One of the biggest concerns I have right now is not about keeping up with the Summer Games in Beijing in terms of information and results, but how on earth Vancouver will be able to live up to the spectacle witnessed during this year’s opening ceremonies (mostly since ours will be held indoors).
Aside from that, we’ve been following the Olympics when we can during our trip to Kansas City. At random rest stops in hotel rooms during the day we’ll catch some water polo or basketball, but overall I’m missing quite a bit of the action that I have been glued to in past years. Actually, it’s even difficult to see a lot of coverage when we are in front of a television since NBC pretty much only shows events in which the USA is participating as well.
I’ve searched around a bit for some blogs, twitters and Flickr photos (most of which are coming from Kris and Scales) but here are some other bits of coverage from the social media realm.
– Robert Scales gives some on-the-ground blog posts over on the BBC.
– The Sports Corner is a collection of local journalists and sports enthusiasts have been liveblogging events on their group blog.
– Daily Vancouver 2010 coverage, starting years in advance they have some updates about this summer’s games in Beijing.
– Tony and his team are doing a great job on the LA Times blogs as well.
You can Google several other sources however if you already have a website or blog you’re watching for Olympic updates, please feel free to share a link in the comments.
