Have you ever wondered what it would be like to compete against the likes of Michael Phelps, Rafael Nadal, and Shawn Johnson? Starting tomorrow, youth from all over the world will get the opportunity in the International Olympic Committee (IOC)‘s Best of Us Challenge.
In an effort to draw kids into sports again, the Best of Us Challenge is a global competition that lets individuals (like yourself) compete in offbeat challenges—egg tossing, cartwheels, juggling and holding tennis balls, among others—against their peers and some of the most iconic Olympic athletes of their generation. The Grand Prize: a four-day trip for two to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Vancouver and of course, bragging rights (you did beat an Olympic athlete after all!).
Visit the Best of Us Challenge website to find out how you can take part in the competition.
