    Nicely following on from the successful bid of London for the 2012 games, I was just wondering which olympic sport, regardless of your actual ability(i'm sure that's only a minor part of being a successful athlete!) would you like to win a gold in?

    I think I'd like to go for synchronised diving... it looks great fun and I don't think I'd get too hot and sweaty which is a bonus. I'd be rubbish as I can't really dive very well,but in my head..... I'd be great :cool:!


    Any of these take your fancy?

    I was rubbish at hockey, I once hit my teacher across the shins with my stick (by mistake) hmmm how is shooting an olympic sport? they are encouraging people to shoot?? what do they shoot?? hopefully not each other!! I think I'd do gymnastics its quite girly, hmmm I'm not very bendy though so maybe I wouldn't be too good at that hmmm oooooh I'll do Judo then I can stay in my jammies all day!

    Well, as I've said on this forum before, I don't think it'll be too long before brass banding becomes an Olympic sport. After all, subjective judging on matters like technical merit and artistic impression? Already happens in ice skating......

    Hehe, if they ever made discussing an Olympic sport, she'd have the gold in 5 minutes. No opponent could stand up to her rabble for long. :biggrin:
