TCA Ep856: Team Canada's Amy Burk Talks About Preparing for The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, Early Returns From The Olympics, The Tragically Hip's Latest Project And Tons More

Today we're pumped to welcome back 4 time Canadian Paralympian Amy Burk to the podcast with an absolute ton to talk about.

We'd love it if you'd take a moment and leave a rating and a review for the show there on your podcast app. It only takes a second and it helps out TCA a great deal.

Coming to you live from Amy's patio, we kick the show off by trying a brand new beer created by the Tragically Hip called the Lake Fever Lager. And guys - this one is a winner and the perfect launching point for a conversation that will centre around Canada.

inside you'll find talk on: Amy's preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, how her training has evolved as restrictions are gradually lifted across Canada, the idea of representing an imperfect nation in a moment of reflection over our relationship with Canada's indigenous community, early newsbits from Tokyo as the Olympic Games get set to kick off this week, COVID cases already inside the Olympic Village and whether there's still a chance these Games could be cancelled, preparing for a competition where most teams haven't seen each other in two years and so much more.

You can follow Amy on social media @BurkAmy7.
