The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has announced it is launching a virtual Olympics.

This means athletes from around the world can compete for a gold medal…from home!

Called the Olympic Virtual Series, players will be able to compete in five different sports – baseball, cycling, rowing, sailing and motor sport.

The Olympic Virtual Series will begin on 13 May and run until 23 June – a month before the official Olympic Games start.

To run the games, the IOC has teamed up with five different International Sports Federations as well as five gaming publishers to create the Olympic Virtual Series.

For example the IOC has teams up with the International Cycling Federation (ICU) and online cycling game Zwift.

All five of the events will be different from each other due to the different sports.
