Quaker2001 Posted October 27, 2013 Report Share Posted October 27, 2013 Tom Hammond is still doing figure skating this year with Scott Hamilton, Sandra Bezic, and Tracy Wilson. I think this will be Tom's last Winter Olympics. He turns 70 next year, and he renewed his contract with NBC last year in a reduced role through 2016. He's not doing Notre Dame football anymore and is just focusing on figure skating, track & field, and horse racing. I agree that Terry Gannon will likely take over the figure skating coverage after 2014--he's more or less been the voice of figure skating in the U.S. since the mid-90s. It will be interesting to see who is going to do long-track speed skating this year--maybe Ted Robinson will pull double duty with short-track and long-track since none of the sessions overlap and the venues are next door to each other. A couple of them come pretty close to overlapping though, so I don't know how smart it would be for him to do both sports. Fortunately we should know soon enough since there is pre-Olympics coverage of both long track and short track, so I'm guessing whoever does that coverage will also be doing the Olympics, especially if it's someone other than Robinson who will have his obligations to the 49ers probably into January.
