The popular e-sports storyteller via social media Ibai Llanos will join Eurosport this summer to discuss the Tokyo Olympics, and specifically basketball, as announced this Thursday by the television network of the Discovery group during the presentation of its programming for the event. The popular 26-year-old from Bilbao, who has already narrated a football match, explained that for several years he went every weekend to watch Bilbao Basket play and that he regularly follows the Endesa League and the Euroleague, which is why he is considered a great connoisseur of European basketball, although he does not dominate the NBA so much.
Llanos is the most striking name of the network’s commentators, which has also introduced the technical director of Runner’s World Chema Martinez and the sprinter Angel David ‘The Bird’ Rodríguez as technical experts in Olympic athletics broadcasts with the narrator Antonio Alix. Eurosport also pulls sports legends to comment on team sports: Rafa pascual will analyze volleyball, the exporter Chus Rosa will be in charge of field hockey and his counterpart Jose Javier Hombrados will do the same with handball. And among the usual commentators they remain Alberto counter for cycling or Álex Corretja for tennis.
Every minute of the Olympics
Eurosport prepares complete coverage of every minute of the Olympic Games on its two channels and on its website, with special verticals on the web to broadcast all sports matches such as basketball or handball, in addition to 30 web channels to follow all sports and the use of virtual reality through the system ‘The Cube’ already used by Eurosport in its coverage of tennis in which athletes can be interviewed from Tokyo as if they were on the set itself.
Eurosport will share the coverage of the Tokyo Games with TVE, which has bought 400 hours of the event to broadcast all the Spanish participation and other highlights, without clarifying the details of its coverage. The schedule of the Olympic Games that are held between July 23 and August 8 will begin around 1 a.m. Spanish time and will last until approximately 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
