Tokyo 2020 was a watershed Olympics for CBC digital products. For the first time in years we brought the digital offering in-house, ditching the white-label product.  Join us to learn the UX challenges of creating an Olympic website that seamlessly integrates into the CBC digital ecosystem but still provides a distinctive big event experience.  We will discuss how we built on our knowledge of both CBC and Olympic users and applied iterative learning through cycles of usability testing and sketching.
