image for Chinese name the Olympic sport they don't do well at
Remnants of the 2004 Chinese Olympic Cockle Picking Team

As the Olympics forge ahead....well the Chinese did after all forge their opening fireworks....with great medal winnings by the host country China, the authorities there have admitted there is one sport they wont be competing in for London 2012.

The Chinese have confirmed they wont be entering a team in the Olympic Cockle Picking Race, which is a new category in celebration of the estuary area of London's East End where the games are being held.

Spokesman for the Chinese 2012 contingent, Deepe Fli Lice said:

"On past experience, it would appear that our brave Chinese Cockle Pickers have difficulty in competing without drowning, which could make their medal collection hopes in the Race rather difficult.

"The International Olympic Committe, although an extremely docile committee of suits at the best of times, nevertheless don't take kindly to a coffin on the winners' podium. It somewhat detracts from the animation of the other medal winners.

"We had tried drafting in some Triad Gangmasters to help the team undergo some intense training in Morecambe Bay, but even with whips, baseball bats and cat-o-nine-tails, because of past performance by previous teams, not many of my countrymen seem especially keen to take part."
