Google Olympics overload straight to your mobile

Are you heartily sick of the Olympics yet? If you can’t wait to see more of men and women in Lycra trying to beat their personal bests and the random drug testing, the Google is ready to help you do it from your mobile phone.

The search giant has come up with a load of features designed for Olympics fans.

From Google’s mobile blog:

We’ve launched a new mobile search tool that gets you sport results, country medal count, and event schedules right at the top of your search results. Go to www.google.com on your phone and try a search for “swimming.”

Once the events have begun, you’ll be able to search for things like “gymnastics medals” or “Russia medal count” to get updated medal counts and rankings in your search results as well.

Handy for those who haven’t suffered Games overload yet.

There appears to be a definite anti-Olympic sentiment on this here blog! Come on folks, get a bit excited. The Olympics are fab and mobile can make them more accessible than ever. Thumbs-up to Google for this!!

In a word… no. 🙂

If you think the Maldives authorities were a bit suspicious about Ewan's strange yellow box, just image how it will go down with the Chinese authorities on full alert…(!)
