TV Times OLYMPIC GAMES TV GUIDE

OLYMPIC TELECAST SCHEDULE: WEEK 1 SATURDAY, JULY 28 5.30am-9.30am on Nine and GEM Opening Ceremony of London 2012 Hosted by Ken Sutcliffe, Eddie McGuire and Leila McKinnon. The Opening Ceremony for the Olympic Games has a tradition as one of the most spectacular events in the world – a dazzling celebration of sport and culture showcased by the host nation. London will open the Games of the XXX Olympiad with another grand display at the new Olympic Stadium as it becomes the first city to host three Summer Olympics since the modern Games began in 1896. Her Majesty the Queen will be greeted by IOC President Jacques Rogge and LOCOG chairman and dual Olympic champion Lord Sebastian Coe. A highlight of the Ceremony is the Parade of Athletes – a procession of the participating teams into the Stadium, nation by nation. It is expected that more than 200 nations will be represented. Australia’s flag-bearer will be announced in the days before the Opening Ceremony. Among Nine’s special commentators are the former flag-bearers Andrew Gaze (Sydney 2000) and James Tomkins (Beijing 2008), Australia’s greatest champions in basketball and rowing respectively. Once all the nations have assembled in the Stadium, Lord Coe will give a speech, followed by Jacques Rogge. He will end his speech by introducing the Queen to officially declare The Games open, as her father King George VI did at Wembley in 1948.

● The Queen When The Games have been declared open the Olympic Flag is carried into the Stadium and hoisted into the air as the Olympic Anthem is played. The flag-bearers of each country then form a circle around the rostrum. A participating athlete, judge and coach from the host nation stand on the rostrum and, holding a corner of the Olympic Flag in their left hand and raising their right, take the Olympic Oath, vowing to compete and judge according to the rules of their respective sport. The big finale is the entrance of the Olympic Flame into the Stadium. It is passed through the athletes to the final torch-bearer. The big question is, who will light the Olympic Cauldron to signal the start of The Games?

2.00pm-6.00pm Opening Ceremony (replay) on Nine and GEM Watch a replay of the Opening Ceremony of the Games of the XXX Olympiad from London. Hosted by Ken Sutcliffe, Eddie McGuire and Leila McKinnon. Material for this feature has been supplied by the Nine Network

DAY 1 SATURDAY, JULY 28

6.30pm London Live on Nine and GEM Karl Stefanovic will host us through the first events of London 2012 from Nine’s studios in the International Broadcast Centre at Stratford Olympic Park. Nineteen sports get underway on Day 1 with 12 gold medals to be decided on the first day of competition in swimming, cycling, rowing, archery, fencing, judo, shooting and weightlifting. Australia is among the favourites on the road and in the pool. This session may include: Swimming The swimming heats begin at the Aquatics Centre. Ray Warren is joined by Olympic champions Grant Hackett and Giaan Rooney. ■ Women’s 400m individual medley: The defending champion and world record holder from Beijing, Stephanie Rice, blitzed the field in the trials and is getting back to her best after shoulder surgery. Australia’s other representative is Blair Evans. ■ Men’s 400m individual medley: Australia’s Thomas Fraser-Holmes and Daniel Tranter will be in action. Defending champion Michael Phelps, six-time world swimmer of the year, lines up with US team-mate Ryan Lochte who beat him at the selection trials. ■ Women’s 100m butterfly: Australia will be well represented by Alicia Coutts and 2008 bronze medallist Jessicah Schipper. ■ Men’s 400m freestyle: David McKeon follows in the footsteps of his parents Ron and Susie (Woodhouse) who both represented Australia in the pool. McKeon and Ryan Napoleon will make their Olympic debuts for Australia. ■ Men’s 100m breaststroke: Japan’s Kosuke Kitajima won both breaststroke events in Beijing and with team-mate Naoya Tomita will be prominent again. Look out for Aussies Christian Sprenger and Brenton Rickard. ■ Women’s 4 x 100m freestyle relay: The Dutch, reigning Olympic and world champs, will start favourites in the first of the six relays. Australia won the bronze in 2008. The Aussie team is likely to include triple Olympic Games gold medallist Libby Trickett. Cycling: Road Australia’s Tour de France hero Cadel Evans begins his quest for gold as one of the favourites in the 250km men’s road race. The field of 145 starts simultaneously at The Mall in central London and the first rider back to the start line wins. Riders will cycle through six London boroughs before racing through Surrey and then returning to The Mall. The majority of the field, expected to include local favourites Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish, have had just six days to recover from the 2012 Tour de France.

