2015 FINA World Cup Paris-Chartres: Day 1 Finals Live Recap

The 2015 FINA World Cup Series is unique because the athletes will be competing in a 50 meter poor rather than the series’ traditional 25 meter pool.

Today marks the start of the second stop of the 2015 World Cup Series and will be the last meet of the first cluster. In addition to the normal prize money available, there will also be an addition $300,000 split between the top 6 male and top 6 female finishers after the first two meets.

Livestream doesn’t work in U.S. any other links?

Google “bein sports france live” or something like that and you will find some links.
Or search links on live stream sports websites. Easy to find.
Can’t post them here.

But I still don’t understand why it doesn’t work in USA if these world cup meets are not broadcasted on any US TV channel. Here in France that’s logical, I’m watching live right now on Bein Sports so the FINA live stream is not available.

It didn’t work 🙁

There’s an American broadcast of beIn that carries swimming World Cup and select Diamond League athletics meets wedged in among the soccer coverage, but it’s not widely available or known over here.

As expected an easy win for Metella in the men’s 100 free in 48.69. Definitely the most consistent French swimmer in that event this year.
Schneider was well ahead at the 50 in 23.03 but died in the last 25 and finished 2nd in 48.91.
Stravius 3rd in 48.93.

CVDB still in shape with a 26.74 win in the 50 breast.
