2012 Winter X Games on TSN & TSN2

with one comment

The 2012 Winter X Games take place this weekend in Aspen, Colorado. The Winter X Games bring together the best snowboarders, freestyle skiers and snowmobilers from around the world. Most of the snowboarding and freestyle skiing disciplines are part of the 2014 Sochi Olympics as well, so X Games is a great chance for Canadians to familiarize themselves with some of Canada’s 2014 medal hopefuls.

TSN and TSN2 will show exclusive coverage of the Winter X Games in Canada. TSN2 will show 12 hours of live coverage on the weekend. TSN will broadcast Thursday and Friday coverage on delay at 11pm ET.

Thursday’s broadcast will feature a tribute to the late Sarah Burke. Sarah was a Canadian freestyle skier who was a four-time X Games gold medallist in halfpipe, as well as a World Champion. She died due to a brain injury suffered earlier this month while training in Utah.
