    The NBC networks have posted a schedule of daily highlights of the television coverage of the Athens Summer Olympic Games.

    Based upon the posting on NBCOlympics.com, there is scheduled television coverage of wrestling on all eight days of the Olympic wrestling competition from August 22-29. The wrestling action is planned for three specific networks: NBC, MSNBC and CNBC.

    Women’s wrestling is held August 22-23. Men’s Greco-Roman wrestling is held August 24-26. Men’s freestyle wrestling is held August 27-29.

    Included in the coverage are five different live segments of the wrestling action, three on MSNBC and two on CNBC.

    NBC has wrestling scheduled on its national broadcast five different days, including both men’s Greco-Roman and men’s freestyle action. NBC has also specifically targeted the Greco-Roman super heavyweight division, featuring defending Olympic champion Rulon Gardner, for primetime network coverage.

    Fans can check these program listings by visiting NBCOlympics.com

    The broadcasters assigned to wrestling includes Russ Hellickson (play-by-play), Jeff Blatnick (analyst) and Len Berman (reporter).

    This schedule includes just “highlights” of the coverage. These listings are subject to change. There could be additional wrestling coverage based upon the decisions of the broadcasting executives as the Games progress.

    There will be much more detailed schedule information as the Olympics approach, as well as during the actual Olympic Games. NBC has announced that it will have an Interactive Television Viewer’s Guide, which will be available by early August on NBCOlympics.com. It will provide 24-hour coverage on the NBC Universal networks. Viewers will be able to sort the listings by sport, network, day and time, as well as search by key words such as athlete, team or country. This will allow wrestling fans to know more details about when the wrestling coverage will actually be aired.

    The networks of NBC: NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, USA, Bravo, Telemundo and NBC HDTV will broadcast an unprecedented 1,210 hours – more than the past five Summer Olympics combined.

    ATHENS, Greece – The United States had been confident of coming away from the first Olympic women’s wrestling tournament with the maximum four medals. Now it can get only two, and even those aren’t a certainty.

    Patricia Miranda was the only American who didn’t lose Sunday on a disappointing but not entirely disastrous day for Team USA, which advanced Sara McMann into the semifinals despite a loss but saw star Toccara Montgomery done in by a terrible draw.

    Montgomery was matched with five-time world champion Kyoko Hamaguchi of Japan in a blind draw — a rematch of last year’s world finals at 158½ pounds (72kg) — and lost 8-4, costing her any chance of medaling.

    “It’s a hit for us,” Miranda said.

    oops…they did a typo…

    ” for a takedown on American Toccara Montgomery in their 105½-pound match Sunday. ”

    That should say 126 lbs. Patricia Miranda is in the 105 lbs weight class.
