New Delhi: London 2012 hurdles can be termed as the most fun Olympic doodle ever that Google has created. Today, as the biggest sporting extravaganza entered its 12th day, Google greeted users with its playable Olympic doodle which shows 110 metres men’s race with 10 hurdles.
The interactive doodle, in the shape of a laptop, lets the user participate in the hurdles race by using the left-right arrow keys to run and the spacebar to jump over the hurdles.
The score is displayed on the screen along with star ratings once the race is over. The experience can also be shared on Google+.
However, the doodle appears only as a static image on mobile Web browsers.
