Speed Skating 2016 - 2017 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Meanwhile day 2 of the world sprint championships has started in Calgary, so fast times are to be expected. They have been posted already yesterday, for example in the men's 1000m which was arguably the best 1000m race in history: three men going well under 1:07 and Lorentzen :NOR and Ihle :GER staying slightly above 1:07 with (for them) superb times. Ronald Mulder :NED and Roman Krech :KAZ were fast in the 500 with 34.18 and 34.21, although nowadays there isn't really someone capable of really flying like Wotherspoon or Kulizhnikov (who is injured, sick, mentally unstable, etc).

 

Nao Kodaira is dominating the women's competition so far, winning both the 500 and 1000 yesterday, especially that last one is a great result for her. She was of course already the huge favourite and only a fall or huge mistake can stop her from taking the title today. In the Netherlands we're already cheering for a full-Dutch women's podium of Kodaira :JPN (Dutch team), Erbanova :CZE (Dutch team) and Bergsma :USA (Dutch husband) followed by Ter Mors :NED (Dutch passport) :p

Anyone got a live stream (legal) for the world championships?

 

Do you have Eurosport 2? They are broadcasting it.

:lol:

If we don't win, we have to find some other way right? :d 

 

Kodaira already learned how to say "I'm the boss!" in Dutch so that counts :evil:

Thanks!

First one doesnt work for a strange reason (Error loading player: No playable sources found), but at least its not geo restricted ...

Second one says "Voor deze aflevering geldt een rechtenbeperking. Het is daarom niet toegestaan om vanaf uw geografische locatie naar deze aflevering te kijken" ... i assume that means that its geo blocked? And no, i wont use Hola or an other proxy ...
