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!

The Javelin

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!

The Semi-Finals

The Final

The Hurdles

An office obstacle course like no other. Measured on time v spillage it is our take on the 110m Hurdles.

Rowing

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?!

T-Shirt Folding

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.

So that's it for another four years and considering that the next Olympics is in Japan we are expecting a super show. Did you compete in any office events or do you have a highlight from the 8ball office Olympics? Let us know on social media by hitting us up over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and don't forget that we are now all down with the kids as we have created a Snapchat account for your general viewing. We are the8balltees for those of you wondering!

To find new homes for these t-shirts with people who really need them, so they volunteered for the day at the Red Cross in Birmingham.
