The whole Mogolympics thing is very exciting! I enjoyed watching Tome, Khizzara and JD making the presentations so far for the events, and after seeing a few of my friends sharing their entries, I wanted to show mine as well.
My Flag bearer, everyone saw, was my own toon, Navimie, in the outrageous purple/pink. I liked it, because at least you notice her! Yes, yes people think it looks bad but everyone is entitled to their opinion. After all, if we all thought the same it would be one hell of a boring planet, right?
My entry for the cycling event was based on a ghostrider type outfit. I wish I had put the mount in with my entry! But I noticed someone else used the same helm as mine :) I love draenei females.
The hammer throw contest was one of my favourite looks, actually. JD teased me because I forgot to put a belt!! /facepalm Damn trolls, hunching over, I totally overlooked it! But here is the commentary from my entry:
Our first competitor is a Troll up on behalf of Therazane. He positions. Arms extended….and if that isn’t the most interesting whirlwind of a wind up…and release! Logard eyes it up….357 metres! Sweet merciful Illidan! What an opening throw. The crowd is echoing my sentiments ladies and gentlemen.
The winner hit 386m and the silver 382m and the bronze 377m. Phew! Need to work my armwork there (and a belt /grin).
The discus was a tough one! I chose a beefy male orc as my model and I quite liked the Overlord's set with the round shield I chose. It's quite a common look though, but I was happy with it. Here's the commentary:
Kaylira: Whoa, here’s a tough looking Orc for Therazane.
Khizzara: That armor looks heavy, I wonder how it will affect his form?
Kaylira: I think it gave him some extra momentum — look at that spin! And there’s the release… Oh, that looks close to where the last one landed…
Khizzara: Yup, but just slightly further at 358 yards. So third place switches hands once again!
The gold medal winner got 384 yards, and the 3 silver medallists got 375 yards! So I was another comfortable mid fielder :)
I can't wait to see the next lot of results! Everyone is doing such a fantastic job so far. And I yes, I know I could see who the winners were by going to the page where everyone is listed against the faction they were representing, but what's the fun in that? I have to say when I see some of the people I follow getting medals I was pretty excited!
