Experience the Winter Olympic Games in a whole new way with this interactive 360° panoramic video from Visa.

Feel what it’s like to ski the giant slalom, or ski jump across a football field. Experience the thrill of the halfpipe. Dance across the ice or score a hockey goal — you’ll get closer to Team Visa athletes by getting “in their shoes” during training.

Move the camera a full 360 degrees using your device’s gyroscope, or swipe the screen to shift the focus — look up, down, behind and to the side of the athlete and see what he or she sees while training, and hear in their own words what goes through their mind as they train for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

Toggle between cameras to change the point of view, then cheer for the athletes by sharing to your social profiles.
