An estimated two billion people saw Usain Bolt live on TV smashing olympic record in 100 meter dash. Interestingly enough non of them where from the United States. While the rest of the world stop to watch one of the greatest actions in sports, NBC decided to save the footage for their prime time Olympic recap show on Sunday evening. The whole United States missed the event that lasted no more than 10 seconds and is one of the most popular events in the Olympics.
Thousands of desperate fans to see the 25-year-old set the track on fire again, four years after his superb performance in Beijing, took to Twitter to vent their anger, using the hashtag #NBCfail
"NBC has a 6 hour delay that is 3000 miles away. NASA has a 15 minutes delay for an event 15.000.000.000 miles away"
