Further British success as 6 year-old girl achieves musical chairs triumph at Spanish resort.

Following on from Team GBs first Olympic gold in a sport that no-one normally cares about, 6 year-old Chloe Roberts from Woking has emerged victorious from a closely fought game of musical chairs in Majorca.

Roberts, who is enjoying a two-week break in the resort of Cala Dor, saw off competition from the much fancied German and Dutch participants to claim top prize in front of a crowd of mildly intoxicated grown-ups.

The odds of a British triumph in the contest looked slim after the shock early exit of two of Britains leading contenders, 5 year-old Jake Hudson and 7 year-old Emily Staunton.

Hudson, who had claimed in the build up that he was definitely going to win, was distraught after his elimination, but his parents managed to soften the blow with a strawberry Chupa Chup and a glass of Fanta.

1. I undrstand that the American team have asked for a doping check on Chloe ...

... which may mean that she has to withdraw from tomorrow's Pass-the-Parcel freestyle.

Iniquitous, I calls it.

3. Modern pentathalon

Event 1 - Musical Chairs
Event 2 - Egg and Spoon
Event 3 - Sack Race
Event 4 - Three Legged Race
Event 5 - Find Your Shoes Race (1)

(1) All participants divest themselves of their shoes which are then gathered together in a sack 50 yards from the start. Participants must race to the container, find their own shoes, put them on and then race back to the finish line. Those wearing the wrong shoes are not only disqualified but also get verrucas.

A lot easier to understand than some of the events in the Olympics and a lot more fun to watch.

5. The possibilities are endless ....

.... though I'd have envisaged a Team GB Grand Slam ....

Gold - Damien Hirst for his "Buoyancy" (a pickled swimmer floating in a tank)

Silver - Tracey Emin for "My Sporting Life" (A reconstruction of the school sandpit in which she shagged the sixth form Victor Ludorum circa 1980)

Bronze - David Hockney for "Clouds" (Painting of the Kazakhstan Weight-Lifting Team sharing a crafty Woodbine behind the Velodrome bike-sheds)

Truly a missed opportunity ...

6. I only knew about

from that BBC film Bertie and Dickie. A guy who was 75 years old will doubtless remain the oldest ever to win an Olympic medal when he got a bronze medal for etching. The venue used was the V & A.

8. Amazing

Shame he's out of medal contention - would've have been nice for him to get at least a bronze.
