From synchronized space swimming to ‘lack of floor routine’ gymnastics, astronauts at the International Space Station (ISS) enjoyed their own Olympics games in zero gravity before holding a ‘closing ceremony to bid goodbye to Tokyo 2020.

French astronaut Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency (ESA) posted a series of videos on Twitter over the weekend, showing some of the ISS astronauts performing their favorite games sans gravity.

They also had a ‘weightless’ sharpshooting session where they shot what looked like rubber bands at a makeshift target.

“Weightless sharpshooting – concentration and skill (or luck) proved necessary to reach the target,” posted the French astronaut.

During the synchronized space swimming, the astronauts worked hard on the routines despite the lack of water.

“Synchronised space swimming — an opportunity to show teamwork and crew cohesion,” Pesquet posted.

“No-handball — we had to adapt the rules a bit during the match, much investment on both sides for the win,” he added.

The astronauts even hung little flags of all the countries represented over their performance zones on the space station.

Finally, they held a closing ceremony where Aki Hoshide of JAXA (Japan’s space agency) handed an Olympic flag to Pesquet, as Olympics 2024 is slated to happen in Paris.

The president of IOC, Thomas Bach, declared the 32nd Olympic Games closed on Sunday as the Olympic flag was handed over to France, the host of the 2024 Paris Games.
