There is no delay.  It is airing live right now in real time.


I should have used the term "time difference".  Many are asleep or working during many of the live competitions and often hear/see the results before they show the highlights in our prime time.  Local news just said that Simone Biles first qualifier will be 1:10am Sunday morning - won't be staying up for that.  Although maybe a Covid positive - maybe I'll be able to watch some live evening competitions on the mornings I'm still working from home (if I can still focus on work, that is.)

 

Happens often, but it's worse when in Asia/Australia. It's just another reason for me to be less excited about the Olympics this year.

I don't see this COVID thing leaving till at least 2030!  It'll just drag and on, mutating new variants.  They might as have no Olympics.

Re: Olympic opening ceremony

I'll be the outlier here and say I thought it was a very disappointing open ceremony.  I think the drone thing was breathtaking and probably very cool in person but it seemed very short.

 

And I'm not sure why John Legend has to be a part of everything.

Re: Olympic opening ceremony

@50Mickey   Thank you for being so kind.  I bet it is strange for the athletes to walk in an empty stadium and I bet Japan is hurting for money back on all their improvements for the Olympics.
