Brazil’s influence stands out: 34% of the visits went to Globo Sports and UOL Esporte (first and third spot in the ranking, respectively) in this category.

Another interesting fact is the classification of the sites visited: on the one hand, users chose to consume sports content through specialized sites (ESPN, Minute Media, Marca, AS, OLE) and, on the other, through the sports sections of horizontal portals such as Globe, MSN, UOL, Terra.This would account for two different kind of users: on one side, the sports categories’ “genuine” user (the one who would visit sports media exclusively) and on the other, the “spontaneous” user, who takes an interest in Sports section while going through other sections  of the same site.
