CSUS Hosts Live Webcast of Junior Olympics

View Live Webcast

California State University, Sacramento and the Center for Advanced Technology at Syracuse University will be broadcasting round-the-clock, the first broadcast quality streaming video of the Junior Olympics when Hornet Stadium plays host to the 2001 National Track and Field Championships July 24 - 29.

Minimum viewing requirements for the webcast are a cable modem, DSL, T1 or ethernet in addition to Internet Explorer 5.0 and Windows Media Player 6.4 or higher.

Since 1998 graduate students at the Center have been using the latest technologies in streaming video to webcast track and field events around the globe. Most recently, students have completed the first streaming coverage of a national championship, an overseas track meet and the 2000 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, which were held at CSUS last July.

The Junior Olympics will feature an estimated 6,500 participants ranging in age from 8 to 18 and every event during the six days of competition will be available through the University's website at www.csus.edu.

For more information regarding the Junior Olympics call the Sacramento Sports Commission at (916) 264-7718, the Pacific Association at (916) 983-4622 or visit the web site www.sacsports.com.