At the microphone, “the voice of cycling”, Phil Liggett, and Sydney Olympic gold medallist Scott McGrory. Rowing The rowing program starts with heats in nine disciplines at Eton Dorney. This purpose-built facility opened in 2006 and is set on 180ha of parkland near Windsor. Kate Hornsey and Sarah Tait begin their campaign in the women’s pairs. The women’s quad sculls see Kerry Hore, Amy Clay, Pauline Frasca and Dana Faletic in action. In the men’s eights, Australia faces the might of the reigning world champions from Germany.

Australia is the world champion in the lightweight men’s fours. Todd Skipworth, Ben Cureton, Sam Beltz and Anthony Edwards carry our hopes. The men’s quad scull team is one of Australia’s best chances of gold on the water. The crew of Dan Noonan, Chris Morgan, James McRae and Karsten Forsterling won gold at the world championships last year. In the men’s pairs Brodie Buckland and James Marburg will be in the thick of things. Kim Crow was magnificent at the World Cup women’s single sculls, taking silver and qualifying for London.

This will be their pathway to the individual events and then decide the finalists in the men’s individual event. Beach Volleyball The men and women begin their beach volleyball program at Horse Guards Parade, site of the historic Trooping of the Colour. Australia’s top-ranked women’s beach volleyball duo Becchara Palmer and Louise Bawden fly the flag for us along with Sydney gold medallist Natalie Cook, who will compete at her fifth Olympics with partner Tamsin Hinchley.

Sailing The sailing program gets underway at Weymouth in Dorset on the south coast. World Cup winner Brendan Casey will begin with two races in the Finn heavyweight dinghy class.

Water Polo The Aussie Sharks play the first of five preliminary round matches in men’s water polo against world champions Italy.

12.00am London Live continues Ken Sutcliffe takes over the hosting chair as a mountain of gold medals are decided. In archery it’s the women’s team gold at Lords, the lightweights and welterweights are in the boxing ring, and sabre is the weapon of choice in the men’s fencing gold medal match. This session may include: Swimming Four swimming gold medals to be decided and semi-finals in four events to be raced. ■ Men’s 4 x 100m freestyle relay: The reigning world champions from Australia will be looking for gold. Spearheaded by ‘The Missile’, James Magnussen, the Aussies will be out to show the Americans that their form in Shanghai in 2011 was just a pointer of things to come. ■ Women’s 400m freestyle: Kylie Palmer and Bronte Barratt have both been ranked in the top five in the world over this distance but will need to swim the race of their lives to overcome Britain’s superstar Rebecca Adlington, the reigning champ. ■ Women’s 100m butterfly: Ranked in the top three in the world, Alicia Coutts won gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in this event and silver at the world titles in 2011. Her main threat may come from team-mate Jessicah Schipper, the bronze medallist at Beijing. ■ Men’s 100m breaststroke: The Japanese are expected to dominate but Australia will be looking to Christian Sprenger and Brenton Rickard to surprise. Also, semi-finals in the men’s 200m freestyle, women’s 100m breaststroke, and men’s and women’s 100m backstroke. A feast of worldclass swimming. Diving The first of eight gold medals will be decided in the diving pool.

6.30pm London Live on GEM 6.45pm on Nine Karl Stefanovic brings viewers all the action from Day 3 of competition. Today 12 gold medals are decided in gymnastics, swimming, synchronised diving, shooting, fencing, weightlifting and judo. This session may include: Swimming The third day at the Aquatics Centre with swimming heats in three events. Ray Warren, Grant Hackett and Giaan Rooney will be poolside. ■ Women’s 200m individual medley: The shoulder injury that cast a cloud over the preparation of defending champion Stephanie Rice did not stop her from dominating the Australian championships. Her team-mate Alicia Coutts may well push her the whole way. ■ Women’s 200m freestyle: Australian pair Kylie Palmer and Bronte Barratt are in a field dominated by world and Olympic champion Federica Pellegrini of Italy. ■ Men’s 200m butterfly: This event belongs to Michael Phelps who is aiming for his third successive Olympic title over the distance. He has dominated the last decade, winning five world titles as well. In the hunt for Australia are Nick D’Arcy and Chris Wright. Gymnastics The women compete in a day of qualifying at the North Greenwich arena. Australia’s main hopes will be with Lauren Mitchell and Emily Little. Mitchell will attempt to qualify for the floor, vault and beam, while Little will take part in those three disciplines plus the uneven bars as she moves to a position in the individual all round category. Rowing Men’s and women’s repechages will keep hopes alive for some in the women’s pair and quad sculls, and the men’s pairs, quad sculls and eight. ■ Women’s double sculls: Local pair Grainger and Watkins are hot favourites to make history by becoming the first British women to win a rowing gold medal. At the 2011 world championships Kim Crow and Kerry Hore of Australia finished second. Crow will be partnered by Sydneysider Brooke Pratley with Hore moving to the quad. ■ Men’s four: No one knows this event better than James Tomkins, a member of the gold medal ‘Oarsome Foursome’ at Barcelona and Atlanta. Great Britain has dominated this event at the last three Olympics. Drew Ginn, two-time Olympic champion in the men’s pair, will again spearhead the Australian assault on Olympic gold in the men’s four alongside William Lockwood, James Chapman and Josh Dunkley Smith. Australia stunned Great Britain with a superb fighting win in the third of the World Cup lead-ups in Munich in June. Hockey Since Beijing, Australia’s men’s hockey team, the Kookaburras, have gone from strength to strength, winning gold in the World Cup, Champions Trophy and Commonwealth Games.

