Have you decided which Olympic event your child is going to win … er, I mean compete in? Cos there’s no time to waste, you know. Of course, it’s going to be tricky, since our children are mostly obese and spend their time playing computer games but with sufficient pushiness – and we parents are so very, very pushy – we might just manage it.
Interesting article here in Der Spiegel about how the powers that be are trawling the country for future winners (cos it’s the winning that matters, not the taking part). I particularly like the bit about mud being okay, as long as there are some nuggets of gold in with it. We mud-people are breathing a sigh of relief.
So if our children are too unfit to go for the flashy events, like sprinting and pole vaulting, and too lardy for the sexy ones, like beach volleyball, maybe they could go for something like table tennis. Now aren’t you glad I supplied that clip with the previous thread? Hope you’ve got started on the training regime ….
