Firstly let me say that I don't 'do' sport. I don't play it, don't watch it, don't 'get' it. I leave all that stuff to husband. Over that last few days he has been trying to indoctrinate daughter into the ways of the Olympics. This seems to involve putting the TV on as soon as he wakes up and watching people canoeing down concrete chutes, shooting arrows at grass circles and throwing themselves off diving boards and trying to explain it all to daughter.
Today he told daughter excitedly, "The athletics starts soon"
"What's athletics?" she asked
"It's running and jumping and throwing things" he explained
"Welly wanging?" she asked expectantly.
"Well, welly wanging isn't in the Olympics, yet" he said
Yet?! My ears pricked up at this point. I think I need to start a training programme.............
