la-sp-oly-roundup-20120730-001For those who love sports, the Olympics can be an exciting time. The greatest athletes in the world are put to the test and we watch in amazement as they perform feats that blow our minds.

The next person receives the drawing booklet and they have to draw a picture of what the person before them guessed. This goes around for eight turns... one person draws and the next person guesses. By the end, what started out as a horse could come back as a hot dog.
