Balloon Athletes Star In Olympically Awesome Animation

It's a medal-worthy performance.

The Rio 2016 Olympic Games are over, and the Paralympics has yet to begin.

So why not use this downtime to watch a fun animated clip that imagines athletes as balloons? The inflatable competitors wrestle, dive and run just like humans — but with some hilarious results.

United Kingdom-based animation studio Animade posted the wonderful “Olympops” video to Vimeo last week, and it’s now going viral.

Check it out in the clip above.
