ABOUT THE GAME
2000 years ago, the ancient Greeks played a game they called simply 'The Labyrinth'. Until recently, little has been known about the mysterious sport - only that it required the athletes to be blindfolded, and that eventually it was banned from their Olympics games. Now, the rules for the labyrinth have been rediscovered - and for the first time in modern history, the world will learn to play the Labyrinth again. You don't need to be an athlete to master this lost sport - it mostly requires trust, courage, and collaboration. Come learn the sport and participate in a labyrinth race - or just come to watch as The Lost Sport of Olympia is rediscovered in London!
