This tournament will consist of 3 parts that are going to be played not at the same time due to the huge amount of players/athletes that even 1 part needs. I’ve taken all the sports that are used in Beijing and put them into 3 categories: Citius(part 1), Altius (part 2) and Fortius(part 3). First part is 1v1 games, 2nd part team games and third part 3-8 player games. This tournament's point is not to follow Olympics exactly nor make a copy of those games but to try to do something huge in the spirit of Olympics.
Olympics: Altius Part 2 *Number of Athletes: 208 (104 teams)*
Sign up period: April 12, 2008 - May 8, 2008 First games are made: May 9th, 2008
***EVERYBODY WITH 2 OPEN SLOTS IS WELCOME***
To this part I’ve gathered all the events that need team work and co-operation. You must play with your partner and rely on him/her and he/she has to rely on you. I've lost "sub"-events in this part because I felt that looking for 600 or so players would be too much. But all team events are represented in here. I’d like to bring out that each event is also a clicky that leads you to a site about the sports if you are interested in getting more information about certain events. Check the ending of this post about signing up.

Yes, of course. I forgot that part It's my first doubles tourney Just check back time to time if the list of players looking for partners has expanded and if it has then try to get a partner from that list
