International Skating Union (ISU) Long Track and Short Track Speed Skating Live on the Web

Just a quick reminder that ISU's website streams some speed skating, depending on broadcast blackouts. As I write, the long track speed skating men's 500m is on. Soon the short track may be available too.

The specific link for the long track event on now is...

http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesuite.net/isu/site/index.html?video_id=9693

To check schedules, you can use the following site, but be careful with any links there and don't download .exe files or fall for ads which mention you don't have the right codec or video player. Check your downloads directory after you're finished, too! Having said that, sometimes you can find feeds for events that no USA broadcaster has purchased.

Human-Powered Circumnavigation by Pedalboat, Bike & Inline Skates (Rollerblades)

I'm so glad someone is living some of our dreams for us as we live some of theirs for them!

Jason Lewis is a British trekster (supertrekker some say) who has spent part (all?) of the last 13 years circling the earth by pedalboat, bike and inline skates, often joined by a friend on his journey. It seems the goal is to use neither wind nor motors in his quest.
