The 2022 Winter Olympics are right around the corner, so to prepare we are bringing you a conversation with skier Lindsey Vonn. Her new memoir, Rise, looks at her road to becoming a ski champion and Olympic medalist. Spoiler alert: it was not all sunshine and roses. Vonn told NPR's A Martinez that she's lucky she is wired in a way that makes negativity a driving force because she has seen the pressure and stress of being an Olympic athlete derail other people's careers.

The Ella brothers are synonymous with Australian rugby and especially the era in which the Wallabies and the "running rugby" style took over the rugby world. Glen Ella, the twin of Mark and older brother of Gary, lived and played through it all from that Invincible Schoolboy Tour of 1977/78 to the dominant Galloping Greens of Randwick in the 80s and then the highest honour of  playing for the Wallabies with his brothers.We talk to Glen about his thoughts on the state of rugby now in Australia, dissect that recent series loss to England and touch upon his friendship with current head coach and former Matraville High alumni Eddie Jones. Can attacking styles be dominant again in world rugby despite ever imposing defences? Is rugby at a critical juncture in Australia where the style of the game isn't as attractive a brand as it used to be? And did rugby in Australia miss a trick by not engaging more Indigenous athletes who now populate the AFL and NRL? An honest and engaging conversation with a former Wallaby who remains just as committed to the game as the day he was first introduced to it with his brothers at high school. Dig in!

He continues now with volunteering, cheerleading, announcing, and helping make it happen!

Luis is one of the very few Floridians to have their name drawn for this year's race. This journey covers 6 years of racing and 16 tickets! Luis has done races from the Long Haul 100, Javelina Jundred, Arkansas Traveler, to Bryce Canyon. Not a qualifier race, but also the Keys 100. He did awesome out there running a time of 26:28:58.

In our Albertville 1992 history moment, Alison found a competitor who went on to have some notoriety in life. A lot's been happening in TKFLASTAN too. We've got updates from: Andras Toro Evan Dunfee Ness Murby Michelle Carter DeAnna Price Mallory Comerford Nick Zaccardi Ginny Thrasher The Modern Penthathlonovela has an update too - and this is getting to be a very slick TV production, which is quite fitting for a telenovela-esque situation.

The good-sized forward who is a draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs burst onto the college hockey scene and was an offensive catalyst with his size and skill, playing a vital role in their Big Ten title and their run to the Frozen Four. He also skated for Team USA at the World Junior Championships and the Winter Olympics in his "spare time."

Achieving goals, whatever they may be, is never an overnight event. It takes time, dedication, and, most of all it takes resiliency. Once you have a dream and you want to make it happen, there is one thing you can do “Keep On Pushing.”In this episode, our guest is Devon Harris, Three Times Olympian & Member Of The Jamaican Bobsled Team That Inspired The Classic ‘80s Movie “Cool Runnings,” whom we know because he is part of The Mentor Project.He is sharing with us his story of how he went from growing up in the Kingston ghetto of Sunrise Drive in Olympic Gardens to traveling and experiencing the world thank to his military and athletic career; and how it went full circle back to his elementary school to inspire young kids that just like him may need that one dream and someone to tell them that it can become a reality.As kids, our imagination makes us see ourselves as extraordinary individuals, full of potential, and able to achieve our dreams. Still, reality and fears of taking the first steps can often get in the way. As adults, we must help kids dream and encourage them to go for it.We talk about this and much more in this fun and engaging conversation.Join us! About Devon HarrisBorn 1964, Devon Harris OLY is a Jamaican retired bobsledder and military officer. He was one of the founding members of the Jamaica national bobsled team, which first competed in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. Nicknamed "Pele" after the famous football star, Harris went on to compete in the 1992 Winter Olympics and the 1998 Winter Olympics.Harris grew up in the Kingston ghetto of Sunrise Drive in Olympic Gardens (known as "Waterhouse," or "Firehouse," because it was a volatile area). A graduate of Drews Ave Secondary School, Ardenne High School, and Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Harris had been an avid football player and track and field participant, with his dream being to represent Jamaica in the 1984 Summer Olympics in the 800m and 1500m events. Since the idea for a Jamaican Bobsled Team was pitched to the Jamaica Defence Force, Harris, as a lieutenant in the Second Battalion, first came across the proposal in a weekly army publication called "Force Orders" in September 1987. The text had called for those who wished to "undergo rigorous and dangerous training" to represent Jamaica in the Winter Olympics. Harris initially thought the idea was ridiculous, but was eventually convinced to participate by his colonel, Lt. Col Alan Douglas. At the team selections, Harris ended up with the fastest push time.Harris returned to the military after Calgary and later became a civilian in 1992 after his second Olympics in Albertville, France. He also competed in the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan. He now works as a motivational public speaker and writer.Harris wrote the 2008 children's book, Yes, I can! : the story of the Jamaican bobsled team, illustrated by Ricardo Cortes and in 2010 published his semi-autobiographical motivational book; Keep On Pushing: Hot Lessons From Cool RunningsIn 2006, Harris founded the Keep On Pushing Foundation which supports the education of kids in disadvantaged communitiesDuring the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, Devon was honored by the World Olympians Association and inducted as an Olympian For Life in recognition of the significant contribution he has made to society in inspiring other never to give up.About The Mentor ProjectThe Mentor Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our mentors are experts in science, technology, engineering, the arts, mathematics, business, and law. From developing a patent on how to use credit cards on the Internet to insights on space exploration and astronomy, to titans of industry and world-class technologists, TMP mentors share their skills and knowledge to inspire and guide their mentees._____________________________GuestDevon HarrisMotivational Speaker at Devon Harris & AssociatesOn LinkedIn | https://www.linkedin.com/in/keynotespeakerdevonharris/On Twitter | https://twitter.com/Keeponpushing88On YouTube | https://www.youtube.com/KEEPONPUSHINGALWAYSOn Facebook | https://www.facebook.com/keeppushingOn TikTok | https://www.tiktok.com/@kopbrandThe Mentor Project: https://mentorproject.org_____________________________This Episode's SponsorsBlue Lava: https://itspm.ag/blue-lava-w2qsNintex: https://itspm.ag/itspntweb_____________________________ResourcesMore about Devon Harris: https://www.Devonharris.com_____________________________For more podcast stories from Audio Signals: https://www.itspmagazine.com/audio-signalsTo hear more from The Mentor Project Series, visit: https://www.itspmagazine.com/the-mentor-project-podcastAre you interested in sponsoring an ITSPmagazine Channel?

This week's conversation is with Tara Lipinski, an internationally acclaimed figure skater who you might recognize from her performance at the 1998 Nagano Olympic games where – at age 15 – she became the youngest athlete to win an individual Gold Medal in the history of the Winter Games. Tara is also recognized as the youngest competitor to win the World Professional Figure Skating Championships in 1999 at age 17, and the youngest-ever inductee into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 2006.In the now 20+ years since her Olympic triumph, Tara has taken the same championship-style approach to her new role as a TV sports commentator for NBC and Universal Sports – she was the analyst for figure skating at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing - where her depth of technical knowledge – and more strikingly – her deep authentic nature – was gripping. Tara is an absolute legend and this conversation is about “the how” that sits underneath her uncommon commitment to become her very best … I can't wait for you to hear her insights, which hopefully will help you discover “that magic” - as she calls it. -----Please support our partners!We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support.
