/ NEWS: British Bouldering Championships 2019 Livestreamed on BBC Sport
On Sunday 7th July, the La Sportiva BMC British Bouldering Championships, supported by Clif Bar, will be livestreamed from Devonshire Green in Sheffield on BBC Sport for the second year running.
...and what Natalie has modestly declined to mention is that she will be competing!
Now that the BBC has banned non-licence holders from watching even iPlayer catch up, is there anywhere else we can view this at the time or afterwards? (Other than being there in person..)
You always needed a license to watch iPlayer didn't you?
You used to be able to watch catch up on iPlayer without a TV license, but had to have a license to watch live broadcasts.
Natalie climbed with such grace last year to claim bronze. Go team UKC!
Thanks! Not the best start today but through to semis so will see what I can do tomorrow
Is there a list of the people who qualified for the semi finals anywhere?
Nat qualified top of the tree from the semi's - nice one Nat!

it was shown on the BMC YouTube channel last year.
The small differences are stark.. Natalie missed second and remained in 5th failing to hold the last move on the last attempt on the last problem (but wins the best leggings award).
Was wanting to share a link to a catchup/on demand version of the broadcast and can't find it. Have the bbc actually not saved it anywhere for later access?
On an aside: do the comp rules mean you have to wear a white t-shirt?
From Alex Messenger omn the other channel:
"Hope you all enjoyed the livestream.
We'll be putting the file on the BMC YouTube channel in a few weeks. Hopefully the Beeb will also make it available in the meantime.
You have to wear the supplied shirt/vest - it's got sponsor logos on it.
Unless you're Nathan Phillips.
I can't seem to watch it and I have a TV licence!
It was only live on BBC Sport. Should be on iPlayer and the BMC's YouTube channel later.
Thanks for the support! Report to follow once my aches and pains subside ;)
The leggings are your colours, Offwidth - get a pair from Mountain Equipment!
Nat, boulder 3, absolutely incredible!!! You've really got it 👍😊
Thanks! Now to work on doing the ones others can do but I can't!
Our Friday Night Vido this week follows the climbing of Mickey Schaefer, put together from ten years of archive footage from Mickey's climbs. These days, Mickey is known as 'the guy who can't watch' from Free Solo, but his climbing career extends further...
