Welcome to Jaytalking, edition 16!
The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team is perhaps the only women’s sports team that has a series of “where where you when this happened” moments in their history. Kirsten Timmer, one of Good Karma’s own who played soccer at Marquette University, shares her memories while diving into the 2019 World Cup.
Plus, Denver decides that if the Olympic will ever happen in their city, they will get to directly decide on it. Olympics reporter Aaron Bauer dives into that and the state of the IOC.
Finally, two poignant stories about cancer and the Olympics – one from the passing of runner Gabriele Grunewald this week, the other of Wisconsin’s own Dan Jansen and his tragic and triumphant story which he shared at the Vince Lombardi Classic. He has started his own efforts with the Dan Jansen Foundation as well, with a major event this year in Milwaukee.
