2012 Olympic Gymnastics TV Schedule

Over the next two weeks the Canadian Sports Media Blog will feature sport-by-sport TV schedules for every Olympic sport that is broadcast live on Canadian TV during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. I will post about two per night, so keep checking back to see the schedule for your favourite sport.

Canada has qualified one men’s artistic gymnast and a whole women’s team. Canada also has medal hopes in trampoline where Karen Cockburn has won a medal at every Olympics since the event debuted in 2000. Here is a complete list of strong Canadian medal contenders. I’ve highlighted these events in red on the schedule.

Women’s Trampoline – Karen Cockburn (2008 Olympic silver medallist) and Rosannagh MacLennan (2011 World silver medallist)
Men’s Trampoline – Jason Burnett (2008 Olympic silver medallist)

Rod Black will call gymnastics at the 2012 Olympics for CTV. London is Black’s fifth Olympics. He previously covered 1992, 1994 and 2010 for CTV, as well as 2002 for TSN. The analysts are Kyle Shewfelt (Artistic) and Erika-Leigh Howard (Rhythmic). Shewfelt was a guest analyst on CBC’s coverage in 2008.
