Olympic skiing center back up and running
Dave Mazza, NBC VP of Olympics engineering say the Olympic Broadcast facility in Sestriere, Italy that collapsed on Tuesday is up and running after repairs were made to the structure.
The temporary facility is built on a metal support system in order to protect the golf course it was built on. The organizing committee said the temporary metal structure would remain closed for 24 hours while workers fixed the problem, which was noticed by people inside the building. The structure is elevated by a metal support system that organizers said had failed.
The broadcasting center in the games’ Alpine hub of Sestriere contains 80 TV studios. The much larger main broadcasting center is in Turin. Mazza says the impact on NBC was minimal as it doesn’t have much equipment in the facility.
