Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai recently disappeared from public view after accusing a former government official of sexual assault. But the International Olympic Committee says it spoke with Peng on a video call Sunday, and that she appeared to be safe and well. We discuss lingering concerns with Rob Koehler, director-general of Global Athlete, an international athlete-led, activist group; and Yaqiu Wang, senior researcher on China at Human Rights Watch.

Hour 2 -  Nick Reed talks about a variety of topics in the news, including: City Utilities announced that it's set to purchase two electric buses. CoxHealth CEO, Steve Edwards, announced that he will be retiring. The International Olympic Committee said they held a 30-minute call with Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai. Peng wrote on social media earlier this month alleging sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of China's former vice-premier Zhang Gaoli. Peng claimed Zhang, 75, forced her to have sex despite repeated refusals following a round of tennis three years ago. The post was quickly deleted and then Peng disappeared from social media for over two weeks.

There are continued concerns about the Chinese tennis star, Peng Shuai, despite officials from the International Olympic Committee confirming they've had a video conversation with her. The IOC said Ms Peng had assured them she was safe and well, but that she wanted her privacy respected. Peng Shuai disappeared earlier this month shortly after claiming she'd been sexually assaulted by a former senior Communist Party official. The Women's Tennis Association says it's still not satisfied that the player is free to talk without censorship. Justin Webb speaks to the BBC's correspondent John Sudworth, who has moved to Taiwan after coming under pressure whilst reporting in China, and then Lord Coe, the Head of World Athletics and former Head of the British Olympic Association.

Sudan's Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok was reinstated in a deal struck with the military leadership, weeks after the October 25th coup. But the agreement failed to rouse optimism in pro-democracy protesters who feel their Prime Minister may have agreed under duress. We hear from a protester in Khartoum who says the deal only handed more power to the military. We also speak to the former US assistant secretary of state for Africa, who says this is a positive step in the transition to a civilian government. Also on the programme: Some Mexican deportees are finding ways to rebound in their home country; And after calls for information regarding Peng Shuai, The International Olympic Committee says its president, Thomas Bach, has held a video call with the Chinese tennis star and claims all is well.

The International Olympic Committee has announced a new framework for transgender and intersex athletes this week. In part, the guidelines say no athlete has an inherent advantage just because of physical appearance, gender or intersex identities. The guidelines also move away from using testosterone levels alone to determine eligibility. And we hear the personal story of Sofie Lovern, a Mexican American standup comedian from Oakland, California, who converted to Islam as a young adult. Plus, Shohei Ohtani has been called the Japanese Babe Ruth.

The murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, after eight days of testimony, has gone to a jury in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to arrive at verdicts in the highly publicized case.The jury, which finished its second day of deliberation Tuesday, was considering seven counts, including first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, and attempted first-degree homicide. As Americans wait to learn Rittenhouse's fate, it's helpful to look back and see how we got here.Self-defense expert and attorney Andrew Branca extensively covered the trial's ins and outs. Branca has written that he thinks the jury should find Rittenhouse, 18, not guilty because he acted in self-defense in shooting three men who pursued him during a riot in Kenosha, killing two."I don't even think it's close. It should be an acquittal on all these criminal charges," Branca says. "I'm sure what we're experiencing here is a holdout of one or perhaps two jurors. The evidence is not close on any of these issues."Branca joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss what you need to know about the case.We also cover these stories:The Occupational Safety and Health Administration suspends implementation of President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for private employers, pending litigation.The International Olympic Committee releases new guidance for intersex and transgender athletes, reversing policies requiring biological males who identify as females to lower their testosterone levels.House Democrats censure and strip committee assignments from Rep.

The International Olympic Committee has unilaterally declared that testosterone has no impact on athletic performance, and so no man in a dress may be excluded from female athletic competitions regardless of whether or not he's had his penis removed. That's good to know. I'm kind of ambivalent about the decision. On one hand, I don't think this sort of thing should be embraced or normalized. On the other, it raises the barriers to entry for women in competitive athletics, giving them less of a reason to defer child bearing. Let's explore the pros and cons of leftist degeneracy!

