The OC will provide the necessary supplementary access devices to the Mixed Zone, while the appointed Finish Area Co-ordinator will manage the Mixed Zone activities with attending media.

There will be an established order in the Mixed Zone for RHB’s, with the first position being offered to the rights holder of the host nation.

The OC will establish the best possible layout for the Finish Area depending on the available space and their drawings will include a number of specific media zones that can be defined as follows:

Partitioned TV Boxes or live Announce Positions where attending RHB’s will conduct their presentations with their own on- site production facilities. Typically they integrate their own cameras with the feed from the HB to customise their show and provide the network with a strong venue presence. The TV boxes are positioned at the beginning of the Mixed Zone, so the athletes may pass into them as they make their way down the corridor.

There is a written and formal procedure for post- race interviews, although some variations apply depending on the event, host nation and event. As a general guideline, the following procedure applies for all alpine ski racing events:

  • Between the end of the race and the podium presentation, only the HB and the attending TV networks with live unilateral facilities are allowed to conduct short interview s with the top three skiers. This will enable the podium presentation as part of the multilateral feed to take place without delay.
  • The broadcaster from the winner's home country will be the first to interview the skier. Should the top three skiers ranked belong to the same nation, the attending live broadcaster must decide the sequence of their interviews with the help of the Finish Area Co-ordinator.
  • The ENG crews however will need to ask the Finish Area Co-ordinator for the athletes they would like to conduct an interview with.
