Why do you thing the Paralympics aren’t as widely broadcasted as the Olympics?

“There are more people that compete in the Olympics. With it being larger, they have more friends and family watching as a support group.” – Erica Nickerson, ’20

“I feel like the athletes are less famous, so people would be less interested in general.” – Katie Hodson, ’20

“The motivation for NBC is to make money, and it doesn’t sell as much.” – John Kolberg, ’18

“The same reason why the Gay Games aren’t as broadcasted. The paramilitary is off-brand military, and the Paralympics are off-brand Olympics. Also, everyone can relate to the Olympics; they brand it more.” – Eric Bergomi, ’20
