Following the Olympics with IFTTT

IFTTT

Considering the relatively enormous quantity of mediums for Olympic coverage, it has become an oddly difficult task to simply keep track of the latest events. Stepping up to help, IFTTT has announced its support of ESPN Olympics Coverage.

With support for all countries involved in the Games, IFTTT can send you (or save to your chosen service) gold awards, score updates, and world record notifications without any human intervention whatsoever. Given NBC’s evident penchant for tampering with Olympic broadcasts, such raw information may prove very useful for the busy Olympics enthusiast.

The initial ESPN Olympics recipes are available from IFTTT’s dedicated page, but “Browse” will reveal a great deal of novel solutions as well.
