Television Coverage of Olympic Track Racing

It was difficult for me to find the track related events coverage in nbc's coverage map, so I figured I'd save everyone the trouble of searching and jotting and post the schedule here.

Data ordered chronologically:
Friday, August 20 1:00pm Track Finals msnbc
Sunday, August 22 12:30am Track Gold Medal Finals nbc
Monday, August 23 12:35am Track Gold Medal Finals nbc
Tuesday, August 24 12:00am Track Events bravo
Tuesday, August 24 1:00pm Track Gold Medal Finals msnbc
Wednesday, August 25 12:30pm Track Gold Medal Finals nbc
Wednesday, August 25 8:00pm Track Gold Medal Finals nbc

How'd you figure this out? I'm also trying to figure out the specifics on the vball events. I'm Tivo'ing everything but w/ so much coverage, I'm gonna run out of disk space quick.

that's excellent! that nbc website is sh*t for finding anything. thank you
for doing what nbc and microsoft couldn't "MSNBC". why don't they arrange
it so if a person clicks on the chosen sport--it lists when and where for that
sport!? Instead it....oh, nevermind, that website is for sh*t

thank you --sorry for the rant!

I watched sat note/sun morning and the cycling wasn't on till 1:30 - 2:00 or so, who knows.
Probalem is, one doesn't know whne the 15 minutes (if we are lucky) will happen during the broadcast.

Just think, I coulda watched Evita.

last night on BRAVO at midnight they showed two races. the womens sprint and
the 5km pursuit(sp?) Good stuff--would like to see more--Duh!
in the womens' race, the first 'go-round' they finished at the same time--
a tie!! Didn't know that was possible with the thousands of a second,
photofinish-blah-blah.. but they did!
i've got the half hour taped on vhs tape--if there are no rebroadcasts--and
how would we know???? if there aren't any, you are welcome to the tape.
