AUSTRALIA'S NINE PERFORMS: In Sydney, Michael Bodey reported that Nine’s Olympics coverage from London "continues to perform" with 1.7 million viewers tuning in for Tuesday's evening coverage, which included the men's triathlon final. The early evening session had 1.7 million viewers and the late night session had 764,000 viewers, in a time slot in which Nine "traditionally does very poorly." Ratings for Pearson’s Gold Medal win in the 100m hurdles "won’t be available" until Thursday as the ratings day concludes at 2am in Australia (THE AUSTRALIAN, 8/8).
GERMANY ON TRACK: QUOTENMETER.de's Jan Schlüter reported that "more than 6 million people watched Tuesday's track and field events."
