A pretty new point of view for the i. O. c. as well as to increase engagement for youth fans who are passionate about different sports from all over the world or dispassionate about sports as a whole these sports are also not coincidentally quite popular in japan so who decides what stays in. What goes that would be the aforementioned international olympic committee they oversee all aspects of the olympic. Games they run in it in the common parlance of the associations. Ninety nine members many are former athletes or current leaders in athletics from all over the world bonus fact one of the founders of buffalo wild wings was a lifelong figure skater who served on the ioc for a time. The ios's executive board proposes which sports will be included and the rest of the votes on them. A sport must cut certain muster to sway. Those voters there are five factors split into a further thirty five criteria. Such as. How long has the sport existed. How popular is the sport in the host country.

Simone Biles had one disappointing appearance on the vault and then told reporters it was not an injury. It's been really stressful this Olympic games. I think just as a whole not having an audience. There are a lot of different variables going into it. It's been a long week. It's been a long Olympic process. It's been a long Year Without Biles. Russia's Olympic Committee took the gold medal. But the United States still earned silver thanks to the efforts of Simone's good friend and training partner, Jordan Child's 20 Years of age from Vancouver, Washington training in Spring, Texas along with some miles these days, And boy can she explode off of the table very similar to Simone, Watch how high she flies right here all big Jordan.

Jordan moved to gymnastics programs in Vancouver, Washington, capturing her first US junior title at age 13. She also met her gymnastics hero, Simone Biles came out of the elevator and I saw her and I like I never thought I would run as fast as I did to somebody that I did not know to hit it off in. Simone urged her new friend to move to Texas for pro training. She did so after high school and found joy in performing for the person who matters most. Once I realized that idea to stop doing it for other people and start getting it for myself, that's when I was like, just be free. Have fun with Jordan.

A History of Women and the Olympics

"So a lot of the story has to do with french. Feminist alice milia and her women's world games which took place from nineteen twenty two to nineteen thirty four and led the olympics leading women compete in events on a much wider scale. Yeah there's a lot of acronyms in this one so bear with us. The women's world games were yaas response to the international olympic committee's or the international association of athletics. Ias disdain and vera. I wave feminists gaining ground and a lot of women wanting to compete in certain events. Like the eight hundred batur track event events that did not recognize women or have been deemed unfit for women. Yes this eight hundred meter track of it. We're going to get into it. But it caused a lot of controversy when it came to women competing so at this time people and particularly in this context europeans or already talking about gender equality the term. Feminism is thought to have been coined in the eighteen eighties by a french activist by the name of coubertin claire around the same time. Baron pierre do cooper thanh who was also. French founded the modern iteration of the olympics. And the i o dagobert on outright opposed women's participation in sports and this bled over into what events he believed women could and should compete in when it came to the olympics. Day cooper ten allegedly said that the olympics were created for quote the solemn and periodic exaltation of male athleticism with quote female applause as reward. Wow he went on to say quote it is. Indecent spectators should be exposed to the risk of seeing the body of a woman being smashed before there is besides no matter how tough sportswoman may be. Her organism is not cut out to sustain certain shocks her nerves rule. Her muscles nature wanted it that way again day. Cooperstown reason that grow as no women participated in the ancient games. There obviously was to be no place for them in the modern ones. Which just as a brief aside isn't the whole truth sat really the point. But he's wrong. In general yes so the nineteen hundred games or the first allowed women to compete though not officially sanctioned twenty two out of nine hundred ninety seven of the competitors or women and they competed in tennis golf sailing.

"Is dylan. In tokyo japan where it seems like the twenty twenty tokyo olympics are happening after all i had read. That cancelling games this year would have made the international olympic committee lose out on seventy five percent of its four year revenue cycle. But as i sit here waiting for my first dose of the covid vaccine while watching i ac- executives arrive at their five star hotel. I can't help but wonder where does this money go. I hear it mostly comes in from broadcasting licenses but how's it spent. I can't imagine a cancellation. This year would have caused bankruptcy and cancellation of future olympics. Thanks for making smart cool at that. Question comes from tokyo by the way i'm saying. Yeah but i mean. Japan has one of the larger proportions of older residents in the world. And as in a the group most vulnerable to covid and still a pretty low vaccination rates. I mean scary times to have people coming in from all over especially a lot of countries that also have pretty low vaccination rates Yeah bad news. But i guess to answer the question. Where does the money go. I mean if you believe. The international olympic committee they say. Ten percent goes to operations at employee salaries and benefits and that the other ninety percent goes to the games and athlete developments development. That's like scholarships and training facilities and all those things. I have skepticism in my voice because decades of corruption scandals with the olympic committees. And it's unregulated. It's its own thing not accountable to anybody. So yeah

