Answer our sports polls to win one of five official British and Irish Lions replica shirts!
Despite the inclement, unseasonal weather, the great British summer of sport is almost upon us. And this year is just that little bit more special with both a British and Irish Lions tour to Australia and a home Ashes cricket series to look forward to.
As sport has developed into a multi-billion pound industry, its relationship with technology has grown closer.
Last year, the London 2012 Olympic Games could not have been the success they were without the 12 technology partners at the Technology Operations Centre, which provided everything from ticketing systems to security for the Games’ organisers.
This summer, IBM will play a crucial role in the operation of the annual Wimbledon Champions at the All England Club, while Microsoft will be Official Technology Provider of the Lions tour, providing everything from analytics to Skype to let players contact their friends and families back home.
To celebrate this ongoing relationship between technology and sport, we will be running a series of polls throughout the summer to see if your sporting knowledge matches your technological wisdom.
There will be a new question every week for you to answer and we will also be giving away official British and Irish Lions replica shirts to five lucky readers.
All you have to do is answer our latest poll and provide the answer to a simple question, along with your details in the field below. All entries must be received by Midday 27 June, when five correct entries will be selected at random.
Good luck – and if you think you know your sport tech, then try our quiz!
This competition has now ended. We will be notifying the lucky winners very shortly.
