As Scooby and Shaggy run away from a monster that the gang is trying to catch, Diane sees their running alibity and ask them to join in the World Invitational Games. Shaggy agrees, while Scooby can't not join because he is a dog, but instead decides to coach Shaggy. The gang goes to London and Shaggy is in awe of being in the games. Meanwhile, Daphne and Velma starts to take a instrest in the pole vaulting Steve Looker, causing Fred to be a bit jealous. He goes on to say he pole vaults as well, and Steve invites Fred to vault with him, in which he reluctantly agrees. Jack Riggins stops by and wishes Steve good luck on breaking his personal record. In the stadium, two workers clean up near the Fortius statue, watching it come to life and they run away. In their hotel rooms, Shaggy and Scooby are watching a Gladiatorsaurus marathon and a loud stomp comes from outside. Steve comes into their room and the three go to investigate and see the Fortius statue wrecking the village.
The next morning, Fred, Daphne, and Velma arrive at the village and Diane informs them that there were rumors of the statue being haunted and is one of the reasons she invited them all to join Shaggy. Before the tryouts for the finals start, Velma asks Steve about Igor Drozdov, another pole vaulter. The finals begin and Steve makes the cut while Fred breaks Steve's lucky pole and falls. Just as Velma realizes the pole was cut and glued, the statue strikes his weapons onto the stadium and leaves. Velma and Daphne becomes sucpisions of Igor, Sergey, and Diane, for non of them being there when Fortius struck. Later that night, the gang searches for clues and they find drag tracks then are chased by Fortius.
The following day, Shaggy begins to worry about not being fast because he is not scared. Scooby dresses up as the statue to scare him, only to have the real statue come into the stadium. The gang trap him, with the help of Athletes piling upon him, and is revealed to be Jack Riggins. He dressed up as Fortius to make Steve quit the games, as he didn't want his record broken. Steve, as he promised Shaggy he would, breaks the record and the gang celebrates the victory.

- This is the fifth time, that Scooby and Shaggy go to London.

- This is the second time, that Velma and Fred go to London. Although this is Velma's first time in real London as her previous visit was actually at a recreational set at the Wonderworld amusement park.
- This special is partly inspired by the Laff-A-Lympics evident by it's inclusion on the Scooby-Doo! Laff-A-Lympics: Spooky Games DVD which also finishes the first season of Laff-A-Lympics; both its air date and DVD release has been timed to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics.
- This is the Scooby-Doo universe's version of the Olympics (even using a similar logo) and is no coincidence that it is also being held in London for the first time as well.
