Olympics 2016 Quiz

This complete pub quiz pack is themed around the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio and is made up of 8 high quality rounds as follows...

Round 1: Team GB
A handout round split into 3 sections. In the first section teams have to identify 5 Olympic flag bearers for Great Britain from their photos. In the second section, teams are given 5 phrases and have to name the Team GB medal winners whose names sound like reworded versions of these phrases. The final section features 5 pairs of photos, each consisting of 2 people, and the aim is to take the first name of the first and surname of the second in each pair to come up with the names of 5 people who have won gold for Great Britain at the Summer Olympics.

Round 2: Olympic Sports
10 questions on sports at the Summer Olympics, such as "At the 1984, 1988 and 1992 Summer Olympics, which sport had a `women's solo` event, the name of which seems to contradict the name of the sport?"

Round 3: High Fives
2 question on the Summer Olympics, each requiring 5 answers and where each individual answer is worth 1 point.

Round 4: Brazil
10 questions on Brazil, the host country of the 2016 Summer Olympics, including "Which famous beach in Rio de Janeiro has hosted the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup more than any other location?"

Round 5: Initial Letter Link
10 Olympics-themed questions where the answer to question 10 can be spelt out by rearranging the first letters of the first 9 answers.

Round 6: Olympic Scandals and Controversies
10 questions on scandals and controversies at the Summer Olympics, such as "What was the name of the system of racial segregation in South Africa that caused the country to be banned from the Olympics from 1964 until 1992?"

Round 7: Silver or Gold
10 questions on general knowledge where each correct answer contains the word "silver" or "gold" or a derivative of one of these words. An example question is "What is the name of the main villain in the Robert Louis Stevenson novel Treasure Island?"

Round 8: Double Trouble
10 Olympics-themed questions, including "What is the total distance of the three running events and one hurdles event in a men's decathlon at the Summer Olympics?" Each correct answer scores 2 points, but teams can leave answers blank as a wrong answer means a score of zero for the round.

The pub quiz quiz pack is made up of 6 separate files as follows...

First of all there is a professionally designed 2 page answer sheet that you can print out and hand out to each team at the start of the quiz for them to write their answers on as you read out questions. This also features a round by round scoresheet to make it easy to see how each team has performed after all the answers have been marked at the end of the quiz.

Secondly, there is the handout round, which again is to be printed out and handed out to teams at the start of the quiz for them to work on straight away, and carry on working on throughout the quiz and during any breaks you have.

Next there is a 6 page sheet with all the questions in rounds 2 to 8 for you to read out during the quiz, along with all the answers to these plus the answers to the handout round to be used at the end of the quiz to mark everyone's answers. This also features 2 tie-break questions to be used at the end of your quiz if two or more teams end up with the same score, along with a set of substitute questions to help you tailor the difficulty level of your quiz.

There is also another version of this 6 page sheet, but where all of the answers have been removed. This may not be needed, but is included in case the quiz-master would like to take part in the quiz too.

Next, there is a 4 page sheet with instructions and advice on how to run a great quiz.

Finally, there is a quizmaster's scoresheet to help keep track of teams' scores.