TV Times OLYMPIC GAMES TV GUIDE DAY 3 MONDAY, JULY 30

DAY 4 TUESDAY, JULY 31

The world’s number one-ranked team begins the campaign for gold with a preliminary match against South Africa. Equestrian For many it’s the most spectacular day in eventing as riders and horses tackle the crosscountry phase at Greenwich Park. Formerly a three-day event, it is now spread over four days and it is here that Australia has performed so well in Olympic history. Shooting Australia has two shooters in the men’s 10m air rifle qualifying round. Olympic debutants Dane Sampson and Willie Godward will each have 60 shots at a target 10m away within 75 minutes. On the range Australia’s skeet shooters take their first shots in men’s qualifying. Clive Barton returns to the team alongside Keith Ferguson. In this first session they fire at 75 targets. Weightlifting The first of Australia’s two weightlifters and our only woman competitor, Seen Lee, takes part in the 58kg contest. Judo Day three of the judo and Australia’s sole female entrant, Carli Renzi, fights in the -57kg category. The 29-year-old Victorian is the Oceania champion. Sailing Five-time world champion Tom Slingsby begins his quest for Olympic gold when the sailing resumes at Weymouth. Jessica Crisp is one of the favourites in the RS: X Windsurfer after winning silver in the World Cup in Holland in May. The pair of Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen are in world-beating form after taking gold at the 49er world titles in Croatia in May. In the Laser Radial class Krystal Weir comes off a gold medal performance in the ISAF World Cup in Holland and will open her campaign with back-toback races. Boxing Australia’s boxing team is represented today by Jackson Woods in the first round of the men’s flyweight (52kg) while Damien Hooper starts his light-heavyweight (81kg) campaign. Regarded as one of our best medal hopes, Hooper, 19, from Dalby in Queensland, won his place with a top eight finish in the 2011 world championships following on from his win at the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympics. Canoe Slalom The Australian C2 pair of Kynan Maley and South African-born Robin Jeffery will run the Lee Valley whitewater course twice in the heats. Jessica Fox, 18, will make history as Australia’s youngest ever slalom paddler. Her father Richard won ten kayaking gold medals at world championship level for Great Britain while her mother Myriam won eight for France and Olympic bronze in Atlanta. Fox will represent Australia in the K1 event. Basketball The Opals’ quest for Olympic glory continues in their second match. This time they will face a qualifier.

■ Women’s 200m individual medley: The winner of the 400-200 IM gold medals in Beijing, Stephanie Rice, will start hot favourite if she produces her best form. Watch out for her team-mate, 2010 Commonwealth Games superstar Alicia Coutts. ■ Men’s 100m freestyle: Australia will be cheering for James Magnussen to make it through to the semi-finals of the 100m freestyle. ■ Women’s 200m freestyle: Our hopes rest with Queenslanders Bronte Barratt and Kylie Palmer. ■ Men’s 200m butterfly: The dramas surrounding Nick D’Arcy have been well documented but this will hopefully be his greatest moment. He was superb in the trials and won his place alongside Chris Wright. The event has belonged to America’s Michael Phelps, aiming for his third consecutive Olympic title. ■ Men’s 4 x 200m freestyle relay: The depth of Australia’s freestylers will be tested. They finished third to the Americans in Beijing in 2008 and fifth to them at the world championships in Shanghai last year. Other semis are the women’s 200m butterfly and men’s 200m breaststroke. Diving The third of the eight diving gold medals will be decided. It is the women’s synchronised platform where Rachel Bugg teams up with fourtime Olympian Loudy Wiggins. Water Polo The Aussie Sharks return to the pool for their second water polo preliminary facing Kazakhstan. Hockey The Australian women’s hockey team, the Hockeyroos, play their second preliminary match against Germany. David Christison and Rechelle Hawkes have all the action from the Hockey Centre. Volleyball Australia meets Great Britain in its second men’s volleyball qualifier. It is best of five sets, with the Aussies (ranked 22 in the world) favoured to defeat the host nation.

