IceNetwork reports that the 2008 U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame inductions will air on NBC on Sunday, August 3 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
As part of the broadcast coverage, viewers will be treated to competition footage as well as insights from friends and competitors of the honored legends who will be inducted into the exclusive group of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic greats.
"Having the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame broadcast again on NBC continues what we believe to be an excellent platform to recognize the great accomplishments of some of America's most recognized sports heroes," said USOC Chief Executive Officer Jim Scherr . "With the Beijing Olympic Games just days after the 2008 U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame broadcast airing, this summer's Olympic-oriented programming will be some of the most watched in history."
Be sure to tune in to see Brian Boitano inducted, along with a posthumous induction for Carlo Fassi and veteran category induction for Carol Heiss Jenkins.
