Do you have what it takes to win the 2020 Indoor Olympics?

The fate of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo is still unknown. They might be postponed or delayed, and we may miss out on watching some of the world's top athletes amaze us with record-breaking performances. Thankfully, you have everything you need for the world's greatest sporting feats right in your flat. Introducing the 2020 Indoor Olympics, hosted right here in Hong Kong.

Film a video of your participation in the games. What events do you think should be in the Indoor Olympics? Make up your own fun indoor 'sport'. For instance, are you competing in the Rolling Chair Derby, or Pencil Juggling? 

The best video (as selected by our panel of expert judges) will receive the grand prize of a Nintendo Switch + Ring Fit Adventure video game, which will help you stay active while in lockdown.

The runner-up will receive a voucher for Marathon Sports.

We'll also choose some of our other favourite videos for Instagram, and the most "liked" of these videos will win a Marathon Sports voucher.

How to enter

Film a video (1920x1080 MP4 or MOV format) of yourself competiting in an event in the Indoor Olympics.

Videos should be no longer than 1 minute. The file name should include your name and the title of the event. Upload the video to Google Drive and email the link to [email protected] with your name, age, school, phone number and 'Indoor Olympics' in the subject line. 

Entries will be judged on the creativity and effort of the performance, as well as video-making skills. Don't just film yourself doing the activity; add some fun filters or music. Make it exciting! The only limit is your imagination - and the 60-second time limit.

Young Post will choose the winning entry. 

The closing date for entries is Sunday, March 22, at 11.59pm.
