OverviewThe NitroType Olympics were founded by [MAUI]EthanJ.S. (https://www.nitrotype.com/racer/yeswayjose) in February of 2015. The NitroType Olympics came about because, in his own words, "there were a lack of fun, exciting NitroType competitions for people to join." The NitroType Olympics quickly became the #1 highest-participated competition on NitroType, and still is today.
"Olympians" - as the competitors are called - compete in three categories, listed below:
- Most Races Completed (activity)
The top five racers in each category receive substantial prizes in the form of NitroType cash. The top 3 in each category receive official NitroType titles from [NT]TheCorndog, the founder of NitroType!
The Summer NitroType Olympics go from June 1st - July 1st and the Winter NitroType Olympics go from December 1st - January 1st. For more information and to join the NitroType Olympics, visit our official website, here: http://ntolympics.shivtr.com!
International Olympic Committee
The IOC - the International Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games - is the group consisting of the leaders of the NitroType Olympics. On the first day of conception, user [NTDT]②Muɔɥ②§↻↻∩ (https://www.nitrotype.com/racer/yun13retnau) became the first member (left in late 2015) - besides the founder, [MAUI]EthanJ.S. - of the IOC. In the early stages there were over five members of the IOC. In the end two members stayed: [XTA]iamtheMELIKEPI! (https://www.nitrotype.com/racer/melikepi) and [SBD]asssa123 (https://www.nitrotype.com/racer/asssa123). IOC applications were then officially closed, leaving the IOC consisting of EthanJ.S., Melikepi, and asssa123, or the "Three Musketeers", as they are nicknamed.
On the 15th of November 2016, EthanJ.S. stepped down as chairman of the IOC (International Olympic Committee), as he was retiring to focus on the next stage of his life. All were sad to see him go, as he has led us through some of the toughest times on Nitro Type. Cheers to Ethan!
WebsiteThe NitroType Olympics website was made on February 9th, 2015. It went through many design and update stages until finally settling on the current design of colorful Olympics background. The design changes slightly for the Winter Olympics, with snowflakes added to the background. The site theme also changed once during the 2016 Honolulu NitroType Summer Olympics with the surfboards, palm trees and hibiscus flowers added to the background. The banner changes periodically every Olympics. The addition of Club O came March 25th, 2016.
Club O is an exclusive Olympics club which was released on March 25th, 2016. It was a major release on the Olympics website, granting exclusive content to Club O members
- Exclusive News page/blog
- Private chat room
- Preliminary polls
- Prize draws
- Plus more exclusive content
Until April 1st the joining fee was only $4 million (NitroType dollars); after April 1st it got changed to $7 million. Club O was extremely popular and, thanks to a good PR campaign, gained numerous users within the first hour of release. For more information about Club O and how to support the NitroType Olympics, go here: http://ntolympics.shivtr.com/pages/joinclubo.
Club O funds were - and are - entirely used to create larger prizes at the end of the Olympics. Many have criticized the venture stating that Club O was a "scam" to make money for the creators. As stated above, that was not the case.
Host cities are chosen by user and Club O polls at least one month before the start of the NitroType Olympics. Previous host cities are listed below:
Winter 2016 NitroType Olympics: Vancouver, Canada
Summer 2016 NitroType Olympics: Honolulu, USA
