N. Korea belatedly broadcasts World Championships in Daegu


Dec 9, 2008
Reaction score
North Korea's state broadcaster on Sunday belatedly aired this year's World Championships in Athletics held in South Korea earlier this month, editing the footage to hide any mention of the host city.

In an evening sports program, (North) Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station showed clips of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships in Athletics held in Daegu, 300 kilometers southeast of Seoul, from Aug. 27 to Sept. 4.

A female announcer and a male commentator mostly introduced the final rounds of events, including the 100-meter hurdles, pole vault, javelin throw and men's 100-meter.

They also explained why Usain Bolt was disqualified for a false start in the men's 100-meter final on Aug. 28.

However, the broadcasting station deleted mentions of South Korean cities in subtitles, while putting its own station logo over the one for the original source of the broadcast.
