Let the Games Begin!

With the 2016 Rio Olympic Games just days away, the eyes of the world are once again turning to this most paramount of sporting events.

Over 11,200 athletes from 207 nations will be participating in more than 300 events in 28 sports over the two-week period of the XXXI Olympiad, so it’s safe to say that millions of people across the planet will travel either to Brazil or their own TV rooms to watch the Games at some point. But what about the rest of us?

Becoming an Olympian may be your dream or your worst nightmare. Regardless of your talent, stamina, and commitment, what event would you even participate in? Not all of us are athletes, but we all have to be good at something, right?

One of today’s biggest viral hashtags got people excited for this Friday’s Opening Ceremony by having them finish the sentence “My Olympic sport would be… ,” and their responses are nothing short of hilarious.
