Lighting the Way to Tokyo: The Power of the Torch

The Podium


The Olympic Torch’s potential to inspire in times of chaos only deepens its power in the extraordinary leadup to Tokyo 2020. We start a brand new season of The Podium grasping the power of the flame.  

Relive Janet Evans’ triumphant 1996 torch relay with Muhammad Ali, hear a first-hand account of Catriona LeMay-Doan’s very public cauldron malfunction and discover how a clown saved a closing ceremony.  

Join host Lauren Shehadi for season 2 of NBC Sports’ The Podium. Episode 1 guests: Tim Layden, Janet Evans, Ahmed Fareed, Catriona Lemay-Doan and Yves Dagenais.
