Google’s Olympic Doodles Go Interactive

Google has blessed us with a new London 2012 Olympics-themed Doodle every day since the games started. But now it has taken things to the next level.

Today’s Olympic Doodle is interactive, letting you play as a hurdler. In traditional sports game fashion, it involves plenty of button-mashing. You hammer away at the left and right keys to run, and hit space bar to jump when the hurdles pop up. If you’re bored at work, it’s the perfect (if slightly loud) 30-second distraction.

Why not give it a go and let us know your score? Our best so far is 17.4s. Yes, we’re not much cop at games. Good luck, Andy Turner…
