Some interesting media info from T.R. Foley, of InterMat, regarding viewership of wrestling at the Olympics.

8/5/2016

foley@intermatwrestle.com, Twitter: @trfoley, Instagram: Trfoley37

The opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games are tonight, which symbolizes a time for the world to finally, maybe, if-only-for-a-moment, celebrate the Games. Brazil has sacrificed a lot to put on these Games. From perilous health conditions to evictions of long-time residents, the Games brought a mixture of darkness and light to the Brazilian condition, which one can only hope ends in societal improvements.

I'll be heading down to Rio with a good-size media team from United World Wrestling. We will be creating content throughout the day to both help our current fans connect with their stars and help new fans find a way into the sport. We will be posting interviews, stories, photos, videos, and lots of social media content from now until the end of the Games, and likely beyond.

One thing to keep in mind is that viewership counts. For sports like wrestling there is a lot at stake these Olympic Games. This is the first Olympics with a well-matured online presence featuring thousands of hours of live sporting content viewable online and on TV. My guess is that with a lot on the line, wrestling is about to shock the Olympic world.

And here's how we do it:

Download the NBC Live Sports Application and tune into ALL the wrestling events you can for as long as you can. Aggregate minutes matter. Wrestling has been very quietly breaking records and with even more attention given to viewership I think we might be able to shatter some preconceived notions about the sport's popularity and reach.
