Summer Olympics

This week's Trivia: Summer Olympics

The Olympic games (summer) stand as a symbol of what we can accomplish as a species when we work together. Every four years, the best athletes in the world gather together to see which of them is most deserving of donning a round piece of medal on their neck. With that always comes excitement, thrills, and national pride. The 2012 games begin the same week as the launch of this quiz, so let's see if you're ready for the challenge.
