Each Olympic season our office rallies together and puts on Office Olympics. There are prizes for creativity/most spirited/best dressed group, winners in all individual events and one team champ from the team competition.
Dylan – team captain, not competing
Russia- WINNERS OF THE BEST DRESSED COMPETITION!
Pencil Javelin With a sharpened pencil take a nice long run-up and hurl it across the office. Automatic gold medal if it lands in the bin.
Target Shooting Contestants throw Sharpies at paper target from a fixed distance. Must leave a mark (on target, not contestant) to score. I WON THIS EVENT!!!
Coffee Mug Marathon Athletes carrying coffee cups filled to the brim must circle the floor at least six times. Winners are judged by a combination of fastest time and least amount spilled.
Team Event – relay style:
Leg one: Chair race – using feet only, no hands.
Leg two: Shot Put – throw a paper wad into a waste basket, no moving on until you've made it.
Leg three: Magazine Balance Beam Athletes prance across a straight line made with tape on the ground while keeping a certain amount of magazines balanced on their head.
Leg four: Hurdles Competitors race down a hallway (aka area in front of the mail boxes), leaping over reams of paper (low difficulty) and boxes (medium difficulty), or avoiding office chairs (high difficulty/rather stupid). Oh yes, all with boxes on your feet.
Very fun day, during work hours, might I add.
