Go to Europe

February 2, 2003

Today marked the beginning of the 2003 FIS Alpine World Championships in St. Moritz. (Today, in the Men's Super G, Austrian Stephan Eberharter edged out Hermann Maier and American Bode Miller, who tied for second. Even though there will be two weeks of races, television coverage here in the US will be minimal at best. ESPN plans to show an hour of taped coverage of the men's downhill on Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 4 at 3 pm), and NBC will show two hours on Saturday (at 1 pm) and another two on Sunday (at 4 pm.) That's all, and even less than in 2001, when ESPN showed an hour a day late at night.

If want to see coverage, the US is not the place to be. Hopefully, I can find some decent coverage on the web... Posted by Andrew Raff at February 2, 2003 11:46 PM
