NBCOlympics.com, two specialty channels, and the first-ever 3D platform, an unprecedented level that surpasses the coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics by nearly 2,000 hours. Telemundo is the only Spanish-language station that will carry over 170 hours of games. This nearly equals the total coverage broadcast by NBC for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics (176.5). Telemundo's coverage will begin at 6 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. This makes perfect sense since people need to watch their novelas.

Here's something to put into perspective. Cuba leads Central/South America (Spanish-speaking countries) with 67 gold medals and 189 total. The United States has 929 gold medals and 2,302 total. Come on Colombia...you only have one gold medal.
