US marathon runner waves Palestinian flag at Olympic trials

The Olympics have never been apolitical, and this year, athletes have already begun to make political statements ahead of the games in Paris this summer. During the Olympic marathon trials, three US athletes unfurled the Palestinian flag at the finish line. As Israel's genocide against Palestinians in Gaza continues unimpeded by the US and Europe, the possibility of the Paris Olympics turning into a political battleground for the international Palestinian solidarity movement grows more likely. Jesse Joseph, one of the athletes at the center of the recent display of solidarity at the Olympic trials, joins Edge of Sports to explain his and his fellow athletes' actions, and discuss how Palestine could figure in the upcoming games.
