While London is gearing up to host the 2012 Olympics, British pop star Olly Murs is preparing his own version of the Games -- the 'Olly-mpics'! He'll take on his fellow band mates in some fierce and silly competitions, which are all suggested by his fans on Twitter!
Things got competitive when the "Heart Skips a Beat" singer challenged his band members to a game of table tennis. "It becomes close at a certain point and then you have to watch it. It comes down to an epic finale. It's like a TV series," Olly says.
The results? Let's just say Olly didn't take home the gold medal! "I did not win, which is pretty shameful, but you need to watch the rest. It's quite fun," Olly reveals.
We can't wait to see what outrageous athletic challenges Olly and his crew will take on in the rest of the 'Olly-mpics.' Be sure to follow the action on his official website and send a suggestion on Twitter (and hashtag #ollympics) to let him know which sport you want to see next!
Are you planning on watch the Olympics? How about the 'Olly-mpics'?
