Dover’s Cotswold Olimpick Games

Fittingly, 2012 will be the 400th anniverary of the Olimpick Games held in Chipping Camden every year, featuring events like ‘Throwing the Sledgehammer’ and ‘Shin-kicking’. Not to be confused with the Olympian Games in Much Wenlock in Shropshire, which, famously, gave Baron de Coubertin the idea.

NOTHING IS USED FOR TO RUN

Jean of the Fountain, one of the florets of the French literature had however affirmed it: “nothing is used for to run, it is necessary to leave at point” a maxim finally applied by London which, launched tardily in its Olympic countryside, gained with the sprint the organization of Plays 2012 vis-a-vis in Paris, engaged as for it in a long marathon. In vain. The English capital was right of its French rival, finally, by 54 votes against 50.

Australia lose again

Even better, this time it was to England. Yes, I know, the one-day game (let alone Twenty20) isn’t the same, and the Aussies probably weren’t properly focussed against Somerset and Bangladesh, and the class of the team has to come out some time. But even without counting any Ashes chickens, it’s been an enjoyable few days.

played two, lost two.

No wonder we thrashed Australia in the Twenty20 game if they can’t even beat Somerset. Come on Australia – don’t stop now, lose to Bangladesh as well.
