About The Event

Olympic Legend Edwin Moses hosts an honest dialogue with 1980 U.S. Olympians sharing their thoughts and relating their experiences since the boycott.  Due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, athletes are now grappling with the unprecedented postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. While the circumstances are vastly different - much of the terrain the current Team U.S.A. is preparing to traverse was traveled by the 1980 team.
