Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Sports Examiner?

The Sports Examiner is a unique site, devoted to being an all-in-one destination for worldwide coverage of international sports, focusing on who won, who lost and why.

Founded in 2016, the format of the site was changed in 2019 to provide daily updates as needed on the 41 sports, 62 disciplines and 441 events that are on the program of the Olympic and Olympic Winter Games.

Much more than simply results, the site features award-winning commentary from editor-in-chief Rich Perelman and our twice-weekly Speed Read news summary and weekly Stat Pack results archive (in PDF).

The Sports Examiner was recognized in 2018 with the Adam Jacobs Award for excellence in Online Writing by the Track & Field Writers of America.

How often is it updated?

The Sports Examiner is usually updated daily.

Rich Perelman's Lane One commentaries usually appear on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Our Speed Read news summary appears twice each week and our Stat Pack results archive (in PDF) is posted weekly.

What happened to the PDF format?

From its beginning in August 2016 through the end of 2018, The Sports Examiner was published as discrete issues, in PDF format. This was changed in 2019 to allow faster access to individual stories without waiting for the next PDF to be completed.

The weekly Stat Pack results archive is posted in PDF format for the use of those tracking actual results in a convenient-to-save package.

How do I sign up?

Subscribing is easy. Just go to our Subscriptions page and you can choose from offers starting at just one month (with a 14-day free trial!), or six months (with a free trial) a year (also with a free trial) or a group or corporate subscription for multiple users.

The semi-annual, annual and group and corporate subscriptions are all available at discounted rates from the base $10 per month price.

If you are interested in a package of 11 or more subscriptions, please contact us directly at

Subscribers can join by using standard credit card processing, or PayPal for those who prefer it.

How do I sign up for a group or corporate subscription?

We offer our best rates for group subscriptions of 3-5 people, or corporate subscriptions of 6-10, or more. To sign up for the group (3-5) or corporate (6-10) programs, one person needs to act as the group leader and subscribe to the desired program, making the required payment by credit card or PayPal. If you wish to use a check, you can do so (see the following FAQ), but we won’t be able to get you started until the check is deposited and payment is verified.

If you use a credit card for the payment, the group leader will be enrolled during the subscription process and then receive an electronic mail message with a Link (and a backup Code) that can be distributed to the other members of the group. If you sign up for five subscribers, the Link (and backup Code) will work four more times. For groups of 10, the Link (and backup Code) supplied will work for nine others.

In order for the others to activate their subscriptions, they will need to click on the Link provided to them and then set up their account. No payment will be due.

If using the Code, your subscribers will go to, and click on “Subscribe to The Sports Examiner.” Once on that page, they will scroll down to “Five Ways to Sign Up” and select “Sponsored Group Account.”

On the Sponsored Group Account page, please click on “Do you have a group code?” and then enter the Code. The Code holders will be able to enter their user name, password and e-mail address to receive The Sports Examiner.

The group leader will be able to manage all of the subscriptions from his or her account.

If you wish to obtain a quote for more than 10 subscriptions, please send the details through the Contact Us page.

What if I can’t use the online payment process?

Subscribers have a choice of using a credit card or PayPal for payments for your subscriptions and your subscriber experience will be easiest if you use one of these processes. However, if you desire to send a check or money order, you can do so.

Please make your payment to PERELMAN, PIONEER & COMPANY and send to Post Office Box 2368, Rancho Mirage, California 92270 USA. IMPORTANT: Please include (1) the first and last name of the subscriber(s) for whom the payment is intended and (2) a valid e-mail address for each subscriber.

Once your payment is received, we will open an account for each subscriber and send the login and password by electronic mail.

How do I log in?

Only subscribers can log in. Click on the "My Account" tab located in the navigation bar at the top of every page and then enter your User Name and Password you entered during the subscription process. Please note that your Password is CASE SENSITIVE.

Once you log in, you will see your account details and can access any post on the site from the menu at the top of the screen.

Your user name cannot be changed. You can change your Password by clicking on "Account Details” and we encourage you to do so. You can also check on your account status and other details from this screen.

What if I need to cancel my subscription?

Subscription services are easy to use and are all online. Subscriptions can be canceled at any time and all unused months remaining for the individual (e-mail) account being canceled will be refunded.

Do you have a Privacy Policy?

Yes, we do. You can find it here.

What if I have other questions, or a suggestion?
