The Podium: An NBC Olympics podcast. Join us for insider coverage during the 17 intense days of competition at the 2020 Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo. In the run-up to the opening ceremony, we’ll bring you deep into the stories and events that have defined the Olympics and those that will shape the Tokyo Olympics, plus an intimate look into the unseen details that only the athletes themselves can tell.
While participants at these Olympics are well-versed in guidelines, mother nature follows no such plans. As tropical storm Nepartak threatened to strengthen into a Typhoon and make landfall on July 27th, organizers and athletes began treating the weather as more than small talk.
We connected with surfers to see how a disruptive force for other events gave their final day of competition a boost. Katie Zaferes also joins The Podium to explain how managing temperature earned her an Olympic medal.
Listen to The Podium daily during the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games for new insight into the stories you know and the ones you’ll be happy to discover.
