BBC: London beats Paris to 2012 Games
The 2012 Olympic Games will be held in London, the International Olympic Committee has announced.
Great news! Magic mustard!
Doesn't this mean, as host nation, we get to choose some new sports to trial in the 2012 games? Preferably very obscure sports that we're really good at.
Personally, I think we should choose darts, pub crawling, and missing at penalties. What do you reckon?
Postscript: It's uncanny. I'm in league with the devil, I tell you. A reader points out:
…As the newest recognised sport, darts, under the guidance of the British Darts Organisation, pledges its wholehearted support for the Olympic Games in London and would be proud to be considered as the host nation's 'invitation sport' in 2012.British Darts Organisation chief, Olly Croft
