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.
