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!

The Canon EOS R3 looks to be a beast of a camera. Like so many others, I want this camera, and like 99% of those people I won't be buying one. Why? Because the Canon EOS R3 is for people like Jeff Cable. Ok, also because it's more than I can afford for what I shoot, and yes, I would buy it in an instant if I could, but for now I am sticking with the not buying it. So, why do I say it's for people like Jeff Cable? Jeff is the market this camera is made for. I won't go through all the specs here, but let's just say that when you are photographing the Olympics for Team USA you cant miss the shot. We knew Jeff was using an R3 at the Olympics, it was semi-public knowledge. Plus, Jeff was posting images to his blog and Instagram, and as DPReview mentioned here, some Canon Rumors forum members checked Jeff's meta data where they saw was something that had not been revealed by Canon, that the R3 was 24MP. When I saw Jeff mention on Instagram that he was shooting at the Olympics at 30 fps my brain stopped for a moment. That instantly meant he was using the electronic shutter... FOR SPORTS. This has usually be something to avoid due to rolling shutter effect. If you are not familiar with that issue, here's a great video by the legend David Bergman on his Ask David Bergman: Mechanical vs Electronic Shutter. I asked Jeff in an Instagram comment about using electronic shutter for sports, and his response was a cryptic "it depends what body" he is using. Ah Ha! The R3 solved the issue! It has a fast enough read speed to shoot 30fps for action, and that is amazing. I asked Jeff that day if he might be willing to come back on the show - he was on before on the episode Capture the Action - to talk about his real world experiences with this new Canon R3. Luckily he said yes, and he even wrote a blog post about it too: Finally - my real world review of the new Canon R3 camera! Now that we have the idea where this show might go, let me introduce you to my friend Jeff Cable... Photographing the Olympics has got to be the pinnacle of a sports photographer's career, and for Jeff Cable it's one he's reached many times, having photographed the last 7 Olympics for Team USA. I am always amazed by how many photographers either come from, or are in some way involved with, the tech industry. For more than 25 years, Jeff was a marketing executive at companies like Symantec, Magellan, and Micron, but while traveling the world for his corporate job, his interest and passion for photography grew quickly. He left the corporate world in 2016 to dedicate himself full-time to his photography. Since then, Jeff has earned respect around the globe for his creative images, and for sharing his love of photography with others. He's best known for capturing photos for the US Olympic Committee, photographing the last six Olympic games, in Beijing, Vancouver, London, Sochi, Rio de Janeiro, and PyeongChang. As an educator, Jeff also leads photo tours where he teaches photo enthusiasts and professionals around the world. He has taught in Africa, Australia, China, Europe, Central and South America, and across the United States. He is one of the most watched and respected instructors of photography, with millions of views of his free online photography classes. Join me as I chat with Jeff Cable, one of the most accomplished sports photographers working today, about his real world experience at this year's Olympics with a pre-production Canon EOS R3, on this episode of Behind the Shot.

LMNT has become a staple in my own training and something we are excited to offer to our coaches and student-athletes as well.

So, we always go to what are we telling ourselves? Because what we think about most becomes our reality and what we think about, we move towards what we think about most.[00:07:27] Situations happen every day, but we do get to control how we think about it.[00:08:20] Our thoughts lead to our emotions and how we feel.[00:08:52] Feelings lead to actions.We take action or not. Inaction is also an action.[00:09:32] We get our results in life based on the action that we take or don't take.[00:11:43] Let your actions drive your emotions, not the other way around.[00:12:28] What are the thoughts right now today that are like running around in your head? Get them out and decide which ones you want to keep decide, which ones you're like, okay, that's ridiculous. Why am I even thinking that, get rid of that? And which ones are you going to change to be more productive?[00:12:43] Productive thinking is more important than positive thinking.[00:17:25] Just stopping all physical and working on mental isn't the only way that you can do mental training.[00:18:14] They shank a pass in that moment mentally, they're taking a breath, they're saying the reset word, the focusing on what they want to see for the next one. So, they're practicing a mental skill right there.[00:19:07] Two clap. You mess up, clap frustration, clap to energize.[00:19:42] It's one breath, a reset word, and a gesture of their choice.[00:20:45] Every water break, you're going to do your mistake ritual. So that, it's something that your body knows to respond to.[00:23:39] Today, we're going to write down 10 things that you're proud of and athletes struggle with that…think about things in your life that you're proud of to remind yourself what you're capable of.[00:24:25] We're talking about like the three things that we did well that we want to repeat, and the one thing that we're going to work on and an action plan to improve it, not I'm just going to beat myself up about it.[00:24:45] Habit reshaping has a hundred percent failure rate when you try to work on more than one at a time. That's what the research says.[00:28:20] What do you see? What do you smell? What does it feel like? What feelings are going on? We want to create that picture with as much detail as you can.[00:30:02] The athletes that aren't able to trust that they have a way to recover either, through visualization, through having a mistake ritual, they just don't ever perform to the level that we as coaches know they could.[00:32:20] Stay in the moment and repeat the moment based on what the circumstance calls for, not your fear of failure.[00:34:31]If you have strong female coaches and strong leaders It's not as celebrated as much, and we're told some, dial it down a little bit and don't go there and constantly even to the point where like we're not offered opportunities in the same way.[00:34:45]We really want to make sure that females are learning how to step into their authentic selves and learning how to be leaders that embrace just who they are.[00:35:45]Don't apologize for being competitive. Don't apologize for the way in which you show up, even though society is telling you differently.

