Competing the alternative way

It's always a pleasure to receive an email from readers of this website and today's offerings were no different.

One such correspondent offered a new insight into competing at the Games in London 2012. It's apparent from her email to me that she doesn't share an enormous confidence in my ability to excel in sports at the Games and has offered a wistful alternative. She writes :

"How about volunteering to help out at the Games. Once there, engage your fellow volunteers in a game of shove halfpenny or hopskotch. That way, you'll be competing at the Games, if not actually competing".

You can't fault it for logic, but it does feel a little astucious and serpentine. However, needs may, so I'll file this idea and call upon it if required. You never know.


  • Uhm, dare I ask what "shove halfpenny" is?

  • Astucious? Have you swallowed a dictionary?
