The Werewolf Olympics | August 1, 2012

So you might have noticed this thing called the Olympics is on at the moment.  It’s likely to have taken over a lot of TV viewing time if you’re into it.  Of which I am.  I love the idea of one global event built on positivity to unifying our world to celebrate achievement.

Okay, but here’s the thing about “our world”, the yours and my world. They are rather different.  In case you don’t know me or haven’t read the title of my blog, or any of my books, you might be shocked to know I’m a werewolf. Yep. Werewolf.   Thing is, I’m not the only one around and the other thing is, we live amongst YOU, the humans of the world all the time.  Hiding in plain sight, looking as human as you do and letting Hollywood mislead you with the ideas on werewolves only be creatures of make believe.

So, are there any werewolf’s competing in the 2012 Olympics?  I don’t know.  How would you tell?

There’s a full moon over the Olympic dates on the 2nd August, so the obvious need to shape shift might give any Olympic Werewolves away  As might the howling in the Olympic Village, although with the amount of bed hopping and nation building relations going on there, it might not sound that out of  place.

I think you’d have to do some sort of random testing of teams. Maybe a silver medal test; Official tester to suspect werewolf Olympian: “Here hold this would you? And tell me how much you want this silver medal hanging around your neck.”

You could expect the werewolf to have a fairly bad reaction to the silver medal.  Although the 2012 Olympic silver medals are made up of 92.5% silver, with the rest being made up of copper.  Whilst not 100% Silver, I got to tell you, that whole 100%silver thing, it’s a myth anyway.  92% silver, still enough to hurt a werewolf. A lot. So you’re bound to get a reaction of some kind, depending on the werewolf in question. Some of us are more sensitive to this metal than others.

And would being a werewolf at the Olympics be defying the Olympic Athletes Oath? Would it be cheating?

“In the name of all the competitors I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams”

Well I don’t think that being an Olympic werewolf would be defying this oath. But there is an argument to be made for the spirit of true sportsmanship. After all, werewolves are predisposed to have far more superior genes than non werewolves, humans.  We have speed like Jamaicans, healing abilities like ….like…quick name me a great healer, and we have strength like weightlifters on an average day.  We can leap like we’re Carl Lewis and that’s all before we start training for the Olympics.

But having superior abilities isn’t cheating if you’re not enhancing them chemically with drugs or doing anything illegal against the games rules. I mean, that’s the point to the Olympics right there, to find out who has the superior abilities. To test yourself and push yourself to compete against the best (ie the superior) athletes in the world.  So how would competing against a werewolf being any different to that?

Hmm, maybe we need to have an independent werewolf athletes represented competing under the Olympic flag.  It could work, given that independent athletes are allowed to compete under the Olympic flag if they are not represented by a country that is yet affiliated with the IOC (International  Olympic Committee) or dissolved countries – those that once were known as something then changed and are not affiliated or can not be included for affiliation with the IOC.  I guess it just depends on where you come from.

And what events would you expect the Werewolves of the Olympics to excel in?

I think we could lay money on boxing, weight lifting and sprinting, maybe even marathon running.  I don’t see us doing to well at swimming or equestrian though, us with animals, it’s not a good mix.  I think we’d put a good show in for kayaking and rowing and suck at cycling and diving.

And table tennis, well, that’s just any man’s land really.

I’d like to give a shout out to @ManWolf13 whose Twitter Monster Olympics inspired this post.
