*Not exactly, but it made for a dramatic title!
In honor of the Commonwealth Games kicking off yesterday, the BBC offered a quiz with “13 quick questions” to determine which events from the Games “could match your physical and mental abilities.” Curious, I took the bait. Each question asked you to rank yourself – your body type, your endurance levels, your ability to focus, whether you like working with a team or alone, and so on – on a scale of 1-10, and used your results to determine which 3 sports you’re best suited for.
Ping-pong. Out of all sports, I’m best suited to ping-pong. Cheers, BBC.
(No offense whatsoever intended to anyone who loves the above 3 events! I quite enjoy ping-pong and badminton (never played squash), but I never really associate them with competition… more like goofing off at a party, or the things I’d pick to do in gym class during the winter because I was rubbish at basketball and weight lifting.)
Okay, so I’m apparently best suited to have a racket or paddle in my hand. Whatever. The real kicker was when the quiz told me I’m NOT suited for:
Least suited to athletics/running, especially long distance. Brilliant. Thanks for the encouragement!
*Clearly this quiz was just for fun. The BBC covered itself with the following disclaimer: “Having a close match to a particular sport does not necessarily mean that you will be poor at other Commonwealth Games sports which are not listed in your results. It just means that, on the basis of your answers, these are the sports you might want to try.” Cheers, thanks.
Care to find out what sport BBC thinks you’re best suited for?
If you took the quiz, are you pleased with your results?
