See You in the List

Yesterday the BBC ran a story that English Heritage had submitted a petition to have Jousting declared an Olympic sport. I am so excited at the prospect! My first thought was could I compete.

It seems there is a long way to go but what an amazing prospect. There have been far more unusual Olympic sports previously including duelling pistols, tug-of-war (always one of my favourite events at village fetes) Kite flying, architecture, literature, music, painting, sculpture, tandem bike racing...I could go on, suddenly jousting doesn't sound so far fetched does it?
