What is it?
The Winter Olympics are well under way and to celebrate QUEENS in London will be hosting their very own ice triathlon. Take on the challenge and put your competitive caps on this Friday as the PyeongChang Olympics heads to Queensway with a trio of curling, ice hockey puck shots and go-nutting. Prepare to team up with family, friends and foes as the games begin at central London’s only permanent ice rink and battle it out to become champion.
Go for gold during the first round of curling as two teams fight for the crown. Are you brave enough to give the curl a whirl and battle it out playing the Olympic sport that has taken over London? Knock your opponents’ stone out of the bullseye or aim yours to slide perfectly into pole position.
You’ll certainly need your A-game for the next round of ice hockey shootouts as you and your friends go head to head firing pucks into a micro net with custom-made puck shot targets. Precision and aim will take you far in this event, so choose your teammates wisely and let the games commence.
From the slopes of the French Alps to the streets of West London, go-nutting will be taking over the city as the sport otherwise known as ‘human curling’ has landed at QUEENS just in time for the Winter Olympics. Have a go at being the stone and dive onto an oversized rubber doughnut propelling yourself across the ice, towards the bullseye. Points will be awarded for accuracy, while a tight grip and daring demeanour are key to success.
The triathlon takes 60 minutes in total, with teams of up to eight, which will then be halved into two competing squads. After all squad scores are recorded, one member from each team will be chosen to shoot for gold with the chance to win a coveted bottle of Prosecco. Teams can then refuel at cult food destination MEATliquor.
