Kelley O’Hara jumps into the guest seat as ESPN’s Katie Nolan stops by to talk all things Olympics. Kelley unpacks the USWNT’s surprising 2016 defeat in Rio, which fueled the team’s run through the 2019 World Cup, while also discussing unusual Olympics prep (thermometer pills, anyone?), what makes the Olympics harder to win than a World Cup, and how the team is feeling heading into Tokyo. Her and Katie then discuss what it would mean for the USWNT to become the first team to ever win the World Cup and Olympics back-to-back.
