Yes, it’s day one of our Strictly Olympics and we’re ready, set and ready to go with our first event! Today’s event is Athletics.
Over the last few hours we’ve asked you to nominate dances that you felt best summed up this statement:
Your suggestions and nominations have now been put into a lovely playlist, looking just like this:
All you need to do is watch the dances above and vote for your favourite using the poll below. Voting will remain open until 6pm tomorrow evening and we’ll then reveal the winners later on in the evening!
Who will win the Glitterball medals? It’s up to you to choose. Get voting for your favourites.
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!
