It’s Not The Length Olympic Special brings you the big stories from the build up to the games.
Surfing debuts at Tokyo 2020(1) in a few weeks time, and we’ve recorded a special pod episode dedicated to all the things we love about the five ringed circus.
How Leon Glatzer blazed and epic qualification trail in El Salvador to represent ze Germans in Tokyo, and his homes and dreams for the games… assuming his efforts to stay on the right side of WADA pee pee collectors goes ok.
Away from surf, we take in Paul & Ben’s favourite Olympic memories.
From your Eric the Eels to your Michael Johnsons and your Cram, Coe & Ovetts and much, much between.
There’s even a run through of Paul’s very fave Olympic anthems: rousing anthems from the likes of Katy Perry, Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé and of course Whitney Houston… but who takes gold?
Also: What formats could liven up the surf event? Should it be a teams competition? Who going? Who isn’t and should be? Who is, but shouldn’t be?
Did Team GB kook it by not throwing wads of cash at Yolanda Hopkins Sequeira to surf for them?
There’s even an Olympic mascot themed quiz, where Ben tests Paul’s deep olympic memorabilia knowledge.
Plus: Igarashi streaking? Gilmore urine sample shame*?!?
