100 Metre Coughing Fit

by Tobias Gregson

As Peking's smog problems show no sign of abating, perhaps the Olympic committee would like to consider these alternative events:

  • Flem Spitting
  • Three Day Convulsing
  • The Blind Javelin Throw
  • 200 Metres Hurdles (with gas masks)
  • The Short Jump (off a high cliff)
Something positive might come out of this anyway: if all the competitors take part, despite the smog, there may be many more entrants for the next Para-Olympics.

Alternatively, the world could abandon this farcical waste of time and money right now:
