Can you believe that it is over already? Two weeks, five events, a few tears, mainly from the cameraman and 15 medals. But it is over, the 8ball Office Olympics has come to an end. It will be another four years until we see all of your favourite faces from the offices take part in paper airplane javelin throw offs, office length rowing races and the dreaded Office Olympics obstacle course aka the hurdles. Now that it is all over we can finally be friends in the office again…
Just in case you’re wondering what we are talking about, have you been hiding under a rock for the last two weeks? Forget that event that took place somewhere in Brazil, the 8ball office Olympics has been THE event of the summer. But don’t worry dear reader as you can find all of the highlights below including the illustrious Closing Ceremony and medal handout. Look out for our impressions of our favourite Olympic celebrations too!
Take nine people, nine sheets of paper and a lot of competitive spirit and you have our first event, the paper airplane Javelin.
Dunderball (inspired by The US Office Olympics)
Our second event was so eventful it comes as a two parter! Inspired by one of our favourite shows at 8ball HQ, The Office US, it's Dunderball!
An office obstacle course like no other. Measured on time v spillage it is our take on the 110m Hurdles.
Row, row, row your chair gently down the 8ball office. We didn't have a river to row our way along but we do have a grey floor... so that is close enough right?!
The creme de la creme of the 8ball elite took part in the highlight of the 8ball office Olympics competition. Doing one of the many, many things that we 8ballers do best, it is the T-Shirt folding races.
The Closing Ceremony
As it all came to an end we received our medals, shook hands and are finally friends again! Here is a highlight of the competition along with the awards ceremony.

Now that the Christmas adverts have started, we’ve finally entered the festive season. This may mean that it’s time for Christmas songs, manic shopping, and cold weather. The good news is that it’s also time for classic movies on TV. To celebrate this we’d thought we’d look at where the actors of yesteryear are now. But not the Bruce Willis’ and Macauley Culkins, but the secondary actors we loved.
It’s been over a year since we last visited the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, so we thought we’d create a little refresher for everyone. Be aware that MASSIVE SPOILERS are contained in the blog, so if you haven’t seen the first season be wary about reading on.
With a new movie just around the corner, I've been taking a look at Ridley Scott's classic, Blade Runner. After 35 years do you remember all the important bits from the original? If you need a refresher or are seeing the movie for the first time, I present a beginners guide to Blade Runner.
