    NBC Sports and Universal Sports to Broadcast 2010 Paralympic Winter Games Highlights

    GE To Be Presenting Sponsor of NBC Sports and Universal Sports’ Broadcast of the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. and NEW YORK– NBC Sports and Universal Sports announced today the multiplatform broadcast coverage of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games presented by GE. Coverage on NBC Sports will include a one-hour program recapping the Opening Ceremony on Saturday, March 13 (1-2 p.m. ET) and a two-hour highlights program on Saturday, April 10 (3-5 p.m. ET).

    In addition to the coverage on NBC Sports, Universal Sports will broadcast a nightly two-hour show for nine straight nights dedicated to the daily competition of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games starting on Monday, March 15 at 6 p.m. ET (re-air at 11 p.m. ET) and continuing nightly through Tuesday, March 23.

    Additionally, UniversalSports.com will offer on-demand re-airs of the Universal Sports television coverage, plus full-length event “rewinds.”

    The official site of the U.S. Paralympic Team, U.S. Paralympic Team, will also offer daily video and news highlights of the competition from Vancouver.

    “The extensive coverage on NBC Sports and Universal Sports helps to raise the awareness of the Paralympics by telling the stories of these remarkable athletes, and demonstrates NBC Universal’s commitment to the Olympic movement in the United States,” said Gary Zenkel, president, NBC Olympics.

    “We are thrilled that fans of Team USA will be able to stay connected to all the action in Vancouver and follow the accomplishments of Paralympians from throughout the world,” said Scott Blackmun, U.S. Olympic Committee Chief Executive Officer.

    The Paralympic Winter Games is an elite sporting event for accomplished athletic champions spanning five different physical disability groups. Emphasizing the Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration and equality, the Paralympic Winter Games showcase participants' athletic achievements rather than their physical disability in five sports: alpine skiing, biathlon, cross country skiing, sled hockey and wheelchair curling. In Vancouver, a total of 600 athletes from approximately 40 countries will compete in these five sports.

    Paralympic Broadcast Schedule on NBC Sports and Universal Sports:
