Are you ready to see the world in an athlete’s shoes? To run the long miles, to throw the javelin, to cycle round and round? Well, you are in luck.

According to The Drum, The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Intel today announced a long-term technology partnership which will focus primarily on infusing its 5G platforms, VR, 3D and 360-degree content development platforms, artificial intelligence platforms, and drones, along with other silicon solutions to enhance the Olympic Games.

Intel 360 replay technology will allow fans to experience the most memorable Olympic moments from every angle at the Olympic venues. In the future, TV viewers at home will be able to experience what it’s like to be at the Olympic Games with a front-row seat.

IOC president Thomas Bach said: “Intel is a world leader in its field, and we’re very excited to be working with the Intel team to drive the future of the Olympic Games through cutting-edge technology. The Olympic Games provide a connection between fans and athletes that has inspired people around the world through sport and the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect. Thanks to our new innovative global partnership with Intel, fans in the stadium, athletes and audiences around the world will soon experience the magic of the Olympic Games in completely new ways.”

What a cool development! Any way to see how strong these people are is a pro for me.
