This is actually kind of cool.  The way I read it, it seems like they're not just out to do every sport, but to complete each sport doing as well as they can.

Thankfully they left out the beach volleyball pictures.

I would like to be around when they do the BMX and mountain biking.

This was the Beijing MTB trail. Let's hope they know how to handle a bike.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Some of that equipment is really really expensive!

They are trying out for every sport, not every event.  So things like the javelin can be ignored, as they can try out for the 400m.

Everything can also be pretty cheaply rented.  I don't think they are going to purchase their own state of the art hull for rowing.

Every four years I want to go out for the team handball competition.  That looks like a blast.

They've done both the 100M and 200M, as well as various swimming distances and strokes. So maybe they are doing multiple events in some sports.

Whichever it is, this is a really cool idea.

Nevermind, they are doing every event. They've already done hammer throw, discus, shot and javelin throw.
