Olympic Plant People and their Makeshift Equipment

There is a cute row of sculpted plant people engaging in various Olympic sports on display near Baishiqiao.  The artists behind the installations must have run out of time or funds by the time they decided to furnish these green creatures with actual sports equipment, to quite an amusing effect:

A green tennis warrior brandishes his weaponHate it when the birdie gets stuckThe foliage aims its deadly pipe

The tennis and badminton players each have a ball and birdie respectively dangling sadly by a wire from their rackets.  I’d guess the tennis player is not actually supposed to be holding a tennis racket; he’d look much more comfortable with a kendo sword in his hands.  And I think the rifleman is aiming with something that might have been picked off a construction site across the street.
