The Olympic Spirit is running strong through the Short Time Wrestling Podcast as we get ready for Rio with Episode 277. On today's show, we'll talk with USA Today Sports Columnist Nancy Armour (Twitter: @nrarmour) about some of the stories she'll be covering in Rio as well as some backstory on how some Olympic stories get mega press and others get overlooked.
Armour is a veteran journalist and an award-winning Olympic writer. Having covered 11 Olympic Games on both the winter and summer side of things, her insight and knowledge is one wrestling fans will want to take in. She knows why things move the needle and we could probably take a hint or two throughout the course of the episode.
Armour also hosts an Olympic-themed podcast called Going for Gold, which is available on iTunes (linked already) and on Soundcloud.