Dr. Johanna Mellis, a former D1 swimmer and current history professor at Ursinus College, joins Lera for a lively conversation on the history of sports in Hungary during the Cold War. They also touch on the Olympics (past and present), sport diplomacy, and the development of competitive sports on an international plane. For a great visual timeline of Sport in the Cold War and further related resources and collections, visit the Wilson's Center digital archive: https://digitalarchive.wilsoncenter.org/theme/sport-in-the-cold-war ABOUT THE GUEST https://www.ursinus.edu/live/image/scale/3x/gid/7/width/250/height/250/38576_171-Ursinus2021_copy.rev.1635790475.jpg Dr. Mellis is assistant professor in the history department at Ursinus College. She was a D1 swimmer at the College of Charleston from 2004-2008 and co-captain of the team from 2006-2008. She was the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) conference champion in the 400 Individual Medley in 2006, and a bronze medalist that year in the 200 butterfly. She later coached at High Tide Aquatics and Gator Swim Club in Gainesville, FL while getting her MA and PhD at the University of Florida. Dr. Mellis's research focuses on Cold War sport. Her manuscript, Changing the Global Game: Hungarian Athletes and International Sport During the Cold War, examines Hungarian sportspeople's interactions with the International Olympic Committee from 1948-1989. Changing the Global Game shows how Hungarian athletes, Socialist Hungarian state sport officials, and the IOC gradually realized by the 1960s that sporting cooperation with one another - and not East-West political clashes nor resistance - was the way to achieve their respective aims of sport success, career and financial stability, and political and institutional strength. Dr. Mellis is also a cohost of the End of Sport podcast with Drs. Nathan Kalman-Lamb and Derek Silva. They interview athletes, critical sports journalists, and fellow academics to explore all the ways that people use sport to harm others - i.e. through racist mascotry, the NCAA and higher ed's exploitation of Black and Brown college athletic workers, sexual abuse and harassment, transphobia, and more. Through the End of Sport (endofsport.com), she has co-authored pieces for public outlets such as The Chronicle of Higher Ed, The Guardian, Time, The Baffler, and more.

Temperatures in the mid- to high-30s. Air so humid it felt like a sauna. For many athletes, the Tokyo Olympics were a slog. So why did they hold the games in the middle of Tokyo's blazing hot summer? Why not October? That's what organizers did for the 1964 Games in Tokyo. The 1968 Games in Mexico City and the 1988 Games in Seoul were also held after those cities' hottest months. During the '80s, the games grew wildly popular as a global TV event. U.S. broadcaster ABC paid $225 million (¥24.8 billion) for the rights to broadcast the games. But the 2000 Games in Sydney — which began on Sept. 15 — saw TV ratings fall. This was partly because almost none of the events were shown live in the U.S. because of the time difference. But another reason was that the 2000 Games had to compete with American and European sports schedules. During September and October, the U.S. sports calendar is full of sports, including MLB regular season games and playoffs for the NFL. “The Summer Olympics are simply of less value if held in October because of preexisting program commitments for sports,” Neal Pilson, the former president of CBS Sports, told Reuters in 2018. But if the Olympics are held in July and August, there are more people looking for sports to watch. For many countries, this is also when school is out. In fact, the timing of the 2020 Games was a condition of the International Olympic Committee. The IOC makes money by selling the TV rights to the games. That means that athletes — who get money from sports federations that get money from the IOC — will need to keep one eye on the calendar and another on the weather charts.

On This Day In HistoryThe Black Power Salute of 1968Tommie Smith and John CarlosIt was a move that drew international attention and controversy when Tommie Smith and John Carlos lifted their fists to give the Black Power salute during the national anthem at the medal ceremony in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City on Oct. 16, 1968.  The move sparked instant controversy. The International Olympic Committee president deemed the act to be a domestic political statement that was inappropriate for the apolitical Olympic Games. As a result, the two were ordered suspended from the American team and banned from the Olympic Village. The two athletes were expelled from the Games.The Black Power salute photo, one of the most influential protest images of all time, was captured 50 years ago when U.S. sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos stepped onto the world stage during the Summer Olympics in Mexico City.It was Oct. 16, 1968. Smith had just won gold and Carlos had taken bronze in a blazing 200-meter dash. Australian sprinter Peter Norman, who had won silver, stood to their right.When "The Star-Spangled Banner” began to play, Smith lowered his head and raised his right fist.Carlos raised his left. Life magazine photographer John Dominis raised his lens and clicked.Dominis's photograph would freeze that moment of silent protest. The picture would slingshot around the world, capturing all the angst and anger of 1968. The photo would become an iconic image of the Black Power movement and an emotional reference point among NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality.Dominis, who died in 2013, said later he had no idea in that stadium in 1968 that his shot would make history.Sources: BET and Associated Press, DeNeen L.

