Keep the Flame Alive

Aug 5, 2021

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are starting to wind down, but our TKFLASTANIs in competition are just starting to heat up!

Along with results for the day's 21-sport program, we are also very concerned about the age of some women (really girls) competing in diving and skateboarding. And we interrupt our results for a major rant about NBC's coverage and programming decisions, spurred   when the feed cut out on the men's bronze medal hockey game with about five minutes to go.

Today's sports program includes:

  • Athletics
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Beach Volleyball
  • Boxing
  • Canoe Sprint
  • Cycling - Track
  • Diving
  • Football
  • Golf
  • Handball
  • Hockey
  • Karate
  • Marathon Swimming
  • Modern Pentathlon
  • Skateboarding
  • Sport Climbing
  • Table Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo
  • Wrestling.

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!
