Petition the IOC to deny NBC future broadcasting rights because of delayed broadcasting of track and field events.
- The International Olympic Committee
This petition is in response to NBC’s selective broadcasting of Olympic events and results. It is impossible to have live broadcast of every event, but the track and field 100 and 200 meters were broadcast live in practically every country in the world except the United States of America.
The IOC should find it unacceptable that NBC would choose not to broadcast or give the results of track and field events on any of its TV channels, until 12 to 18 hours after the event. This is even more deplorable since the Olympics were conceived around track and field events.