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleagues Chris Baldwin of Angry Afro Radio and Malissa Smith of Girlboxing on the WAAR Room. A video of this discussion has also been posted on the Angry Afro Radio YouTube page.Our discussion took place Sunday, October 3.We finally have proof of what many already knew or suspected: Much of Olympic boxing has been fixed.On September 30, an independent report, mainly focusing on boxing at the 2016 Rio Olympics, was released by an investigative team led by Professor Richard McLaren. His team also had helped document the Russian state-sponsored doping program in the Olympics.This report documented how officials in AIBA, the Olympic boxing federation, fixed the selection of referees and judges at the fights in the 2016 Olympics, how they manipulated results, the culture of corruption and bribery in Olympic boxing, and how these corrupt practices were carried out and enabled by the top leadership in AIBA at the time.As the report stated, in AIBA,"The people are the problem." It should also be added that what corrupt governments have done in the Olympic movement has been a key reason why Olympic boxing has been so corrupt. The full report can be read here.While this investigation was undertaken at the behest of the current, new leadership of AIBA, many questions remain as to whether or not corruption has been sufficiently rooted out in this organization. The International Olympic Committee suspended AIBA as boxing's Olympic governing body in June 2019, and thus far has not indicated if or when it will be reinstated. The IOC organized the boxing competition at the recently completed Tokyo Olympics without AIBA.We discussed what we know about how the Olympic boxing bouts were manipulated, some of the fights that may have been fixed, the obvious and not-so-obvious motives for this rampant corruption, the implications of this crisis in amateur and Olympic boxing for professional boxing, how this type of corruption in the overall Olympic movement is far from unique, and much more.Malissa Smith also brought us the latest news from women's boxing, including multi-divisional champ Amanda Serrano signing with Jake Paul's newly-formed promotional company. We discussed what this might mean for a potential showdown between Serrano and undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor, what is next for unbeaten middleweight and super welterweight champion Claressa Shields who has been fighting in MMA as of late, and much more.Plus, we discussed the postponement of the 2022 Gay Games in Hong Kong to 2023, the latest Triller Trash news and why they are the frontrunner for the 2021 Roger Mayweather "You Don't Know Shit About Boxing" Award, and more.All this is part of our in-depth coverage of the corrupt world of boxing and sports governance in general.Please also subscribe to the No Holds Barred page on Patreon for much more exclusive premium No Holds Barred content.Now you can also support our independent, No Holds Barred journalism by purchasing items such as T-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, pillows, masks, and even mini-skirts at the new No Holds Barred with Eddie Goldman shop on Redbubble.

Before all that, we reminisce about how Tony's appearance on the show came to be, through a Cameo from a listener and we learn the insane number of Cameos Tony has done. Elsewhere, Stefan and John ask Tony for advice on being cool which leads to John committing how to learn to hardflip.

Alistair Brownlee is the Dual Olympic Games Champion (2012 and 2016 Olympic Games) becoming the first Triathlete in history to have defended their title.  His younger brother Jonny secured the bronze in London making history as the first brothers in Olympic history for a podium in an individual sport since 1908. Jonny's silver in 2016 made history again for the brothers becoming the first British brothers to ever finish first and second in an individual event at an Olympic Games. Alistair is the two-time World Series Triathlon Champion, 4X European Champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games Champion.  Alistair is the first triathlete to be nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year and was bestowed the honour of flagbearer for England in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Alistair was a candidate for the International Olympic Committee's Athletes Commission and has since turned his attention to long course racing having picked up Dual Ironman Distance race wins, runner up in the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and an eye on becoming the first triathlete in history to break the seven-hour barrier for an Ironman distance event with Phoenix's sub seven-hour attempt upcoming in 2022. Alistair has become an author, publishing "Relentless: Secrets of the Sporting Elite".  In this episode Alistair discusses "Relentless", his career highs, lows and learnings, his own reflection on dropping Jonny in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Triathlon to secure the win. We look at that history making event, the grand final of the World Triathlon series in Cozumel 2016, where Alistair in what many have said redefined their confidence and faith in modern sport by carrying and assisting heat stricken younger brother Jonny across the line.

For skateboarding, a sport where the No. 1 rule is that there are no rules, the straitjacket of the Olympic Games, with its dense thickets of tradition and regulation, may not be a natural or immediate fit. So at the Tokyo Games, freewheelin' skaters and Olympic officials are going to learn a lot about each other. Could be quite a ride. Both have plenty to gain from making a splash with their brand-new partnership. Skating is one of four debut Olympic sports, along with karate, surfing and sport climbing. The spectacle of skaters turning their boards into flying machines, soaring over obstacles, will deliver a rejuvenating injection of youthful energy to the dowdy sporting extravaganza. The youngest, Japan's Kokona Hiraki and Britain's Sky Brown, are just 12. With skateboarding's street fashions and “all are welcome” inclusive culture of all genders, ages and abilities having fun together, officials anticipate that the sport will help snag future generations of Olympic fans and viewers that the International Olympic Committee needs to keep making megabucks from the games. For skaters, the powerful Olympic spotlight means global visibility, which may bring better prospects of earning a living from riding and sponsorships. Skaters also hope the Olympic seal of approval will mean more funding for skate parks and bowls in which to train, land and invent their tricks. Some skaters fret that Olympic codification will come at a cost for the freedom, spontaneity and soul of a sport that was born on the streets. They argue that skating is a whole lifestyle, and worry it will be crimped and compromised by being co-opted. There were similar misgivings among snowboarders — before snowboarding went on to become one of the most riotous and popular shows at the Winter Olympics.