Show Notes:If you could sit down with someone who's played professionally in two different sports, what would you want to ask them about success? Maybe it's how they did it. Maybe it's the biggest struggles they went through. Maybe it's the attributes they've seen in the most successful in their sports. Or maybe you ask about stuff that most people don't see. On the show today we talk about all these things and more with our guest and learn just what it takes to become pro at two different sports.Paul Lasike is a New Zealand-born, USA international rugby player who currently plays professional rugby for the Harlequins Rugby club in the English Premiership League. Prior to joining the Harlequins, Paul played rugby for Team-USA and the Utah Warriors. Paul was the centre of Team USA's historic 30-29 victory over Scotland in 2018 – the country's first major win over a Tier One nation. He represented USA at the Rugby World Cup in Japan starting all four pool stage matches. Prior to his professional rugby career, Paul played running back and full-back for the Arizona Cardinals and later the Chicago Bears. Paul attended Brigham Young University and played both rugby and then football once NFL scouts came knocking. Paul is a dedicated husband and father, one of 10 children in an ethnic Tongan family, and his talents stretch beyond the sports field as he is also a talented musician. On the show today we discuss the following:Who is Paul and what does he do (4:10)Lessons learned from sports as a kid that continue to impact him today (11:29)Traits of those who play sports at the highest levels: obsession (20:38)Traits of those who play sports at the highest levels: confidence/ego (28:38)Life as a pro-athlete with a young family (39:53)What does it mean to him to be a Contender (50:46)How to learn more about Paul:Paul's Facebook PagePaul's Instagram PageTeam USA Rugby BioHarlequin Rugby BioAdditional Books, Individuals, or Items Discuss in the show:The USA vs. Scotland game (Full Match)The Chimp ParadoxHighland High School Rugby and Coach GelwixContact the Host: email@example.comGiveaway: Sometime before the next episode is released, leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts and screen shot it.

What's New in the 303: Deb Connelly, Running Hall of Fame, Denver Athletic Club Deb Conley started running for the first time the summer before attending the University of Colorado at Boulder. She ran just to run with a new boyfriend. Like three miles. A couple of months later she walked on to CU's cross country team and has been running ever since. And just recently, she was inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Wow. She never played sports growing up, never ran, never did anything but work and go to school. In this video interview, Deb expresses a surprised happiness after being selected for the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. But she also shares something vulnerable; how running in college was the first time she ever experienced feeling truly happy. Whats not really discussed, is the rocky and almost impossible path she took to get here. If you knew Deb in high school you probably would never have foreseen her making the Colorado Running H.O.A. But like 99% of her classmates, I had no idea how hard her life was until we reconvened about this honor almost 40 years later. My high school experience differed greatly from Deb's even though we both went to Wheat Ridge and graduated in 1983. I played sports, didn't work, had a car, stayed busy with practices and homework and hanging out with friends. Admittedly, I led the “Leave it Beaver” lifestyle (yes I'm dating myself), like a good chunk of my fellow “Farmers” (our mascot). Deb, living just a few miles away lived in poverty. Her mom forged her birth certificate when she was 13 so she could work. Her bed was an old army cot. They had no refrigerator and the house was in disrepair. Her parents didn't want her to go to college but rather help with the other kids. There was no modeling of “success” or “ambition” in her home. Yet she excelled at school and knew she had to figure out a way to go to college. She admittedly didn't understand true happiness and felt lonely. Her friend and fellow classmate, Chris Tomlinson, one of the few who knew of Deb's tough childhood said, “she was very smart, but seemed anxious and isolated. It seemed touch and go for her.” Wendy Koenig A middle distance runner, Wendy Koenig competed seven times for the United States in international dual meets. She was a three-time AIAW Champion, in 1975 in the 880 yards, and in 1976 at both 800 and 1,500 metres. Koenig also won three AAU titles, outdoors in the 1973 880 and in 1976 in the 1,500, and indoors in the 1979 800. On 24 March 1973, she set one of the very early world records for the 400 hurdles with 59.08, the first woman to run the event under one minute. Koenig ran for Colorado State University, and competed at the 1972 Olympics as Wendy Koenig and the 1976 Olympics as Wendy Knudson. Personal Bests: 440y – 54.60 (1975); 800 – 1:59.91 (1976); 1500 – 4:21.80 (1976); Mile – 4:47.7i (1976); 3000 – 9:49.0 (1976); 2 Miles – 10:34.0 (1976); 100H – 14.8 (1971); 400H – 59.08 (1973); HJ – 5-5 [1.65] (1974); LJ – 19-10¾i [6.06] (1979); Pen - 4167 (1971). Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau. The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins. Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins. The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel. Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away. The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision. The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.” Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.” The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.

