The Olympics is a moment in time when we’re treated to amazing feats by athletes that have tirelessly dedicated themselves to their sports and trained their entire lives to reach this point. It’s an emotional two and half weeks as we hear the Olympians’ personal journeys, witness their wins and losses, and feel inspired by their example to also achieve greatness in our own way.

Over the next two weeks more amazing stories will be added to Olympics history, all of which show us that we can achieve anything if we put our minds to it. In that spirit, the ALEX Games encourage you to follow the action and cheer for Team USA! We’ve also sprinkled in a few prizes along the way for more fun and to share the Olympics inspiration with your children.

Here are three ways to play along with the ALEX Games.

Go For The Gold Sweepstakes

Root for Team USA! Each time the U.S. wins a gold medal in one of the events included in the ALEX Games, we’ll select a winner. The winner will receive the ALEX prize associated with that event. There are 12 events in total and many more chances to win! Check out which of the Olympics events are included in the ALEX Games, grab an Olympics schedule, and cheer Team USA to gold!
