Guys, read this link http://gizmodo.com/the-inside-story-of-how-olympic-photographers-capture-s-1521746623

AP and Getty pros all shoot JPEG exclusively at the Olympics and get amazing photos. RAW is not the only thing that pros use.

This makes sense as there entire focus is the speed at which they can get it to print. Not only is there no time to process raw files, but they have to send the files back over hot spots and dedicated internet feeds, so smaller file sizes are necessary to facilitate the transfer of heavy loads of images going back to base. This is a situation where it just makes sense.

So can you tell me how many professional photographers are at the Olympics shooting JPEG please?

Easy, they have to. It is a matter of transfer speed over the internet and getting the photo to print. This is a very specific need, and not to be confused with most types of photography. Getting it published first is the name of their game.