The NHL is back, and Scott Burnside and Mike McKenna give your their reaction to the action on the ice for episode two of The Suitcase & The Scribe! The Kraken almost gave the Golden Knights a scare in their first game in the National Hockey League, while the Pittsburgh Penguins disrupted Tampa Bay's banner party on the road. They also dove into some of the big names missing around the league and what kind of impact that'll have on a locker room, especially in Ottawa, where Brady Tkachuk is still without a contract. They continued that conversation into how important it is to get players and coaches under a new deal before the season begins to avoid distractions. Later on, in the show, Minnesota Wild General Manager Bill Guerin joined Scott and Mike. They talked about Dean Evason, the dynamics of an NHL locker room, and Team USA.

Why don't you see that? Like, why don't you believe in yourself at the same way that I do? And I'm like, gosh, I'm seeing a mirror of myself right here in high school.[00:08:16] Kids are the same everywhere. And I need to figure out this mental side of it.[00:08:36] How can we help equip athletes with the skills to perform under pressure, to believe in themselves, to come back from mistakes and not let one mistake turned into three, four or five.[00:08:47] Helping female athletes, cultivate confidence and mental skills in themselves, on the court and off the court.[00:11:19] The thing that was holding me back wasn't that I didn't love the sport, it was the pressure that I was putting on myself.[00:14:21] We think, I've played at a high level. Like it should just come naturally. Coaching should come naturally, and it doesn't.[00:16:15] Every kid is different and I need to meet them where they are.[00:17:10] We have to work harder to create this program of like unity and pride that people don't want to leave and want to come to you.[00:19:03] Equipping athletes with the mental skills and the confidence that they need to perform well in their sport.Because if athletes can do that individually, so they develop that deep sense of belief in themselves. So, they trust themselves, they have the skills to overcome mistakes, challenges, failures, they know how to properly prepare for a match and deal with those nerves and play well. If they take care of that, our whole program is going to be strong.[00:20:27] When I was athlete, I was like, am I the only one that feels this like enormous pressure? Am I the only one that gets like so nervous before a game that like, I feel like I could throw up? Am I the only one that feels like, if I make a mistake, I'm going to let everyone down?[00:23:03] He just greatly influences his athletes just by the energy that he brings to practice.[00:23:24] He's like all about like just, celebrating his athletes and focusing on the good which we know is important.[00:23:44]As coaches, we have an enormous impact on the energy and how our players perform and just in how we show up.[00:24:30] You can control the energy in your space. You are responsible for that. That's a controllable aspect, right? Versus some of these other things that may not be, right?[00:28:00] I don't want to say oh, I've just come become more soft, but I think for me, I've become a lot more understanding empathetic of like where players are coming from and like that they have so much on their plates.[00:29:25] Coach, you're soft. And it's no, I've actually learned to listen to my athletes, which I didn't have that skill when I was coaching you. And I'm sorry.[00:34:08] When I started the business, it was like this almost like imposter syndrome. Should I be doing this? This is in alignment with what I'm doing, but it's a little different, what are people going to think differently of me?[00:34:24] If something is moving in a direction that you don't like, you can change it.And that's okay. And that's part of life and you don't have to stay stuck in something either that, isn't serving you at the moment and that there's like seasons in life.[00:35:29] There are seasons and you can change your mind. And it doesn't mean you're a hypocrite. It means that you've reevaluated and here's what's important now, even though this used to be what made sense.

