How Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat are battling it out at the Olympics. Just before the Rio Olympics began, Twitter announced a suite of new features for engaging with and discussing the Summer Games.

By Alvin Chang on August 9, 2016 It's always tempting to watch the Olympics and wonder: Could I have been good at [obscure sport]?
The answer is almost always no — probably because most of us don’t have the work ethic, perseverance, and athleticism. But there's one other thing that really matters for most sports: your height. We’re not just talking about basketball or volleyball, where height gives you an obvious advantage. We’re talking about sports like sprinting, where it’s unclear how being a certain height can help.

Comme Londres en 2012, et ses 25 records battus, les Jeux de Rio ne feront certainement pas exception.
