I’m re-posting the schedule for the World Championships as I’ve had a couple of requests. Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian will swim the prelims of the 100-meter freestyle at 1 a.m. (Pacific time). The semifinals are at a much more reasonable hour, 9 a.m. Wednesday. You’ll see Nathan’s schedule of events listed below as well.
Here you go:
Wednesday, July 31: 9 a.m.-11 a.m., LIVE, Universal Sports (100 free semifinals)
Thursday, Aug. 1: 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m., LIVE, Universal Sports (100 free finals)
Friday, Aug. 2: 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m., LIVE, Universal Sports (50 free semifinals)
Saturday, Aug. 3: 10 a.m.-1 p.m., NBC; 6 p.m.-8 p.m., re-air, Universal Sports (50 free finals)
Sunday, Aug. 4: 1 p.m.-3 p.m., NBC; 6 p.m.-8 p.m., re-air, Universal Sports (400 medley relay)
*NOTE: All times have been changed to reflect Pacific time
As far as online live streaming, there’s a couple of websites to check out. Universalsports.com is the U.S. feed with Dan Hicks and Rowdy Gaines. You can also try FirstLowLive (Europe) and vipboxonline.eu. FYI, you do NOT have to download anything with those last two links. Just click out of the advertising and you should be OK. I watched the 400 free relay on one of the European links, and after a bit of figuring out on my part it worked great.
I was also able to watch the universalsports.com stream, but they cut away from swimming to do updates and that was kind of annoying.
