I’m sitting here watching the Olympics. Not all geeks like the Olympics. I on the other hand embrace the games. The US female gymnastics team dominate the field and win gold, Michael Phelps winning his record breaking 19th medial (congrats on the achievement!), yea this all get’s my blood pumping.
I was thinking however how the Olympics would look with zombies. I’m thinking a whole lot different.
The Human Events
Archery – Done with zombies instead of targets. In this not only are you judged by getting a bulls eye (right between the eyes), but the target will probably shake and move around a little as well.
All dashes – Done with zombies in the chase of course. A closed course would be required, trapping the athletes in their lanes with nowhere to go but forward.
Hurdles – These would be more interesting. The hurdles would not be traditional hurdles, instead debris would be falling that the athletes would have to jump and climb over to get away from the zombies chasing at their heels. Disastrous results if you can’t make it over that burning car.
Shot put, Javelin, Discus – The field has zombies in it. Your throw doesn’t count unless you take one down. Farthest zombie knocked down counts to your score.
Marathons – would be run like the 5k zombie runs we are becoming more and more failure with. But this is the Olympics. Those would be real zombies, and no three lives to save you. One bite and your done.
Boxing , Judo, other Fighting events- You no longer face your opponent one on one. Now you compete to see how many zombies you can take out with your hands.
Competitive shooting – All target events would be more like the description for archery, but even better because the zombies would be let loose now you test all ranges in the same event because in order to survive it you would have to take every walker down. Skeet and trap events would remain the same so that they represented your ability to hunt birds in the apocalypse.
The Zombie Events
These events would be more to just have fun.
The One Legged Race – Chop a zombie’s leg off. See how long it takes him to get to the finish line.
Bobbing for humans – They don’t need to breath, they can wait in the water all day for their next meal.
Zombie Duel – Tie delicious meats to the necks of 2 zombies, watch the rip each other’s heads off for just a taste.
