Olympic Storytelling from IOC Recognised with Sports Emmy Awards Nominations

Original Olympian-led documentary-films produced by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) – The Redeem Team and 72 – A Gathering of Champions – have been honoured with a host of nominations for the industry-leading Sports Emmy Awards. Longstanding Olympic Media Rights-Holder (MRH) NBC Universal has also been recognised with 10 nominations for its dynamic coverage of the Olympic Games Beijing 2022.

72 – A Gathering of Champions, an emotive four-part series produced by the Olympic Channel and Mark Ciardi and directed by Emmy-award winner Jonathan Hock, which sees Olympians relive both the personal triumphs and unimaginable tragedy they experienced during Munich 1972, has also been nominated for Outstanding Documentary Series.

Combining remarkable restored film footage and new personal accounts from the athletes whose lives were deeply touched by the events of this time, each one of the four, one-hour episodes explores different stories and perspectives from the Games, including from the likes of record-breaking swimmer Mark Spitz (USA), athletics stars Mary Peters (Great Britain) and Heide Rosendahl (Germany), and gymnasts Karin Janz (Germany) and Olga Korbut (USSR). The final episode in the series focuses on the tragic terror attack against the Israeli team during the Games, which shook the entire world.

In addition, the wider Olympic Movement has also been recognised, with NBC Universal receiving 10 nominations for its coverage of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, including a nomination for Outstanding Live Special.

Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said: “NBCUniversal’s presentation of the Beijing Olympics dominated across all platforms and once again showed that nothing captivates Americans for 18 consecutive days and nights like the Olympic Games.”

The Sports Emmy Awards recognise outstanding achievement in sports programming, with these nominations further demonstrating the IOC’s commitment to telling compelling Olympian-led stories that inspire and engage people around the world.

The winners of the 44th Sports Emmy Awards will be announced by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) at a ceremony in New York on the 22nd of May.
