Technology and Social Media Feature Strongly in Rio 2016
Over the four years since the London Olympic Games, technology has rapidly changed the way we experience sport. Technological advances do not only help run the event smoothly and get fair results, but also engage the audience like never before.
Indeed, the interactive nature of social media platforms allows athletes to share backstage photos from various sport events and also allowed spectators to be more involved with their favourite players. According to the official Olympics website, this year’s games will stand out with the introduction of underwater lap counters, cutting-edge GPS technology and even broadcasting the opening/closing of the Games in Virtual Reality (VR) https://www.rio2016.com/en/news/rio-2016-olympics-technological-innovations
