    Olympic Sweeps, with thanks to Rogue...Jedi

    Like other Sweep games that have gone before in the Arena, this is another easy way for you to win colours. However, this one is slightly different to the others.

    8 people will be allowed to sign up. You will then be allocated a lane on the track and in the pool for 8 seperate Track and Swimming Events, with different lanes for each event. After each final has been completed, you will receive 3 points if the person in your lane wins Gold, 2 points if they came Second, and 1 point if they take Bronze. The points will be added up over the course of the Olympics. For every three points that you get, you will receive a days worth of colours after the last event is completed.

    The events that will be considered are as follows

    Track and Field

  2. 100m Men (16/08/08)

  3. 100m Women (17/08/08)

  4. 400m Men (18/08/08)

  5. 200m Women (21/08/08)



  6. Swimming

  7. 400m Freestyle Men (10/8/08)

  8. 100m freestyle Men (14/08/08)

  9. 200m breaststroke Women (15/08/08)

  10. 50m freestyle Women (17/08/08)



  11. The quicker you sign up, the quicker I can allocate you lanes for each event. Get Cracking!

    (Note - I will endeavour to update the Lane Numbers with competitors before the finals are run, however that will not always be possible. Anyone who is able to do so would be welcome to.)

    As I've said, I'll endeavor to update these lane listings with their competitors before the finals are run/swam. If you're online and have access to the final orders, feel free to update them.

    So now we play the waiting game. Good luck to all participants.

    I was close with my predictions - Zhang came second in place of Hackett.
