__NOWYSIWYG__ Dead Zone Olympics Update
August 21, 2014


Greetings, Dead Zone! This is your daily Dead Zone Olympics update for August 21, 2014. Tomorrow will be the closing ceremony - all survivors are welcome to watch!


Today's Events:

-> Union City Run

The last event of the whole Olympics; a combination of cross-country running, shooting, obstacle course and a short urban race to see what true leaders are made of.

Route information for adults:

Leaders start in Pinedale, where they run east to the Brookvale Banks bridge, where the shooting event takes place. The obstacle run will take place in Canal Park South, Canal Park, and Newtown West, where ZomBait has been used to attract zombies. Newtown Bridge serves as a 5-minute rest stop, where protection and refreshments will be provided. Leaders then run westward to Canal, and then north to reach the finish line at the Stadium. CCTV cameras line the route, and medics have been stationed at certain locations along the route to treat survivors that collapse.

Route information for kids:

All young survivors under the age of 18 start at The Bricks, where they run north through Newtown East, up into Uptown and Downtown, where there is an obstacle run, and then cross the bridge into the Docks. The bridge serves as a 10-minute rest stop, where protection and refreshments will be provided. They then turn west at the Docks and run alongside North River Parkway, where the shooting event takes place. They then continue westward into the Stadium. Like the adult version, CCTV cameras monitor the race, and medics will assist survivors that cannot continue.

1st place winner: Jason Nguyen

2nd place winner: (TIE) Garrett Torres/Laura Morales

3rd place winner: Lindsay Roberts

- THE EVENTS

-> Obstacle Race

An obstacle race where recons and scavengers must avoid a set of obstacles designed to test the stamina, speed and reaction time of the participants.

The course was designed by former military members and long-time survivalists and the event will be held in the premises of the Stadium.

-> Shooting

Target practice with both static and mobile archery targets with points gained depending the area the bullet is. The weapons allowed are pistols, hunting rifles, shotguns and assault rifles with no modifications and special, non-lethal ammo designed and approved by the Committee.

The shooting event is available for fighters and recons and the shooting distance between the target and the shooter is between 800 to 1,600 feet (244 and 488 meters, respectively). Accuracy, weapon expertise and reaction time will also be tested.

-> Weightlifting

To test the strength of fighters and engineers with a set of 3 barbells of different weights where participants must lift and hold for a predetermined time. The weights for men will be 62, 69 and 72 kg while for women will be 53, 58 and 63 kg.

The clean and jerk will be the judged lift in this competition.

-> Trap Disarming

For engineers where traps must be deactivated, first with free time and, later, within a set amount of time. A basic set of trap tools will be given and all known traps will be used for testing. All traps are non-lethal.

-> Scavenging

For scavengers where a room or area will be used to see if the participants can find certain items within a time limit with their minds, eyes and experience.

-> Union City Run

The last event of the whole Olympics; a combination of cross-country running, shooting, obstacle course and a short urban race to see what true leaders are made of.

The obstacle run will take place in Canal Park South, Canal Park, and Newtown West, where ZomBait has been used to attract zombies.

-> Kids Events

Each event above has a "kids" equivalent for the youth of the Dead Zone. They are basically simplified events for those 16 and under.

All "adult" events have a kids equivalent of the same name except Trap Disarming (which has no kids equivalent at this time) and Weightlifting, which is called the "Fitness Test". It does involve weight-lifting, but focuses more on the number of push-ups, sit-ups, etc. the athletes can perform.


Additional information

The Dead Zone Olympics ends tomorrow! The closing ceremony will be taking place at the Stadium. Refreshments will be provided, and some of the best surviving entertainers in the city are ready to unleash their artistic talents once again! As always, we would like to thank all participants and all spectators. We hope to see you again in January, where the Winter Dead Zone Olympics will be held!

Names, compounds locations and roles MUST BE given in the Inscription Booths located inside the Stadium. The whole event will be monitored and guarded by the Dead Zone Protection Services. Accommodations and refreshments provided by the Reinhold Auction House.
