The latest in Google's series of Olympics-themed doodles celebrates rhythmic gymnastics. The previous three were interactive, playable games, but Google appears to have gotten back to the more traditional doodle style. Perhaps they just couldn't figure out a way to make a game out of rhythmic gymnastics.

The previous doodle was for soccer, which was preceded by slalom canoe, basketball, hurdles, and the javelin throw. Google has featured a sport-themed doodle each day since the Olympics' opening ceremony.

The hurdles doodle even drew some controversy, as some people claimed that it was racist. This led to a bit on Conan O'Brien.

The new doodle is currently live in parts of the world where it has already become August 11. You can see it at, for example. The rest of the world's native Google sites should be getting it soon enough.

The rhythmic gymnastics events began on Thursday, and will continue through Saturday. You can check out the official page for the events here.
