A Conversation with Christine Brennan
Beijing 2022 and the Future of the Olympics

The Medill Club of DC and the NU Club of DC invite you to join us for a night with sports journalist, Medill alumna and NU Trustee Christine Brennan (BSJ80, MSJ81).

Brennan’s 20th Olympic Games were the wildest yet. The longest-serving U.S. journalist covering the Olympics, Brennan broke the news triggering the Russian figure skating doping scandal and led the coverage in her USA Today column and in numerous appearances as a commentator for CNN, ABC News and PBS NewsHour, World News Tonigh, Nightline and Good Morning America.

While on the ground and in the “closed-loop” in Beijing in February, Brennan called out the International Olympic Committee in press conferences and in her commentary about Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai’s sexual assault allegation and Russia’s state-sponsored doping. Brennan will discuss the news and the stories of the Games, from Nathan Chen to Eileen Gu to Mikaela Shiffrin, as well as how the IOC should deal with Russia and what it all means for the future of the Olympics.
