Broadcasts: 2008 Olympic Triathlon Broadcast Coverage

The 2008 Olympic Games will feature two great triathlon competitions — stellar fields will compete both the men’s and women’s Olympic Distance events.

The Olympic Distance races feature a 1,500M swim, 40KM bike race, and 10KM run.

The men’s and women’s triathlons will be held as separate events on Sunday, August 17th (Women) and Tuesday, August 19th (Men).

Due to the time difference between Beijing and the United States — and the crossing of the International Date Line — the Triathlons will be happening in the evening the day before these dates here in the US.

In the United States, NBC is the official broadcaster of the Olympic Games. NBC uses various networks to show the breadth of coverage of the Games. The Triatlons will be broadcasts on various NBC channels and will be available on-line.
