The 2012 Summer Olympic games have come and gone as the United States dominated in the overall medal count.
With the USA Basketball team running away with the game’s highest honor, one U.S. born player was picked to participate in a similar event.
Los Angeles Lakers forward, Metta World Peace (formerly Ron Artest) ran for Gold in the Track and Field event during an episode of Nickelodeon Jr.’s “Yo Gabba Gabba.”
The show’s Olympic special featured, the 35-year-old competed against Toodee, a cat dragon and Mrs. Fox, cartoon fox, while being coached by his 8-year-old daughter, Diamond.
World Peace won the race, in the most dramatically undramatic way that one can during a kid’s show.
Hey, at least the guy is staying out of trouble during the off-season.
