It's more noticeable this year because they have more total overall coverage (number of hours) than the last two olympics COMBINED. Combine that with limited number of events, you pretty much have to repeat it if you want to present a lot of Americans. They are even re-running hockey games during the day. For the cross country skiing, I actually saw some sprint events today. They were cool. They didn't take long. Really, I think the times were just a few minutes.