Every two years the Olympic Games promise to be historic. Athletes defy odds, break records, and achieve feats unimaginable to most of us. But the 2020 games have consistently made headlines for the wrong reasons, particularly for the US Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee's poor treatment and discrimination of athletes, especially Black women athletes. From Sha'Carri Richardson's pre-Olympic suspension for smoking legal marijuana to the International Federation's ban on swim caps designed for natural Black hair, or from the testosterone testing of two Namibian runners to the decades long abuse, lack of accountability, and disregard towards the mental health of athletes. The stories are almost too many to keep track of, but thankfully Ria Tabacco Mar, the Director of the ACLU's Women's Rights Project helps us parse through what we've watched unfold.

Breaking, also known as break-dancing, borne in New York City in the 1970s, is set to make its debut at the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024. Four-time breaking world champion, BoxWon (Benyaamin Barnes McGee), traces how breaking went from Bronx block parties to NYC's downtown art scene, to the world. Speaking to legends of breaking, such as Rock Steady Crew's Ken Swift and B-Boy Glyde from Dynamic Rockers, BoxWon reveals how punk impresario, Malcolm McLaren, helped breaking become a worldwide craze in the 1980s - before it vanished. But when the mainstream got bored, breaking didn't die - it just went back underground, only to re-emerge a decade later more extreme than ever. Breaking is once again a global phenomenon, with pro dancers coming from all corners of the world – Russia, Japan, and South Korea are now home to some of the world's very best. But when the International Olympic Committee confirmed breaking as a new sport for the Olympic Games in Paris 2024, many people were taken by surprise. The last time they had heard of breaking was back in the 1980s - a fad which swiftly disappeared with shoulder pads and leg warmers. Breaking Through tells the fascinating story of how this dance-form survived and evolved outside of the media spotlight, fuelled by the scene's die-hard devotees. Now, as it attracts global corporate sponsorship and demands for more stringent rules and regulations, we hear about the breaking world's own internal battle to maintain its integrity.

The opening ceremony for the 2020 Summer Olympics, in Tokyo, is scheduled for Friday. With COVID{:.small}-19 cases spiking worldwide, and Japan under a state of emergency, many wonder whether the Olympics should be cancelled. Angela Ruggiero competed in four Olympic Games as a member of the U.S. Women's Hockey Team, winning a gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics, in Nagano. Ruggiero has since served on the International Olympic Committee and the U.S. Olympic Committee, and helped to organize Los Angeles's successful bid to host the 2028 summer games. She joins the New Yorker staff writer Louisa Thomas to discuss the challenges in Tokyo and what these Games could mean for the future of the Olympics.

People love the Olympics. But this year's Games, which open on Friday, are plagued with controversial suspensions and public pushback, not to mention the pandemic. How did we get here?That's a question for Dick Pound. He's a member of the International Olympic Committee and was the founding president of the World Anti-Doping Agency. In this conversation, Kara Swisher asks Pound to break down the I.O.C.'s decision to move forward with the Games as the Delta variant of the coronavirus threatens to surge, vaccination rates trickle and citizens of the host country express concerns about the event. She presses him on who he thinks should take responsibility if an outbreak happens. (Hint: He doesn't think it's the I.O.C.)They also discuss American track star Sha'Carri Richardson's recent one-month suspension after testing positive for marijuana and whether WADA's policies on weed need to change.You can find transcripts (posted midday) and more information for all episodes at nytimes.com/sway, and you can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher.

Breaking, also known as break-dancing, borne in New York City in the 1970s, is set to make its debut at the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024. Four-time breaking world champion, BoxWon (Benyaamin Barnes McGee), traces how breaking went from Bronx block parties to NYC's downtown art scene, to the world. Speaking to legends of the scene, such as Rock Steady Crew's Ken Swift and B-Boy Glyde from Dynamic Rockers, BoxWon reveals how punk impresario, Malcolm McLaren, helped breaking become a worldwide craze in the 1980s - before it vanished. When the International Olympic Committee proposed breaking as a new sport for the Olympic Games in Paris 2024, the general public were taken by surprise.
