"Russia Continues to claim It is ready for talks While at the same time it narrows the avenues for diplomacy There are actions simply do not match Their words You know in Harris says that the U.S. and its allies are united and ready with what she said are unprecedented financial sanctions on key industries and players in Moscow if an attack on Ukraine happens And who else will the Bush president meet with in Munich You know she is also meeting with German Chancellor ola Schultz today Harris is spending time with allies checking in to make sure they're all on the same page about how to respond to a Russian invasion of Ukraine And she says she's been heartened by what she's heard so far There will be some other meetings as well on the sidelines of the Munich security conference Yesterday she met with some of the smaller members of NATO the Baltic states They want more U.S. troops in the region because they're worried about what Russia might do Biden has shored up the U.S. presence in Poland and Romania but there's no immediate words about any other plans for more troops and he has been clear that U.S. troops will not go into Ukraine if attacked And pierce White House correspondent Frank urdu is in Munich thanks so much Thanks Scott And now it's time for sports Pointer Olympics come to a close with another doping scandal on questions about the treatment of young athletes and pierce Tom Goldman is in Beijing Tom thanks so much for being with us Good to be with you Scott Ice skating was at the center of all eyes this week And I understand the saga continues What's the latest It did you know with 15 year old Camila volleyball who is known worldwide now but not the way she wants to be known world wide At the beginning of the games if you remember she helped Russia win the team gold medal and it was after that that her positive test for a banned drug was revealed The International Olympic Committee then said it would delay awarding medals to all three teams until after the valjevo case was resolved possibly months away now the U.S. figure skaters who won silver in that event they're saying they want a sports tribunal to rule before tomorrow's closing ceremony and they want to ruling that forces the medals to be awarded here and now Scott this is a big deal for these athletes to be recognized not months later when it'll seem like an afterthought And of course the IOC doesn't want the image of a possibly tarnished Russian team on the podium as well So this valjevo saga appears to be going to the bitter end at these games Recognizing that this 15 year old girl is under investigation For doping Oh my God What happened to her when she fell and the reaction of her coach Well you know there was so much pressure and negativity surrounding this kid and she is a kid And she crumbled on the ice as many people saw And then the International Olympic Committee committee president Thomas Bach noted publicly had disturbing it was he used the word chilling to see her coach's berating her and not offering her comfort Now not surprisingly Russia has shot back a Kremlin spokesman said about Thomas Spock the IOC president quote he doesn't like the harshness of our coaches but everybody knows that the harshness of a coach and high level sport is key for their athletes to achieve victories Scott I'm assuming there are coaches elsewhere in the world just as dedicated winning who's strongly disagree Not to mention fathers of teens like some of us are Ah It was hard to watch What about the doping case What happened now Yeah well as I mentioned resolution may be months away A hearing to determine if Faye Eva is actually guilty of a doping violation that has to happen and inquiry into those coaches to see what if any involvement they had There's lots of suspicion that eval doped It was the adult surround her who made it happen And then getting to the bottom of why it took about a month and a half for testing and anti doping agencies to reveal her positive test right smack in the middle of the Olympics potentially ruining this 15 year old's budding career Yeah We have a minute left to talk about sports I mean like what actually happened there What do you want to spotlight You know I'm going to mention a quotation Scott from a Chinese figure skater sway Wen Jing is the female member of the pair's team that has skated masterfully here at these games and actually won the gold medal tonight turning the kiss and cry area into a kiss and cry and mob scene when several other Chinese team members ran up for a big hug a thon But anyway sway Wang Jing said this earlier Quote we feel like when we show our best selves to the world the world belongs to us only during the several minutes perhaps billions of people around the world are looking at us This is the most honorable moment of our life What I loved about it Scott it captures so well the feeling of athletes who succeed at the Olympics whether winning medals or not They've trained for years out of the limelight And.

