The Rio Olympics are upon us, bringing with it muscled athletes, 3am ping-pong viewing and, no doubt, a buttload of shots of Christ the Reedemer. 

And though you can’t throw, jump or break a world record—you can drink. So we’ve created this little drinking game for you to squeeze every drop of Olympic glory from this year’s games.

Line up your adult beverages and take a swig every time…

  1. An Aussie wins gold!
  2. An athlete is quarantined for gastro #dontdrinkthewater.
  3. You see a female gymnast that looks like she should be at a Wiggles concert.
  4.  The wrong anthem is played—not that you’ll know.
  5. The runner up can’t hide their scorn.
  6. Someone cries happy gold winner tears.
  7. Someone cries sad my-homeland-is-disappointed bronze medal tears.
  8. The camera stares dreamily into the Olympic flame for maximum feels.
