Finally, a chance for geezers to show the pups what’s up
Online gaming has captured the attention of millions worldwide. But until this year, loyal trackos have been left out of this real-time, multi-player experience. Then what do I discover? An online track and field game featuring 10 standard events, including sprints, hurdles, jumps and throws. It’s free. You just register at Trackchamp.com, and try out a game in either time trial mode (play by yourself) or jump right into a contest with someone else around the world.
Broadband users only, though. And perhaps no Mac users — since I couldn’t get the site to work for me on my home box. But it looks like a chance for older folks with good keyboard reaction time to put the kids in their place. No age-group competition here, though.
Apparently, the originators of this site talked about a pay-for-play model. But I haven’t seen this played out.
