All of our TKFLASTANIS are very dear to us, but Citizen #1 will have a special place in our hearts. Bobsledder Josh Williamson, winner of the first season of Team USA's "The Next Olympic Hopeful" was our first interviewee, and now he returns, on the cusp of fulfilling his "Next Olympic Hopeful" goals and making it to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. We catch up with Josh and learn how he's approaching this season, what it's like to become a veteran in the sport, and what the bobsled track at Beijing is like (POV video here). Follow Josh on Twitter and Insta In our history moment on Atlanta 1996, Alison dives into maybe the most controversial phrase that came out of Juan Antonio Samaranch's mouth during the Games. Also on tap, we've got news from TKFLASTAN, including updates on Evan Dunfee, Dawn Harper Nelson, Connor Fields and Stephanie Roble. In our Beijing 2022 update, the Olympic Flame is officially lit and has traveled to Beijing, though not without controversy. The Torch Relay, of which there are few details, includes the inspiring slogan "Health, Joy and Energy." Alison is not impressed by Jill's attempts to spruce that up. And we have news from Milan-Cortina 2026, in which we are completely unsurprised to learn of venue changes due to cost containment needs. The Games aren't even for another 4+ years, but maybe it's a good thing that they've figured this out now. Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!

We're talking to Tim Don—the Olympian and former Ironman world record holder is maybe best known these days as "the man with the halo," after breaking his neck when he was hit by a car in Kona and spending months in a halo device that was screwed into his skull and held his neck in place. He came back from that to run the Boston Marathon and race Kona. Now we talk about all the things he's involved in: serving as a team captain for Super League, a back-up guide for the Paralympics, and don't count him out yet at the age of 43, he's training in the UK rain and getting ready for next year's races. He's also a dad and his kids interrupt us a couple times, because they want to play!

In episode 81, Zion Clark, Athlete and Motivational Speaker, joins us. Specifically Zion will be looking at: Importance of sport Obstacles in training/competition Case study: typical training day Examples of how Sport Science helps him About Zion "Zion was born on September 29, 1997 in Columbus, OH. Due to his condition (Caudal Regression Syndrome...born with no legs), and his birth mother's inability to care for him, Zion was immediately thrust into the foster care system. Thus, his journey to find a permanent home and a someone to call "mom" began. Over the course of the next 16 years Zion moved numerous times and found himself in a variety of circumstances and environments...many of them unfavorable. Zion was introduced to the sport of wrestling while in elementary school, but initially didn't fare very well...in fact, he didn't win a match for several years. Upon entering Massillon High School, Zion met Coach Gil Donahue who recognized his passion for the sport and relentless work ethic. A wonderful friendship and bond was forged. Over the next 3 years Zion improved his wrestling technique and hit the weight room like a man possessed. An amazing transformation followed! Part of this miraculous course of events included Zion being adopted by a woman who had been praying for a son for years! In dramatic fashion, the process was completed only within days before Zion was officially scheduled to be legally aged-out (no chance of adoption). In his senior year, Zion finished the season 33-15 and was one match from qualifying for the D-I Ohio High School State Wrestling Championships. In an incredible display of heart and determination, Zion wrestled his opponent (a 20 pd. weight differential) beyond the grueling 6 minutes of regulation and 2 overtimes...only to fall 1-0 in sudden death. The fans in the packed gymnasium rose to their feet and zealously applauded Zion's courageous effort. A few months later Zion went on to capture his second high school track wheel chair racing title at the state championships. Zion's herculean efforts hadn't gone unnoticed as a Hollywood producer documented his journey during senior year. The film "Zion" garnered critical acclaim at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival (2018) and global media exposure (it's currently available on Netflix). Zion was recruited by several colleges to wrestle and chose to attend Kent State (Tuscarawas)...where he spent the following 2 years steadily improving his skills and finding success at the varsity level. With his confidence and national ranking on the rise, Zion decided to embark on his toughest mission to date...becoming the first American Athlete to compete in both the Olympic (wrestling) and Paralympic (wheelchair racing) Games in Tokyo (2020). Understanding the magnitude of this difficult challenge, Zion has surrounded himself with a very dedicated and highly supportive team...including budding friendships with Olympic/World Champion Jordan Burroughs and undefeated (133-0) 4x NCAA titlist Joey Davis. Due to his tremendous upper body strength and athleticism, Zion is also pursuing interests in power lifting (bench press), wheelchair bodybuilding, and the circus arts. In addition to his brutal training/practice regimen, Zion stays busy as a motivational speaker. The moral of Zion's inspirational story is that things don't always go smoothly in life...but in order to succeed, you must adapt to your individual circumstances. Priding himself in hard work, Zion offers that there are no excuses...or shortcuts! It's all about faith, passion, and perseverance. Zion urges others to "Be Greater Than" > ...the obstacles you face. YOU, and only YOU are in control of your destiny!"

