Virtual Xbox Olympics

People from 36 countries gathered in the Estonian capital of Tallinn this past weekend for a virtual Olympic Games.

Using Xbox Kinect technology, the athletes ran and jumped in place for a chance to claim their spot on the podium.

Events included sprints, discus and the javelin throw.

In the end, the top team was from Guatemala, second place was the Czech Republic and the U.S. came in third.

Organizers hope to one day make the virtual Olympics a worldwide event where people can participate from home.
