Serious question: is it any easier to watch track in Norway? A ton of US events are behind paywalls and when they are on tv they're not always on NBC, they're on NBC Sports or the Olympic Channel. In Norway can you just pop on the tv and find track on a popular channel?
I think so. No way over 3 MM people (70% of population) paid to watch Ingebrigtsens run. It's just that it's a small country and it is a big deal there, they are popular in their country, therefore mainstream tv.
