LAUSANNE: Braodcast rights for London 2012 in the 'secondary' sector of Latin America have been awarded by the International Olympic Committee to Grupo Albavision.

The package concerns free-to-air television broadcast rights and radio rights in Bolivia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Uruguay.

In August, Grupo Albavision provided coverage on the same platforms in these territories for the inaugural Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games.
 
IOC president Jacques Rogge said: “Following their successful coverage of the first-ever Youth Olympic Games this August, we are happy to be able to reach this agreement with Grupo Albavision to ensure free coverage of the Olympic Games in London in 2012 across the region.”
 
IOC executive member Richard Carrión, who led the negotiations, said, “I am delighted we were able to reach this agreement with Grupo Albavision and would like to thank them for their cooperation in making this announcement possible.”
