archery at lord's

If you're a fan of cricket, which almost certainly requires you to be a resident of the UK or a former member of the British empire, then you'll know that mere mortals never get to play on the hallowed ground that is Lord's. Home of cricket. Home of marvellous, English (and Welsh) cricket.

But those Olympians reading and writing, could have their chance. You may choose to take up the leather on willow sport of gentlemen, compete for your village, win through countless rounds and end up playing a final on the green lush grass.

Alternatively, you could choose like me to pick up a bow and arrow, practise for 6 years, convince a country to give you both citizenship and a place on their Olympic team and compete at Archery in the 2012 Olympics.

So, archery is looking rather favourable - it's a skill based sport, involves little pain, is manageable in 6 years and will be held at Lord's.

  • I often thought a nice game would be archey on a golf course - No not aiming at golfers! But aiming for holes, like golf.
