As we are to host the Olympic debacle in only five odd years time, I thought I’d check up on the medals won at the World Championships in Japan and we, Great Britain strangely enough, have won three medals, one each of gold, silver and bronze. This is only just over half way through the event, so the Brit. hopefuls are all facing to their favourite compass point or graven image and praying for either help, or rain, or something. The one black female athlete who apparently can run fast is trying to get her own Olympic ban (Drugs apparently) overturned so she can show off in Beijing, which gives some idea of the standards of the rest!
Now readers may well remember that, as a rule, my knowledge and interest in ALL sports and sporting events is absolutely nil, mainly because I frankly don’t see the point! However, lots do so I thought I’d just pose a few queries, and institute another small ATW contest.
Does anyone visiting these blog pages believe that the enormous boon-doggle which is the whole Olympic schemozzle is going to benefit ANYONE apart from construction companies with good lawyers, when the people who are in charge of the Brits. in Osaka stated that they would be happy to end up with fourteen high finishers, and three medals?
Would anyone attempt to explain why the British taxpayer, the Lottery funds raided once again by thieving Labour politicians and the even longer-suffering London council taxpayers should fund these truly silly events?
Why do Brits. valiantly go forth to get wiped off the very athletic map by State-funded automatons from Russia and China, never mind the enormous money available to Americans? It just doesn’t make sense!
So, to the contest.
Readers have to work out and deliver the sentence, given at the closing of the 2012 Olympics, where Britain has come last in the medals, which tries to place the best gloss on the disaster which preceded the closing ceremony.
