Olympic season is here again.
I’m sure you’ve got out your old short-shorts and sweatband, done your stretches and prepared yourself for the weeks to come. Not that sitting in front of the TV all day will help break a sweat, mind you those bathroom breaks are way too short… so much to do, so little time.
Whether you’ll be watching from your couch, favorite bar or sitting in the stadiums, it’s going to be an action-packed event. Twenty Six sports in seventeen days, incredible opening and closing ceremonies, emotional prize presentations and of course, lots and lots of beautiful bodies… what’s not to like?
Before we go on, we have to take a quick look in the history books.
(cue dramatic music)
In 1912, Baron Pierre de Coubertin (otherwise known as the father of the modern Olympic Movement) designed the flag for the Games. It still remains the same today, those five interlocking rings, coloured blue, yellow, black, green, and red on a white field.
Each ring represents a different region of the world, the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania. Now isn’t that a handy bit of information.
In case you haven’t realized, we love the Olympic Games and so we had to give it a Fiverr twist. We’ve decided to shine the spotlight on different Gigs from each of these regions. Some will help personalize your Olympic viewing experience, some will help improve your athletic skills and some will just make you smile.
So, enough with the chit-chat, let’s get straight to business. Here are 5 Gigs to customize your Olympic experience, starting with with The Americas:
1) That’s one flippin’ cool Gig (USA)
There are a few ways to deliver a message: in person, by phone, or even strapped to a pigeon’s leg. However, few compare to the ever-so-flexible Matthewdowney20. Why not surprise your friends with a message delivered by Matthewdowney20 as he performs flips and stunts?!
2) PIN-terest, the old fashioned way (USA)
Galaxygirl will help fast forward your journey to Olympic fan-dom with collectible pins. As she explains, they are an exciting way to show Olympic spirit and an excellent conversation starter. Wear ‘em, trade ‘em, collect ‘em!
3) He aint no mermaid (Argentina)
Swimming is one of our favourite Olympic events. When you’ve had enough of looking at Speedos, you can focus your eyes elsewhere. Rubikart will help you transform an average Olympic viewing party into an aquatic delight.
4) Mmmmm… beer (Uruguay)
Remember that time Homer Simpson coached the hockey team? Or the time he almost became a boxing champion? Well, that’s our way of saying this Gig is in no way connected to sports. Eliana93fer will do a great job transforming you into those Simpsons characters that we all know and love.
Need a cheerleader? If the hot blonde in the short skirt and pompoms is not available, Abcdawg is the right guy for the job. (Ladies, here’s a little tip, for his Gig Extra™ he’ll sing with his shirt off *wink*).
Well there you have it. Five Fiverr-tastic Gigs from North and South America. Remember to keep visiting the Fiverr Blog to see more Gigs from other regions.
So excited for the games and can’t wait for the beach volleyball tournaments! What are you excited for?
