Episode 47: Athletico Christmas Eve (Tokyo Olympic Preview)

Happy Athletico Christmas Eve!! Happy 5th Birthday to us!!

It’s a double celebration in this bumper special episode of TrackCastic and the whole gang are here to share the excitement.

5 years ago TrackCastic was born! We began with a preview to the Rio 2016 Olympic Athletics, so it’s only right we celebrate our birthday by doing the same!

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are finally here! It’s a year late, but it’s actually happening!

We have a new format to preview every event on the schedule. So, sit back, relax and enjoy listening to all the wildly inaccurate predictions!

PS – Sorry it’s so long.
