What’s your Olympic body type?

I’m a sucker for a good online quiz and the BBC Olympic athlete body match app is right up my alley.

All you have to do is input your height and weight (and they’ve kindly provided the option to do this in metres/inches and kilograms/pounds/stone) and then let the self-loathing begin! The app quickly spits out the Olympic athlete who’s body type you share, along with a photo.

In my case, I’m most like a female Belgium badminton player. I would’ve preferred to have been a female synchronized swimmer, but better this than a men’s discus thrower. I think I can deal.

Take the test! What athlete are you?
