“Does singing ‘The National Anthem’ count?” We asked pop stars from all over the world which Olympic sport they would do

It’s official. Our eyes are glued to the Olympics!


Especially if it’s sport…. that makes sense right?

To celebrate the Olympics we’ve been asking pop stars from all different countries which sport they would like to compete in and why! Here’s what they said:

USA – The Girl and the Dreamcatcher


Dove Cameron: I think I’d go with track and field. I was always really fast when I was younger, but I developed asthma as I got older and stopped running. BUT I’m nothing if not stubborn. I love to prove stuff to myself.

Ryan McCartan: Does singing ‘The National Anthem’ count?

UK – M.O


Frankee: I’d be a gymnast, I’m quite flexible.

Annie: I’d be a runner I think. I love running!

Nadine: I don’t know… I’d be the judge, I’d pick the winner.

Switzerland – Luca Hanni 

I would love to compete in snowboarding. It’s my all time favourite sport during the winter.

USA – Carson Lueders


If I got to do one sport in the Summer Olympics 2016 it would be basketball because I love playing basketball and it would be amazing to play with the other greats that make up the USA Basketball team!
