Sponsored Video | New Olympic Game for 2012, Who is the Greatest?
We’re excited for the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games in London. When you think about the pride of the Olympics you think of that sense of individual achievement.
It’s always a blast to speculate on an idea that there is an athlete who is better than all others in their specific sport. There are the good ones, and then the greats that are at least 1-2 levels above them, with distinct separation.
Before we spiral down that deep well of considering the disparities between individuals based on game merit to physical ability, we must offer the caveat that we are first only focused on the male gender.
If we only focused on a particular sport it might sound like this (as always, open for argument):
Best NBA Player of all-time: Micheal Jordan – 6 NBA Championships
Best NFL Player: Joe Montana – 4-0 in the Super Bowl
Best MLB Player: Babe Ruth – Home-run machine and pitcher
Best MMA Fighter: Fedor Emelianenko – We know lately his dedication lies in the sport of swimming in the coin at night, for taking dives in his last fights, but this guy is the best pound for pound fighter on the planet.
We could go on and on, but the point is that all of these people are examples of greatness. They had skills, and they separated themselves from most (if not all) of their fellow competitors in their specific sports at the highest level.
Everyone has skills and the potential to be great, but who is the Greatest?
The Olympic Games are a fantastic venue to find out who gets the gold and offer an oppurtunity for someone to prove that they’re worthy of the gold. If you’re talented at anything, you could be in the Olympics, too.
Whatever you’re skilled at or would like to try, film your “personal best” on your camera or smartphone, upload it to the website, and you could win:
- A trip for two to the Olympic Games in London
- To be featured in our global TV spot (and on the big screens at the London 2012 Olympic Games)
+ If your video is one of the 10 highest voted each month, you could take home great prizes like phones, cameras, tablets and more.
