M43 Onion Olympic News

In the little known but still amazing event called the Faux-to-athlon, Olympus user Nigel Williams took the gold for GB, smashing the Olympic record. The Faux-to-athlon is a 10K run, where every km runners are required to shoot an amazing picture of a particular style. Runners must carry all their gear, including a wide angle, telephoto, macro, and bright primes. Photo are penalized by pixelpeeping level 7 judges, trained on DPR forums for infractions such as, excessive noise, banding, lack of sharpness, and artistic blandness.

Nigel, the gold medal winner, cites his training and the lightness of his Oly gear as major factors in his victory. "Really, Sony was out of the running from the start. Not enough lenses. Canon and Nikon - those lads are still out there while I've been cooling my feet and editing my files. Cheerio Can-Ni-Kon!"

Tough words from a tough competitor! Congratulations Nigel, GB, and Oly Nation.
