The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games are finally here! Over at Yahoo!, we have a big reason to be excited about this galvanizing event for people around the world. In addition to keeping fans on top of the action with a Games-dedicated website, today we’re launching a new Olympic mobile site at m.yahoo.com/olympics.
It’s the place to go when you’re out and about and want up-to-the-minute coverage on this year’s Games. You’ll get access to everything from live results, upcoming events, medal counts, and photos to news, expert commentary, and more—all from your phone. We’ve also integrated Olympics into our mobile search results, so you can easily find what you need fast.
If you’re a fan of Lindsey Vonn, you can do a quick search and we’ll show you her athlete profile, which includes how many medals she’s won, her most recent headlines, her latest results, and even her birthday. (It’s October 18, 1984, by the way.)
The new Olympic mobile site is available in English for 13 different countries, including the U.S., Canada, the Philippines, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
We hope you’ll check out our Winter Olympics mobile experience. You can get a preview in the video below. Be sure to give us some feedback in the comments section below!
