Olympics - let's go for Gold!
26, 2004 - by Anthony Troy, Simborough
Are you into Basketball,
Volleyball or FuSball, or other sports? Get ready for the chance of your
lifetime, attend the SUN Olympics! The games are due to start on Monday
the 6th of September, and your local athletes are expected to participate!
and welcome to the SUN Olympics 2004. Here is the chance that your sporty
sims have been waiting for... a chance to test their skills against Sim
Nation and to win medals for their hoods. 9 distinct sports have been chosen
for this years events including Free Style Sky Dive, VolleyBall & FusBall.
Prepare for the SUN Olympics
Each team member must be in
a sports/military or X-treme career
Each member must have at least
Each member must have at least
5 skill points (in any catergory)
The most important thing
for hoods to be doing now, as the Olympics are scheduled for early September,
is to not only choose their team but to also start vigerous training programs.
Below is a list of requirements set out by the 2004 SUN Olympic Panel,
headed by Celia Hammond:
Hoods must also choose their
contestants with care and heed by the following to make sure that they
have every success in the games. Hoods can decide how large (or small)
their national sports teams are. However a hood must abide by certain rules
to be able to enter the Olympics.
One sport per athletes
- many athletes per hood
If a hood desires to have
contestants in ALL sports then the team must consist of 9males and 9 females
as a sim cannot enter into more than one sport. For example a sim may play
in both singles and doubles of FuSball but cannot play singles FuSball
and singles Basketball. This would then allow the hood to enter every singles
catergory but more sims would obviously be needed for the doubles and quads.
You don't have to have a team which competes in every catergory though.
For example your hood may decide to dedicate yourself to VolleyBall, FuSball
and Swimming and enter all the available catergories in these three sports.
In addition hoods may have
more than one sim individual in a sport..up to 3. This means that Simborough
could have 3 female individuals all competing for the VolleyBall singles
title. However where doubles and quads are concerned each hood may only
have 1 team.
This means that the minimum
team no, so as to enter ALL sports and ALL catergories would be a total
Simborough spoke to Chairwomen
Celia Hammond about the event:
"I think it is especially
important at this time to take some of the focus off of the convertion
and to remember that, even as 2dimensional sims, we are a strong and powerful
nation. These games have been derived to give sports sims a chance to show
their talents and for the rest of us to watch in awe. We must remember
that come conversion we will lose some of our neighbourhoods and correspondance
with some hoods, in particular Greymount, will become increasingly difficult.
Remember...go out there and win medals for your hood!!"
