How it works

Participants take on classic Olympics sports such as: chariot racing, javelin-throwing, long jump, limbo, shot-put, discus, archery and (of course) roping sheep. Also included are more modern games such as jump rope, sack race, marshmallow towers, and egg race. The team with the highest score after successfully completing each segment is the winner, who will be showered with “gold” medals and crowned with olive wreaths. Key to victory: competitive spirit, willingness to try, sheer strength, team work, cleverness.

Olympics kit: Gloves, Chalk, Athletic Tape, Team Handkerchiefs, Race Bibs

Takeaways: Trophies, “Gold”, “Silver” and “Bronze” Medals, Olive Wreath Crowns, Novelty Prizes, User-Generated Photos, Olympics Yearbook