12.00am London Live continues Ken Sutcliffe takes over the hosting duties as another sensational day of Olympic action unfolds from London. This session may include: Diving The men’s synchronised diving from the 10m platform will see the Aussie pair of Matthew Mitcham and Jimmy Connor out for gold. Water Polo The Australian women’s water polo team – the Stingers – open their 2012 campaign with a preliminary match against European champions Italy. The Stingers, 2000 Olympic gold medallists, play three matches to decide the seedings for the quarter-finals. To figure in the medal rounds they must finish first or second in their group. Swimming Four more swimming gold medals and semifinals in three events to be decided at the pool. Finals: ■ Women’s 100m breaststroke: Leisel Jones

DAY 4 TUESDAY, JULY 31

Jones will face tough opposition from teammate Leiston Pickett who ended her 12-year reign as national champion. ■ Men’s 200m freestyle: The reigning champion is American Michael Phelps. Australia’s hopes lie with Thomas Fraser-Holes and Kenrick Monk. ■ Women’s 100m backstroke: Australia has not won a gold in this event but will be hoping for a breakthrough courtesy of Emily Seebohm or Belinda Hocking. ■ Men’s 100m backstroke: Hayden Stoeckel won the bronze four years ago in Beijing. With the retirement of the mighty American champ and five-time gold medallist Aaron Peirsol from this event, he has the chance to improve on that result in London. Watch out for fellow Aussie DanielArnamnart. As well as the four finals there will be semifinals in the women’s 200m freestyle, men’s 200m butterfly, and Stephanie Rice in the women’s 200m individual medley.

lanes in the semis. ■ Women’s 200m butterfly: The Chinese dominated in Beijing but watch out for 2008 bronze medallist Jessicah Schipper and fellow Aussie Samantha Hamill. ■ Men’s 200m breaststroke: Queenslander Brenton Rickard won the silver at Beijing in this event and is likely to confront his nemesis Kosuke Kitajima from Japan. ■ Men’s 200m freestyle relay: The Americans will come out with all guns blazing, however this is a new-look Australian team (bronze medallists at Beijing) spearheaded by Thomas Fraser-Holmes and Kenrick Monk.

OLYMPIC FACTS

The early Olympic Games were cel ebrated as a religious festival from 776 B.C. until 393 A.D., when the games were banned for being a pagan festival (the Olympics celebrated the Greek god Zeus). In 1894, a French educator Baron Pierre de Coubertin, proposed a revival of the ancient tradition, and thus the modern-day Olympic Summer Games were born.

Host Greece won the most medals (47) at the first Summer Games in 1896. The first Winter Olympic Games were held in Chamonix, France in 1924.

The five Olympic rings represent the five major regions of the world – Africa, the Americas,Asia, Europe and Oceana, and every national flag in the world includes one of the five colors, which are (from left to right) blue, yellow, black, green, and red.

TV Times OLYMPIC GAMES TV GUIDE

NINE LEADS FREE-TO-AIR COVERAGE

■ London 2012 is all about numbers with 10,500 athletes from 204 countries competing in 26 sports and 39 disciplines over 16 days of elite sporting competition. The Nine Network’s extensive coverage of the Games of the XXX Olympiad will be unrivalled in breadth and quality – more than 370 hours of free-to-air television (Channel Nine + 3D) represents an international broadcasting breakthrough in Australia. The Games will be simulcast in High Definition on Gem. As a new competition day begins in London, the Nine Network will go live to London for a minimum of 14.5 hours broadcasting London Live. Five of Australia’s most experienced television broadcasters will share the daily live hosting duties for Nine’s Olympic Games coverage: Karl Stefanovic, Ken Sutcliffe, Leila McKinnon, Cameron Williams and Mark Nicholas. London Live will begin each night with Karl Stefanovic kicking off the prime-time coverage. The face and voice of Wide World of Sports, Ken Sutcliffe, will then host the overnight action. Weekend Today co-hosts Leila McKinnon and Cameron Williams will take over from Sutcliffe and present Nine’s Olympic Games coverage over breakfast each morning.

Nine was the Australian rights-holder for The Winter Olympics in Calgary in 1988, Albertville in 1992, Lillehammer in 1994 and Vancouver in 2010. In 2012, Nine is fired up and ready to bring Australian viewers the biggest free-to-air broadcast of an Olympic Games from overseas.