"K Q, E D public radio. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Noel king. And I'm Rachel Martin. We are following a new development in the Trump administration. Standoff with Iran, a Ron's military shot down a US drone in the Persian Gulf NPR has confirmed the attack with the US official, but there is a dispute over where the drone was taken down. Ron says it happened in its airspace. The US says it happened over international waters, treat a party is founder and president of National Iranian American Council. He's with us in our studios. Thanks for coming in. Thank you so much for having. So I treated we had an Iranian attack on the oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. Although around denies is we've also got Ron sang, it will violate the uranium enrichment roles of the nuclear agreement which the US pulled out of a now. We've got the downing of the stone what is provoking run. I as you mentioned. We don't know what happened with tanker. We have differing stories about that in no conclusive evidence has been presented. Same thing goes for some of the attacks that happened in, in Saudi Arabia earlier on. Destroy attack. However, is different because he had Yvonne would have gone to actually announced it and declared it. So it very much depends on whether this was in Yvonne airspace or not, if it wasn't Iran near spaced, and obviously, it's not surprising if they would shoot it down risks to shore, the US would be shooting down every Ronnie and drone got into Merican their space. If it is not, however, if it wasn't international airspace, than it is a very different story at that point, I think it is more clear that what is happening, including some of these other incidents, probably are part of a pattern in which Davanas are now trying to exact the cost on the US economic warfare that the US has been conducting against for the last two years. I mean, do you think the Trump administration miscalculated about how strongly a want Iran would respond to that pressure campaign? Oh, I think that Trump, let me put it this way. I think Donald Trump has been misled by people like John Bolton as well as some of the leaders in the region, such as Netanyahu, an MBA. ES who wants to see war with you? And I think they have tried to convince him, I think somewhat successfully that event is no different from Syria, that you can strike with a couple of Tomahawks won't dare to respond the volumes are showing quite clearly that they are ready to respond and defend themselves. If attacked, and perhaps, even if it was in international airspace, escalate tensions themselves. I mean, does this feel exceptional to you, because Ron and the United States historically have gotten into these back and forth? They certainly have. And I think one of the things that is somewhat problematic. Is that both sides have proven to be quite wrong in some of their statements? So, for instance, there's a long history of the Iranian navy. Harassing American ships in international waters. There's also a history of the US denying being inside of volume waters was something happened and laid on turning out that he actually wasn't Yvonne water. So, for instance, nineteen eighty eight the United States US shutdown, in Iranian, passenger plane, the US I denied it later on turned out, not only did it shoot. It down. It was deep inside of Iran in what is when it shot down. It was a civilian passage in plan to under ninety people got killed when the Brits had some of their sailors, arrested about ten or so years ago in the Persian Gulf. They denied that they were Vanni waters British parliamentary inquiry later on reveal that they actually were any volume lawyers, so we don't know, we need more evidence to be able to truly awesome conclusions of what happened and what the implications of it. How do you do? Escalate. I mean, if you were advising the Trump administration. What is the way out of this month? You need diplomacy more than anything else. But I think it's impossible to have diplomacy ball. The US is at the same time pursuing economic warfare that economic warfare is going to at some point any may already have compelled. Yvonne, is to respond. And at that point, if you don't have any exit ramps, you are very, very bad situation departure, professor, Georgetown University, and author of the book losing an enemy Obama Iran, and the triumph of diplomacy tree to thank you. Thank you so much for having the US Olympic Committee has a board meeting today in Chicago, and it's going to need to answer some tough questions. The organization has faced a lot of criticism over how it is dealt with sexual abuse scandals. Alexandra Starr has that story. This week members of congress arrived in Colorado Springs home to the US Olympic Committee there. They demanded changes. Democratic congresswoman Diana get heads the committee, that oversees the USOC when the very body that congress created to care for athletes becomes more, concerned about winning and protecting brand than the athletes themselves. It is time for a change more than three decades ago. Congress created the USOC and gave it a monopoly over the Olympic trademark that has been interpreted to mean everything from the phrase go for the gold to the five rings in two thousand sixteen the USC took an almost three hundred fifty million dollars mostly from marketing fees, and broadcast rights. Nancy Hogshead may car leads champion women and advocacy organization. She says giving me such a marketable property, an exercising little oversight ended up short. Changing athletes administrator class has taken all the cookies for itself. They stay in the five star hotels, and are really treated like semi royalty less than a tenth of the USOC is revenues go directly to athletes hugs had made car says the organization has a lot of leverage over. Spiring olympians. They have to be obedient and subservient in order to make the team, swimmer BJ Bedford, who wanna gold medal at the Sydney games in two thousand says the fact that the Olympics, hold such alert can make young people vulnerable to predators within sport. The Olympics was starts with a dream. There's nothing I wouldn't have done and not put athletes at risk because if someone says do this and I'll get you to the Olympics. It's really hard to say no, that's a reference to the sexual abuse scandals that have Royal Olympic sports. The most notorious case. Case was former gymnastics team, Dr Larry Nassar who molested more than five hundred girls and women under the guise of medical treatment judge. Rosemarie Aquilina, who presided over Nassar's trial, supports shaking up the USOC athletes cannot thrive in a broken system that values money and medals over the safety of athletes. We need to flip the script the proposed legislation would convene a panel to investigate the USOC it would then make recommendations to reorganize it. This is not the only reform circulating on Capitol Hill, their discussions of creating an inspector general to permanently oversee the US Olympic movement. Hand Xiao is chair of the US's athlete advisory council. He's his the commission as just a first step to bigger reforms, the commission represents an opportunity for athletes to be. Be at that table to decide what the legislation looks like in a statement, a spokesperson for the USOC says it looks forward to working with legislators a year ago, the USC hired Lisa borders, the former head of the WMBA to propose changes. She's expected to talk about them as early as today for NPR news. I'm Alexandra Starr in Washington. This is NPR news. It's coming up on seven forty three on Thursday morning on KiKi weedy.

