Google has become well known for the “doodles” it features on its home page to celebrate special days or events, and they made no exception for the Olympics. In fact, they’ve even stepped up their game a little with, well, games.
Since the start of the Olympic games, on July 27, when Google featured an opening ceremonies doodle on its home page, the popular search engine has been posting a new Olympics themed doodle every day. The past few days, however, have been extra special.
Today, as well as yesterday and Tuesday, Google has featured playable Olympic doodles on their homepage. Tuesday you could try your hand at digital hurdles, Wednesday you could test your digital free throw skills and today Google lets you take a shot digitally paddling a slalom canoe.
The games are so much simplistic fun that we had to share them, just in case there was anyone out there who hadn’t had a chance to try them out.
To try them out just click the button that looks like a play button on a remote control for a DVD player and Google will show you what to do.
We can’t wait to see what digital Olympic sport we'll get to try out next.
