“There’s nothing like watching the athletes’ reaction and reaction time on the field of play,” said Jeff Bewkes, co-founder and CEO of Sportwatch.
“You get to see it in real time, and that’s what we are really excited about.”
The event will feature live video and audio from every participant and all the equipment on display.
“The best part of being part of this is seeing all the incredible moments from the athletes,” said Bewke.
“There’s so much emotion and so much talent on display.”
The sportswatch team, including Bewks and former athletes, is also working on the event’s design.
The sports-centric company will be bringing in a new CEO, and the company will start taking preorders in the coming weeks.
This year, the event will be streamed from across the U.S., including from the Olympic Village, which is located in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Georgia.
The event is expected to start airing sometime in February, with all participants participating in live-streamed competitions from the field, vault, floor, and beam.
The athletes will compete in two different competitions each week, the vault and floor competitions, while the vault is set to be a live event.
The two events will be held at a time of the day and place in the Olympic Games, with the vault scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. local time and the floor to begin shortly thereafter.
The Olympic Gymnastics Association (OGA) said it expects to spend $30 million on the live events.
