Games to test your skillz against Olympians, from your computer

The last couple of Olympics, news graphics desks went with gloriously detailed explainers about the intricacies of the main events. This year seems to be a bit different. The opening ceremony is today, and I haven’t even seen much coverage. I think everyone has their hands tied with the horribly weird election season.

Anyways, to get away from the horribly weird election season, the Wall Street Journal offers a set of mini-games to test a very specific subset of skills that help Olympians succeed. Test your reaction time against sprinters or your rhythm-keeping against rowers.

Good, simple, and fun.
