Aeon Olympics!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
I was watching this thing about nominating someone to be an olympic torch bearer for the Salt Lake City winter games and for whatever reason I just had this funny image of someone hiring Aeon to set whole neighborhoods on fire with an Olympic torch. So the question that came to mind was.... What Olympic Sports would Aeon probably excel at?
- no creativity points will be awarded for gymnastics or skeet shooting :)

Ah, foolish Pixi:the answer is obvious. Biathlon, for a start. And her costume suggests ribbon dancing, if it's now an olympic sport.

Not sure it's listed with the Olympic Committee yet as it's indoors and difficult to be viewed from the stands by thousands.

Yes, martial ribbon dancing. Ryoga's got nothing on Aeon.

Good one al from cal - bonus points for picking a winter olympics event! Myself personally, I think she'd probably be a contender in speed skiing (you know, where the people get all suited up in ultra tight neoprene before barreling down a 78 degree slope - where the winner is the person who achieves the highest speed (usually between 100-118mph)

Team bobsled, a big sexy bullet hurtling down the ice tube, I get chill bumps just thinking about it.
