By Maryann Yin 

Feeling sad that the Olympic Games has ended? The staff at Invercargill City Libraries and Archives, a New Zealand-based institution, have shot a video to showcase a new sport: “synchronized shelving.”

The video embedded above has drawn more than 430,000 views on Facebook. Would you try out this sport?

The 2020 Summer Olympics will be held in Tokyo, Japan. Would you join the Invercargill City Libraries and Archives in petitioning the International Olympic Committee to include synchronized shelving in this event?
