Bing Launches New Winter Olympics Search Features & Counter To Track Gold Medals

bing-2013-logo-featuredWith opening ceremonies just two days away, Bing is upping its search game for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Now when Bing users search on specific sports and athletes the search engine will include Olympic-related schedules and content in its search results.

The site has also launched a “Winter Olympic Medal Tally” to track the countries and athletes winning the most gold medals.

To find Olympic event schedules, users only have to search on a specific sport to see an overview of scheduled events in Bing’s search results. Searching on an athlete’s name will deliver their event schedules as well.
