NBC Streams Olympic Wrestling Trials

From this press release:

The TriCaster will be used to stream the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Wrestling live from the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas June 13th through 15th.

Coverage of this event will feature competitions in 18 separate Olympic wrestling weight classes in three distinct Olympic styles (men’s freestyle, men’s Greco-Roman, and women’s freestyle) on the program for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The live web cast, hosted by veteran wrestling announcers Van Stokes and Scott Casber, will be seen on at 5:00 pm PST each day.

“While the finals of this event are being taped and broadcast on June 22nd on MSNBC, the most enthusiastic wrestling fans will be able to see all the qualifying action live this weekend” said Philip Nelson, SVP Strategic Development, NewTek. “TriCaster’s portability and ease of use is giving USA Wrestling the chance to deliver this live, extended coverage of the United States Olympic Team Trials to a worldwide audience.”
