About Us

The Sports Examiner is designed to provide all-in-one coverage of the top-level competitions in international sports which are featured on the program of the Olympic or Olympic Winter Games.

Our new coverage concept, inaugurated in 2019, is completely free to view and includes our unique commentaries – Lane One and The Big Picture – plus special coverage of Athletics, Aquatics and Gymnastics. Reports on the other sports on the Olympic program – from Archery to Wrestling and Alpine Skiing to Speed Skating – are grouped together.

Plus, we offer special features you won’t find anywhere else, including our twice-a-year Calendar of major international and U.S. domestic events. And you can keep up with all of it by signing up for our free e-mail service, the TSX Report.

Our primary interest is in what happens to athletes, their performances on the field of play and how they are impacted by what happens off the field. There are other, excellent sites that cover the latest sponsorships, television deals and the business of sport. We’re interested in who won, who lost, how, why and what will happen in the future … especially at the Olympic Games.

Although we have a special interest in American athletes, we also cover events which have no U.S. participation at all. Our goal is to keep you informed about what is going on before, during and after the world’s greatest sporting event, the Olympic Games.

The Sports Examiner has been recognized for its excellence in coverage, as the recipient of the 2018 Adam Jacobs Award for Online Writing by the Track & Field Writers of America.
