...but ultimately still a sad commentary on how these guys kind of game the system. I'm not sure that it's really respectful to their competitors, or really even to the organizers. I get that they're not happy with the prize ceremony being at night. But still. Just sad.

To answer your question - anyone in Europe living south of a line Oslo to Stockholm soeantto Helsinki doesn't care whatsoever. World Champs in biathlon on the other side...And sad as it is, it has been very few stories in the Canadian newspapers despite Harvey doing well.

Sudden: streams everything live and you can watch later as well albeit without commentary. FIS should do the same.

Wil - TV4 has the biathlon rights and not SVT.

Jeff Ellis was telling me that International Biathlon owns the rights and can then sell to whomever. However for skiing its owned by the national federation. Thus SWE SKI can sell for big bucks and CCC has to pay for CBC to cover the races.
