Thread: Jousting - An Olympic Sport

  1. #1

    Jousting - An Olympic Sport

    Folks, if you do nothing else of importance today, please sign this petition to introduce jousting as a future Olympic sport:

    https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/forms/petition

    Why have golf when the top players won't play as it's not the pinnacle of their sport, when you can have jousting!
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.
    "You have enemies? Good. That means youíve stood up for something, sometime in your life."
    Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874-1965)

    sounds like the ruskys have been jousting quite regularly during the games !!

    Will there be a Melee category in which nation can combat nation with dismounted knights and serfs battling alongside one another? Will the gold medal be replaced by the awarding of a token keepsake from the king's beautiful daughter (or presumably son for the women's event)? Will there be a suitably amended version for the Paralympics? Will stimulants such as mead and saintly relics be banned? More detail required before I can fully support this.

    The English would win all the time. Other countries would come along resplendent in their armour, on their big fine chargers, glinting in the sunshine, then we would kill the lot of them with a hail of arrows from our longbows. Stand by for another gold medal!

    The first Olympics will only feature able-bodied sportsmen and women. The second event will feature Paralympians that qualify having been in the first

    Looks more fun than some others. Tennis for example. Or synchronised drowning. Or speed walking or whatever it's called. Etc etc etc. BORING.