I learned of Blake through the mailing list of the maker of my rowing machine, Concept2. Their piece on him described him as a Paralympic bound athlete. I was impressed, but only thought of him as a potential guest on watching his TEDx talk.I think my message to his agent describes what I saw in him and when we talked about in this episode:In Blake's case, I heard a message I've never heard with such clarity and experience I wonder if he realizes how much it applies to stewardship and the environment. It's almost the exact message nearly everyone needs. I can't put it as well as he can, but what he shared starting around minute 3 of his TEDx talk of a system breaking down, where most people would be ready to give up, technology being important, but relationships, faith, support, and laughter being the core of what worked.I see roughly 350 million Americans and 7.9 billion humans ready to give in and accept a system breaking down. Then I see Blake living the opposite of their resignation leading to a better life, and there's been almost a decade since leading to what I read as yet more improvement.In my book coming out next year, I quote Churchill's speeches during the blitz -- that it's bad, it will get worse, but we will fight on the beaches, we will never surrender, it will be our finest hour. I heard in Blake's message from a decade ago what America and the world would benefit most from hearing today. I expect it's stronger today.Since he also just won a silver medal, I also ask him about the training and competing.Blake's TEDx talk, The Advantage of Adversity See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Delighted to have 2x Paralympic Bronze medalist Samantha Bosco join us to share her life story of overcoming numerous obstacles in order to reach her dreams.  It is great to have professional athletes join the show so we can get more literal examples of the “athlete mindset”, but so much of Sam's story sheds light on the trying times athletes deal with, which is just as valuable as hearing about the successes. I believe athletes are at their most relatable when they open up about their hardships as we all encounter similar scenarios within our non-athletic careers Sam provides perspective on the need to make sure our dreams are able to evolve and adapt to the situations life hands us. Nothing about Sam's story demonstrates a loss of ambition, in fact I'd argue her adversities have made her more ambitious, but it is healthy to allow your dreams to evolve with these ups and downs. In addition, we are educated on the impact a strong support system can have from those we need to rely upon when the going gets tough, and the importance to prioritize these peoples opinions most and ignore distractions from those that don't know you as well.

Nate Riech came into his first Paralympics under a burden of heavy expectation. Not just because his family tree is overstuffed with elite and pro athletes. Riech owns the world record in the T38 1500m. He set it, and then lowered it, in the months leading up to Tokyo. So he was confident and ready to race when the gold medal day dawned. But that's where the going got interesting.... As an athlete enduring traumatic brain injury, Nate has learned to roll with a variety of symptoms. But even he was a bit freaked out to discover his right leg was suddenly not working properly during race day warm up. Incredibly, he and his coach had a backup plan for just such an outcome: he ran a series of short sprints designed to reboot his unpredictable nervous system. It worked. He's sporting the gold now. And hungrier than ever to keep tearing up the record books, keep showing the world what determined people with TBIs can do, and keep inspiring anybody, who like himself, woke up one fateful day,young and motionless in a hospital bed. The term is overused, but Nate Riech is an inspiration, and a fascinating young runner to get to know on this week's Player's Own Voice.

53. Kyle Coon - Accessible Voices “There's always a path forward. There's never a wall that you come to and it's just impossible to get through. If you can't go straight through, the obstacle or barrier in your way, then there's a way around it, or maybe, you just have to climb up and over it."    Guest Info: Kyle Coon lost his sight at the age of six  after a battle with Retinoblastoma—cancer of the eye. However, not having sight has not stopped him from pursuing vision. Since then he has become a competitive rock climber, downhill skier, runner and triathlete. As a young child, Kyle was shown how to embrace his adversity by world-class blind athlete Erik Weihenmayer who encouraged him to live life to the fullest. Kyle took Weihenmayer's advice to heart and began pursuing a life of adventure. In 2006, he hiked the Ankascocha Trail into Machu Picchu. In 2007, he summited Mt. Kilimanjaro at the age of 15. After graduating from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Communication, he became an endurance athlete competing in numerous marathons and triathlons. In 2018, he was a member of the first team of tandem cyclists with all blind or visually impaired stokers (person on the back of a tandem bike) to complete Race Across America—the world's toughest bicycle race—racing from Oceanside, Calif to Annapolis, Md in seven days 15 hours. Later in 2018, at Ironman Arizona, Kyle became the first totally blind person to complete an Ironman branded Triathlon (2.4 mi swim, 112 mi bike, 26.2 mi run) in under 11 hours. He continues to push himself physically and mentally as he now pursues his goal of representing the USA at the 2020 Paralympics in the sport of Triathlon. As a young man, Kyle has spoken to major organizations about his adversity and triumphs including various Rotary Clubs in Florida and Taiwan, the International Association of Refrigerated Warehousing, and The American Cancer Society. He has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and in Backpacker and Triathlete magazines. Losing sight has only served as a base for Kyle's ability to master his ambitions despite his inability to see them. Inspiring those with similar challenges and sharing a few laughs along the way has become his trademark. Drawing upon his experiences as a totally blind person and adventure athlete, he demonstrates the importance of vision, commitment and courage to pursuing an “Eyeronvision” and embracing the adversity along our life's journey. While he wasn't the first blind person to climb a mountain, run a marathon or compete in a triathlon, his goal is to be one of the best and ensure he isn't the last.   Favorite Quote: "Make good choices." — Ann Marie Coon "It's our attitude that allows us to learn from mistakes and that in turn enables one to be great beyond imagination." — Steve Coon R.O.G. Takeaway Tips: Accomplishing can feel like a "false summit". Achieve your goal. Enjoy the view. Set your sights on the next one to stay motivated. We all can have vision that isn't quantified by sight. Honor your vision. Embrace it. Be relentless in pursuit of your vision. Prioritize and give your best energy to the actions that lead you toward the realization of it. Make good choices. Make good choices. What are you willing to stop doing? What are will you start doing? What will you continue doing?  Resources: KyleCoon.com Kyle on Facebook (KyleCoonSpeaks) Kyle on Twitter (@Kyle_Coon) Kyle on Instagram (@EyeronKyle) "Discovering a Life Without Limits" by Kyle Coon Team USA - Kyle Coon NoBarriersUSA.org JAN - Job Accommodation Network NoBarriersUSA.org Kyle's profile on TeamUSA.org Kyle's Interview in Trail Runner Magazine Kyle on USA Today - "Athletes with visual impairments, blindness bike across America to inspire others" Orlando Sentinel - "Blind triathlete from Orlando prepares for first Ironman" Kyle's Interview with Orlando Sentinel Central Florida's News13's - "Blind climber inspires others to overcome obstacles" ABC Nightline's story on "Global Explorer's Leading the Way Program" ABC World News' "Person of the Week - Erik Weihenmayer" (leader of Kyle's first international hiking trip) Denver's 9 News - "Blind Colorado athlete sets Ironman record" Credits: Kyle Coon, Sheep Jam Productions, Host Shannon Cassidy