I'll ask some of the leaders in the region such as BB Netanyahu, an MBA, who wants to see a war with Iran, and I think they have tried to convince him, and I think somewhat successfully that Yvonne is no different from Syria, that he can strike with a couple of Tomahawks, and he won't respond. The volumes are showing quite clearly that they are ready to respond and defend themselves. If attacked, and perhaps, even if it was in international airspace, escalate tensions themselves. I mean, does this feel exceptional to you, because a Ron and the United States historically have gotten into these back and forth? They certainly have. And I think one of the things that is somewhat problematic. Is that both sides have proven to be quite wrong in some of their statements? So, for instance, there's a long history of the Iranian navy. Harassing American ships in international waters. There's also a history of the US denying being inside of volume waters was something has happened and laid on turning out that he actually wasn't Yvonne in water. So, for instance, nineteen eighty eight the United States USS shutdown in Yvonne, passenger plane, the US I denied it laid on it turned out, not only did it shoot it down. It was deep inside of running waters when it shot it down. It was a civilian passenger plane, two hundred ninety people got killed when the Brits, had some of their sailors, arrested about ten or so years ago in the Persian Gulf. They denied that they were Yvonne waters a British parliamentary inquiry later on reveal that they actually were Yvonne in waters. So we don't know we need more evidence to be able to truly draw some conclusions of what happened here and what the implications of it is. How do you. De-escalate. I mean, if you were advising the Trump administration. What is the way out of this moment, you need diplomacy more than anything else? But I think it's impossible to have the placebo. The US is at the same time pursuing economic warfare that economic warfare is going to at some point any may already have compelled Yvonne to respond. And at that point, if you don't have any exit drops, you, an very, very bad situation.

