The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games , one year late due to the pandemic, are already underway. To bring everything that happens in the different competitions closer, the work of sports narrators and commentators , both from TVE and Eurosport , is essential. corporations that hold the broadcasting rights of the most complete event in world sport.
Among those voices, the figure of Paloma del Rio stands out , who faces her last Olympic Games in Tokyo. The veteran communicator thus responded to a tweet by Gabriel Lopez, a TVE journalist: “When the Olympic Games are over, we will continue to cross paths through Torrespana for a few more months, but yes,These will be my last Olympic Games .” The voice of the journalist, closely linked to the Olympic exploits, will go down in history. Her extensive career has led her to be present at eight summer Olympic Games, six winter Olympics, four Mediterranean Games and more than one hundred World and European Games. Her passionate and indefatigable voice has been mainly linked to rhythmic and artistic gymnastics .
TVE has other charismatic narrators, of whom only by listening to her voice we know what sport is being broadcast. They are Carlos de Andres , who is in charge of road cycling, how could it be otherwise. The emphasis and knowledge about handball is provided by the unmistakable voice of Paco Caro, which has accompanied numerous deeds of ‘the Hispanics’. And Nacho Calvo is once again the voice of tennis.
As it is an Olympic Games, the competitions are diverse and TVE’s team of narrators is completed as follows: Amat Carceller (athletics), Joan Carles Garcia (water polo), Jesus Cebrian and Diego Martinez (men’s and women’s basketball), David Figueira (football), Julia Luna (swimming), Arseni Perez (open water, field hockey, canoeing, rowing, judo and wrestling), Eva Aguilera (jumping, weightlifting, fencing), Paco Grande (mountain biking, BMX and cycling in track), Jaume Palomar (taekwondo, sport climbing, skateboarding and surfing), Javi Lopez (badminton, karate, horse riding and shooting), Alberto Sierra (beach volleyball), Pere Ferreras (table tennis) and Virtudes Fernandez (triathlon). Among the absences, that of Juan Carlos Rivero is surprisingin soocer. The host of Estudio Estadio, who narrated the gold medal at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 , is not among the members of the team that TVE has moved to Tokyo.
A figure that has gained importance in recent years is that of the technical commentator, a position that is usually occupied by retired athletes (many of them with Olympic medals). TVE has opted for the voices of Perico Delgado , Albert Ferrer , Almudena Cid , Gervasio Deferr , David Cal , Gemma Mengual , among others.
RTVE will offer 400 hours of broadcast, live and recorded, to bring the Tokyo Olympics closer to Spanish homes. The main competitions with Spanish athletes in competition will be broadcast by La 1 , while Teledeporte will host the rest of the broadcasts.
