Want to compete for the gold but didn’t get invited to participate in the Tokyo Olympics? Google has a way to make you feel like an athlete.
The tech company unveiled its latest interactive web experience, Doodle Champion Island Games.
The game features a calico feline named Lucky. She explores Champion Island where she must compete in seven sports to get collect seven scrolls. Sporting events include tennis, skateboarding, archery, rugby, artistic swimming, climbing and a marathon.
The web game was made in partnership with Tokyo-based STUDIO4C.
Google has rolled out similar gaming experiences for previous Olympics.

"Today is a moment of hope. Yes, it is very different from what all of us had imagined," IOC President Thomas Bach said. "But let us cherish this moment because finally we are all here together."