"Not parties, and it's the most destructive thing we have signed me up for that. So let me ask you. This is an even less palatable idea to most people than yours. But even if the people going in have the best intentions, which, I truly believe they often do they want to serve the public good that once you get into the system, you're incentives change that rather than long-termism, which we want for policy, you get involved in a lot of short termism in terms of consolidating power and getting reelected. So from an economic perspective, I could see perhaps aligning incentives, better by let's say rewarding elected officials financially by setting up some kind of revenue share that pays off over the long term, if the projects that they work on actually workout. Here's a way that you could sell that instead of talking about redistribution. Talk about the. Predisposed bution? The idea is kind of sovereign wealth funds. So maybe it's not a reward for the politician or the elected official, but for all of us in which I would have a stake to that if we are able to do something that has some payoff. We put twenty percent of that into some public good, but it's not just a check, that's kind of after the fact say, we'd go back to state universities, having free tuition. Not just something that figure out afterwards by taking more money from the super wealthy or from corporations, but actually something that's an investment at the front end. So then I would have an incentive because I do think it's a caricature that people who are elected get more and more disconnected. I mean, we pursued the Olympics in one Olympics and Paralympics for twenty twenty eight and people are like, oh well you don't care about the Olympics. You're not gonna even be mayor. Then if there's cost overruns, and I say, no, I'm going to be worse than a mayor. I'm going to be a taxpayer living here in Los Angeles. Most economists argue that when cities or regions go for big public event like the Olympics or conventions World Cup and so on that us. Usually fiscally. It turns out, not to be good for the city. I know LA's successfully done the Olympics before obviously, you think it can work. Well here again, why, why is LA different is because of the existence of the infrastructure, and so on, it's our infrastructure and the way we do the Olympics. So we've had it twice before nineteen thirty two returned million dollar profit in one thousand nine hundred four we introduced a whole new model with sponsorship and kind of save the Olympics. The US Olympic Committee was broke and we made hundreds of millions of dollars. It's the infrastructure and people do things like build a new railway to so cheap. Well, that's not like the Olympics that was a fifty billion or whatever dollar railway that people put into the Olympics as if that's inherent boondoggle, and you're getting your boondoggles in early now so that they can't better than that. We delayed twenty Twenty-eight let periscope I in twenty twenty four and we negotiated one hundred sixty million dollars up front so sixteen million dollars a year has been going into doubling the number of kids, who get swim classes, and African American Latino kids. Over half of them, don't know how to swim, and it's the second leading accidental killer of kids under twelve so we are putting into public good now and main reasons why a lake and get away with it and other places are right to avoid, it is building Olympic village. We're using UCLA. So we're just renting those rooms were we've got all the infrastructure, the most expensive stadium in human history has been built without public subsidy in Inglewood here for the Rams and the chargers we're gonna use that we have the call a Siham. We have the staple center. So we're just renting the incredible sports facilities. We already have here. We have a velodrome we've got tennis court. So most other cities are smart to not bid, but we hope to get the Olympics to kind of chill out, on needing to build so many new things. So the moral of the story is the Olympics should only be held in Los Angeles..

"More by a home or just gain a better perspective on a subject affects all of us. Just search for how to money. Welcome back to the the hustle here. In the studio with us is. And what do you think it is about your psychographic, you personally hope that made you the one that stayed with it, you know, your other teammates. They also part of the initial filing and public sort of announcement that you aren't gonna stand for the same more. But ultimately, you're the one that was down to stand between the sticks and beat the goalkeeper and take all the pressure without the glory of being the forward and scoring the game winner. And similarly this is not like the glorious mountain to stand on top of this is the one that your teammates really truly needed. And what do you think it is about you that made you the person that that had whatever whatever it is is your that made you the woman that is leading this charge. I I have no idea that labeled throughout my career. Some those labels have been outspoken and the media seem to use that against me like it was a negative. And then I realized later in my career that being outspoken is actually a really positive thing. Because silence doesn't change the world. The only way to changes by fighting for it. And by speaking about it and by being loud about it. So being outspoken now is something I take pride in. But also with those labels people try to label me a selfish and to be called selfish has has hurt me quite deeply. But as I also told you earlier, I have met a number of different people who have come in into our team and wanna fight against the powers that be alongside of us. And that has been incredible to see because we are slowly growing and growing and growing I think at one point in time we're going to be big enough to actually take on the likes of US soccer fica as well as the US Olympic Committee. Because there's a lot of change that needs to happen within sport and not just within US hawker. And I don't know if you're aware that we actually have a complaint going right now with the Olympic Committee. It's regarding the Ted Stevens, the Ted Stevens act requires every national governing body national governing body just for your audience is what US soccer is you? Take USA gymnastics. That's in national governing body you take swimming. That's an engine so all of these programs that compete for the Olympics have N GP's that Ted Stevens app states that every n GP has to support, for instance, with soccer, so US ockers and has to support all of soccer in America, not just professional soccer. But right now, US soccer is putting most of their money right into the US men's and women's national teams as well as Major League Soccer, and they are neglecting the paralympian team. They are neglecting the US deaf team. They're neglecting the Hispanic Ling's the adult leagues and youth soccer throughout America. So we finally made a an official complaint with the USOC, and we actually are in arbitration with that as well. And that's a great transition to youth soccer in the US. We met through street soccer USA, which is a wonderful organization. Trying to bring sport and teamwork and two people that otherwise wouldn't have the means to go into paid soccer. And I know that something that you've spoken about publicly a bit as well. What what do you think the state of use soccer's today? What do you think we could do to improve it in the US? I always make the comparison to LeBron James out of acre. No hieaux. How are we in in our soccer community going to find the LeBron James of soccer? If we are not opening our doors to every community the cost to play soccer into be on a developmental team is is doesn't allow for families who are underrepresented communities or families with three or four children doesn't allow them to play because of the cost is so high. So soccer America right now has become a rich white kid sport. And if I were to play in this day and age if I was young soccer player. My family would never have been able to afford the fees for me to play the travel fees..