Can IAAF Athlete of the Year and Nine’s Olympic Ambassador Sally Pearson go one better than Beijing and bring home the gold? Australia’s best hopes among the men in the pool will lie with 2011 world 100m freestyle champion James ‘The Missile’ Magnussen. He goes to London as the superstar of our swim squad, but will he swim home with the gold? Will Australian pole vault gold medallist Steve Hooker retain his Olympic title? The Kookaburras are the reigning World Cup, Champions Trophy and Commonwealth Games champions in men’s hockey – can they add Olympic gold medallists to that impressive list? Will Australia dominate at the velodrome? Are the experts right in predicting Australia will grab three gold medals in sailing? And how many medals can Australia lift from the pool? In the final countdown to the world’s biggest sporting event, Karl Stefanovic and Leila McKinnon will preview the London 2012 Olympic Games at 7pm on Thursday (July 26) when Nine presents Let The Games Begin. This hour-long special will take viewers on tours of the Olympic venues, feature exclusive interviews with leading Australian athletes including Olympic gold medal hopeful Sally Pearson, and include the hosts from Wide World of Sports and members of the Nine Network’s expert commentary team.

The big week culminates with all the highlights from the Australian Olympic Team Reception and the announcement of the Austral-

lian flag-bearer for the Opening Ceremony. Nine News will have its reporting teams and camera crews on the ground covering the London 2012 Olympic Games around the clock. And with its access to the Australian Olympic Team, plus exclusive rights-holder access to the Athletes Village, As Australian viewers tune in to watch athletes create sporting history, the Nine News teams will have the stories behind those magic moments.

Nine News will continue to report on the buildup until the moment our athletes compete, and the moment they finish their Olympic campaign Nine’s reporting teams in London will be headed by Ken Sutcliffe and Tony Jones, two of Australia’s most experienced sporting journalists.

Peter Stefanovic, who is based in London, will have unprecedented access to the London Olympic venues. Each night the Nine News live bulletin at 6pm will cross to London for an Olympic Games update. Tony Jones will present all The Games news for the Melbourne audience. As well as providing Australian viewers with the best stories at the Olympics during its premium 6pm bulletins, Nine News will have updates throughout the day and into the night. If a major story breaks at or around Olympic venues, Nine News will bring it to its viewers live. At 11am each weekday Nine News will have special reports on London 2012. Channel Nine was there when The Olympics first came to Australia almost six decades ago for the Melbourne 1956 Olympic Games. With television then in its infancy in Australia, the Channel Nine crew was world class. The historic coverage was spearheaded by Tony Charlton, Ted Harris, America’s Wimbledon and US Open champion Jack Kramer, Australia’s Test cricket captain Ian

Johnson, and the legendary Jesse Owens, the four-time Olympic champion from Berlin in 1936. It was an amazing team of commentators considering there were only about 5000 television sets in Australia at the time. Nine was part of The Olympics coverage twice in the 1960s. Tony Charlton called both the swimming and track and field in Tokyo in 1964, and among the highlights was his call of Betty Cuthbert’s win in the 400 metres. In Mexico City in 1968 he called Ralph Doubell’s 800m win. Jack Cannon and Ron Casey were Nine’s men at Montreal in 1976. After a 12-year break, Nine’s association with The Olympics resumed with the coverage of the Calgary 1988 Olympic Winter Games and has continued with three more Winter Olympics broadcasts: Albertville in 1992, Lillehammer in 1994 and Vancouver in 2010 – which was the most extensive coverage yet of The Winter Olympics. In 2012, as well as free-to-air coverage on the Nine Network, GEM will simulcast the London 2012 Olympic Games in high definition, while digital channel 95 will broadcast the Nine Network’s 3D Olympic trial The London 2012 Olympic Games are all about tradition, and a shroud of secrecy surrounds preparations for the Opening Ceremony on Saturday (July 28), at 5.30am. Just as her father, King George VI, opened the London 1948 Olympic Games at Wembley, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will do the honours for London 2012. London has hosted The Olympics twice before. The 1908 Games were awarded to Rome, but the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 1906 forced the Italians to withdraw as hosts. London stepped in, built a new stadium at Shepherd’s Bush, and produced a notable Olympic spectacle. London was then chosen to host in 1944, but World War II forced their cancellation. In 1948, 12 years after the previous Olympic Games were held in Berlin and as London continued to rebuild post-war, the ‘Austerity Games’ saw athletes housed in army camps and remodelled schoolrooms. Germany and Japan were not invited. The Games in 1948 were doubly notable – being also the first Games of the television era to take the Olympic spectacle into homes.
