We are just jazzed about the Olympics, and in order to celebrate in a Fig-tastic manner, we hosted an Olympic flash fiction contest so even the less-than-graceful could join in on the fun!
The Figment editors chose the five winning stories to be featured on the homepage. These stories describe the intensity and excitement of the Olympic games with perfect clarity.
“This, right now, is the golden moment.”
“I looked up, and I knew that I had inspired a generation.”
“My concentration has muted the rest of the world.”
“Cameras clicked and reporters wandered around the scene greedily, trying to get any sort of news.”
“My heart is pounding, but with excitement.”