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro. Audie cornish. When President Trump announced that he was declaring a national emergency at the border with Mexico. He made clear he was expecting a fight in the courts, we will possibly get a bad ruling. And then we'll get another bad ruling, and then will end up in the supreme court, and hopefully we'll get a fair shake several lawsuits have already been filed against the administration. One that many are watching for is a suit from the house of representatives one branch of government suing another for some insight into how this might play out. We called Stanley brand he was the general counsel for the house under democratic speaker tip O'Neill in the seventies and eighties. I I asked him. What argument the house could make about how it's been legal terms injured by the president's move while they're injury will be that their legislative power has been notified that they passed the law as provided in constitution by majorities in both houses. They sent it to the president, and he signed it and. He's ignoring it. And he's going around the limitations in law to allocate money for a purpose? They haven't denominated in the legislation. So there's the money part. Would they address the whole idea of whether or not it's an emergency was the question on whether this is an emergency is a question that goes beyond their their injury. Or they're standing to sue that gets to what we call the merits. And that is is the president's decision. Assuming that the legislators have obtained standing is that unconstitutional or illegal as former attorney for the house of representatives. What's it been like for you to watch all of this play out? Well, in one sense, I've been here before when I was council, and when I worked for tip O'Neill, we had something called the War Powers resolution, which was a reaction to the imperial presidency of Richard Nixon and the debate at the time was has congress bypass in the War Powers resolution. In fact, given the president authority he didn't have beforehand which is the thirty to commit US troops to foreign action without a declaration of war or to repel a sudden attack. So this is a history that we've gone through before where congress delegates certain decision making to the president and doesn't specify the limits for that delegation. And then later on there's a fight when he applies it in a way that the congress doesn't like what are you going to be listening for going forward? The department of Justice will raise a host of what we call threshold issues. These issues that stop you from getting into court at all like standing the other one is rightness, which is essentially the case isn't ready to be decided because no adverse action has happened until the president goes beyond the one point three billion. That was appropriated the department will be able to argue no one's been injured yet because he hasn't spent the money past the amount that the congress provided so there'd be a host of those issues, including statutory issues, like whether the appropriation which provides for military construction can be construed to include a board fence Stanley brand. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Good to talk to you Stanley brand is the distinguished fellow. So in law and government at Penn State's Dickinson law school today. USA gymnastics named its fourth CEO in less than two years. The new leader of USA gymnastics is Leon she will be leaving a job as an executive with the NBA to take the role. She's also a former collegiate gymnast reporter Alexandra Starr joins us to talk about her appointment. Hi there. Hi. So USA gymnastics has pretty much been in free-fall since news broke in two thousand sixteen that former team doctor Larry Nassar had molested hundreds of athletes he's now behind bars for life. So where do things stand at USA gymnastics today? Things have been bad. The organization has been leaderless for months in the fall. The US Olympic Committee started the process of decertification that basically meant that USA gymnastics would no longer be the organisation overseeing the sport and then two and a half months ago. USA gymnastics declared bankruptcy that is quite a string of events. What impact of the bankruptcy? Have it? Put the. Dozens of lawsuits that have been filed against the organization on ice. And it also put a halt to the US Olympic Committee's effort to decertify, USA gymnastics. Now, the head of the US Olympic Committee says she's very hopeful Leon can turn things around. So it looks like the organization is going to get another chance you've been covering USA gymnastics in-depth, do you think she can turn things around? She certainly saying the right things. This is what she said on a press. Call today. I have glad I have sweated. I have cried alongside my teammates alongside other gentlemen. And it breaks my heart to see the state that the sport is in today. And that is why she says she wants USA gymnastics to be more athletes Centric, and she also pointed to settling lawsuits with Larry Nassar's survivors as one of her top priorities. All that set. The attorney representing most of those survivors was scathing about her -pointment. So we can expect more conflict ahead. So that's what the attorney representing the survivors said has there been much reaction from the survivors themselves. The people who were abused by Larry Nassar, some have been coming forward and saying that they were not consulted on this appointment, and they seem to be arguing at this point that. They're concerned that she is not going to be a real agent of change. Do you think she might have more success than the string of executives who have been cycling through this position? Look, I think she is better prepared for this job. Then the last two people you've seen the last CEO former congresswoman Mary Bono lasted less than a week and the job. So I think she's going to improve on those performances at the same time. The organization has been in such disarray for so long and reforming. It is going to be such a heavy lift we'll have to see if anyone can turn this around. So we'll be watching as we see how she moves forward. As we move into Olympic preparation time. Just ask a bigger picture question. Here there will be gymnasts in the United States competing at international levels, whether or not USA gymnastics as an organization survives. Why is it so important for somebody anyone to turn this organization around? That's a good question. I mean, something that is really remarkable is how extraordinary the women's gymnastics team is just one look at them. You know, they've won gold medal after gold medal. They cleaned up at the world championships last year, the same time this so-called national governing body these USA gymnastics plays a role in developing a pipeline and staging these tournaments and getting people together for these camps. So it's not stuff we'd necessarily see, but it is important work. And I think people who are advocates for the sport really do want to see this organization turnaround. It's reporter Alexandra Starr, thank you very much. Thank you. Tomorrow on morning edition. We hear about the violence engulfing Haiti protesters. There have been demanding that the president step down amid accusations of corruption. Now five Americans have been arrested in the chaos.

