The 2020 Olympic Summer Games officially started on July 23, 2021, and will last until August 8th in Tokyo, Japan. It’ll be a time of heartbreak and celebration, as athletes around the world come together to prove their skill and years of hard work, and reach for Olympic gold.
So as we watch from the virtual sidelines, we’ll do our fair share of vicarious living — would we dominate the butterfly? Master a 3×3 basketball tournament? Take over the vault?
To accompany you as you dream your Olympic dreams, we devised a list of sports just right for your zodiac sign you to ensure you totally win Olympic gold. Let the stars decide your athletic future!
Aries is a high velocity zodiac sign, and rugby is a full contact sport. When these two are paired together, we can expect gold medal glory at the Olympics. Aries will not rest until they attain the first place prize (a sentiment that is true in any competition that they participate in). Therefore, rugby is the perfect sport for the ram to let off a whole lotta steam — and win.
Wrestling is a sport that ignites all muscles in the body and requires a ton of strength (both in and out of the arena). The earthy sign Taurus likes to get physical and responds to the sense of touch, which is why they’ll be champions in the wrestling rink. They’ll be thrilled to show off their freestyle wrestling moves, as a way to let people see their innate creative talents.
Gemini are high energy, free spirited, vivacious, and fun loving, which is why they’ll have a blast competing for first prize while participating in the trampoline set at the Olympics. Don’t worry about them getting tired from the lively sport, Geminis are extra sprightly because they are two twins wrapped up in one person. They’ll have double the energy of a singular person, which will help them to win gold.
Cancer: Artistic Swimming
As a tender water sign, Cancers will find comfort in using their innate skills in artistic swimming. The creativity, intuition, and routine involved in synchronized swimming is right up any crab’s alley (or shall we say sandbox?). They’ll blend their talents together to showcase an amazing event that will mesmerize all watchers and get them gold. As long as Cancers are in a pool and having fun, they’ll always win.
The lion is the strongest and fiercest animal in the jungle, which is why they’ll be superb at weightlifting. Aaaand, they won’t ever pass off a chance to show off their awesome attributes. All the more reason for Leo to achieve notoriety and greatness at the Olympics. Will they be competitive? No. Leos know they are the best and number one. They won’t stress about winning because they always do.
Fencing is a sport that allows people to focus on their competitor, strategically plan next moves, and be present in the moment. Virgos are decisive, reflective, methodical, and think 10 steps ahead of others, which is why fencing is perfect competition for them to partake in at the Olympic Games. Any Virgo who takes on this sport will win a ton of medals and achieve fame for their amazing abilities.
Libra: Rhythmic Gymnastics
Libras are known to be creative, which is why they’ll be amazing at rhythmic gymnastics. This sport is all about style and presentation, as well as concise moves. It won’t be a problem for Libra to ace this athletic field. They will win at this sport because it allows them to make their own routine, wear beautiful outfits, and pick the music that plays in the background while they compete.
Scorpios are known to be intense water signs. Diving is the best pick for the passionate zodiac sign. Not only will they get obsessively into their sport category (Scorpios invest 100% of their energy into anything and anyone they love), but they’ll also be able to connect with this sport on a profound and deep level. TBH, Scorpios won’t just win one gold medal in this category in their lifetime.
Sagittarius is the archer of the zodiac (hello, noted Sagittarius Taylor Swift!), as they carry their bow and arrow with them everywhere. Therefore, it makes sense that they’ll excel at this sport. Plus, their fiery vibe and need to have the last word will push them to take home the gold medal in the activity they participate in. After all, there’s really nothing left for anytime to say after they own first prize. Drop mic!
Capricorn has the patience to play the long game, which is why they’ll ace this sport at the Olympic Games. With their love of rules and sportsmanlike nature, they’ll keep the drama off the golf course and calmly hope for Olympic gold while putting off against their competitors. The earth sign will also feel comfy playing a land sport and then chilling after by throwing back a few Arnold Palmers.
Being that Skateboarding is one of the newer sports added to the Olympic Games, it’s innovative vibe is totally aligned with Aquarius. Also, the water-bearer will feel at ease skateboarding for a chance at winning the gold medal because it’s known to be a rebellious sport that has its own set of unique rules. The boarders can freestyle their routine, which aligns with autonomous Aquarius who’s not fond of rules.
Pisces: Modern Pentathlon
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and is known to have a little of every other sign’s personality. So, it makes complete sense (according to astrology) that they’ll be good at the modern pentathlon, which has several sports in one category. Pisces totally crush each of the different activities and sections of this sport category, as each element will be interesting to the different parts of their persona.
