm from Marietta, Georgia originally. I was born actually my parents live in kennesaw when I was born. And we moved to Tampa pretty quickly thereafter and live there for 8 years, but moved back to Marietta when I was 8 years old. And from 8 years on all the way through my 5 years at the university of Georgia and there after my first job in television was in Augusta, Georgia was my home. I love it. I love the braise. I love the dogs. Having the Olympics there was fantastic as well. And it was just, you know, I think I lived there in a perfect time when the state to me, we learned about a three pillars, right? Wisdom justice and moderation. And all three things were readily available to me. Growing up in Marietta, I went to Davis elementary middle school and Lassiter high school for those folks to know. But it was such a great community because people were moving to Atlanta from all over the place. My parents were actually from the northeast, my dad settled in Atlanta in the 70s with my mom when we moved back there, but at that time in the late 80s, early 90s Atlanta was such a boom town and we had people from all over the place. And it was just such a great melting pot of different Americans and all kinds of folks, different races and religions. And I really felt like I had a wonderful public school experience and when it came time for college, the only thing I knew is that I wanted to go to an SEC football school. My dad went to graduate school at the university of Florida, and he took me to a game when I was four years old. It was a Florida Miami game. And it was one of my earliest memories, and I just love the whole thing. And then, you know, my sister went to auburn, and I was spent some time with her at all. My older sister, and I was like, this place is great. All these people are so nice on the planes. And I was like, it's a little boring though. And then finally, I didn't think I was gonna get into Georgia but I did get in and I went there and I had a bunch of buddies of mine who are you older than me in high school that went there and I spent some time with them and the moment I walked on campus I knew I was

Gordon Change Connects the Dots Between China and Russia

"What does China have to do with Russia? Well, one of the theories that we floated on this show is that Russia feels empowered and emboldened to do aggressive, action, such as invading Ukraine. When they have China in their back pocket, is the Russia China alliance, something as strong as now we're seeing a new super alliance of dictators that want to go against the west. Someone who knows China, better than anybody else, knows the CCP and the geopolitics surrounding it is my friend Gordon Chang, who's just terrific. Gordon, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you so much, Charlie. So Gordon, walk us through. What is the Russia China relationship? Why is China not denounced the invasion of Ukraine? And connect the dots for us. Well, first of all, Charlie, not only has Beijing refused to denounce the invasion of Ukraine, it actually refuses to call it an invasion, which shows you how close China and Russia are. When Vladimir Putin went to Beijing for the opening ceremony at the Olympics, February 4, they had that meeting Putin and Xi Jinping. What happened is they issued that very long communicate that announced the no limits partnership. But even more important, they announced a $117.5 billion in new oil and gas deals. And just a few days ago, Charlie, Russia announced the sale of a 100 million metric tons of coal to China. This means Beijing is actually financing Putin's invasion of Ukraine. And we see China supporting Russia in other ways. This is, as you say, a super partnership of really bad actors. This is perhaps the end of the Cold War post Cold War period. This really looks like beginning of a general period of conflict.

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

Charlie May Not Love the Olympics, But He Does Love Justice

"They're occurring? I really haven't watched much of the Olympics, but I do love justice. I have to say. And I don't like delighting in people's failure, but I don't like cheaters at all. You should not like cheaters and I do not like people who try to game the system for their own personal gain while other people are not given that same sort of advantage. So you've probably heard the story it was covered extensively of this woman, young girl actually, 15 year old camellia vala Ava. She fell twice during her free skate. Now she's a cheater, probably because the adults around her quite honestly. I feel sorry for her. She's been used to use by the Russian government as some sort of propaganda tool for skating. And the adults around here should know better and they shouldn't have been giving her these substances so she tested, let's say positive for a banned substance. So, oh, I see. Okay, the drugs allowed her to have more oxygen into her heart. That's really not necessary, I guess it is without the drug she falls down, I guess. I don't understand why you would be doping a 15 year old. And she's 15 years old and she's been used as a prop of the Russian government to try to propagandize the world towards what I don't know that the Russians are the best. No one actually believes that and obviously. I would expect this out of the Chinese Communist Party and I guess we should also expect it out of the Russian equivalent of that. And so she was allowed to compete because the Olympic Committee was saying that if she didn't compete that she wouldn't be too traumatizing for her to pull out from the Olympics, but that if she won the gold that there wouldn't be a there wouldn't be an Olympic ceremony and all this, but she just collapsed. She did terrible for her own standards. And I got to give NBC credit. I don't give NBC credit for a lot. There are Chinese owned and operated. They do deserve credit for how they handled it. I have to say they were they were good. And Johnny weir, who's tough to listen to at times overly dramatic and a lot of these things. I haven't listened to that in years. Nothing against him personally. He said something. They said, nope, that's not going to get it. They'll be gold silver and bronze in the women's event in Beijing and so that means that he left the Johnny weir system thank God. And

