As the 2014 Winter Olympics approach, Bing has you covered. Not only can you take a look at the event schedule and track and explore athletes, but you can also keep tabs on the latest medal tally.
“On February 7th, the opening ceremonies kick off in Sochi, Russia. Whether you’re a fan of curling or figure skating, bobsled or biathlon, giant slalom or hockey, Nordic skiing or all of the above, we’ve got you covered. Bing is your one-stop shop for the most relevant and up-to-date information on the Winter Games,” the official blog post states.
To get started, all you have to do is type the name of the event you are interested in (for example: “snowboarding”) and you will be shown a rundown of the scheduled events directly in the search results. You can track when your favorite athlete is competing as well – all you have to do is type their name into the search box.
Bing also allows you to explore athletes by showcasing the athlete’s career highlights in chronological order in a new timeline feature.
You can also keep tabs on the latest medal tally, along with a real-time count at the top of the search results page. Simply type “Winter Olympics Medal Tally” in the search box and you will be taken to the tally page.
You can even check out an official page on the Bing website dedicated to the 2014 Winter Olympics, allowing you to quickly find athlete profiles, event times, and more. Check out that website at www.bing.com/explore/wintergamesFurther reading: Bing, Microsoft
