Now the answers:


(1) What is The Sports Examiner?

The Sports Examiner is the only publication which is solely devoted to the wide-ranging world of international sports, focusing on who won, who lost and why.

Founded in 2016, each issue to sent directly to subscribers by electronic mail in PDF format, which can be read online, or downloaded and read anytime, anywhere on computers, tablets or mobile phones.

Our coverage spans all 41 sports, 62 disciplines and 441 events featured on the program of the Olympic and Olympic Winter Games, with a special (but not total) focus on American athletes.


(2) When does it come out?

The Sports Examiner is published three times per week, 50 weeks per year, and delivered in PDF format by electronic mail to our subscribers.

Additional issues – The Sports Examiner EXTRA – will be sent to subscribers as needed to provide comprehensive coverage of major events like the Olympic Games or world championships such as the 2017 FINA World Championships in swimming or the 2017 IAAF World Championships in Athletics.


(3) Who writes it?

The Sports Examiner is written primarily by Rich Perelman, an award-winning organizer of mega-events including the Olympic Games, Olympic Winter Games, Pan American Games, Special Olympics World Games, World University Games, the centennial celebration of the Statue of Liberty and many more. He was the Editor-in-Chief of the Official Report of the Games of the XXIIIrd Olympiad and is a long-time members of the Association of Track & Field Statisticians, Track & Field Writers of America and the International Association of Olympic Historians.


(4) Why is it in PDF format?

While quality online access is getting better, it’s not perfect. By sending The Sports Examiner in PDF, subscribers can download it and take it with them for easy reading on a laptop, tablet or phone. In fact, about half of our subscribers read TSX on their mobile phones!

Moreover, by packing all of our coverage into a single, easy-to-use document in a universal format, you don’t have to go clicking through a dozen or more stories to find what you’re interested in. Just check the Table of Contents on page 2 and head straight to the sports you want to read about first … or scroll through at your leisure!


(5) How do I sign up?

Subscribing is easy. Just go to our Subscriptions page and you can choose from offers from just a couple of months (to see if you like it), up to a discounted annual rate, or group or corporate subscriptions. Subscription service began on 15 January 2018; there are 18 prior issues you can view as samples from before that date, but access to all older issues is only for paying subscribers. Access to new issues is now limited to subscribers only.


(6) 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. If you wish to use a check, you can do so (see FAQ 8), 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 TheSportsExaminer.com, 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.


(7) What if I signed up to receive The Sports Examiner during the free testing period?

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