Gearing Up For 2014 Sochi Paralympics
Posted by Nancy on September 30, 2013
Preparations are being made toward the 2014 Paralympics which are to be held in Sochi, Russia and the gearing up is being done by more than just the large number who are expected to participate. NBC Sports Network has agree to air more than 46 hours of coverage for a much broader audience than was seen by the London Paralympic viewers. Criticism had been leveled against NBC after the sparse coverage it offered for last year’s London Paralympics. With some of the premier athletes in the world participating in these demanding events it certainly does behoove the network to expand their viewing audience. Over the course of 9 days next winter, 692 top notch athletes are expected to participate in 72 medal events which will provide a visual feast for the exponentially larger audience that will be viewing.
