Day 17. It's the end of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. On this episode we look at the final day of competition, including the dramatic conclusion to the maranovela.

Today's coverage includes:

  • Athletics - men's marathon
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cycling - Track
  • Handball
  • Rhythmic Gymnastics
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo

Plus, our popular segments:

  • Where's Marnie McBean?
  • What Officiating/Volunteer Roles Would We Want?
  • Fantasy League/Brackets Update
  • What's Up with Mike and Maya?

We need your help! For the upcoming Winter Olympics and Paralympics in 2022, we'll have an on-the-ground presence. This will allow us to bring you an Olympics audio experience like no other. But getting to Beijing will be difficult, so we've got a Kickstarter campaign running to help get us there. Please check it out and support our efforts to bring you a better show. Thank you for your support!
