The 2012 Summer Olympics are underway. The USA have been winning medals here and there. Although most individuals are aware of the 2012 Summer Olympics, they may not be as aware of the Globe Olympics.
Globe Olympics began July 30and run until August 13 here at the Sioux Falls Campus. Each day there have been activities in the student lounge. Students compete daily for the best time in a variety of minute to win it games. At the end of each day the times are verified and the fastest time receives a gift card, not a gold medal but still a pretty good deal.
Staff and faculty have also been involved in Globe Olympics. Teams have been formed and the gauntlet has been dropped. There were two days of competitions, August 1 and August 8. Each team competed in target “shooting”, coffee mug marathon, paper plate discus, and trike races.
The Globe Olympics are not are as well-known as the Summer Olympics, we have some great competitors.
