First off, sorry I didn’t post a complete broadcast schedule today. Was busy with other things last night. But, here are the primetime highlights across CTV, TSN, Sportsnet, OLN and NBC this evening. Lots of medals given out (and taken away, kind of) on the penultimate day of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
CTV: Host Brian Williams gives a complete rundown of Day 15 highlights and results. With a focus on Canadian performances, the four hour show looks at Catharine Pendrel in mountain bike, Mark de Jonge, Hugues Fournel and Ryan Cochrane in canoe/kayak, Riley McCormick* and Eric Sehn* in men’s 10m platform diving and more. OLYMPIC PRIME TIME ON CTV also recaps the athletics events of the day – including another highly-anticipated race featuring Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake in the men’s 4x100m relay – and the men’s soccer final.
TSN: Host Darren Dutchyshen takes sports fans through four hours of Day 15 highlights including recaps of the women’s volleyball gold medal game between Brazil and the United States, the men’s soccer final featuring Brazil vs. Mexico and men’s taekwondo +80kg with Canada’s François Coulombe-Fortier.
Sportsnet: Host Brad Fay recaps Canadian mountain biker Catharine Pendrel’s quest for a medal in the women’s cross-country.
