YEKATERINBURG, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Yekaterinburg office of the Yandex company, operating Russia’s most popular search engine and its most visited website, has presented a new project, which should allow all Russians to follow the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in the online mode, Viktor Lamburg, the deputy head of Yandex’s Media Resource Department told a news conference on Thursday.
He said the project aimed to provide information about the Olympics to the maximum number of people.
Yandex’s designers in Yekaterinburg created a product called Winter Games-2014 located at http://o14.yandex.ru/. The service provides copious information of all sorts about the Olympic events in Sochi, including a schedule and results of the competition, the Olympic favorites as well as details and interesting facts about each kind of sport.
For people who have never particularly followed sporting events, Yandex will suggest whom to support, what the main intrigue is and who the most important favorites of the Games are. Besides, Internet users can “take a walk” through the Olympic Sochi. New panoramic images of the Olympic city will show Yandex visitors the beauty of the Olympic objects alongside several hundred kilometers of Sochi streets and roads.
According to the designers of the project, the service will be available not only in Russia but also in Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. However, there will be no English version of the product. Specialists said there were no such plans. For user convenience, there is a mobile version of the product, available and adapted for all modern gadgets and systems.
The service will not be closed after the Sochi Olympic Games and will serve as a basis for similar projects in future.
