You are Qwop, our small nation's sole representative at the Olympic Games.QWOP is a Flash-based Sports Game by foddy in which you must get Qwop to run 100 meters without falling over. Uniquely, you control Qwop's individual thighs and calves. It is much harder than it sounds. It has a two-player sequel named 2QWOP.Despite the game first coming out in 2008, it achieved massive internet popularity and Memetic Mutation in December of 2010 after Ray William Johnson showcased a Let's Play video of it.A related game also by foddy is Winner vs. Loser which is likewise based on track & field, and its Spiritual Successor is GIRP for the idea that controlling basic human motions is difficult. Foddy has since made a true successor to QWOP called CLOP, which has you controlling a Unicorn.
Use the QWOP keys to move your legs.

...but our training program was under-funded.
Remember, it's not about whether you win or lose.
