Any other Left Coasters give up on the NBC coverage?

    NBC failed miserably at both tasks. I don't mind that synch diving and BMX were on TV, I just don't want to have to watch them in the vain expectation I might see 2 minutes of some track final sandwiched in between. As someone observed two weeks ago here, the posted schedules were beyond the grasp of any human being.
    Completely agree here.

    And I never saw the women's 5K either.

    The U.S. track team gets a D from me but NBC gets and fattie F.

      No, I missed that. Oh, yeah, I was at the meet My only trip to eastern Canada. Back before there were WCs, we went to WCups. Did the first three, then missed the really great one
