The Olympics officially kick off in London today with the opening ceremonies, reminding everyone that it’s a good time to get your sports on. And now it will be easier than ever to relive your favorite moments in sports history.

Hark and Sports Byline USA will be making more than 17,000 hours of sports interviews and show clips available online, so you can search, share and relive all that sweat and glory.

As sports coverage continues to be some of the Internet’s most searched and popular content, the companies are “aiming to bring an unparalleled library that spans more than 20 years of athlete interviews, including clips from almost every significant sports figure past and present during that time” to their database.

The ink has barely dried on this deal, signed this week, but reps have assured us that they’re working through the archived content, and will be clipping from past and ongoing content. In the meantime, for live coverage, listeners can head to Sports Byline, and users can also access its podcasts, such as “Wrestling Observer Live” and “World Soccer Radio” by heading over to the site.

Of course, the upcoming weeks of Olympic coverage will provide countless hours of new record-breaking and amazing entertainment, so they will also be adding clips from the London games as well as other Olympic-related highlights from past games.

Go Team USA.
