Athletic Reporting with Sophora

Online reporting on the World Championships in Athletics had fail-safe support from Sophora CMS. At http://lawm.sportschau.de/, millions of users followed the competition online and kept up with the results and background information at the various events. Sophora provided a reliable accurate live blog, video livestreams and ensured perfect linkage of results, incoming news and background information.

The Northern German Broadcasting (NDR) is responsible for the broadcasting of the World Championships in Athletics within the ARD. The ARD’s website of the World Championship is broadcast in adaptive design and adapts to all common smartphones (Android, iOS) as well as iPads and tablets. The NDR implemented the website internally based on their long-term subshell CMS use. This was also the case for the ARD portal for the 2009 Track and Field World Championship in Berlin, the 2011 event in Daegu, 2013 in Moscow and 2015 in Peking; all ARD websites for these events were based on Sophora.
