Strictly Support Group – Strictly Olympics – Archery!

It’s Day 3 in our Strictly Olympics and we’re moving on to our second event! Today’s event is Archery.

We’re looking for you to name the couples, who for you hit the right spot. It could be couples or dances that made you smile, or dances that scored so well and hit the target in your honest opinion!

All we need you to do is tell us who you’d like to see competing in this event before 8pm tonight. You can tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below!

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Later on this evening, we’ll then reveal the couples who will battle it out to be named Archery Champion and win the Bronze, Silver or Gold Medal. 

Keep Dancing! And Good Luck to Team GB in all their events today.

The wait is finally over! Rio 2016 kicked off last night with a fab-u-lous opening ceremony, and today sees the opening of our Strictly Olympics.

In honour of this event, and the Olympic host nation Brazil, we’re starting things off tonight with an Olympic themed chat, and will be starting off our first event in our Strictly Olympics, Athletics!

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to give you some sports and ask you to name the couple and dance that most remind you of each sport! 

Here’s a little rundown of how the next few weeks will pan out:

So “what will happen?” I hear you ask. Well we’ll give you a prompt and you have to tell us the couple who for you best represent that sport! At the end of that day, we’ll then compile all of the couple’s into one poll and will ask you to vote for your favourites. Voting will then close the following day at 6pm and we’ll reveal the results later that evening and award each of the victorious couples with one of these, a sparkly Strictly Olympics (Virtual) Medal! (It’s as good as, if not better than the real thing!)

So keep dancing and getting behind your favourites to give them the best chance of winning a sparkly medal!
