    What is a global event which is broadcasted all over the world, bringing thousands of competitors every four years with countries cheering on their competitors as they race to victory? Is it the World Cup? Is it the Asia Games? Is it the Commonwealth Game? Nope, it is the Olympics!

    Welcome to the 2020 UrbanMC Olympics, an event aimed at uniting the server in a series of sporting events in celebration of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo. The UrbanMC Olympics will be held throughout the month of March, allowing everyone to have the opportunity to participate in at least one event.

    Individual towns will be allowed to enter the Olympics, representing their nations as they challenge each other to bring home the Gold, Silver and Bronze. Every nation will be allowed to enter 4 towns PER EVENT to ensure there is a chance for every nation/town to bring home a medal. Are you a part of a town who is not part of a nation? Do not fear! You will be instead representing your own town instead of a nation, so make sure to prepare for the competition!

    In celebration of the international aspect of the Olympics, events will be held within 10 different towns of the map showcasing how we all have grown within the last 6 months of this world. Locations will be shown in sneak previews as the month of March approaches.

    Now onto the interesting part, the sporting events. There will be a total of 10 events occurring during the UrbanMC Olympics. They are:

    • Building
    • Fencing
    • Boxing
    • Bob Sleigh
    • Trampoline
    • Gymnastics
    • Track
    • Archery
    • Rock Climbing
    • Polo

    These events will vary from individual events to tag team events, where you and your fellow town members must work together as a team to get one of the medals! The event explanations and rules will be announced as March approaches. So remember to start coming up with your nation/town cheers and working on all your skills to showcase how much you all have grown as players on the server. There will be spectator areas for all events when they are being held!

    Yes, this is a game where you all bounce to your heart's desires in a free-for-all. Our first event of the Olympics will be of course, Trampoline, taking place in the town of Corsica. All participants will be given jump boost to allow them to keep their momentum while on the slime blocks. The goal of the game is to eliminate all your competitors and become the last man standing. Each competitor will be given infinity bows and plain diamond swords to assist them in eliminating their competitors. There are however a few rules in this game:

    1. No using any commands whatsoever

    2. If you somehow manage to exit the arena, please inform a staff member ASAP so we can put you back in otherwise you will be disqualified

    3. Any exploits used to cheat the game will cause for immediate disqualification

    Remember to have fun and may the best town/nation win!

    EVENT 3: ARCHERY

    Event Arena: https://imgur.com/a/Gbj0lRG

    One, two, three, SHOOT! Welcome to the third event of the UrbanMC Olympics, Archery! Held in the streets of Moscow, this event will run as a western shootout. Players will start back to back walking down the street, and when the countdown hits zero they will turn around and shoot. It doesn’t matter if you miss on the first shot, because you’ll be allowed to keep shooting until your opponent dies. All participants will be given power 5, infinity bows to shoot their competitors. There are ladders laid out within the arena for you to climb to manoeuvre your opponent’s bow and for you to shoot at a higher angle if you wish. Now for the rules:
    1. No using any commands whatsoever
    2. Any competitors found using any exploits to cheat will immediately be disqualified
    3. Any spectators who assist the competitors will cause that competitor to be disqualified, as well as the spectator themselves to be banned from watching the event occur
    4. Any competitors found escaping the arena and not letting staff know about the issue will immediately be disqualified. If you notify staff there is a way to get out of the arena, you will still stay in the competition
    So all you cowboys and cowgirls, get your bows out and shoot!

    https://imgur.com/a/ANZWm31

    Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring tingle tingling too (ring-a-ling-a ding-dong-ding!)

    Event five is upon us and winter is calling our name again! Yes, that’s right; welcome to the frozen wonderland of Guantanamo where our 5th event, Bobsleigh, will be hosted. Now, this event is the first of some of our tag team sports where you need a teammate with you to compete. Both participants will be inside one boat with one person as the driver, and the other as the shooter. As the driver maneuvers their way around our course, the shooter will be given a regular bow and 5 arrows to shoot other participants and kill them. If they manage to successfully kill a driver of a boat, then the shooter must take over as the role of driver and sled their team to victory.

    The winner of the event will be the first team to reach the finish line. And of course like every event so far, there are rules:
    1. No using any commands whatsoever
    2. If you somehow manage to exit the arena, please inform a staff member ASAP so we can put you back in otherwise you will be disqualified
    3. Any exploits used to cheat the game will cause for immediate disqualification
    Make sure to get your boating skills polished and ready to go into the unknown!

    Hello Olympic athletes,

    I hope you're enjoying the games thus far. I would just like to remind everyone of a few things.

    Firstly, I want to thank ProfessorUtonium and EmmyChewy for organizing this event. They have put a considerable amount of effort into building the arenas, planning each game, scheduling and finally running the events.

    Secondly, the rules for each event are listed in each post and are applied to all participants. Questions should be asked before an event begins. The organizers are the final authorities on game proceedings. Participants unwilling to cooperate with the organizers will be removed from the event.

    Finally, this is just a game. Unsportsmanlike behaviour (sore losers, tantrums, personal attacks on organizers or other staff members, etc.) is not acceptable and will result in disqualification from all remaining events.

    These are just some friendly reminders and not meant to call anyone out specifically. I hope you are all going to be attending the next event: boxing in Haifa on March 14th!

    Thanks everyone!
