UPDATE; This event has now completed. If you're interested, please see the second event in the series HERE
On the heels of the 'Old Mans Crack' challenge meet-up, Danny and I had also floated the idea of a GTA Online Olympics. After hitting the community up for ideas, we collected and bunch and are gonna give this a go.
If you're interested in participating please let me know if the day/time is ok and that you will be attending. The first 14 people will be accepted. (need 2 slots for camera peeps). Missed out? Many more to come... (see end of post)
Proposed Date; Thursday January 30th – 6pm EST, 3pm PDT, 11pm UK
Here's the first three events;
Compact Sumo - Vehicle sumo wrestling on top of Maze Bank Tower. Contestants are placed on the top of the building with an Issi. They battle until one falls off. Best 2 out of 3 and we have heats until a champion is crowned. (Hat Tip; SecludedMemory )
Drunk 100 Meters - go to the ULSA track, drink 10 beer and race. The drinking is PART of the event. When the starter gun goes off, contestants start drinking, after 10 beer, they head down the track. Depending on how many peeps we have, we'll do 2 heats, then the finals.
Long Jump – at the long jump pit in the stadium, put a car at the beginning of the pit. Ride motorcycle at it, hit said motorcycle which will launch you. Contestant with the furthest launch, wins. Contestants get 3 tries each.
Bring candy bars etc for keep health up and keep things fair.
Wear suitable sports clothes; shorts, Ts, track pants etc...
Bring an Issi if you have one, if not we will supply.
Bring beer... obviously.

Tournament of champions!
At the end of the series we'll be having a playoff of all the gold medallists along the way. We'll choose the top 4 events (based on views, likes and what we the community thought were the most fun) and then have the winners of previous events face off...
And hey... this is all just sh*ts in giggles in the sandbox peeps. Don't take it too seriously... we aren't.
Bike Jousting – two peeps, two bikes, weapons free. Contestants ride towards each other, trying to kill the opponent. Best 2 of 3 for win. Elimination rounds to finals.
Clay Pigeons; ride motorbike or bicycle off stunt ramp, contestants have to kill rider. First to 3 kills wins. ( HT – prototypetom )
Frogger – 8 lane highway at peak rush hour. Contestants start on opposite sides and first that makes it to the other side, wins and moves on to the next round. (see video HERE)
Car Curling - A target set on the ground, (perhaps using the helipads in the airport) teams must drive a vehicle (all using the same vehicle) at any speed towards the target, they have a specific point at which they must bail out and leave the car to free roll as close to the target as possible. Teams could have multiple cars like in real bowls or just one. ( HT – Chronolemon )
HALO Jumping – jumping off Maze bank, or from choppers, the last to open and survive wins. We would probably run heats and then the finals for this one. (HT – Insert-Coin-To-Continue )
Demolition Derby; last car standing. Use stock off the street vehicles in a traditional demo derby.
Car Parkour; two contestants, busy road. Run down a set length of course jumping over oncoming traffic. First to finish, with most successful cars jumped, wins.
Sidewalk BMX; contestants travel down a set length of sidewalk to the finish line. First to cross wins. Must stay on the sidewalk... no DNF for killing pedestrians... of course lol.
Grenade gauntlet – 6 peeps with grenades. Contestants take a confined path and run towards the tossers. First over the finish line wins. If both die, they go again.
Old West Showdown; contestants stand 15 paces apart and are unarmed. At the sound of the starting gun, they whip out a weapon and fire (probably want to take auto-aim off for this one). Best 2 out of 3 wins.
Triathalon... yup we all remember single player lol... but start at the top of Chiliad on scorchers... ride down to the Alamo sea, swim across, run to predetermined point (eg ammunation)... first to arrive wins... (could make this a mission yea?) HT – mo-seph