"So the ATP finals are over, Catherine Whitaker spent most of the day. Asleep. But she's here. Awakened just the Nick of time. Hello, Catherine. Just about scrambled myself into the land of the living in time for the podcast. You're welcome. Well, it's obviously to see you. How's your week been? Tiring, tiring, but good. Successful. Good. Yep. Yeah. Well, we've enjoyed watching you, Matt and I, you know, we watched on the TV and we say, oh, we know her. And yeah, no, it's been, it's been an interesting week of tennis that we can bring you up to date with obviously last time we were with you with Friday night. We'd just seen all the group stage matches apart from Novak Djokovic against Cameron nori, which in all honesty didn't mean an awful lot and as expected Djokovic sailed his way through that. And so that left us with semifinals and final to catch up on. And good to also have Catherine on for the first time because she's been a swanning around on TV for the last week and not enough time for us. So, you know, it's nice to see her again. Yeah. Blame the extra hour gap between sessions, David and the hour later. Much start time in Turin. Do I sense Catherine that of all the things that you experienced of Turin's staging that maybe that's the one that has got to go? The session timings. Yes. Yeah, I mean, spoiler alert, I wasn't out in Turing. Our studios in hounslow, we had done about Croft out there for us and we were similar. Crossing out there frequently, but I wasn't out there. So the time difference meant that night session much in the night session. Singles match for us in the UK was starting at 8 p.m., but locally they were starting at 9 p.m. and I know that cultures are different in I'm not quite sure what it's like in Italy. I know in Spain, you know, everything's different people go out for dinner far far later than they do here. But I just think that's too late. I think it's too late. It's too late the year after new session starts too early, and the evening session starts too late. And there's a big old gap in the middle. Yep. And well. And now it's an app. So it's always a time. That's perfectly perfectly sort of packaged. It's you can't nap when you've got two mic packs and an ear pack attached to your waist. And you can't lie down because there's all sorts of stuff going on in your hair. Anyway, get the violins out for all my first world problems. There was a lot of could have been nap time that wasn't. Although I have to say if Catherine can't nap through that, then nobody can. Matt's not here today. He's in Madrid. We'll be catching up with him in a couple of days time when we are building up to the Davis Cup finals. He's out there for that. He's all right. He's successfully got himself over there and he's raring to go. So I can't wait to speak to math about what all that's like. Before we get on to talk about the actual ATP finals, we should bring you up to date with the latest as we know it at least, regarding punctual, because obviously it's a story we've been following all over the last week. And the very latest is that we've at least seen pictures of her. We've seen video footage of her at first of all a dinner and then at a tennis event, what we're told was in Beijing and then finally in a video called which was shown and pictured on the Olympics, the official Olympics website with punctual apparently having a conversation via video link with the IOC president Thomas Bach and in that 30 minute call as it was detailed. She said to have thanked him and the IOC and everybody who's inquiring about her well-being and informed them that she is safe. Well, at home in Beijing and requesting privacy at the end of the article, we are told that he invited her to dinner in the call and that she's accepted. In that article, there is no mention of any of the allegations that she made on her Weibo account, which started this entire situation and the concern over her well-being and the fact that all of her post and subsequently lots and lots of search references to her into tennis seemed to disappear from the Internet in China. And it seemed that they had been in the words of many of the China correspondents for the BBC that they had been scrubbed to use that terminology. This has not put the minds at rest of the WTA. Steve Simon, again, has been, or at least the spokesperson for the WTA is again set today that this is an insufficient information for us. We still want to be able to speak and for us to be absolutely assured that she is speaking without any influence over her. And that an investigation can take place into the allegations that she initially made. So they are still concerned. The AOC Catherine seemed to take a very different approach to this throughout. They've talked about quiet diplomacy being their way forward. I heard a lord co this morning talking on ready a four on the today program. And being pretty defensive of that position and kind of warning against the more combative adversarial, I suppose approach that the WTA have taken the ultimatum really that they've thrown down. But really this is not over the ad. I mean, it's great to see that she's at least seemingly if those are current pitchers and if they are reliable that she is okay physically. But that isn't enough, is it? No, no. No one near. I feel like I've learned more about the IOC and Thomas Bach in the last 24 hours than I have about punctual status. It is, as you say, these developments are. Reassuring of her physical state. But there's still no certainty in that because there is no absolute guarantees of the verified ability of the timing of these images, but assuming that it is reassuring of her physical state and nothing more and there is an awful lot more to this. That I admire and respect Steve Simon for it would be so easy now with the IOC and with Thomas Bart getting proof of life as it were and let's be honest, it would be very easy to go, okay, great. We've done we've pat ourselves on the back. We've done a good thing. We've done our bit. We can still salvage all our relationships and all our financial interests. And move on. And I think, you know, the easy bit is at the start saying, hey, this isn't right..

