Central Otago Mirror - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

I have had quite a bit of feed­back on my col­umn about the lack of freely avail­able cov­er­age of the Olympic Games last week.

Many of you agreed with me that it was dis­ap­point­ing. Oth­ers pointed to the ex­ten­sive cov­er­age freely avail­able on Prime. I ac­knowl­edge that but it was mostly early in the morn­ing and dur­ing the day when a work­ing mother such as my­self does not have time to sit down and watch tele­vi­sion. I only have a small win­dow of down time in the evenings when I can sit with a cuppa and catch up.

I still fondly re­mem­ber watch­ing the full triathlon in Athens when Hamish Carter and Be­van Docherty won gold and sil­ver. The ten­sion, the ex­cite­ment, the feel­ing that I was there with them - that is the kind of mo­ment I would like to share with my fam­ily.

Fi­nally, thank you to every­one who did re­spond. It is good to know you are read­ing! I look for­ward to hear­ing more.
