No idea. They've had it before, and since they've done live feed & interviews when the top male & female pros crossed the line, the equipment and technology is clearly there already. And I would think the majority of people tuning in couldn't care about the pros, but a just trying to watch/track friend or family member. The athlete tracker update thing is always at least a half hour to an an hour behind the actual race (which I find mind boggling, given that each racer wears a chip thing that the sensors at the checkpoints read when they cross the checkpoint). I'm sure lilbro, given his usual race times and the times he has posted so far today, finished the race at least a half hour or more ago. I am just waiting for the page to update to find out his final standing.
