As the world continues to celebrate the 2020 Japan Olympic games, one commentator has caught the eyes and ears of many. NEXSTAR reporter, Marielena Balouris, shared from Tokyo that “Adam Bobrow is one of the most colorful commentators at the Tokyo Olympics. And when you see him, you’ll understand why.”
Balouris explained that Bobrow is both an announcer and a competitive table tennis player. Additionally, the commentator’s love of the sport started when he was a kid.
When it comes to his job, Bobrow said, “As a commentator, I don’t see my job as just calling the games, I create the story. I get to find the context, I get to help people care about the athletes and get them emotionally invested.”
