LONDON (AP) — If NBC wants to show Usain Bolt's 100-meter victory on tape delay, the IOC says that's up to the network. NBC broadcast the race on television hours later in prime time, frustrating fans accustomed to watching action as it happens and sharing instant reaction through social media. On Monday, International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams deflected criticism aimed at NBC, which is the biggest financial backer of the Olympic body. With Bolt chased home by teammate Yohan Blake and former Olympic champion Justin Gatlin, the 100 fulfilled its billing as the main sprint showdown between Jamaica and the United States. Other track and field finals shown later by NBC included the women's 400 in which Sanya Richards-Ross won the first American gold medal in the Olympic Stadium.
