    I heard once that the man whose voice is on film trailes for block busters (or flops) recieves a million dollars per movie.
    I surfed a little bit and I found this:::

    But I had also something else in mind.
    During sport competition, especially Olympiads and swimming championships, I remember - ever since Montreal 1976 - I have always heard the same (I think the same, but in this case the man must be a kind of Phantpm with several generations) voice, a deep voice with American English as he was speaking so-called "special English": he had announced competitors, countries, performing of national anthems, medalists' names.

    Who is he?
    Anzone knows the name of the anonyme speaker on the Olympics and swimming championships?

    We probably need more than this.

    Point us to somewhere on the web where we can hear this voice.

    I don't know of whom V speaks, but in the USA there's Ted Williams, "the man with the golden voice."
