Mirror's Edge Parkour
Faith, star of Mirror's Edge, may never see the light of game in terms of a sequel, so we're giving her some amusement in the form of a parkour competition that places a lineup of characters in varying terms of athleticism with an enormous obstacle course riddled with plenty of red ladders, slides, and grips (conveniently placed on the side of a building, of course) as well as guards trained to shoot down intruders on sight. Each contestant is forced to flee from combat, as we didn't give them any weapons, and the slower competitors like Wario who have little knowledge in the way of martial arts struggle wildly, but it's all a hilarious spectacle that draws in ratings like a veritable magnet.
Barrel Roll Bonanza
In what is perhaps one of the first Olympic events to allow athletes to compete in personal aircrafts in lieu of relying on physical prowess, the Barrel Roll Bonanza is headed by Peppy Hare, who will expertly judge each and every barrel roll attempted, awarding points for precision, timing, and how quickly the pilot follows instructions, because we all know when Peppy tells you to do a barrel roll, it'd be in your best interest to do it. You don't want to know what happened to the last group who simply ignored his well-intentioned advice. But if you do, you might check beneath the floorboards of Mr. Hare's house.
