WOC 2008 Middle - TV footage analysis

Below is provided an overview of the TV footage from WOC 2008 Middle. Focus has been on the men's race.


One of the best orienteering broadcasts with a lot of good elements which have not all been seen later on. E.g. nationality flags on GPS-tracking for runners, split screen showing GPS and camera footage in sync, running time graphics on GPS tracking data, GPS of runner just after he is starting, etc.

Also good, long TV-splits.
