[Olympics] 400M Results


 Share

Recommended Posts

Jeremy Wariner is one sick dude. The ease he runs at, it looks so simple and easy for him.

I can't wait now until 2008 to see him after a few years of more training and experience.

Not that it matters, but it's been a long time since a white sprinter this good has come along.

Ottis Harris and Derrick Brew also have great potential, I think Beijing is another 1-2-3.

The olympics are not shown live in the US? :huh:

No they arent shown live! The 400 for example isnt till around 8 or 9 here in Colorado. So i always know what happens when I go to watch them. i wish they were live

They only show the olympics late night, which means they are filmed. I confirmed this when on ESPN.com it said Phelps's team won the relay for his eigth medal and NBC said it was going to happen later in the night.

Why aren't they live? No oppurtunity for commercial breaks?

Uh, geography? US is on the other side of the planet. No one wants to stay up until 3:00AM to see their favorite events ;)

Well you can show them live and still a "best of" in the evening. I mean there are a trillion channels in the US one of them must surely be dedicated to the olypmics? :D The 100M f.e. was at ~3PM US time anyway.

I live on the east coast, and it is a 7 hour time difference. Many of the good event happen mid-day in Greece, which is like 7:00 am here and would be 4:00am in California. I am glad they replay the event so I could see awesome matches like the Womens Beach VOlleyball tonight that fng rocked. ANyways, time delay is nothing new. If you remember, the winter Olympics were in Nagano a few years ago, which is like 13-14 hours ahead...and Sidney was like 10-11 hours. I actually like the competition more than what medals we get....go USA!!!

some of the events are live. We have 6 channels that the olypics are shown on, just noone really watches these channels. On NBC HD (hi-def) they have 24 hour coverage
