With over 3500 starts, “Julklappsjakten” by GKIK is Sweden’s largest youth indoor track and field competition. For the 38th year in a row (5-6 of December), young athletes from all of Sweden got together during a weekend at Friidrottens Hus, Gothenburg to compete in a range of disciplines.
It was a great success both from a sports and spectator point of view, with lot of friends, family and relatives in place to follow the contest live. However, as always with this type of event with participants travelling from far away, unfortunately not all interested have the opportunity to follow the competition on site.
To address this GKIK together with Spiideo in collaboration with Solid Tango, was this year very happy to be able to provide remote viewers full live stream coverage of the event, from 4 simultaneous channels showing races, events, interviews etc. Over 6000 excited viewers were following the live streaming from remote during the days, and were able to experience the success and achievements of the athletes.
