image for Isle of Wight Planning Own Olympics for 2012 Olympic rings (NOT onion rings)

Sadly not one resident living on the Isle of Wight was successful in buying tickets to attend the 2012 Olympic Games to be held in London, England.

Many residents will be watching the games on their televisions but in order to get that true 'Olympic feeling', Mayors of many towns and villages on the Isle have decided to host The Isle of Wight Games 2012.

They are presently taking suggestions for events.

So far the residents of the Isle have suggested the following events:

Triathlon: hopping a mile, speed walking a mile and skateboarding a mile to the finish.


Synchronized Bingo (same game to take place in 5 villages

Winkle Eating Contest


Tossing the dinner plate

An Olympic Committee has been formed with representatives from all the villages and small towns wishing to take part.

More to follow.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