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?

And it's really hard because you sometimes want it more than they do.[00:07:25] Is what motivates one person doesn't motivate another person.[00:10:32] I always have the best interests of the student athletes at my core. And I think that coaches need to have that too.[00:11:15] We are in a service industry. We're trying to help these young men and young women.[00:14:52] There's no better representation on the road than athletes because those are the ones who are on the road. And not to say that the band and the chorus isn't important, it certainly is. But on an everyday experience, you're going to see athletes more in the community and how they get off the bus is really representative of the school.[00:16:34] The most important thing that the we can do as educators is develop these young men and young women to become better human beings when they walk out the door.[00:18:22] The most successful coaches I know are the ones that when the practice is over and you blow that final whistle, kids are like, we're over already? That went so quickly. That means I had a great time.[00:20:10] Adolescents at the teenage years, which is who we're coaching here, they have about a 15 minutes window where you're going to have their attention.[00:21:34] I've also sought to find more moral victories in the games than I used to.[00:22:23] The definition of success is going to change based on where you are, what resources you have what other circumstances are in the equation and the recipe.[00:24:04] I have a rule, Justin, that if you've ever played lacrosse for me, I'm indebted to you for the rest of your life.Whatever you need, you just make a phone call and if I can physically do it, it's going to be done.[00:27:29] I got to relearn what this institution prioritizes over my previous two stops and whether or not to your point, I'm a fit, and can I become one versus faking it or trying to fit in somewhere where it's not going to work out long-term.[00:29:37] Fun and success are not mutually exclusive.[00:30:08] We all got into sports because we had fun with it at the core. We're all little, children's still wanting to have fun. You will play in the playground. I was playing the sandpit and now we've evolved to the court or the field. You have to make sure that person that started with whatever sport it is, did it for fun that it still remains fun at some level.[00:31:05] Those athletes that you are coaching and creating a culture with and setting core values with, they end up co-parenting your children, right? And they're instilling those values in a trickle down. So, whatever you allow to happen in that team and in that program, your own children are seeing that and learning from that.[00:34:59] You're going to have peaks and valleys, and you're never going to be in either one for too long. So don't get too down on yourself and don't get to a higher yourself because before you know it, you're dropping down or you're rising up.[00:39:11] I hustled and hustling is a skill. It's not, God-given, it's a skill. And so, as a coach, just as you want the kids to hustle, you got to hustle too.Hustling is a skill like anything else.

It was hard to watch the Olympics in Tokyo and not know who Raven Saunders is. The Team USA athlete wore a collections of masks while competing that were inspired by Marvel Comics characters like the Hulk, and twerked in celebration after completing her final throw in the shotput. After clinching a silver medal, she crossed her arms in an X on the podium to represent the ‘intersection of where all people who are oppressed meet' – and has used her platform to talk frankly about her own experiences of poor mental health, and her pride in being a black, gay woman. So, we really were spoiled for choice when it came to this conversation, which touches on all those things and so, so much more. We really think this chat will stick with you for a long time, and we're so grateful Raven made the time for it. WANT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR GUEST?

“That was the moment where I remember being like, ‘Oh, I'm not done yet.' Like I know there's more. It finally hit me, ‘If you just continue on, you have no idea where your ceiling is.' So at that point, I just wanted to see how far I could go.” This summer, Erika Kemp — like so many professional runners — had one really, really, really big goal race. Since going pro in 2018 and signing with the Boston Athletic Association and adidas, Erika knew she would want to compete at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials in hopes of making her Team USA debut. When it came time to race the 5K at Hayward Field, Erika made it through the first round and advanced to the finals. But ultimately, she finished last that day, and didn't make the 2020 Olympic team. But! Erika has gone on to have an incredible season since then. On this episode, Erika talks about her physical and emotional recovery from the Trials, and explains her motivation for continuing to race throughout the year. Since the Trials, Erika won the USATF New England 5-mile championships, won the U.S. 20K championships at the New Haven Road Race (it was her debut at that distance, and it earned her a second national title), won the Cow Harbor 10K (and ran a personal best), and finished fourth at the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K the following weekend. This girl is on fire, and on this episode, she talks about how she fell in love with running — and how she stays in love with it. SPONSOR: UCAN.
