The alternative Olympics
I promise I won't dwell on the current Olympics as I know not everyone's a fan save [afraid I am] to say that I only found out this week that each of those coloured rings represents a continent. It did amuse me to read about some of the former events that we are no longer treated to....underwater swimming, tug of war, solo synchronised swimming, tumbling, long jump for horses, one handed weight lifting and thank goodness live deer and pigeon shooting. Then there was the art competition and poodle clipping....umm. Speaking of dogs the sports commentator Andrew Cotter has produced another excellent film on an alternative Olympics if you have reached that point of wanting to tear your hair out over it all!!
