The Road to the 2020 Olympics w Adam Ondra
SEASON THREE: The Road to the 2020 Olympics with Adam Ondra, the 26-year-old Czech climber that is taking the world by storm. Although most people outside the climbing community have not heard his name, I guarantee that will change the moment he steps onto the stage at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
Adam Ondra is the man to beat and for a lot of reasons. Adam is the only person to have won both the lead and the bouldering world cup title in the same year. And he’s the only person to have climbed 5.15d.
Or flashed 5.15a. All while slaying V15 and 16’s.
Ondra is that formidable. Only a small handful of climbers can compete, except of course, in the discipline known as Speed Climbing, the third discipline in the combined format for the 2020 Olympics. If you ever wondered what it will take to win a Gold Medal, or what the Tomoa Skip in Speed happens to be, you are in for a treat.
Adam shares what he believes will be the winning recipe. “The most important event will come down to bouldering.”

The Road to 2020 Olympics w John Burgman of Climbing Magazine
SEASON THREE: The Road to 2020 Olympics w John Burgman
Podcast Host: Dan Goodwin
As most everyone has heard, there will be three disciplines featured as a 'Combined Sport' in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. Those three disciplines include speed climbing, bouldering, and lead.
Unfortunately, most people are confused as to the format and the process as of which the athletes will be chosen. Until I started digging deeper, I naively assumed every country would be represented, but as I quickly discovered, that isn’t necessarily the case. In fact, there is no guarantee that United States or any other major country will be represented.
How can that be when we have so many climbers climbing at such a high level? That’s a really good question. Well, you are about to find out. With me, I have John Burgman with Climbing magazine, who has been reporting on the World Cup Competition scene for as long as I can remember. So, I couldn’t think of anyone better to help us understand the format and how the athletes will be chosen.
1) How will athletes be chosen?
2)How many opportunities will athletes have to qualify?
3) How many athletes will be allowed to compete?
4) How many athletes per country and genre?
5) Does an athlete have to compete in all three disciplines?
6)How will the scores be computed?
7) How many Gold Medals will be awarded?
8) Who will be representing the USA Climbing Team?
9) What are their strengths and weaknesses?
10) Who will most likely make to the Olympics?

THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS RACE Featuring BRAD GOBRIGHT & JIM REYNOLDS w HANS FLORINE & JOHN LONG
THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS RACE!
Featuring Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds - the new record holders for the fastest time up The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California. Their time: 2 hrs, 19 mins, & 44 seconds - shaving the nearly 4 mins off the previous record held by Hans Florine (also on this show), and Alex Honnold.
In addition, we have a very special guest, the legendary John Long, who, along with Jim Birdwell and Billy Westbay, became the first team to ascend The Nose in a day - doing it just under 15 hours!
What's amazing about this feat, is that it happened in 1975, before the invention of spring-loaded camming devices, sticky rubber shoes, or ultralight ropes.
So you are in for a treat.
Not only do we talk about the history of the World's Most Dangerous Race, we talk about the extraordinary risk these climbers are taking, and what it will take to break the 2-hour barrier. As well as what happened to Quinn Brett, the super talented climber that was seriously injured while attempting to break the women's record she once held.
