The Australian Covers Olympics Online

The Australian online has just launched a new site for the Beijing Olympics called Beijing Now where they provide up to the minute footage and content about the Beijing Olympics.

Their is a loads of interactive content and videos on  the site already and each sport has it’s own section full of content specific to that sport (see gymnastics). There are loads of interviews/videos and photo galleries (check out the Overwhelming Smog in Beijing!) There will also be live medal tallies so you keep an eye on things.

Like all online publishing sites by News, there are commenting tools.

It will be interesting to watch these interactive spaces as we all know Aussies love their sport! I think it’s cool.
