NewTeeVee: “Usain Bolt Breaks Another World Record, and Footage Speeds Online” by Liz Gannes: 20 August 2009
Within a couple hours of Bolt crossing the finish line, more than 100 new uploads showed up in YouTube search. Generally taped off TV sets, the screen captures vary drastically in picture quality and commentator language. But by following a Twitter, Facebook, watercooler or TV mention, millions of us will know today to jump over to our video sites of choice and watch Bolt crush. For an under-appreciated sport like track and field, that’s pretty cool.
Unfortunately the official Berlin World Championships site has only a side-show video section, with daily highlight reels and interviews with the athletes. But thankfully, the International Association of Athletics Federations — or whoever they’ve sold the international TV rights to — don’t seem to be too interested in rapid-fire copyright takedown notices. So the videos on YouTube may just stay up.
