Skeleton may be the slowest of the three sliding sports at the Winter Olympics but, head down and just millimeters from the ice, we’ll bet it doesn’t feel it. At Beijing 2022, you can watch two different skeleton events: the men’s and women’s competition. Here’s how to watch every Beijing 2022 skeleton live stream wherever you are.
Beijing 2022 skeleton schedule

Hurtling down the track face first, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the skeleton is named after the chances of survival but the sport actually gets its title from the sled’s bony appearance. Skeleton riders can reach up to 81mph and experience up to a 5 g-force on the bends. Bear that in minds as they rocket around the unique 360-degree turn built into the Yanqing National Sliding Center.
Latvian veteran Martins Dukurs is one skeleton competitor you’ll want to watch out for. ‘Superman’ has the most World Cup titles in the history of the sport. That said, Christopher Grotheer is the early favorite to top the podium, with the German victorious at the last two world titles events.
The Winter Olympics skeleton takes place from February 7–12. Below you’ll find all the information on how to watch a skeleton live stream from the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, wherever you are in the world.

Watch the skeleton live stream with a VPN
There are so many events going on at the Winter Olympics that not every country’s TV and streaming coverage shows every discipline. If you can’t get the skeleton where you are, then you can use a VPN to tune into a live stream from another country – something you might need to do if travelling abroad.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home in the same country as the streaming service that you’re trying to access. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream – assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s fine print, of course.