Format down the road and holy cow could be really cool. Anyone who impressed you. That did not end up on the medal. Stand great question Well this might seem like a cop out but patrick read. I mean the guy steele came here. didn't have to and i think for those who don't like patrick read You don't you didn't have your own commute to japan this week. I had a hellish commute. Doug ferguson had absurd commute. Sean martin had an absurd communities are gulf writers. Patrick reid had to fly commercial over here to like. There was nothing easy about getting to this olympics for everyone involved. Patrick reed did it He impressed me. Who else impressed me. Let's see i think. Ct pan. I'll say that ct pans wife. Oh she caddied for him. She got to the sixteenth t. Now mind you. Hundred and four degree heat index. Yesterday this after caddying forsake for c. throat the full extent of the week. He got in here before like before the The prior weekend. So she's been out here with him in the heat. It's it's really really hot. She gets to the sixteenth. T. and probably isn't totally thinking about metal. She's just thinking about finishing vis caddy job. She's she says she like exhales putting the bag down and this was a carry bag. Mind you this wasn't even a full tour bag that that Salvos wife was carrying. But she's like okay. Three more son is sons beating down and you know their husbands are both grinding. Like truly grinding But both husbands are like pulling three and four clubs out of the bag as they walk from the tee box to their approach shots just to make it a little bit lighter on them and She was she was just like interesting to watch because she's grinding but also just trying to finish his sons beaner down. She impressed me and she was really great. And gracious all through the night Obviously husband wins bronze-medal so she didn't have she'd have just three more. She had like seven more. She didn't know whether she nor c. T. is a particularly large in stature. I would say they are not tiny people. They're not tremendous people in size but people seemed really singer praises like almost universally And then who disappointed you this week. This feels unfair. Because i think he. He showed such excitement to be here and a lot of just. He's he's kinda showed. Excitement of what the olympics this entire time but justin thomas. I was really excited for him to turn that excitement into really good golf. And he started seventy one seventy. Thank you disappointed in gosh. She's so bummed He never got it going. He got going on sunday. Of course when it did matter shot sixty five Finished his t twenty two. This is like this was kind of like at the masters If you missed the cut because you shouldn't miss the cut if you're a good player at the masters there's really only sixty players In that field that are really good. And i think it's top fifty and ties move onto the weekend at augusta There's so many old dudes in the field this field. You can look at it in a somewhat similar way like campiello flew over here superlight. If you don't beat him that's on you. Rafael compass flew over here. Superlight if you don't beat him. He's a lesser player than you and.

"For months has been firmly opposed to staging the games. Tokyo is under a state of emergency. Positive tests have been climbing in the city. I hate to ask it. What's the mood question. But we've never had this sort of tension between an olympics and it's host city. What is it like there. Now as the opening ceremonies approach where there's a high level of anxiety at this point. I mean there's so much media just local media and also international media covering every little test positive tests that comes out so it's really hard for people to feel anxious not to mention as you say cases or climbing in the city itself so every time we hear those gymnasts who tested positive there a beach volleyball player who's tested positive here to players on the south african football team who've tested positive. It's hard for the public to say. Oh my gosh. This thing is spreading rapidly as people are coming into the country so over the weekend there was a poll that showed something like eighty seven percent of people are really worried about hosting the olympics in the middle of a pandemic the borders have been closed in japan so i think the fact that tens of thousands of people are suddenly coming in all at once is creating a lot of anxiety. The japanese media is kind of crawling all over the olympic village. You know they're taking footage of people who look like foreigners walking around on the streets or going to bars and sort of you know the media's attacking them who are you. Are you associated with the olympics. Way out and about so. There's definitely a lot of kind of weird stuff that's going on and anxiety associated with games even bore they've started and here's the i o sea is handling this from a public relations standpoint. Thomas bach the president says there's zero risk from the games to japanese citizens. The associate director of the olympic games says this is probably the most controlled population at this point in time anywhere in the world. These are the messages that people in japan are hearing from organizers. Um i can't imagine that that's playing very well. Well especially since the organizing committee from tokyo through them a welcoming party so everyone knows. The thomas bach came into the country. He took a trip down to heat. Oshima you know he only spent three days in quarantine suddenly. He's appearing at press conferences. And then he's going to this party and when asked about it he says well you know i'm just a guest. I'm sure they're following the rules. So i think he's coming across as a bit imperious at this point and there is a lot of anger also at his first appearance at a press conference since entering the country. He made a little slip up. And thank the chinese people. For the athletes. For all delegations and most importantly also for the chinese japanese people everyone noticed and there was this hashtag trending on twitter ibanez. What will balk do next. So i think there's a lot of cynicism and and i don't think a lot of people feel like they're being told the straight story. I'm really interested because you mentioned a poll earlier that you know showing assads majority of people there don't want to games there and this is also a piece of a time. Why feels like the olympics every year and increasingly unpopular in host cities. So i'm just kinda wondering was ever a point it was. There was a majority of people that wanted to have the game so that there was an approval rating. That was not negative at this point. That's a really good question. I don't totally know the answer to that. I mean i. I will say that before cove. It did seem like people were pretty excited. The olympics and the evidence for that is that applications to be a volunteer way oversubscribed and also applications for ticket sales domestically were also way over subscribed so i tried to get some tickets for my family and we had to enter like multiple lotteries. And we weren't getting tickets. You know we'd see friends and asked. Did you get a ticket to get a ticket like. We couldn't find anyone who would actually gotten tickets so it seemed like it was super popular before covert hit.