"To talk about the midterms. And we don't want to be complacent about the midterms. And of course, the Democrats have shown that they know how to manage the election better than we do. We might be better at campaigning. They're better at election management. And I think you know what I'm talking about. Nevertheless, this is not a time by the way to sit home and to wallow and despair, the opposite is true. This tremendous opportunity, and it's time to well, politically speaking, metaphorically speaking, stick a fork in Biden. Yes, right in the buttocks. And I think if we do this effectively, he's not even going to be able to go come on man. He's going to be like, so the issues are lining up on our side. So I'm going to talk about what are the little sharp ends of that of that fork. Well, the first one is Law & Order, safety. The Democrats came up with defund the police, they're trying to run away from it. We never stood to fund the police. Well, I guess you did. It wasn't just the squad. It wasn't just AOC and Ilhan Omar. The mainstream of the Democratic Party embraced the slogan, many police departments were defunded if not demoralized. That is issue number one. I think it's a powerful issue for Republicans in the midterm number two. China. Now, foreign policy is not often a big issue, but kind of selling your soul to China is. And I think what we have with the bidens is being compromised by China, making deals with China that result in transfers of assets under the table to the Biden family. I think that's a powerful issue, and then that is then reinforced by the fact that Biden's taken a very soft view toward China. Notice he was rattling the war drums about Russia, but a far more dangerous power today China is being is really being coddled. The Olympics are kind of a good example. The United States has a symbolic diplomatic boycott, but no all our athletes are there at the Olympics. So this was a kind of ineffective sanction if you can even call it 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.

"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.

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..

Jason offsets and i and willie griswald you guys watching the olympics right. Now i've been watching Have you seen canoe slalom. Like i don't know if that's the right one where it's called her in like a rapid basically like They have to go to like like little. Booties on one corner. And then on the other corner and then go to the other corner and then go through. It's insane brother task it does. It looks like it looks like it. Looks like it would be a challenge on a nickelodeon kid's show jacqueline. It is weird. Are you guys watching anything right now. The beach volleyball nothing swimming and track and field opens up soon. Some curious to see that. So i bought a new tv in In for streaming only watch the olympics in my kitchen. And you haven't used it. I figured onset enough yet. But i'll get there. It'll it'll happen it'll happen. It's one of those. Tv's that looks like a picture when you're not using it. Oh right. I just saw a review of a. It looks like one of these little. Yes sound things here for i. Ki- makes a sonos speaker that looks like walmart but it's actually speaker similar. Yeah you could put it next year. Tv i watch something here. No no no. It's all hidden. So i turned forty and i was like. Oh well now. 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. If it has a little like usb charger on the side everything in the whole record player that also plays cd's in cassettes yearning radio genre boxing I dunno walmart. That's dvr vcr. There that makes sense. I'm talking about popcorn player with bluetooth and then it turns into a projector. That actually would be sick. That would be cool. That would be awesome real quick. 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. I mean we talked a little bit of olympics is say let's just get into our first bit. We're gonna kick it off with a little bit of olympic. I'm sorry it's an olympic moment in history.

"I just talked about history with the open championship and the masters what has more history than the olympics. Like nothing so. I guess there's two sides to it as the players coolest thing ever viewer they gotta get better at like making it a little bit more important. Yeah i agree with that. It is no when you talk about that history of like the actual olympics. And i know. You're big on the ancient greeks. I can tell so. That's really that really hits. I think you made a good point. That made me goof fuck. They were doing man like humans against humans. Who's the best human like. that's how they like. Did it like sport who could throw this rock as far as possible. That is fucking just like sport and like alan mark our could be on the same level as them like because the olympic committee has granted him. A gold medal at the olympics were golfing. 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..

"The good people and they're you know like reading about leaky for the american woman who won gold and fencing. Who's in medical school. And has only been training two days a week with her husband and their basement and they built a fencing pissed in their in their basement and seeing her joy in winning this and then like having the light kind of pleasure of going back and seeing something and then like reading about the person and like reading about what they've gone through The experience of like how. I consumed her victory and looking at the highlights and reading about. It is absolutely the same as i would've consumed it and any other olympics and that i think is a thing. That's maybe under discussed. Is that an and especially in a a tape delay olympics. When we're here in the us is how a lot of the olympics are actually consumed. In retrospect when you like know what happened and then you want to go back and like look more deeply into a person or into a sport or into you know even going back and watching the event later and that just that feels very similar to me but this olympics has an any other olympics. That's human nature right. I mean that's our ability to say this is fun despite the organization. I mean it comes back to that. Same you know same conundrum that we face watching the nfl if you're concerned about brain injury It's all part of the same of debate. And yeah i mean like my one of my favorite moments so far was the tunisian. Swimmer augmented huff. Now who was the. The slowest time made it into the finals.

"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.

"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.

"olympics " Discussed on Why It Matters

"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

"olympics " Discussed on Why It Matters

"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.
