NOW tries out the ‘Romney Olympics’ and nails it


Governor Mitt Romney has made repeated mention of his love for the Olympics on the campaign trail, having run the Salt Lake City games back in 2002.

It turns out that competitive spirit extends into an annual Romney tradition written about this weekend in The Washington Post, which have been affectionately dubbed the ‘Romney Olympics.’

The Romney Olympics have long included a mini-triathlon of biking, swimming and running that pits Mitt and his five sons and their wives against one another….They also compete to see who can hang onto a pole the longest, who can throw a football the farthest and who can hammer the most nails into a board in two minutes.

We wondered what the Romney Olympics would look like, and how we’d stack up, so we took a trip to Home Depot. And this is what transpired.
