Ginger Sooty, GLOVE PUPPET OF DREAMS provides a daily round-up of events at the London 2012 Olympics that are, quite simply London 2012.
Another great day of sport!
Congratulations to the big lad who won the Judo with the deadly Toyota Corolla throw over another big lad.
I toddled over to Greenwich yesterday to watch the Dressage. The horses prance, skip, tippy toe around and hop. On one leg. Whilst eating a sandwich. Amazing! Doesn’t lend itself to radio though.
Kim Joyeon won the women’s fencing. Lovely bit of lattice-work and a nice privet hedge planted to boot.
A couple of sports to look out for.
1. Handel’s Messiah Shopping Endurance - Choirs search for food secreted around the Olympic Park including a tin of pilchards, carrots (to be chopped for dips), Pink Lady apples, Oxo cubes, tea bags (free trade). A half pound of haslet if found will provide the golden point.
At all times they must recite Handel’s Messiah, including the boring bits.
Expect to see Cameroon, Paraguay and Bhutan (where the sport is a national obsession) to be in the mix for medals.
2. Cliff Diving For Vertigo Sufferers
The cliff is 8 inches from the ground.
Vietnam’s How Hi-Fuk Me is expected to make a splash.
Enjoy The Games!
