The Lillehammer 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games will soon kick off with the Opening Ceremony—the first ever to be streamed live in virtual reality.
In addition to getting immersive views of the Olympic torch lighting and the Parade of Nations, fans can also experience the thrill of VR at three different Samsung Galaxy Studios at the event. Included are the VR Station, a theater-like venue where participants can virtually take part in winter sports in 4D, as well as the VR Bus. Here, attendees partake in an exhilarating, 360-degree ski jump simulation that takes them through the stunning scenery of Lillehammer, Norway.
On February 11, 2016, International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach, along with members of the IOC Young Ambassadors program visited the Samsung Galaxy Studio just ahead of the start of the Lillehammer 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games.
“Samsung is a dedicated Partner to the Olympic Movement and supports the IOC in engaging young people worldwide through its cutting edge mobile technology and passion for sports,” Bach said. “It is a pleasure to visit the Samsung Galaxy Studio here in Lillehammer and experience first-hand the virtual reality technology, which could be used at future Olympic Games as well.”
