The Winter Olympics came to a close this week with lots of happy Olympians taking home their medal haul to parade at home.

If you missed any of your favourite sports this year, you can catch all of the highlights on YouTube, or, if you found the Winter Olympics less than exciting, you can also find lots of mash ups, making some of the sports a little more dramatic.

This video makes good fun from changing the men’s speed skating double dash final into a Mario kart inspired race and currently has over 2 million views.

In the video you will see the racers make their way through item boxes and picking up items such as shells to knock out their fellow competitors. Other olympians are seen throwing bananas over the ice and another uses a chain chomp to pull himself through the competitors.

The video ends with a blue shell that, like in the game, blows up the lead racer and in turn the rest of the competitors.

And no parody sports video would be complete without the strange commentators, making comments about the athletes choices of items and tactics throughout the race. Now taking all bets – Betting online at The 2015 Punchestown Festival with William Hill.

This video left lots of people commenting and hoping for this sport to become a reality in the next Winter olympics.
Fingers crossed!
