Time Launches Olympic Site

To prepare everyone for all that the Olympics bring — cheering for people swimming back and forth in a straight line many times, being disappointed in athletes who are far superior to us — Time has launched a special site dedicated to the games.

Olympics.Time.com features a wide array of content, from 50 competitors we should all be watching to a slideshow packed with some great Time Olympic issue covers of the past.

“From now through the end of the Games, Time’s London bureau, led by Europe editor Catherine Mayer, will have daily coverage of the athletic and cultural phenomenon that is the Summer Olympics,” added Time.com’s managing editor, Cathy Sharick, in a memo.
