Good news from the FIG: live broadcast of WCF and some IRCOS clips online!

Great news from the FIG today.
The World Cup Final will be broadcast live from Madrid on the FIG microsite for the WCF. Then you can always follow up with on-demand coverage from NBC Universal Sports.
The FIG Media Staff will also be posting live commentary.
Finally, the FIG is testing out an implementation of the IRCOS system on their Web site! IRCOS (Instant Replay and Information System) is the video system that allows for playback of routines so judges can review a controversial routine. Apparently they will post “a handful” of IRCOS clips online. If all goes well, this will become a mainstay of the FIG’s Web site during the 2009 World Championships.
