Yahoo! to Cure Our Olympic Fever!

Posted by @ 11:16 pm

Want to know just how many medals the United States will have won in the Beijing Olympic Games by this time next week? Well Yahoo! will have the answer for you!

To help us try to keep up with the 302 events that are being held at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Yahoo have announced a series of shortcuts in Yahoo! search which lead to real-time Olympics results and news coverage.

For example, a search for ‘Olympics medal count’ will bring you results similar to this (once the games actually start):

If you want to know the medal count for just one country, let’s say New Zealand, then you can search for ‘New Zealand medal count’ to get their medal tally.

So if the Olympic fever catches you and you want to know how well your country is doing, then Yahoo! Olympic shortcuts just might be the thing to cure your sports craving.
