The 2014 Winter Olympics are just around the bend, but a much more important international competition kicked off on Friday: The Selfie Olympics.

Selfies have taken the world (and even outer space) by storm, and it was only a matter of time before they were combined with the human instinct to compete. They’re similar to the real Olympics in that they include competitors from all over the world; they differ in that competitors are entered without their knowledge and you win absolutely nothing.

But look at the skill! The way these people hone their craft! All of them united in the international spirit of the selfie.

The original Twitter account had been called The Selfie Olympics, but it has been changed to The Selfie Games — follow here @SelfyGames.

But so far the gold medal has to go to this BAMF:

The @SelfyGames account already has over 35,000 followers in just one day. Click here to watch the games unfold.

It’s really quite all right if we’re not chanting U-S-A at the end of this one.
