With Australia celebrating its best ever gold medal Olympics day, it’s probably not surprising that the Seven Network secured a massive proportion of Sunday’s TV viewership.
Highlights from the Games themselves obviously including Emma McKeown, who snared gold in the women’s freestyle and was part of the gold-winning relay too, while Matt Wearn won gold in the sailing and Logan Martin won gold in the Games’ first ever freestyle BMX comp.
It’s almost enough to make you feel patriotic – especially if you’re a Seven executive.
