The Great Retro Olympics!: Gymnastics

2008-08-14 14:03:00·  2 minute read   ·  Chad Concelmo

Watching gymnastics is the most stressful thing on the planet. I tell myself I love it, but then when I watch I do nothing but freak out the whole time in fear that the poor people on the dangerous equipment are going to hurt themselves. Case in point: the other day one of the women gymnasts on the American team flipped around the uneven bars, missed the all important grab, and, no joke, landed right on her face. HER FACE!

This is why I play videogames. No chance of serious injury.

Lucky for all of us (and our faces!), today’s Gymnastics event of the Great Retro Olympics! involves just answering trivia questions about special moves and power-ups in retro videogames. There is no hanging, swinging, vaulting, or balancing required.

Just leave your answers in the comments and check my community blog tomorrow (8/15) for the dramatic results.

Powder up those palms and ... good luck!
