Racketlon WC 2012 (TV4 Sport)

Racketlon WC 2012

Today was a big day for Upright Sounds and sports history. The 2012 Racketlon World Championships took place in Enskede Rackethall, south of central Stockholm.

Racketlon is a combination of sports, just like Triathlon, in which you run, swim and cycle. Instead, in Racketlon each player competes in Table Tennis (ping-pong), Badminton, Squash and Tennis. Each sport is played for 21 points, and the grand total of points from all the events decides the winner.

Stefan Heino was on location, solely responsible for the sound, together with Motions producing the womens’ and mens’ finals. This became an unexpectedly complex production sound wise, using 14 microphones and a total of 28 channels for the live broadcast. None the less, with good preparations and planning this became a legendary production as predicted by Motions, and everyone were beyond satisfied with the broadcast.
