Think it's just humans who have been hogging all the Olympic action? Well, that's where you're wrong. A gang of guinea pig athletes have been showing their sporting prowess in a brand new calendar.

The Guinea Pig Games - Going for Gold calendar was created by Maverick Arts Publishing and was created using a combination of digital trickery and guinea pig models, which were borrowed in return for a donation to a local animal sanctuary.

Click on to see some hilariously cute pics of these competitive cavies in action.

No guinea pigs were harmed in the making of this gallery.
