A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
Explore the history of a highlight of the Olympic Games: the hundred meter sprint finals.
The Olympic Games, originally intended as a friendly meeting of nations, has increasingly become a podium for national profiling, minority issues and the perfection of the body. In the interactive component, players can influence the outcome of sprint finals by manipulating factors such as country of origin, training, gender, height and weight. Players can pitch athletes against each other who would never meet in the real games. Who would win if Usain Bolt were to run against the ‘flying housewife’ Fanny Blankers-Koen?
