While it's nice

 that Google is marking the 2012 Olympics with a new doodle each day, I can't help but think that it's encouraging passive viewing rather than encouraging more participation in sport.

Throughout the Games, Google has published a number of doodle vidoes (some interactive).

The Football video reminds me of the early Video games  played on a TV with a hand-held device

Then there's the hurdles doodle - again it's like an early video game

Taking part in sport 'virtually' is not what it's all about - unless you count exercising the digits as exercise.

Stick to the image doodle in  future please Google.
