Olympic Summer Fun continues!

Here at the Bugle, the Olympic fun doesn’t stop just because the events in China came to a close!

The Bugle staff wants to know: Which Olympic events are the best preparation for the coming collapse of civilisation as we know it?

We’ve given you a few choices regarding the end of days, but what we really to see is your own ideas in the comments. Write a comment with the name of the event and the reason why that event’s greatest athletes will survive the post-apocalyptic wastelands. We’ll add it to the polls and you might just win the Post-Apocalyptic Prize*!

Which (summer) Olympic athletes would survive the collapse of civilisation as we know it?

    My vote goes to the Modern Pentathalon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_pentathlon). Athletes proficient in all five disciplines will do great in a post-apocolyptic world. They are deadly with blade and pistol; can run and swim fast; and ride like the wind. All hail the Modern Pentathaletes!

    Since we all know any post-apocolypical world would resemble Mad Max, I believe that archers, javelin throwers, and fencers would have the best chance to survive. You need to be able to hunt and get some meat!
