Albuquerque holds Urban Olympics

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque held a different kind of Olympics that didn’t have the usual sports of running or biking.

On Friday, the Urban Olympics were held with some events that are a bit unique including the office chair relay, high heel race and mop javelin.

Each team of five paid $350 to participate. Many of them are from downtown businesses.

The money helps Amy Biehl high school.

This was the 6th year for the Urban Olympics. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
