Magic behind Telemundo's out of this world gol calls

Ep. 1458

Telemundo's World Cup coverage features nothing but pure emotion. Essentially, its broadcasters deliver the game in its most lively form. From rapid buildup commentary to seemingly unending golazo calls, the play-by-play voices are spectacular.

One of those is Sammy Sadovnik, a Peruvian by birth who now calls game with Telemundo. He is one of the lead voices in Telemundo's World Cup coverage. At the 2022 World Cup, he was the voice behind Croatia's penalty shootout win over Japan, Uruguay's heartbreak in the group stage and Argentina's win against Poland.

He talks about what this World Cup is like. He is one of the commentators to use the 'Goooooool' calls following a team scoring. Sadovnik even hit 17 seconds in one instance. The broadcaster discusses the physical challenges that come with broadcasting, but how it is all worth it in the long run.
