COLUMBUS — The Tim May Podcast is back for a second edition this week, and it has an international twist as Team USA gears up for the Olympics.

Lettermen Row’s Tim May has a huge edition of the show, speaking to two of the 26 current or former Ohio State athletes who will be competing in the Olympics in Tokyo over the next few weeks. Ohio State shot-putter Adelaide Aquilla is the first guest.

Aquilla won both the indoor and outdoor national championship last season on her way to winning Ohio State Female Athlete of the Year. She won Big Ten titles and has proven herself to be one of the best shot-putters in the world. Now she has an opportunity to prove that on the world stage in Tokyo for the Olympics.

Tim also talked to Alec Yoder, who was selected as an additional selection on the Team USA Men’s Gymnastics Team. He’ll be tasked specifically with being a pommel horse specialist for the Olympics. A member of the 2018 World Championships Team, Yoder was the 2020 winter pommel horse champion and has proven himself to be among the best at the event in the world.

Now he also gets to prove himself once again in Tokyo.

How are the Buckeyes olympians training before they arrive in Tokyo for the Olympic Games? What are the expectations for Yoder and Aquilla during their time at the Olympics over the next month?
