Could you be a medallist?

Do you feel the Olympic fever? Have you ever dreamed to be on Olympic athlete? The Guardian has just launched a funny retro advergame that allows you to see how your personal best in the 100m, 10km, 100m freestyle swim and bicycle road race compares against the all-time greats – and whether your time would have ever earned you a place on the podium.

In case you are too slow in real life, you can still try to win a medal with the old-style but fun keyboard power challenge. Nice job by Guardian Interactive designers Jamie Lenman and Sean Ingle, who help you discovering the fastest men and women who ever competed in the Olympics while having some healthy retro fun especially if you loved Summer Games back in the days of Commodore 64.
