The BBC has put together a quick little tool that tells you which Olympic athlete you most resemble. Well, kind of. They've built an app that determines your Olympic body match based solely on height and weight. In other words, muscle tone, body fat, strength, and endurance capabilities have nothing to do with their pick for your sporty doppelgänger.

Go to "Your Olympic body match" on the BBC and plug in your vitals. Then share the link so your friends can guffaw—and then have their own moment.
