Our Athletes

It's my pleasure to be able to bring you the stories of current and former Olympic Athletes and Hopefuls about their story and path to the games. From Gold Medal Winners to unfortunate injuries, for the amount of blood, sweat, tears, effort, energy, and money Our Athletes put in on a daily basis to be the best in the world, the least we can do is learn more about what they endure. Trials and tribulations, short comings and over coming the odds, these are the stories of Our Athletes from their mouth to your ears.... Show More

Our first Rock Climber ever joins the show! Kyra Condie joins us to tell us what it's like for her and the rock climbing community to know that it is an Olympic sport for at least the 2020 Games and potentially further!


Kyra talks about growing up and why she loves rock climbing so much. She also talks about how she got into the sport living in Minnesota with very little mountains to think of. Kyra describes the multiple disciplines of rock climbing, how the sport will look in the Olympics, and how her training has changed since she learned the Olympic format. Kyra recently won an event that granted her the opportunity to climb for Team USA and we break down the semantics of what exactly that means.
