TOKYO, Japan – KSL TV’s Jeremiah Jense is live in Tokyo covering the Olympics games and each weeknight at 7:35 p.m. MT/10:35 a.m. JST he will be joining KSL’s Unrivalaed about what he has been up to while covering a once-in-a-lifetime Summer Olympic games.

Check back each evening to hear what he is up to.

July 22 — preparing for the Games. Jeremiah discusses what his life has been like getting to Tokyo with all of the protocols he has to follow. There was multiple COVID-19 tests, quarantines, and a limited amount of time to check out the city so far.

July 26 — The big conversation from Tokyo is how great USA is doing in the pool by taking hope multiple medals during the first weekend. The bad news is how the men’s basketball team not only lost to France but are just not as good as the other teams in the field. One main reason is due to the lack of practice time these Team USA members have had with each other. Other nations have had years of playing with their teammates, and some of these American players have spent maybe weeks learning to play with this roster.

July 27 — There is one story that is dominating the Olympics from Team USA and it is gymnasts Simone Biles who has decided to withdraw from the rest of the Olympic games, citing mental health reasons and likely due to the pressure she is facing to be so good. Jeremiah Jensen also talks about how Team USA basketball can rebound vs. Iran and get back on track.

Aug. 2 — Simone Biles ends up competing in the beam competition and earns a bronze medal. Jeremiah Jensen also discusses how odd it is to be at these Olympic events and there is nobody in the stands.

Aug. 4 — Jeremiah Jensen talks about what his favorite sport is at the Olympics and it might be table tennis, because every kid either had one or knew a buddy who had a ping pong table and played the game for hours. Watching the pros is amazing.
