Google doodle brings Olympic dream to the keyboard

What\'s your top time? (Courtesy Google)

WASHINGTON – If you’ve ever wanted to be an Olympic athlete, Google is giving you the chance.

Sort of.

In a move that’s sure to cut into office productivity everywhere — and already has here at WTOP — Google’s Olympics-related doodle Tuesday puts desk jockeys in control of a hurdler heading down the track. Keyboard arrows make the hurdler run, and well-timed taps/pounds of the space bar make him jump.

Our initial office champion was writer and film critic Jason Fraley, with a time of 11.6 seconds. That time has since fallen, as you can see below.
