Have the Olympic Games been corrupted? It’s February 2022, the Beijing Olympics just concluded, and Americans are divided. My guest today is Noah Hoffman, a former two-time Winter Olympian with Team USA who recently made headlines for speaking out against the Beijing Olympics and International Olympic Committee (IOC). Noah has recently helped launch Global Athlete, an Olympic athlete movement dedicated to addressing the balance of power between athletes and Olympic administrators. In this episode we discuss his criticism of how the IOC operates, his interactions with current Team USA olympians, when protests are appropriate, the Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai, and more. Whether you agree or disagree with today’s guest, I invite you to join us with an open mind as we work to heal the division on future Olympic Games.
