With the Winter Olympic games in PyeongChang underway, why not get all the latest action direct from South Korea, beamed straight to your smartphone.

Here’s something to get you in the mood for some serious snowsports action.

The App

The Team GB Winter Olympics App has been designed to keep us Olympics fans right up to date with everything that’s going on for the duration of the games, 9th-25th February.

It’s essentially a news app first, with almost up to the minute notifications and updates. Great news if you’re keeping your eye on specific athlete’s medal hopes, and don’t have a TV around to be enjoying the action on.

You can also learn about and read up on all the different sports, and which GB athletes are competing and when. This app will soon become your favourite companion if you love all things Olympics.

The Features

So, what’s on the app? In a nutshell, pretty much everything you could need. Get the latest news, rounds-ups and daily previews, and generally all the information you could want about our guys and gals competing in the games. Access and receive:

  • Medal alerts
  • Athlete profiles
  • Sport profiles
  • Event schedule
  • Medal table
  • Fan voting
  • Team GB supporter selfie filters

As the notifications come through, you’ll be able to quickly share any medal wins straight from the app onto your social media. Making you one of the first to share the breaking news.

Read up on your favourite athletes, with information on all 59 British competitors, and find out about our homegrown heroes.

There’s some great stuff for all the family to get involved in too, from polls to quizzes. There’s something to keep you entertained and test your Olympic knowledge.

And of course, no app would be complete without some obligatory selfie filters to show how much you’re supporting our Winter Olympic hopes.

British Olympic Association, Commercial Director, Tim Ellerton, commented on the new app saying: “We are constantly looking at ways to engage with our fans and the app that Visa created during Rio 2016 was a huge success, which provided brilliant up to the second updates and information.” He continued to say: “…we’re excited to develop and extend the scope of what the app can offer to fans and it is great to be able to share the app today in the build-up to PyeongChang 2018.”
