In our first Quest for Gold of 2020 we begin the march to the Summer Games in Tokyo.

Japan has announced what athletes will be sleeping on this summer.

A couple former U.S. Olympic medalists are campaigning for presidential contenders in 2020.

The U.S. Women’s Soccer roster is getting sorted out for 2020.

And we talk with two-time U.S. Olympian and Tour De France cyclist Christian Vande Velde.  He retired in 2013, but still remains active in the sport…whether broadcasting for NBC Sports, or pushing people on Peloton bikes.  We talk with him about his appearances in the 2000 and 2008 Olympics, the doping scandal that dogged the sport a decade ago, and turning a love for biking in suburban Chicago into an international racing career.
