    yes, Z was Cram/Hutchings; the bad guy was on Berlin feed.

    In his defense, he was working solo and I have some empathy for somebody who is trying to keep track of multiple plot lines at the same time.

    Zagreb was a Hutchings solo effort. Berlin was definitely someone else.

    In the Berlin NBC SportsGold replay he says his name (at about 1:38) but I cannot hear it clearly enough.

    I'm surprised. He's usually better than he was yesterday.

    i tend to cut track announcers some slack. It is not an easy job, especially if not track oriented and given insufficient background information. But, I do appreciate the gooduns.

    The guy's major problem was not in dealing with multiple plot lines; it was his poor presentation of every one of those plot lines. He apparently did no homework at all in preparation for the meet. Introducing World and Olympic champions without mentioning those credentials (or any credential other than athletes' personal and seasonal bests, which presumably were on the start lists in front of him) is inexcusable.

    Cram and Hutchings are very good...so was Adrian Metcalfe and a couple of other brits back in the 70's and 80's...and let's not forget the Finnish commentator of the 1971 European Champs 10,000, which was won by Vaatainen...it's on Youtube.

    I suspect that the announcers you're talking about are locals who do stadium announcing at local HS and/or college meets. I would not cut the same slack for someone doing an international tv feed distributed by major outlets.

    I think his name was on the screen at the beginning of Olympic Channel's telecast. I still have my DVR recording so I maybe I can check it later.
