In watching the TV coverage of the Winter Olympics from Salt Lake, I have
noticed that speeds are often reported on the screen for some events. In
particular, the NBC coverage was showing instantaneous speeds of athletes
in speed skating while they were racing. How are these being measured?

Curious Olympic fan,
