Friday Fun: Qwop

Computer generated athlete running on track

Sports fever has hit Britain! Actually, it’s been a pretty good sporting summer, with the usual Wimbledon tournament, Bradley Wiggins winning the Tour de France, and the London Olympics (where Mr Wiggins triumphed again).

So let’s go all sporty today. This week’s Friday Fun is Qwop – a fiendishly difficult athletics game. You control a runner using the Q and W keys to move his thighs, and O and P to move his calves. It takes coordination and timing, and you’ll end up doing more than a few backflips before landing on your head.

Speaking of which, I managed to get to 11 metres before keeling over… after plenty of practice! Why not post your best distance in the comments?
