Shaun White, Ted Ligety and others share first-person views


If you ever wanted to see an Olympic-level course through the eyes of top athletes including Shaun White and Ted Ligety, this video takes you as close as you can get without risking a jammed wrist.

(There’s a chance it might make you a little dizzy, though, so be warned.)

This isn’t the only instance in which you can enjoy these events from a different perspective. For instance: Ligety gave NBC a very dynamic look at his giant slalom strategies heading into the Olympics.

You can also step off the courses and take more personal looks at what the athletes are experiencing, from their arrivals to some unusual takes on what it’s like to be in Sochi.
