Death, poorly disguised as a gnome, participating in the Olympics.
First thing that comes to mind.
Immediately the brain gets to it.

If this is death, it’s also God, or Allah, or Yahweh, or What’s His a Name.
The one that brought life must also inadvertently be the one that has brought death.
In fact, all of them brought their own cult to help us deal with that rather unsettling side-effect of their creation of life.

But, what on earth do the Olympics have to do with it?

Well, they are the epicentre of human achievement, aren’t they? After all, pretty much all we can build or create can be devastated in a heartbeat by the on true deity: Mother Nature. However, what we can accomplish with our bodies is purely and truly ours, and also, more often than not, a serious accomplishment on the part of our brain.

But why would a creating father take part in such human competition?
Wouldn’t he beat us all?
No contest it would be, to speak with the wise Yoda.

Perhaps He hopes, against His better judgement, that He will be defeated by someone anyway. That mankind will somehow overcome Him. That once they have done so, they will stop hating and killing each other in His name, whichever one they have picked.
