A new game at the NHS Choices website can reveal your aptitude for aquatics, creating a personalised Olympic profile after a short series of questions and tests.

The tool, developed in association with Loughborough University’s School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences is designed to increase sports participation in the country in the run-up to the London 2012 Olympics.

After your profile is compiled, the tool recommends your five most suitable sports and provides links to local sports centres and clubs.

Sharron Davies, who won 400m individual medley silver at the Moscow Olympics in 1980, insists the tool could be a step forward for encouraging more people to be active.

“There's never been a better opportunity, with the 2012 Olympics just around the corner, for people to get inspired to be more active and healthy,” said Davies.

“It can often be difficult to know where to start and that is why the ‘What’s my Sport?’ tool is so clever.

“By getting people thinking about what sport or activity might suit them and pointing them to be what's available locally, it will hopefully get people off the sofa and into their training kit."
