In-Game Olympic Festival

The fantastic Beijing Olympic Games has finished and it was truly a grand festival for all human beings. Watching the gallant closing ceremony, I was wandering what the next Olympic Games will look like in London.

 

During the closing ceremony, the International Olympic Committee president, said: "New stars were born. Stars from past Games amazed us again." Most of us aren’t willing to make the sacrifice necessary to become a gold-medal athlete like Phelps (8 gold medals). However, we do have different ways to enjoy the event, besides watching the TV.

 

Quite a lot of MMOs hosted Olympic-themed events for their players to feel the Olympic atmosphere during the August. Personally I found Conquer Online’s Olympic Athlete Pose Competition was really hilarious. In this event, players edited in-game screenshots to look like Olympic competitions, and some of the pieces are both exceptional and creatively inspired. I would like to post some here to let others enjoy them. Also, you can find more funny pics on the official site.


Hurdles, reminding me the poor Liu Xiang (a Chinese athlete who could not attend his track and field events due to an injury)


Swimming, can Phelps win in the world of MMO?
