NO MORE TOKYO 2020

Via the IOC’s longest-serving member, Dick Pound, we learned that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been postponed. It’s been a long year this month, so Jessica has a list of Dick Pound jokes to get us through. It’s most of the episode. After that, we discuss

  • Why it was important to postpone
  • Gymnastics implications
    • Should the new 2021 seniors now become eligible for the Olympics?
    • What code of points should be used?
    • How should the unfinished qualification process be resolved?
    • What of the 2021 world championships in Copenhagen?
  • Which athletes are most affected by this, negatively and positively?
  • Plus, McKayla Maroney opens up about the circumstances of her father’s death and releases her debut single, a rundown of the dumpster fire news, Bart has an adult gymnastics challenge for you, and Full Out 2 has been released
