What happens when you pit the Zest team against a group of Olympic athletes in a head-to-head X-Box Kinect battle? Drama, that’s what!
When taking on an Olympic athlete on their turf the result’s a foregone conclusion, but when you can take them on in a virtual battle surely there’s a slim chance of victory? That’s what we hoped when we headed to the Kinect Sports Superstars showdown last week to take on Olympic bronze medallist gymnast Louis Smith, Skeleton gold medallist Amy Williams, cricketing legend Graeme Swann and 2012 table tennis hopeful Darius Knight. We’d like to report a whitewash, but by some miracle were beaten in javelin, long jump and the 100m sprint, but we found our inner Million Dollar Baby to knock out Louis Smith – the first Briton to win a medal in gymnastics since 1928 – in the boxing ring. OK so we can’t perform triple somersaults and drop into the splits with ease but we can deliver a deadly blow on the Xbox!
