Alpine skiing is an interesting sport to watch. This year, there’s even more reason to turn to the sport. No less than two Dutch comments in action in alpine skiing: Adriana Jelinkova and Maarten Meiners . This is remarkable, because it is the first time since the Olympic Games in Oslo in 1952 that Dutch alpine skiers participate in the Games .
Adriana Jelinkova participates in two parts: the slalom and the giant slalom. A day after she qualified for the Games in 2021, she tore her cruciate ligament. She was out for 10 months , but still managed to get fit in time. On the same track where she was injured, she took her first World Cup points last month.
Maarten Meiners also had an exciting preparation. He did not meet the requirements of NOC*NSF, but “on the basis of special circumstances” he was allowed to go to the Games. Due to the corona pandemic, Meiners was disadvantaged in his preparation compared to the top countries. Ski areas, for example, only remain open for their own national teams. This ensured that Meiners did not have an equal chance for an optimal preparation, and NOC*NSF ultimately upset the heart.
The two Dutchmen therefore ‘just’ participate in the Olympic Games. Jelinkova will be in action for the first time on Monday, February 7 at 03:15 am , Meiners can be seen for the first time on Sunday, February 13 at 03:15 am . The downhill skiing starts earlier; The first final will take place on February 6. Want to see all of this sport? Read the full articles, where we explain exactly how to do this.
Where can I find live Alpine skiing broadcasts?
Many sports can be seen at the NOS . This channel focuses on Dutch athletes, and may only broadcast one sport at a time. Not all alpine skiing competitions can therefore be seen live on the NOS.
Eurosport (including via the Eurosport Player livestream) and Discovery+ do broadcast everything live. Unfortunately, these are pay channels. In addition, both streaming services are only available within the European Union, even if you have a paid subscription. This is of course inconvenient when you are abroad.
Free live streams of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics
Some streaming services broadcast everything from the Olympic Games live and free. Examples include CBC , 7Plus , and BBC iPlayer . A more complete overview can be found in ounces article about the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Unfortunately, many of these live streams are not available in the Netherlands . For example, CBC is only available in Canada 7Plus in Australia and the BBC iPlayer in the UK .
Based on your IP address, websites identify you online and see that you are outside the area where the streaming service has broadcasting rights. Therefore, the stream is not available to you.
Bypass this only with a VPN connection. A VPN gives you an IP address of a country of your choice, for example England. At the same time, the VPN hides your actual IP address. Based on just ‘new’ IP address, websites and streaming services think that you are in that country (in this case England). This way you get to see the online offer that residents of Great Britain also have at their disposal. This means that you can still watch the BBC iPlayer livestream, even if you are in the Netherlands!
