If you picked mostly a's, you are up for challenges all day, every day! You never back down no matter how difficult life gets. For courageous souls like you, hurdles, sport climbing, and weightlifting are some appealing Olympic events.
If you picked mostly b's, you're less likely to get into anything physically challenging. You've found a comfort zone in working smart without breaking a sweat. You, the intelligent, would excel in archery, shooting, golfing, skateboarding, and fencing – events that require tremendous focus and mental fortitude.
If you picked mostly c's, thedevil is in the details for you. You thrive on working with specifications and excel in them. You are capable of technically outclassing most of your opponents, too. Figure skating, diving, and rhythmic gymnastics can be your hunting ground in the Olympics.
If you picked mostly d's, you're the life of the party. And teamwork is your modus operandi. You can shoot your shot in the team events like artistic swimming, basketball, rugby, volleyball, rowing, and water polo. You can definitely go for the doubles events as well.
Go for gold!
