They have to alter the events just a bit for a gargoyle.

Title: Bobbleheads
Artist: Spacebabie [The Tower of X]
I was trying to think of an idea for the topic when I looked up to the top of the computer work station, where we keep three baseball bobbleheads. I thought turning a few members of the clan into baseball bobbleheads would be fun.

Title: Soccer Practice
Artist: Limefishys
This is my first entry for the MGC! This guy is practicing what's known as a 'bicycle kick' in soccer. They're fun to do if you can do them, but they can sometimes hurt, since you inevitably end up landing on your backside.

Title: Log Rolling
Artist: Angie "Jessie" McClelland [DakotaAngie's DeviantART Gallery]
I wanted to do something different. I enjoy watching the 'Outdoor Games', a competition where lumberjacks can show their stuff. One of the really fun events to watch is the Log Rolling competition. So here are a couple good ol' Canadian gargs having a bit of fun. I think one of them's about to get really wet. Heh.

Title: Synchronized Sinking
Artist: Shanrelle [Deviantart]
Since most of the events are held in the daytime, there really isn't much a gargoyle can do when in stone form. So, during the night, they can participate in various outdoor sports, but during the day the special synchronized sinking event is held. Here Brooklyn and Broadway are competing for the gold. Isn't it exciting!

Title: Swim Practice
Artist: Crystal (Scorch), Comber [Elfwood (Fanart)]
Well, I've lurked around this site for
awhile, and thought I'd try entering for once. Since I was once a swimmer,
I couldn't help but do a swimming picture. Heh, 5 years ago, before
the invention of the Aquablade suits, speedos were all the swim boys had
to wear, and since you don't see very many competitive swimmers
wearing them anymore, I had to draw my garg in one. By the way, I am aware
of how much drag the garg's wings would create, but since he'd
probably be racing against other gargs and not people, they would all have a
similar amount drag, and so the race would still be pretty equal. .
.slower, but equal. Besides XD I'm sure they have come up with creative
ways to reduce the drag.

Title: The Discus Thrower
Artist: Lioness-gargress [DeviantArt Gallery]
Of course this was coming. We all remember in “Reawaking” when Brooklyn
used those hubcaps as Frisbees. So Frisbees, Olympics, Discus Throw. I’m
knot shore if the discus throw is included in this years Olympics or knot but at lest he looks good doing it right.
The light effects are done using PhotoImpact. The picture was done with prismacolor pencils. Hears some information on discus throwing.
