She might not be participating in the Olympic Games, but that hasn't stopped Thailand's giant panda, Lin Ping, from gearing up for them.

Hours before the Games were set to kick off in London on Friday, the panda played around in her habitat, located in the country's Chiang Mai province, with some super-sized rings modeled after the Olympic logo.

Maybe with a little more practice, Lin Ping can bring her talents to the 2016 summer competition.
