    These is all just hearsay but if i heard correctly, one of olympic flag carriers was a simracer! That's quite big nod towards our little niche. Personally, it makes the most sense, it's the most physical of all gametypes that can be played competitively. Hell, we are simulating a sport.

    Cool then I heard it right. Thought I'd spend too much time on the forums and imagine hearing things that weren't said.

    Pretty curious who it actually was and why he is that important to help raising the national flag.
