According to a recent article on kotaku.com (no I won’t link you. I could but I’m just lazy.) Mexican gymnast Elsa Garcia Rodriguez Blancas used music from “The Legend of Zelda” video game franchise in her Olympic performance.
While it is unfortunate that the Mexican team probably will be thoroughly defeated by gymnastic powerhouses like China and the U.S. (I know next to nothing about gymnastics so I’m just guessing here) it was good to see that kind of creativity and representation in the Olympics. Video game music is thought of as some kind of fringe interest pursued by social outcasts and misfits. However, to have an Olympic athlete incorporate it into her routine when the world is watching skyrockets it into instant credibility.
