'World's first micro Olympics' comes to Stratford rooftop playground with free Prosecco up for grabs

Wannabe athletes are being challenged to show off their prowess at the 'world's first micro Olympics' in Stratford later this month. Punters at rooftop adult playground Roof East can compete in miniature versions of their favourite sports during the free fun-filled event on Saturday, July 27.

Four tiny arenas will see teams and individuals battle it out for medals and sporting glory - the drama and suspense no doubt matching that of the Paris Olympics, kicking off the day before.

Kicking off at 4pm, games include toothpick javelin, the short jump, ice cube fencing, baby curling, and bitesize balloon fencing. A vintage-inspired stadium will bring 80s and 90s nostalgia with micro Jenga, Speed Connect 4 and finger Twister, whilst the micro mystery zone will spring surprise games on the toughest of competitors across the afternoon.

Those with the most medals will go into a final head-to-head showdown and the Micro Olympics Champion 2024 will be announced at 7.30pm. The winners will receive free prosecco - and bragging rights.

Pre-booking isn't required and people of all ages are invited to take part, but children need to leave the east London venue by 5pm. For those not wanting to miss the action across the English Channel, the Paris Olympics will be shown on flat-screen TVs throughout the afternoon.

The micro Olympics is just one of the activities on Roof East's summer line-up, with a hang bar challenge, rooftop film club, dance classes, silent disco, and their usual range of adult games also on offer. For more information, visit www.roofeast.com.
