Google gets sweet on Olympics with Fruit Games doodles

The Web giant plans series of interactive doodles for its own games to spotlight contests this month in Rio.

Google wants you to know that the Olympics aren't the only games in town.

To mark the opening of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro on Friday, the web giant is launching a series of interactive doodles championing its own 2016 Doodle Fruit Games. During the next couple of weeks, fruit such as coconuts, strawberries and watermelons from a fruit stand in Rio will compete in races and other feats of skill, strength and stamina for the title of "freshest fruit," the company said in an introduction to its companion games.

The Fruit Games, which you can participate in by tapping the Google Doodle on your Android or iOS devices, appear to have events planned that mirror the traditional contests held at the Olympic Games, including track and field, swimming, and cycling.

Who will taste the sweet juice of success? Let the games begin!
