1) NBC Olympics

We find this source extra useful when getting live sports news, although some features of the app can’t be enjoyed on the website version. NBC Olympics has its own live news feed, which shows the highlights of each competition that’s happening at that moment. Did we mention it’s updated constantly? Look at that screenshot!

2) BBC Olympics

Now you can find a menu option entirely dedicated to Rio games on BBC Sport. If you would like some humor on your live news feed, then make sure to check out the live reporting on the [Live] Day “x” section. 😉

3) Rio official games’ page

Of course you can get live sports news here as well. But, if there’s something to highlight about this website, that is the detailed information they provide. Quickly find out more about the team or athlete that is competing. Go to the “burger” menu – on the right upper corner of your screen – and choose an event on “Right Now”, to see minute-by-minute updates, previous results, stats and more. You can also find extra information about the team or athletes you’re rooting for on the “Athletes & Teams” section.

4) ESPN Olympics

Like BBC, ESPN has added a Rio games section. And getting live results here is a piece of cake! Just tap on the “Results” menu option and choose the date and sport you want to find out about. If the competition is happening, then you’ll see an “In progress” message next to the sport category.

5) Olympic.org

Check it out now and plan your days off before Rio games are over. 😛
