YOG in world's media

http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking...ry_569114.html

Games carried by 166 broadcasters worldwide, and is a hit on YouTube

TORCH bearer Darren Choy's walk on water, the sheer promise of teen talent, and Singapore's sleek skyline have caught the world's attention since the inaugural Youth Olympic Games (YOG) kicked off last weekend.

A number of newspapers and TV channels in Asia and the West are paying more than a fleeting homage to the displays of the world's finest sporting talent in the making.

International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge said he was delighted by the television coverage and the YouTube hits garnered by the YOG.

'I'm very happy with the television coverage because we've been able to sign contracts with 166 broadcasters in so many countries,' he told The Straits Times at the Youth Olympic Village yesterday.

'The day before yesterday, we were the third most-watched item on YouTube in the world... that's something.'

China, a country known for its sporting prowess, is giving the Games play-by-play coverage.

State broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) telecast the opening ceremony live and since then has been beaming nine hours of action daily on its CCTV5 sports channel.

State news agency Xinhua and national newspapers like People's Daily and China Youth Daily have dispatched a contingent of reporters to Singapore.

The surprise is that even provincial papers like the Guangzhou Daily and the Nanjing Daily have boots on the ground.

The heightened interest is at least partly because the YOG torch next passes to Nanjing.

In Taiwan, the main news outlets such as United Daily News, China Times and the Central News Agency are more narrowly focused on the exploits of the 36-member Chinese Taipei delegation.

The reports are carried in the sports pages on most days, but on Wednesday, weightlifter Kuo Hsing-chun made front page news when she gave Taiwan its first medal, a silver.

The Japanese media is known to turn a blind eye even to the Asian Games or the Commonwealth Games unless a world record or a Japanese record is broken.

But Yomiuri Shimbun and Asahi Shimbun, the largest vernacular dailies, sat up when Japanese triathlete Yuka Sato bagged the first gold of the YOG. They have been running pictures daily, as well as short write-ups of the day's highlights.

The interest of the Indian media, including The Times of India and The Hindu, revolves around the fortunes of the national team. The coverage is thin, although New Delhi is itself preparing to host the Commonwealth Games in a few weeks.

In the Philippines, the two main broadsheets - The Philippine Daily Inquirer and The Philippine Star - have been playing up basketball, the nation's favourite sport. The Filipinos' narrow loss to the Spaniards was the lead sports story in The Philippine Star on Wednesday.

After splashing the opening ceremony, the Indonesian, Malaysian and Thai media tapered off their coverage - save for the performance of national athletes and some celebrity moments, like Monaco's Princess Stephanie watching her daughter dive.

But quite apart from the tales of little-known teenagers stoking national pride with their grace and grit, the YOG is being watched for the lessons it holds for future hosts.

On the eve of the YOG, The Advertiser, an Adelaide tabloid, led off a one-page curtain-raiser with this poser: 'The question on many South Australian lips will be: Could we do this?'

It said the city officials will assess the success of the Singapore YOG before considering a bid.

The Age, the Daily Telegraph, the Herald Sun and others are featuring the Games in scoreboards, snippets and occasional pictures to cater to sports-mad Australians.

The Guardian, The Independent and most other British dailies are paying special attention, because of the forthcoming London 2012 Olympics.

The Washington Post, not normally persuaded to run any sports story that is not about the American football team Redskins, put up a story on track-and-field athlete Olivia Ekpone on its Sports section cover, albeit at the bottom. She competed in the 200m dash on Thursday and will go on to London 2012.

The New York Times pounced on the controversial Iranian pullout from a taekwondo final against an Israeli.

The BBC and, to a lesser extent, CNN are also giving sporadic coverage to the YOG on their bulletins and websites.

I don't see any YOG headlines.. maybe i'm blind.

There's the occasional snippet when an Aussie wins, but other than that they are more interested in AFL, cricket and rugby.

nowadays have to read the states times with a teaspoon of salt.

Probably in the printed version of the paper - the prints get more revenue.

Most newspapers won't give you the full newspaper online. They'll give you snippets here and there, and expect you to read the rest in print

Re: YOG in world's media

this is something to me

1. YOG is a success
2. singapore make YOG success
3. our elite make YOG a success
4. its just another 'creation of media' just like how it made the camera focus with only the people in the stadium to give others an impression that its crowded

US is just a country who still thinks have lots of power, in terms of military, social, economic

Unfortunately China's catching up and in fact I think US could be bankrupt if China withdraws all the money in US
