The adorable and multi-talented marmots of French public broadcaster French 3 are back in time to compete in multiple sports ahead of the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

In these spots, produced by France 3 frequent creative partners Dream On and VFX shop Light, the marmots try their paws at pole-vaulting, shot put, cycling and skateboarding with varying degrees of success.

The Tokyo Summer Olympics, which will be held without spectators due to the coronavirus, starts on July 23 and runs through August 6.