For today's show it's the irrepresible Chris Skelley. Only a couple of months ago he won Judo gold in the visually impared under 100kg category at the Paralympics in Tokyo. He's also a European and World Champion. Chris grew up playing rugby and competing in Judo from the age of five, but in his teenage years his sight began to suffer due to Ocular Albinism and that led to a huge change in his life, in every area. We talk about that and how it's fuelled his positivity and fashioned the path he's on now. Styles of learning, understanding the individual, trust between coach and athlete all crop up in what both turned out to be a heart-warming, inspiring and light-hearted conversation and we started by talking about the aftermath of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Chris missing out on a podium finish and how that threw even more coals on his fire of further development.

James Roberts is a living testimony that disability is not inability. James has been fortunate enough over the years to have represented Great Britain at countless World Championships and 2 Paralympics Games (Beijing 2008 and London 2012), to name a few. In this episode, James will share his sporting and coaching journey with us. Also, he will give us a taste of his thought-provoking perspective.  Listen into this episode as James tells us how he has managed to rise above the odds. Getting to Know James Robert Better  James was born with a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia, a floating hip of the left leg, and scoliosis of the spine. He grew up on a NATO base in S.H.A.P.E (Casteau), Belgium, but resides back in Prestatyn, North Wales. He is a transformation coach by trade, but he was an elite Paralympic athlete for just over a decade. How James transitioned from Swimming to other sports James transitioned to rowing after being dropped from GB swimming programmes and went into rowing in 2006.

Nobody wants to have the same thing.” “It's okay to go backwards to learn from that as opposed to being nostalgic.” “You can learn from things in the past, but don't live in it.” “Every athlete wants to go out on the nice shining horse and ride off into the sunset.” “We're kind of seeing where people have let things slip and are not taking care of themselves.

Siale's life was saved by the doctors who had operated on him right away, and the subsequent surgeries did not guarantee that he would be able to walk again unassisted. But not only did Siale overcome the dire outlook in his life, he decided to push forward and set a current goal of being a part of the Paralympics. His goals are to either participate or continue coaching as he's been a force for a lot of other paralympians. Incredible and inspiring story.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for September 24th, 2021. A CDC advisory panel recommended a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine for Americans 65 and older and some adults with underlying medical conditions that put them at risk of severe disease. What it declined to do was recommend boosters for younger adults, including healthcare workers, who live or work in places with high risk of contracting COVID-19. Boy we hope this is true. The creator of the AstraZeneca vaccine says COVID-19 is unlikely to mutate into a deadlier variant and will eventually end up like the common cold. Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert said viruses tend to “become less virulent as they circulate” through the population. She also points out we already live with four different human coronaviruses and this one will become just another. No choice this time. All Team USA athletes and staff will need to be fully vaccinated to compete at the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Beijing that kick off in February 2022. Proof must be submitted by December 1 and the Olympic Committee added booster shots “may be required in the future.” England's Covid travel rules aren't exactly winning raves. The country is refusing to recognize vaccines administered across Latin America, Africa, and south Asia. Critics call it illogical and discriminatory. Those without recognized vaccines will be considered “not fully vaccinated” and made to quarantine 10 days on arrival from amber list countries. It was a joke. “Hey maybe some people will hold COVID parties to deliberately infect themselves like people used to do for their kids with chicken pox.” But now it's not a joke, because a group of people in Alberta, Canada actually did it. Well, it worked, several attendees are now in the hospital, some in ICU.
