TV coverage is horrible for canoe/kayak events. shame on NBC! The one sport that is fast, furious and dangerous, and they ignore it! Beach Volleyball got full coverage! What a freaking joke.

It's an event where neither the US or China are favored to win so it's not worthy of TV. If it does get any normal air time check CNBC they have had boxing on there for the last couple days. Otherwise you might be able to catch it at 1 or 2 in the morning.

Is there any way someone would be able to tape it & somehow post it?...I don't watch a whole lot of TV & have never bucked up to pay for cable or satelite. But would luv to see some footage.

I believe I read that every event will be streamed live and archived on the internet.
