Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 20 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 21, 2008 35 STREETVIEW Good sports on coverage Celeste Barnett Angela Roman Paula Luland Ashley Leotta Robert O'Donovan Some people don't care too much for the Olympics while others make the time to watch as much as possible. With the Games nearing the end, we took to the streets of Five Dock to ask locals which sports they preferred watching and who was providing the best coverage. Celeste Barnett, of Haberfield: My family tries to watch a bit of everything. We get stuck watching the cycling because of my husband but myself and the kids prefer the gymnastics. It's a good sport and I also think Channel 7 is doing a good job covering it all. Angela Roman, of Five Dock: The swim- ming and the diving is good, oh and the gymnastics is fantastic. We have been watching the Olympics this time round more than when it was on in Athens. The time difference also helps because we can watch it live. Paula Luland, of Five Dock: I watch the the swimming, although I can't watch the synchronised swimming, I can't cope with their facial expressions. I want anyone but the Americans to win. I actually try and watch it whenever I get the time, particu- larly the swimming. Ashley Leotta, of Five Dock: I am watch- ing all of the sports, in particular the swimming because I used to swim when I was younger. I think the coverage is a bit biased to the mainstream sports. If you don't like swimming and the athletics it might be an issue, but I actually flick between Channel 7 and SBS who seem to cover all sports and are unbiased. Overall I'm happy with it this year. Robert O'Donovan, of Five Dock: What- ever is on at the time I watch and it has been pretty good. They're showing too much of the Australians on Channel 7 and I want to see the best of the world. I have also been watching it on SBS which has been terrific and the panoramic snapshots are great. I actually never expected it to be so good.
