The London 2012 Olympics inspired Google to create a playable hurdles 'doodle' which closely resembles Konami's Hyper Olympics (Track & Field).

To many people, this doodle will bring back great memories of the first sports games that appeared on home computers. It's not the first time that Google gives us some retro gaming spirit, the 30th anniversary of Pacman was celebrated with this Pacman Doodle.
