Olympic Channel in Six New Languages

Featuring Olympic stars and stories from across the globe and continuing the excitement of the Olympic Games all year round, the Olympic Channel is now available in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and Latin American Spanish in addition to English.

The launch of the six additional languages yesterday on the Olympic Channel represents the first non-English languages to be added to the global digital platform. The Olympic Channel also plans to release four additional languages in the coming months including Arabic, Japanese, Korean and Russian versions.

“This is a great way to reach more people around the world and to tell the great Olympic stories in a way that connects directly to them,” said IOC President Thomas Bach. “The launch of the Olympic Channel platform in multiple languages ensures that more fans around the world will be able to discover and explore stories that will help them to connect with their favourite sports and athletes in their own language.”
