With only three months to go until the start of the Summer Olympics in London, you can start getting hyped up about your favourite Olympian through an official social media portal that aims to link athletes to the fans.

The Hub is a space where fans will be able to connect with their favourite sports and athletes, and sports people themselves a chance to build their social profiles in the months before the event.

The Hub will feature a database of many current and former athletes’ Facebook and Twitter accounts – something that the International Olympics Committee hopes will allow athletes to increase their number of followers, and ideally raise their “influence”. For fans, the portal will be a one-stop shop for tracking down their favourite competitors’ tweets and get an easy glimpse into their preparations and their thoughts on the upcoming Olympics.
