all they would have to do is go down to Bigg market on a Saturday night with a handful of medals...
Wouldn't be in the true spirit of the sport because you don't need a club down there (The Bigg market is a notorious drinking hole in Newcastle). It's all rather simpler than that. You just say, 'drink up, you're pulled' and away you go.
Joking aside, the sheer focus and determination of those athletes is mind boggling and what it must feel like to bring home a gold medal after years of hard work can only be imagined.
Now how does a young man end up devoting his very being to jumping into a sand pit? Someone needs to show him
the Bigg market!
I'm only a plumber from Cannock...
This is not put on as a public entertainment... it's put on to reach a certain goal.
