The alternative Olympic games.
For those of us without tickets to the Olympic Games this summer there are alternatives. You could indulge in a spot of toe wrestling or cheer on the cheese rolling instead. Snail racing and bog snorkelling must surely knock the men's 100 meter final into a cocked hat. The UK is gearing itself up for a range of alternative sports that truly show off our wackier side. Held in Cumbria is the world’s biggest liar competition, a contest to find the best teller of tall tales, oh sorry, my mistake that is actually the Leveson Inquiry! We have sheep racing, to the intriguing Hop, Skip and a Gin and Tonic where the winner is the one with the fullest glass. These are the real competitions that hundreds of Brits from across the country line up to compete in this Summer. While securing the title of world champion gravy wrestler or nettle scoffer might not hold the same prestige as winning Olympic gold, for us Brits, it’s the taking part that counts. What barking mad events does you area hold? We are heading towards the Blogville Olympics at lightning speed so don’t forget to check the BCC for the latest updates
