Olympics

I just watched the FEI video. The dressage horses have touched down in Tokyo. I was surprised ( maybe not) that Isabel Werth flies on the cargo plane with her horse. Apparently she always does this.

Good luck to everyone and may the Games begin!

I’m loving all the social media posts from the Canadian riders. It’s fun seeing what things are like behind the scenes.

Thanks for the heads up on the video! It is amazing. Isabel is something! Shipping is so scary. I felt such a sense of relief when they were unloading in Japan, just like I feel when my own horses arrive somewhere safely!

I was fascinated watching the process, and also “surprised (maybe not)” re: Isabell. :smile:

Does anyone know when the ride times will be announced?

There are riders I’ll get up at 1 am to watch, but not many!

Does anyone know if they will be available to watch after the fact, or just later in the day? I’d love to watch but I have AM plans-- that don’t involve getting up at 4 AM! :sleeping:

Times are listed o NBC Olympics site. Don’t know about replays.

As the streaming wars have heated up in the past decade, NBC decided to throw its media might into Peacock, launching the video streaming service in July 2020. It currently has 42 million subscribers, with on-demand libraries of television shows, movies and original programming.

Live gymnastics, track and field action and all of Peacock’s Tokyo Olympics programming will be available for broadcast on the free tier of Peacock. But if you want to watch live games played by the U.S. men’s basketball team, you will have to fork over $4.99 a month for Peacock Premium. The live events on Peacock are also available to those pay-TV subscribers with streaming options on a variety of devices.

I can’t see myself watching at 4am so I hope the livestreams will be recorded and available to watch any time

Cross our fingers that everyone else stays sound or we won’t have a team.
