Animals have their own games
Not to be outdone by the likes of sprint king Usain Bolt and swimming legend Michael Phelps, animals in the London Zoo have been busy showing their athletic prowess.
During the Olympic fortnight, people in large numbers have been thronging the London Zoo to watch competitors from the animal kingdom race away to sporting glory.
“We have animals here that possess athletic abilities and through this event we are trying to tie that ability with the Olympics fever. People have been coming in large numbers and seem to thoroughly enjoy the animal Olympics,” zoo keeper Lucy Smith said.
The animals competing at the zoo Olympics include lions, otters, penguins and rats.
