Hey there, sports fans!
Are you excited for the Summer Olympic Games? I know I am! There’s nothing better than kicking back and watching the best athletes in the world duke it out to bring their home turf some glory – and hopefully a gold medal!
As a big sports fan, I know I can’t wait to see what happens this year. Will Ryan Lochte best teammate Michael Phelps in the pool? Will Jamaica’s speed-bullet Usain Bolt sprint his way down the track to a new world record? Ooooh, who knows! Lucky for us not-so-patient folk, the 2012 Olympic Games kick off their Opening Ceremony in London tonight, July 27th! Tune in!
To celebrate the international sporting extravaganza, the Summer 2012 Z-lympics have arrived in Zwinktopia! Running from July 27 – August 14th, Zwinks from all over the world can gather at the Splash Stadium and host their own competitions. Not channeling the competitive vibes? Take a seat in the stands and watch the games!
To get you into the athletic groove, the Z-lympic kiosk awaits by the stands to help you gear up for the games. Don the Vball Champ uniforms and serve the beach volleyball across the net. Dive into the pool with the Bathing Beauty synchronized swimming suit or the Relay Briefs and swim to victory like Team USA’s Missy Franklin and Australian James Magnussen!
Are flips, twirls, and spins more your style? Score a perfect landing like USA’s Gabby Douglas or Japan’s Kohei Uchimura with the 5 Rings Gymnast gear! Bolt to the finish line in 200 Meter Dash uniforms! Become a Z-lympic Knockout or Wrestle Maniac, a Weightlifting Wonder or a 2012 Soccer Star! Grab your BMX Bike, ride to victory, and score that Z-lympic medal!
Fearful of competing before crowds of Zwinks? The Z-lympic kiosk has gear to help you make your own games, right in your dorm! Create your own archery tournament, gymnastics routine, volleyball game, or sailboat race. Compete with your friends and stand in victory on the Z-lympic Medal Podium!
To celebrate the arrival of the Olympics, how about a call for some Z-lympic pix? Are you planning to sprint, spin, dive, or serve your way to the finish line in some friendly competition? Take a snapshot, and we’ll include them in a fantastic slideshow right here on the blog! I’d love to see how you plan to celebrate the biggest sporting event of the year!
Here’s what to do:
- Create ONE pic of your Z-lympic adventures.
- EMAIL your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Znotes and blog comments will not be included in this round up, so make sure to email anything you’d like us to consider!
- Put your username in the subject line.

Or, are you a movie-making sort of Zwinkster? Show us the competition! We’d love to add your Z-lympic videos to our YouTube playlist!
