This year should have been the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, but the Covid-19 pandemic forced the Games to be put on hold. But Scottish BBC Sports Commentator Andrew Cotter didn’t want to put his notes to waste, so he decided to recreate the opening ceremony with the help of his Labrador canine companions, Olive and Mabel.

Canine Olympics

Andrew shared the video with his Twitter followers. As his dogs come into view on screen, Andrew explains that his dogs were representing Lithuania and Luxembourg. As Andrew provides a little background to Lithuania and Luxembourg’s history in the Olympics, the camera pans over to Olive and Mabel who merrily jump into a pond for a swim. Andrew then jokes that the dogs are ‘strong medal contenders’ for the eating contest.

Twitter stars

The funny film is the latest clip from Andrew to follow the adventures of his canine companions during lockdown. His Twitter followers have already enjoyed watching a ‘performance review’ of his pups.

Andrew’s latest Olympic film has had almost 1 million views and 42.5k likes within the first few days of posting.
