For two weeks, the Winter Games will be packed with excitement and intense competition in various sports like snowboarding, curling and skiing.

The 2018 Winter games in PyeongChang Olympics 2018 South Korea, are officially under way. Friday’s exciting Opening Ceremony kicked off what will be more than two thrilling weeks of intense competition between the best athletes in the world across a variety of disciplines with medals and glory on the line. The Olympics don’t come around often, which is why it’s best to watch as much as you can and even capitalize on them when a good betting opportunity arises. There will certainly be plenty of chances to wager during this Olympiad, which features over 100 events.

The United States has been a stalwart at the Winter Olympics, consistently finishing near the top of the medal table every four years. The country ranks second all-time in total medals with 282, behind only Norway and its 329 Winter Olympic medals. The USA representatives brought home at least 25 total medals in each of the last three PyeongChang Olympics 2018 Games, never finishing worse than second in overall performance. The USA even outpaced the field in Vancouver eight years ago by earning seven more medals than the next closest country.

Friday, Feb. 9 (Day 1)

Day 1 of the Winter Games will feature the Opening Ceremony at the open-air PyeongChang Olympics 2018 Stadium. The well-documented torch relay will potential showcase Olympic figure skating champion Yuna Kim, who retired after the 2014 games in Sochi. Kim, a PyeongChang 2018 ambassador, campaigned for the country’s 2011 bid resulting in the IOC members voting PyeongChang as the host city over Munich and Annecy.

Those anxious to get a head start should tune in on Wednesday, Feb. 7 to see mixed doubles curling and Thursday, Feb. 8 for the team figure skating event.

While no events will take place on Sunday local time, Saturday’s events will spill over to the early mornings in the United States. Here are the events on the final day of the Olympics.

The closing ceremony starts at 3 a.m. PT at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium. The flag will be passed by the mayor of PyeongChang, Seok-Rae Lee, to IOC President Thomas Bach and then to mayor of Beijing, Chen Jining.

Each edition of the Olympics offers a shining host city, compelling tales of athletic triumph, and an opportunity for news organizations to test out new storytelling technology with a meticulously scheduled global event.

The proud owner of the Games’ American broadcast rights, NBC has a combination of live/virtual reality video, a collaborative podcast with Vox Media, and of course Snapchat up the wazoo, thanks to NBCUniversal’s prior investment in the company.

On the NBC Sports VR app, footage is available to watch on VR headsets like Google Cardboard/Daydream, Samsung Gear VR, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets — or you can just watch it with your phone. (Tilt your phone to see more of the scene.) At the outset of the Games, it showed some behind-the-scenes of the crowd streaming into the stadium and Olympians preparing to compete — but do people watch the Olympics for the immersive experience or the breathtaking stories of sport?
