The Best of Us Olympic Challenge

Get in on the challenge to take on Olympians at some neat activities like picking up more tennis balls than Raf nadal or Hula Hooping longer than Lindsey Vonn.  Throw down one of their challenges or create your own.  This is a great challenge to keep up long after the Olympics and something a school or PE class might be able to do. There are even prizes to be won like a trip to Singapore for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games. Have fun and be safe.



Welcome to the IOC' Best of Us Challenge, where Olympic athletes challenge you to compete in some truly unique events. Just enter a video and you?ll be eligible to win some great stuff: posters, t-shirts signed by Olympians, official Olympic video games?even a trip to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver or the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games. Check out the challenges at thebestofuschallenge.olympic.org or at youtube.com/thebestofuschallenge
