Video Coverage of European Masters Indoors – update #1


The European Masters Indoors are now under way, and video streaming is promised. An app must be downloaded (instructions given here) and then apparently you can either stream live or look at recorded events. The app is for Android and Apple only. I’ve tested the Apple one, it seems to work. For PC or Web, maybe when something is happening you will be able to see it by clicking on ‘Streaming’ on the EMACI website here (can’t see why it would be there otherwise). The UK times of the walks events are :

3000m Womens Tuesday 11:40 – 13:30
3000m Mens Wednesday 12:40 – 16:30
5000m Friday 9:30 – 12:50

and we’re yet to see whether coverage will be set up on the Casa del Campo, for the 5000m’s, as well as from the stadium for the 3000m’s.

Update #1 : it looks like there is also live streaming on YouTube, first day here.