"Just wondering, I know she's so inspiring. I think for me it would have to be a comp to fencing and the closest would have been tennis. And I would have had a really stayed active in training for tennis. See you weren't in college while you were fencing you finished your career fencing, and then you went on to get your MBA or you got your MBA while you were a winter Saint John's on full fence and scholarships. You did I was gonna say did you end up getting your fencing scholarship did? Yeah. And that's when I realize it was a business. I'll never forget this. I stepped in for freshman orientation, and they're like, oh, yeah. You know athletes over here. Arguer freshman over there. Oh, okay. And I gone in with a dual degree major of physics, electrical engineering, and they're like, no athletes. Don't take those majors. You gotta change it up because you have weight room practice this practice and study all yada, yada, yada. Yeah. I had more really disciplined to their credit. They're like, look you're here win championships and so forth. So I was like all right. Got it. See weren't able to really pursue anything else that you wanted to learn or get a degree in anything else that you had to be because they were paying for you to be there, essentially, which is I understood my job, right? Crystal clear, when I graduated because of that, I had this great foundation of experience able to quickly become a professional athlete after graduating. And then it was after my second Olympic Games in Athens. When I was like, oh my God. I have to make a decision of what I wanna do. I said Beijing was going to be my last games. And then I applied to. School at the same time. So after the games I started business school like a week later and went to Columbia went to Columbia fulltime. And so I retired like everyone in the US on the committee thought I was crazy 'cause I retired from like competing everybody in the fencing of million. The US Olympic Committee those crazy because number two in the world at all these years, and I was like, no I'm gonna go to business school because you can't be an athlete forever. Right. I mean, you can be an athlete for a long time. I wonder you know, if all athletes really think that way though, I mean like business you're in it, and you're building it. And then you have to be so forward thinking to plan your next ten twenty years 'cause it doesn't last forever. Exactly. And that's something that I had saw with a lot of my teammates were older than me. They had a really tough time transitioning when their body started to give out and I was like, oh, man. I don't want this happen to me. And like I. Be fully prepared. And it's a big problem across all sports. And I actually after I retired. I got involved with the International Olympic Committee, helping athletes make the transition from across the world from being an athlete or professional athlete to what's necks in figuring that out. Yeah. I mean, I think that I have in my career a lot of athletes come to me with books that they're launching or apps that they're starting or just like reinventing. So you went to Columbia guy MBA and then you worked Google, yes. I worked at Google briefly. One of the what it was like living out in California. So went out there hung out for a few months wasn't for me. And I'm an east coast person. Yes. My thing that I I will say about Google. When I was it. Drove me crazy.
