London 2012 hurdles is the twelfth London Olympics doodle, carrying on the tradition of a Google doodle every day of the Olympics.
Hurdles racing is just like normal racing, except athletes also need to jump over a series of obstacles (called “hurdles”). Typically, a hurdles race features 10 hurdles, irrespective of the distance involved. So we have 100m or 110m hurdles (corresponding race of 100m sprint), as well as 200m and 400m hurdles, all where athletes jump over the same amount of hurdles.
London 2012 HURDLES Doodle How to Play the Game:
The doodle itself is in the form of a game, where the user’s aim is to make the athlete complete the distance as fast as possible. Rapidly alternating the left and right keys makes the athlete in the game go faster while the space bar can be used to jump over the hurdle. Try aiming for a sub-12 second time to be the Usain Bolt (or Dayron Robles, the 110m hurdles champion at Beijing Olympics) of your office!
