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 Lane One commentary from editor-in-chief Rich Perelman, a monthly Stat Pack results archive (in PDF), a twice-a-year calendar of hundreds of major international and U.S. domestic events and our free TSX Report e-mail.

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 twice per week, on Mondays and Thursdays. Our TSX Report e-mail is also sent twice each week and our Stat Pack results archive (in PDF) is usually posted monthly.

How do I sign up?

It's easy! You can sign up to receive our free TSX Report e-mail directly to your inbox here. You can cancel at any time by hitting the "Unsubscribe" button at the bottom of any e-mail.

All of the content on The Sports Examiner is free to view. You do have to sign up to receive the TSX Report e-mail as noted above. It's free too!

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