The Olympics are in full force–get your fix by going on an Olympic-themed date. No muscles required.

Take a lesson in an Olympic-themed sporting event. Tennis give you a sexy, sweaty glow and the skirts leave little to the imagination. Kayaks make for cozy ride. Or you can mount-up on horse together and polish-up on your equestrian skills.
Hit Some Balls
Table tennis has been an Olympic sport since 1988. This makes for a fairly simple date: Find a spot with table tennis (bars work nicely) and grab a paddle. Loser gets a spanking.
English Pub Grub
Let your Brit flag fly. Get your hands dirty and take your date for a greasy dinner of Fish and Chips. You can really get your theme on with an English beer like St. Peters or Fuller’s. Note: The above can also be substituted with Bangers and Mash, Bubble and Squeak or Toad-in-the-Hole. All of which sound a little bit naughty.
An Olympic sport that any booze hound will approve of. Host your own two-person Beer Olympics. Fortunately, there’s no official way to play “Beer Olympics” so choose activities according to fitness (or maturity) level. Play Beirut with Olympic-colored Solo cups set in the official ring for a festive touch. You might also want to indulge in an Olympic beer crawl; or if you’re really ambitious, events with limbo, javelin or beer Slip ‘N Slide.
Okay, this one takes some serious effort to coordinate (sourcing the kiddy pool and mud, for instance); and the only connection to the Olympics is that wrestling is competitive sport in the 2012 Summer games. But seriously, how awesome would would it be to go on a mud wresting date once in your life?
Olympic Drinking Game
If you prefer to watch the Olympics while imbibing from the comfort of your own living room, a drinking game works nicely with the London 2012 Olympic. Drink when they mention Lochte’s grill, stick a landing, don’t stick a landing, hug a little too tightly on the volleyball court, reference the Dream Team, pan to Ryan Seacrest. You get the idea.