What about vaccinations. How are they going in a word slowly. Less than two percent of japan's population has been fully vaccinated. that's the lowest rate amongst the thirty seven members of the oecd club of mostly rich countries. And what's most striking is the source of the problem. It's neither supply. The european union has authorized the export of more than fifty million doses to japan.

"Where co production of GBH NPR EX lesson six months now until the Tokyo Olympics with a lot of unknowns. This week, though International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach did make one thing clear. We are not a speculating off whether the games are taking place. We are working on how the games will take place. In other words, how to keep people safe from the coronavirus. The IOC is encouraging all participating nations to vaccinate their athletes. That's raising logistical and ethical questions, though even from the athletes, here's the world's Bianca Hillier. Rumors have been flying about if how and when Olympic athletes will receive the cove in 19 vaccine. The controversy started when some suggested that athletes would get priority access IOC president Box says That's not happening. There's no blueprint for this, and we are learning every day, but we are not in favor off athletes trumping the Cube. President. Bok emphasized that once health care professionals and vulnerable groups are taken care of then athletes should be offered the shots. Many athletes agree with this stance, even though it jeopardizes their chance of competing three time Paralympian meal. Fahey from the UK says he sees both sides of the coin. Certainly you know, you start to ask those moral questions of well if it was Between yourself and annulled early relative. Then who would you rather gets? The vaccine is quite a difficult one to answer difficult, he explained, because people devote years of their lives to the games, and for some Tokyo 2020 is their final chance to represent their country on the international stage. Then his mind goes to friends and family. You know, I had much rather see my parents vaccine before me because I'm far more worried about the potential health risks for them. As far as when athletes will be offered the vaccine. IOC President Thomas Bach has asked the 206 National Olympic committees to lead their own charge. It is upper tow each government to decide. About the vaccination about access to vaccination in their respective countries. Israel's Olympic Committee says it has already inoculated half of its athletes, while Denmark and hungry say their delegations will get vaccinated in a couple of months. And in Belgium, the country's Olympic committee has already asked its government to pledge 500 vaccines for Olympians and staff. Johan, Bellman's chief physician of the committee, told local media. He doesn't see this as asking for preferential treatment. So Zeke again voting tonight sister from the physical properties that made it started moving, he says. The intention is not to preempt health care workers and vulnerable groups. But we do want to protect our athletes. Obviously, we don't want our athletes to be at a competitive disadvantage. Meanwhile, other countries haven't even started administering the vaccine to essential workers or vulnerable groups, including the host country. Japan itself. Medical workers there are scheduled to get there first shots at the end of February. In the U. S. The CDC considers more than 60% of Americans to be essential workers or otherwise vulnerable to the virus, meaning healthy. Olympic athletes have a long time to wait until it's their turn. Well, it all happen in time for the games. Vivian Reef, Berg spent more than 30 years figuring out operational challenges like this in the health care industry, she says it's possible the number of athletes coming from any one country is on the one hand. Small number relative to the number of vaccines that could be going on. A few 100 athletes, she says, isn't a lot compared to a country of millions. But on the other hand, the distribution and availability of vaccines is very uneven around the world. And even within the wealthiest countries is not widespread referred added that unless more vaccines are widely approved and available, adhering to the IOC's timeline will be a challenge. British Paralympian Neil thought, he says to him. The timeline doesn't sound feasible when you consider how many of the population would be ahead of me. In reality of the point I would be offered. The vaccine is so far down the line. I'd be long past the games have happened, so I think it's inevitable. For US athletes were gonna be jumping the queue to some degree and I guess it's how much we jump it by is the question. I asked the IOC that question once essential workers and others in vulnerable groups are vaccinated. Will athletes then be first in line? Will they be prioritized over the non vulnerable general public? Via email. They declined to comment. The IOC is expected to share more tactics to safeguard the Tokyo Olympics next week. For the world. I'm Bianca holier and one more Olympic related note to share. The IOC is upping its commitments in the fight against climate change. It's setting a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by the end of the decade. IOC President Thomas Bach made the announcement yesterday. In addition to reducing our emissions, we will offset more than 100% off our remaining carbon emissions. The IOC is doing this through the Olympic Forest project combating desertification in Africa Suhel region Within three years. The IOC says it will actually be removing more carbon from the air than it emits, and we're not just talking wonky numbers here. The Olympics have a massive audience and the IOC and host cities are using their bullhorn to show off what they can do that next year's Winter Games in Beijing. All the venues are aiming to run on 100% renewable energy. Faster, higher, stronger and now greener. So let's talk about how carbon offsets exactly work like the one IOC president Thomas Bach mentioned that's on the agenda in our weekly look at climate change Solutions. The big fix way.
